How People Down Under Organize Their Bachelor Parties

Peter Minkoff

A bachelor or stag party is a way to honor the groom and prepare an unforgettable send-off into the married life. Now, when it comes to partying, it is well-known that nobody parties like Aussies and Kiwis. They take this, and any type of party for that matter, very seriously, in the sense that there is some seriously fun time involved. If you are the best man, this task inevitably falls upon you – after all, you do know the best what your best friend’s idea of an unforgettable time is. So, let’s see what some of the most popular stag night ideas are, at least according to the males from the Land Down Under.
A grand ol’ adventure time
Aussies and Kiwis have an innate sense of adventure, so one of the primo ideas for true guy’s guys is an adventure-packed day, or even an entire weekend. Team competitions are always a good idea – they’re a great way to step out of your comfort zone and have some manly fun and get that adrenalin going. A list of activities can include (but not be limited to) ‒ paintball, laser tag, airsoft, and ten-pin bowling. Playing a good old game of rugby, soccer or beach volleyball with team uniforms and all should definitely be on the list as well. Of course, you could take a slightly more extreme route and give the future groom a good scare by taking the stag squad to Queenstown ‒ the ultimate place to throw your groom off a ledge, out of a plane, or swing him off a platform with plenty of heart stopping free-fall. A friendly game of poker, whiskey, beer and cigars is definitely the best way to unwind after an adventurous day like this.

Ostentatious and over the top
Sure, one of the oldest stag night ideas in the book is a wild bar crawl, and Australia is certainly not short of pub-crawl-friendly cities just begging to be explored on foot. While you can take the classic route of the enjoyable pub crawl through Sydney’s trendy Rocks district with its many historic pubs and craft beer bars, perhaps it is time to take things up a notch. Book a venue for a private party, complete with drinks and food, and indulge in Australia’s latest and much sought-after trend of Sydney Topless Waitress service. A night with friendly, flirty and almost nude waitresses is not only meant to get your heart rates up, but it also does a great job at turning the volume of the party up, while keeping things much classier than, say, going to a strip club. This kind of event is the perfect balance between classy and naughty.
A classy affair
If the groom has a taste for the finer things in life, there are two amazing options you could combine. The first part consists of wet shaving. This is a fantastic, masculine way to have all the lads looking sharp for the big day. Seek out a gentlemen’s barber and book a time when you can all recline in your chairs together and enjoy a true, old-school professional shave. With the time-old tradition, the cut-throat razors, foam and cologne, and a barber shop that serves beer or whiskey, you have got yourself a perfect classic old-school combo. After a day of manly grooming, wine tasting is the perfect evening to follow and encapsulate the perfect day. Depending on your budget, you can either rent a cottage and organize a wine tasting, or go to the wine country – Australia where you can check out renowned wine regions such as Margaret River, the Barossa Valley and the Hunter Valley.
