Are you currently planning a Brisbane hen’s party and want to go beyond a night on the town? We’ve got you. From unforgettable weekends away to a fun afternoon exploring Brisbane’s food and drink scene, here are five cool hen’s party ideas.
Frolic in Tamborine Mountain’s vineyards
Tamborine Mountain is the gateway to the Scenic Rim, one of Australia’s most underrated wine regions. If you and your girlfriends enjoy winding down with a glass of wine or three, hop onboard our Tamborine Mountain Wine & Dine Tour. We’ll be your designated drivers for the day and take you to three wineries. At Witches Fall Winery you’ll enjoy a tasting and cheese platter before a two-course lunch and tasting at Mason Wines. We also can’t leave the area without sampling the quirky tipples at Tamborine Mountain Distillery, like eucalyptus gum leaf vodka and lilly pilly gin.
Go glam on the Gold Coast
One of the best hen’s party ideas near Brisbane is a Gold Coast girls’ trip. Spend one luxurious night at the five-star Langham Hotel on the beachfront. Then take your pick of fun things to do. Shop until you drop at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, go to a flower crown workshop at Crown of Eden, do a bar crawl of the best Gold Coast rooftop bars or enjoy lunch at Rick Shores. We also visit this iconic restaurant on our Eat & Drink the Gold Coast tour. Other stops include Granddad Jack’s Distillery, a must for gin lovers, and Precinct Brewing.
Have fun on a farm
Girls, are you tired of the same old hen’s party ideas? Say goodbye to the mundane and hello to a farm stay near Brisbane – Mayan Farm! This stunning property is located in the breath-taking Noosa Hinterland, is the perfect place to celebrate with your bridesmaids.
With views that will take your breath away, a central entertaining pavilion, and three outdoor dining areas just waiting for your group gatherings, you’ll be creating memories to last a lifetime. But that’s not all – Mayan Farm is also ready to tantalise your taste buds! Get your chef on in the kitchen, bake up a storm in the pizza oven, or treat yourselves to in-house catering options like picnic hampers and long lunches.
Behold Brisbane’s food scene
Are you ready to indulge the senses on a local foodie adventure? Our Brisbane Artisan Food and Drink Tour is the perfect way to do just that!
We’ll start with a visit to Southside’s Kiki Kiosk, a lush urban oasis-turned-bar, perfect for sipping on a cocktail or two. Next, get ready for a five-course feast featuring contemporary East Asian delights like truffle spring rolls and duck ragu, all served up at Southside’s restaurant. After that, we’ll head over to City Winery for a wine tasting featuring some of Australia’s best grapes.
Now for the cherry on top – your choice! Will it be Granddad Jack’s Distillery or a tasting paddle at Stone & Wood? Either way, you and your bridesmaids are in for a day filled with delectable treats, making this the ultimate hen’s party idea. So why settle for a dull celebration when you can indulge in the best of Brisbane’s food and drink scene?
Become a Byron Bae for the weekend
Of course, we couldn’t forget Byron Bay on a list of cool hen’s party ideas. First, choose from luxe accommodation options like Crystalbrook Byron or Elements of Byron or opt for an Airbnb like Hillside Carool. The activities are truly endless in this seaside hamlet. Start your morning with yoga (Crystalbrook offers complimentary classes) or a sunrise hot air balloon flight. Then pay a visit to Elements’ Osprey Day Spa or Eleme at Crystalbrook Byron or hit the Byron boutiques.
Next, it’s time to focus on food (our favourite topic). We have a three-day Brisbane to Byron Food Trail if you want to keep the party going. Otherwise, our Byron Bay Foodie day tour starts with lunch at Harvest Restaurant, then goes on to a Stone & Wood tasting paddle and a Cape Byron Distillery tasting.
