Are you on the hunt for some different hen’s party ideas? Is the usual nightclub hen’s night out not the bride’s cup of tea? If you’re the maid of honour or in the bridesmaid crew, it’s your job to plan a hen’s party that wows the bride.
And let’s face it… Everyone enjoys feeling a bit fancy. So the hen party is the perfect opportunity to indulge in the good life.
From luxurious destinations, pamper sessions, weekend getaways, and sumptuous foodie trails… We’ve got a list of 5 hen’s party ideas to impress even your most luxe-loving bestie.
1. Go On A Scenic Winery Adventure
Nothing says class like a day of gourmet food and wine in a beautiful setting. And a short trip from Brisbane can take you to some of the most scenic wineries in Queensland.
The Scenic Rim is approximately an hour or so drive from Brisbane. The area offers an array of wineries, distilleries, and breweries specialising in locally produced fare.
A great hen’s party idea is a guided tour. It also takes the hassle out of planning. Kiff & Culture’s Tamborine Mountain Wine & Dine adventure will take your hen’s on a tour of 3 of the best wineries in the region.
Retreat into the rainforest and celebrate the upcoming nuptials with libations. You’ll be treated to a decadent cheese platter, snacks, and a 2-course lunch and wine tastings.
If you are after beautiful vistas to take in while you wine and dine, the Scenic Rim delivers. It’s the perfect backdrop for gram-worthy snaps. Pro tip: If feeling particularly luxurious, why not also treat the hen to a Gold Coast Hinterland weekend retreat.
2. Treat the Gals With a Luxurious Hen’s Spa Day
Nothing makes you feel more luxe than a day at the spa. Having an uber lavish spa day with friends is a fantastic alternative to the usual hen’s night out.
It’s also great for priming skin for the big day. And unwinding from wedding planning stress.
In Brisbane, there are many locations that offer decadent spa packages. A fave is Kailo Medi Spa located in the Calile Hotel. This beautiful modern hotel in the heart of inner-city Brisbane is a mini oasis. And their day spa offers the cutting edge in indulgent spa and beauty treatments.
Located on James Street in the Fortitude Valley, you’ll also be a stone’s throw away from premier shopping, restaurants, and bars.
3. Enjoy An Upscale Hen’s Weekend Getaway
Assemble the gang, pack a weekend bag, and enjoy one of the many beachside resorts in sunny Queensland.
For the ultimate in upscale weekend retreats, visit Halcyon House. Located on the Tweed Coast, Halcyon House is a sublimely decorated award-winning beachside resort.
It has everything you need to have the perfect hen’s weekend getaway. Enjoy their day spa, critically acclaimed restaurant, opulent poolside setting, or simply relax at Cabarita Beach.
Or maybe you’d like to have the perfect weekend getaway planned for you? Kiff and Culture’s Brisbane to Byron Food Trail has you covered. It’s a 3-day adventure filled with coastal, rainforest, and hinterland panoramas.
The tour includes culinary delights, scenic winery trips, 5-star resort accommodation, an Indigenous bush tucker tour, and much more! Our knowledgeable and friendly guide will take care of everything and show you the best spots.
All you need to do is unwind and enjoy the perfect hen’s weekend getaway.
4. Get Creative With A Sip And Paint Workshop
If a weekend away is off the cards, how about finding your inner artist while celebrating the hen. All over Brisbane, there are many sip and paint workshops to choose from. Enjoy a refreshing beverage while you explore your creativity in a fun setting.
Frida’s offers private painting workshops in a luxe and beautifully decorated studio. Share a glass of wine and gourmet snacks with friends while you channel Picasso. You can BYO nibbles or Frida’s can supply an impressive spread from local providers.
And if you want to keep the party rolling, you can! Frida’s is located in the vibrant suburb of Paddington. So you’ll have a line-up of top restaurants and bars within walking distance.
5. Ladies Who Lunch… In Style
Maybe the bride can’t quite afford a custom Versace bridal gown like Britney. But she can experience a taste of couture glamour at Palazzo Versace on the Gold Coast.
Enjoy a cocktail, tapas, or the signature Sparkling Couture High Tea at the Le Jardin restaurant.
Overlooking the stunning pool, Le Jardin is furnished in opulent Versace tapestries and serves its menu on Versace fine china.
Want to make a weekend of it? Palazzo Versace is a 5-star hotel with 200 lavish suites all decked out in Versace home decor. Located between Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast Broadwater, the hotel offers plenty of sun-drenched locales to take in.
The Gold Coast is also the perfect launching destination for an array of day trips and activities. While you’re there, take a trip along the endless coastline or into the hinterland.
