Canberra’s Best Buck’s Party Ideas

Courtney Carr

Bachelor’s or Buck’s parties – are renowned to be wild drinking binges with strippers…

But what if you want to celebrate getting married in a less…obvious way?

Luckily for you, Canberra’s hospitality and entertainment industry has heaps of options available for those wanting to celebrate a special occasion. Plan your day or night, gather your mates around, and hit up some of these amazing spots.

Hippo Co.

There aren’t too many things more masculine than whiskey (though us ladies will have no problem downing a glass or two ourselves!) and Hippo Co. have an amazing array of over 200 whiskies for the sale at the bar. To cap it off for whiskey enthusiasts, Hippo currently offer an Ultimate Whiskey Tasting session that would be the perfect start to any Buck’s nights!

Trying six of the world’s best whiskies and matching them with different cheeses might sound pretty amazing as it is, but you also get to learn the process that goes behind getting these amazing flavors and might be able to pick up a fact or two about them from their resident whiskey experts. You will definitely get a night fit for a gentleman if you start at Hippo Co.

Canberra Archery Club

Channel the groom’s inner Robin Hood skills by taking an archery lesson for his Buck’s celebrations. The Canberra Archery Club was established in 1962 so they know a thing or two about the tradition and technique of archery.

Boasting “Come and Try” sessions that are perfect for a range of groups, you will be provided with all of the equipment necessary and the supervision of a professional instructor to give you all the tricks and tips on how to shoot straight and get a bulls-eye. Sounds like a great way to spend the day with your guys – and you might even discover a new talent while you are at it!

A perfect place for the groom who loves to do his own home brewing and spend the afternoon drinking beer with the guys is definitely BentSpoke Brewing Co., a microbrewery located in Braddon.

BentSpoke focuses on providing a world-class boutique and craft beer experience and their range is absolutely packed with some delicious ales, ciders and beers. Their menu is a modern take on classic pub foods that go delicious with the beers on sale at the bar, and their easy location makes it a perfect place to have dinner and a few brewsky’s before hitting some of the groom’s favourite bars and pubs.

For the groom who likes to be a bit more adventurous in the outdoors, you can’t go past a unique bachelor party experience that is spending two hours leisurely mountain biking in the mountains and pine forests that surround the Canberra area and following it up with a trip to an outstandingly picturesque winery. There you will get served a tasting platter, and get to sample some of Canberra’s delicious wines. Seriously, what more could you want?

Nothing says Buck’s Party quite like a trip to the local paintballing range and firing bullets of paint at your nearest and dearest. The Delta Force Paintballing fields are one of the best fields in Australia, and you get the chance to try out your aim in some of the most amazing movie-themed scenarios around, including Tomb Raider, the Wild West, Black Hawk Down, Resident Evil and Tropic Thunder.

A full day of paintball action also includes all safety equipment and cameo gear, semi-automatic paint machine guns, paintballs and supervision by one of Delta Force’s professional staff. They will make sure that your groom has one of the best day’s of his life (and probably one of the most painful!) with a unique Buck’s party experience that can be tailored to suite any type of party or style.
