Why have your Hens in Brisbane?
Brisbane offers all the benefits of a big city, with the beauty of a regional riverside town. That means less time in traffic, and more time clinking champagne glasses in the waterfront bars. It’s also centrally located on Australia’s east coast, ideal for hens parties with guests travelling from both north and south. If you’re feeling fit, it’s only a short drive to explore the region’s National Parks and mountains including Mt Coot-tha and Mt Gravatt, Mt Tempest, Mermaid Mountain and Glass House Mountains. If it’s a relaxing getaway you’re after, Brisbane brings the goods with day spas, winery tours, high tea and chocolate making classes. You could see a show, ranging from enriching art and theatre experiences, to stand-up comedy and some of Australia’s hottest male strippers. When it’s time to satisfy your other appetite, you’ll find alfresco dining on the Eagle Street Pier, the popular restaurant and bar strip at South Bank and West End, and plenty of eateries and cafes with cult followings in Fortitude Valley, Paddington and New Farm.
Top Tips and Ideas
Your Hens Party could hitch a ride on a helicopter or a hot air balloon and head for the Hinterland, to see the beautiful Brisbane region from a whole new perspective. Then jump aboard a food or winery tour to sample (or indulge in) the region’s finest drops.
Bachelorettes will find plenty to keep them busy within a short distance of Brisbane, visiting nearby attractions like Stradbroke Island, Australia Zoo, Moreton Bay and Wivenhoe Dam, or tango your way to Tangalooma for quad biking, or a dolphin and whale watching cruise.
