Why Have your Hens in Melbourne?

Coffee, shopping, spas, bars, nightlife… did we mention the shopping?

Our party destinations are like our children, we’re not allowed to have a favourite (even if we do.)

But we CAN say Melbourne is a city that truly offers something for everyone, making it a perfect destination for your Hens Party or girls weekend away.

You’ll find everything from boutique bars and VIP nightclubs, luxury day spas and hair and beauty salons, to adrenaline-fuelled daytime activities, naughty night-time entertainment, and food and wine tours within a short, chauffeured drive of the city,

If you’re not a local, Melbourne offers a vast array of inner-city apartments and luxury high-rise accommodation, such as the riverside Crown Melbourne stretching along the Yarra.

There you’ll find five star hotels, award-winning dining and indulgent day spa experiences as well as live (and even nude) entertainment.

If you’re a sports fan, consider timing your Hens Party to coincide with any of the major dates on Melbourne’s action-packed events calendar, including the Australian Open in January, the Formula 1 Grand Prix in March, the AFL Grand Final in September or the Melbourne Cup in November.

Top Tips and Ideas

Melbourne’s tram network provides one of the best ways to get around this bustling city, and trams within the CBD boundaries are free! On arrival in Melbourne, be sure to grab a Myki card at a train station like Southern Cross, or any 7-Eleven convenience store, and use it to tap on and off the trams you travel on. Remember to top-up your credit so you don’t get fined for fare evading (the undercover transport authorities probably won’t share the same enthusiasm for your hens party as we do!)

Melbourne can be beautiful one day, and freezing the next, so check the forecast and pack for all conditions. You can keep warm by sipping a latte and heading out on foot to explore the iconic inner-city laneways, like the street-art lined Degraves Street.

But it’s not all about the CBD. Melbourne’s suburbs are thriving community hubs, each with their own unique personality and eccentricities. Be sure to check out Richmond for historic pubs, Fitzroy for vegan eats, LGBTIQ+ friendly venues and an alternative nightlife scene, and Carlton’s leafy Lygon Street for a taste of Italy.

No trip to Melbourne is complete without a visit to St Kilda, home to Melbourne’s iconic Luna Park, the historic Palais Theatre and of course - the beach! Also popular is the Queen Victoria Market, brimming with gifts, souvenirs, food and bargain fashion buys.

Baby When the Lights Go Out

Melbourne’s nightlife is among the best in Australia, offering everything from stadium music performances by major international touring acts, to local acoustic sessions at the smallest underground bars. The southern city is home to themed bars including a whimsical world of fantasy and storybook settings, as well as dedicated gin bars, rum bars, whisky bars, microbreweries, elegant cocktail bars and speakeasies reminiscent of the prohibition era.

You’ll find nightclubs showcasing world famous DJ’s and VIP guest lists, and a diverse range of theatres and live performance venues, including the adult variety.

Male burlesque and cabaret shows, topless waiters, and strip clubs designed to entertain and delight female guests are all on the menu when the lights go out in Melbourne.
