With spring coming up, and wedding season just around the corner, its time to start planning for your besties big night! As the maid of honour, or as part of the team of bridesmaids planning the night, it's your job to make sure the bride has the best night ever!
Do not stress! You are in the right place for all your hens party ideas, inspiration and information.
Whether you are looking to for a packed full weekend, or a laid back spa day, this list has something for every type of bride.
Let the music, champagne and laughter flow as you discover your inner artist in a life drawing class. This unique experience is designed exclusively for your Hens Party, with a personal nude male model who promises not to be offended by any less than flattering artwork, or fits of giggles.
Your group will receive expert guidance from professional art teachers on recreating the male form, while sipping champagne and enjoying all your favourite songs. You can enjoy this experience in the surrounds of a dedicated art studio, or bring the art-party to you. Oh, and bring your cameras for a fun photo session with the model at the end of the class!
Forget those memories of The Full Monty, you won’t want these guys to leave their hat on! This male cabaret performance is an immersive and interactive adults-only experience, set to impress with a spectacular music and light production, thrilling choreography and of course, audience participation. Your Hen will be treated like the Queen she is with a cocktail on arrival, and a special on-stage lapdance (but let’s keep that a surprise!). The winning combination of Australia’s hottest male strippers, stunning performances and a lavish venue, truly make this a night to remember.
From Robin Hoods’ Maid Marian and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, to the red-haired Meridan in Disney Pixar’s Brave, Hollywood has embraced fearless females with bows and arrows. Now it’s your turn to bring the archer goddess dream to life, with your very own coloured bow, foam tipped arrow and… face guard.
True to its name, Archery Attack is a battle and you are the target. Your group will be thrown into the battlefield with only the inflatable obstacle course and your safety gear to protect you. And we make sure the Hen can’t hide with a target strapped to her back!
Be the starlettes of your very own Burlesque performance with this sexy and sassy Hens Party.
You’ll travel back in time for a fully immersive theme night, with your choice of traditional busty Burlesque, 1920’s Charleston flappers, groovy 1960s Go Go dancers or glamorous Vintage Cabaret.
Your hostess will meet you at your chosen venue and kick off the night with themed hair and make-up for the Hen, followed by games and prizes to get the party started. Then let the real fun begin with a guided dance class, before staging your very own burlesque show. Rehearsal for a wedding day flashmob perhaps?
Let the good times beGIN! With a gin and tonic in hand, your Hens Party will be guided on a personal distillery tour and private gin tasting. Don’t know your juniper berries from your citrus peels? Don’t worry. You’ll be treated to an insightful and entertaining masterclass explaining the distillation process, introducing the flavours and botanicals of each gin (with plenty of samples along the way for research purposes), and delving into the cheeky history of the prohibition era. And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, the cocktails certainly will. This is a classy and fun Hens Day experience and it’s available day or night - because it’s always Gin O Clock!
Show your appreciation for the performing arts (and male physique) with a private viewing of Puppetry of the Penis. That’s right! We’re bringing the famous stage show direct to you, performed live in your home, hotel room or another private venue.
You will be treated to front-row seats of this unique display of anatomical acrobatics and junk gymnastics, performed by the talented all-male puppeteers. Adding to the experience is audience participation, a Q&A session, group photos and a food and drinks package.
We don’t want to reveal too much, other than to say the “Loch Ness Monster” does exist, you won’t want to eat the “Hamburger”, and don’t say we didn’t warn you about the “Wedding Ring”.
For the hen who lives on the wilder side. Nice and simple, you jump off a tall structure with an elastic band tied around your ankles. Sound like your vibe? The first one was completed in Bristol, England and idiots and legends have been completing the dangerous activity ever since. The good news is, bungy jumping has never been safer and is completed in some truly picturesque settings. This is a massive advantage as it often takes the focus off you or the hen shitting yourself on the way down.
We could tell you all about the history and etiquette of high tea, which originated among England’s wealthiest classes in the 1840s. But why bore you with the details when there’s cake, cucumber sandwiches and French champagne waiting? This afternoon experience exudes elegance, from the fresh scones with cream and jam, to the classy reserved area just for your Hens Party inside the exquisite venue. This is the perfect experience for the Hen who loves the finer things in life, and it’s sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all of her guests. Who doesn’t love cake!
Private bar Pump up the volume! What better way to prepare for your big day of celebrations than a VIP blow wave - with bubbly! Your luscious locks will be bouncing after this relaxing hair treatment and scalp massage, finished with a professional blow wave to prime your tresses to perfection.
The Hen will love being pampered with the highest quality services, in a relaxed and fun Blow Bar environment. While you’re in the chair, there’s plenty of time to plan the rest of the day’s activities, and some surprises for the Hen.
Don’t let the guys have all the fun! If a ladies day at the Day Spa sounds as entertaining as watching paint dry, the fast-paced action of the paintball battlefield might be more your style.
What better way to show your love for the Hen, than strapping a target to her back and arming everyone in your tribe with 300 paintballs - each!
Combining heart-pumping fun and a killer workout, the carbs won’t count when your pizza lunch is served. Best of all, you’ll leave energised and ready for a night of luxury after this unique day-time event.
Ditch the gym for a day and give pole dancing a spin. In this fun and flirty private class, you’ll learn the basics of pole and perfect a cheeky routine, hand-picked from your selection of pole dancing, lap dancing or strip tease essentials.
You’re sure to nail your very own Showgirls moment, with secrets to achieving the sexiest moves revealed by your personal instructor.
Sip champagne on arrival for a confidence boost, before the special gift is revealed for the guest of honour (including a new bag of tricks for the honeymoon). Whether you’re new to the art of pole dancing, or an old hand, you’ll feel relaxed and ready for anything. And being a fully mobile experience, you can take the party to the pole studio, or it can come to you!

This unique Hens Day experience is filled with love and laughter, ideal to share with the mother of the bride and other family members too, making amazing memories to last a lifetime.
There’s something about throwing axes that just gets the blood pumping, the girls laughing, and unleash the warrior woman in your bride. Trust us, at House of Hens we love it! Axe throwing is not just for burly men with bushy beards, Viking women have wielded axes since before it became a fun weekend activity.
A professional instructor will talk you through different throwing styles, how to hit that bullseye, and even run your group through some competitions and games. This unique experience is like no other.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we couldn’t agree more.
Enjoy your beauty sleep before rolling out of bed for a bottomless brunch with your besties. Discuss the day’s game plan over all the smashed avo and eggs benny your heart (and appetite) desires. Of course, no bottomless brunch is complete without an endless drinks package and delicious cocktails. And you’ll receive the VIP treatment with an area reserved just for your party, with a DJ on-site ready to take your special requests and Hens Day dedications.
A luxury day spa sets the scene for this Hens Day soirée, with a pamper package to satisfy even the most discerning damsel.
Treating your tribe to a blissful beauty treatment is one of the most luxurious ways to celebrate and spoil your Hen, leaving her feeling refreshed and ready for the big day. Select from a menu of luxury treatments including revitalising facials, therapeutic massage, sumptuous skin polishing, and deluxe manicures and pedicures.

A day of wining and dining against a backdrop of rolling hills and grapevines carries an air of sophistication even the mother of the bride will love. But what happens next is up to you!
Keep it classy and brush up on your wine speak, or pop another cork and let the good times roll. There’s plenty of room to gather all the girls together, or spread out and hide the new in-laws from the novelty straws and X-rated games (There’s always one!) Our Hens Party Winery Tour allows you to soak up the sights, and drinks, from the comfort of a privately-chauffeured vehicle. So, slip on your rosé-coloured glasses, sit back and relax. We’re going to make this a day to remember! (Albeit a little hazy the next morning)
Pull your favourite dress out of your closet, find yourself a fascinating fascinator, and head down to the track. With packages including, your own VIP area, a great view of the track, free-flowing bubbly and tasty canapes (or even a buffet lunch) this is the perfect way to celebrate with your hen. You can place some bets, cheer on the horses, and spend your winnings on a big night out with the hen. Although, at House of Hens, we know the day is more about dressing up, enjoying some sunshine, and laughing with your girls.
Cocktails with the girls have never looked (or tasted) this good! Take a seat in your very own private area of a renowned cocktail bar, and prepare to master the art of Mixology!
Enjoy cocktails and canapés as your professional bartender guides your group through every step of crafting the perfect classic cocktail. A great ice-breaker, the cocktail making class is a fun and relaxed way to start your girls night out. We recommended taking notes so you can use your new-found skill set on the bride’s big day. Your Hen will thank you for it!
