The land down under: Top five places to visit in Australia for your bachelorette

From Vegas to Magic Mike, and insane Mediterranean getaways; bachelorette weekends are getting out of hand – and we aren’t complaining. If you’ve found yourself looking to splurge on your last weekend of freedom, then heading down under to the wondrous world of Australia boasts many options for you.

There are intense heat waves for some fun in the sun, amazing brunch spots that Aussies are renowned for, and a party scene to die for. Let’s dive into a jam-packed weekend full of excitement and look into five things for you to do in the Gold Coast, Australia.

What is the Gold Coast known for?

Australia’s Gold Coast is loved by backpackers, families and holiday makers; and it’s no wonder why, given that it’s famous for its sprawling beaches, amazing surf, shopping, theme park attractions, and night out spots. Maintaining the country’s number one tourist spot with 10 million visitors each year, it’s safe to say that your bachelorette weekend is sure to be a success here. 

The Gold Coast sits in Queensland, which is to the south of Brisbane, Australia’s capital. The hustle and bustle of the area is a perfect all-rounder treat, given that you’re one hour away from dabbling in some crypto blackjack at Joe Fortune’s for your evening events, and then right on the beach for the daytime relaxing. 

  1. Brunching 

We all know a lady that loves to brunch, but have you heard of an Aussie who doesn’t? Nope? That’s probably why Australia is so renowned for their hipster brunch spots, which forge the perfect morning kick off for any bride-to-be. Take yourself to the drool-worthy Elk Espresso, to begin your weekend like a champ. Opt for a glorious bloody Mary and go bottomless for some tipsy fun with friends. The arty and different style vibe gives you the best Instagram pictures for all the memories with your girls. 

The food is also to shout home about, as the ever-changing seasonal menu is packed full of all the goodness. Giving the rest of the brunch spots in the area a run for its money it’s certainly one to add on the agenda when you make your way over. 

  1. Beaching 

After your boozy brunch you can cross the oasis of a road onto the golden sands of the Gold Coast. Sit back, relax and recharge your batteries with some sunshine, fun, and all your favorite people. Take a picnic for when the alcohol wears off and grab some party games to get the festivities of the bachelorette started. Don’t forget to wear your SPF, as the tropical heat and reflection in the sea will have you golden in no time. 

  1. Massaging 

Not always a night owl? That’s okay. After the beach you can take you and your girls off to Ripple Gold Coast Massage, where your pre wedding days will be pumped with pampering. This service can come to your hotel, air bnb and anywhere you are staying, so you and your bachelorette ladies can get a full pamper before your big night out. Try a hot stone massage before the fun to make sure you’re cool, calm and collected; or a de-stress session the day after too many drinks and you’ll be all set and ready to go again.

  1. Sky Dining 

Horizon Sky Dining is an all-new restaurant in Queensland that is the ultimate culinary journey and celebration hotspot. Start your evening affairs like a superstar and head up to the sky-high, 360-degree views of the Gold Coast skyline.

Nestled in the heart of surfers’ paradise, this new restaurant is a sight to see for an incredibly special moment. The immersive experience revolves as you dine, so you get the ultimate view, and picture-perfect moment. Grab a few tipples (or ten) here and start your bachelorette weekend off with a bang.

It’s not just the view that people are raving about, the food is thought up by a culinary expert who has created a tantalizingly delicious experience of a seafood buffet, and eloquent cocktail pairings – what more could you want?

  1. Sip and Dance

We all know that bachelorettes usually incur some kind of dancing on their last weekend of freedom, but is it usually them doing the dancing? We think not. Try something new with the Sip and Dance event, where you can really let your hair down, and dance around with your favorite people.

Over three hours you can choose between burlesque, fifty shades, Beyonce and more, and get into the groove with endless amounts of bubbles for the Dutch courage. Between the dancing there will be more nibbles dished around, so you can forget the evening hunger with this activity; and really let your hair down. 

No matter what you choose, the Gold Coast is beaming with choices for you to enjoy your special day. There are endless clubs, casino’s and evening activities that you can delve into, and make it a memory that lasts forever.
