Party on Morpheus

Buck’s night, stag night, bachelor party. Whatever you call it, it’s meant to be the big party for your mate.
Whether you choose to include the signature strippers or not (we don’t judge) or go down The Hangover route (again, no judgement), you can still buck the trend by adding an activity during the day that will thrill, challenge or excite the stallion of the event.
Here are a few we prepared earlier:

There's no better way to celebrate your bucks party with your mates than hiring a boat and cruising throughout the afternoon and into the evening. Charter cruises can fit up to 100 people and there's a range of activities available on board.
A no brainer, really. While a DIY pub crawl is the easy option, this is your mate’s big night as a single gentleman and so it shouldn’t be treated like just another Saturday night with the blokes. Up your game and book a walking pub crawl through The Rocks in Sydney or special brewery tour around Matilda Bay Brewery.
Australia is a melting pot of breweries and microbreweries, so the world really is your oyster.
Check out the Australian Wine and Beers directory to give you an idea of what’s around.

Get everyone involved with an activity that involves strategy, teamwork and ingenuity!
Test your mates’ ability to problem solve their way out of an escape room, team up to conquer all in a game of laser tag or paintball or take it to the field for a non-competitive day of clay shooting or archery.
Experience sites like Adrenaline are a great place to see what’s available near you.
You might also like to hit up a deals website, which often have activities like bubble soccer and rock-climbing sessions.
Speed up his heart rate and kick the activities up a notch with an adrenaline-inducing experience.
What hasn't he done yet? What's on his bucket list? C'mon you've got to have some idea by now!
All we can say is: get creative. We DARE you.
Tear down those stereotypes and throw him and his mates into the kitchen to cook up a storm of their favourite cuisine.
Steer away from specific cuisines or techniques so that everyone attending, no matter their level or interest, can get something out of it. Think beer and barbecue, American smoking, brew-your-own beer and pizza making classes and you’ll be right.

Shake, stir and mix things up for his bucks with a boozy cocktail class.
You'll get to skill up and drink up together and when you're pros, you can start building your own concoctions. For the lucky man to taste test, obviously.
Get creative. We know we would.ClassBento offers classes in Sydney which can be tailored for large groups.
Speaking of food, if the act of cooking isn’t of interest to your party, the act of eating should be. (Everyone’s gotta eat, right?)
Pick a restaurant that he’s been raving about for ages but has never had a chance to eat at, or a cuisine that he absolutely loves and find the creme de la creme of that cuisine in your destination. Daily deal sites like OurDeal and Groupon often have discounted specials and are a good place to start scouting for a venue.
Shake it up a bit and go on a foodie walking tour around your city. You’ll get insights into the venues and get a VIP tasting and drinking treatment. It’s the best of all worlds.
Rev heads and motoring enthusiasts have a wealth of options available to them when it comes to pushing the throttle to the max. Adrenaline in particular offers more than its fair share of options including V8 experiences, rally driving, European supercar driving, defensive driving, drifting, off-road racing, F1 racing, performance driving, drag racing, muscle car driving, tank rides, stunt rides, Porsche driving and more.
For a longer-lived experience, you can rent a classic car or luxury car for the day to drive around like a boss.
It’s been said that buck’s and hen’s nights are the perfect time to make the guest of honour suffer as much as possible. If you feel the same way then pushing that fear factor mark on your mate’s party is exactly what the doctor ordered.
He have a fear of heights? Get him on a skydive, bungee jump or tree top climb.
Afraid of the great predators of the world? Throw him into a shark or croc tank! Afraid of flying? There are stunt flying experiences for that, too.
We’ll leave the rest up to you.
Good cigars, good whiskey, good cars. It’s time to spoil that top bloke with the finer things in life. Book out a plush room in a quality bar or restaurant like The Potting Shed in Alexandria has a private liquor den, Eau de Vie in Sydney has a whiskey room and 1806 in Melbourne has a hidden understudy cocktail bar.
Oh, did we forget to mention the cigar bars around town? Hit up The Cuban Place or Cohibar in Sydney or Siglo or Collins Quarter in Melbourne to satisfy those cravings.
As to swanky rides, have you not heard of UberBLACK?

For sportier groups, make the theme of the day outdoor sports. Then organise a day on the green, fishing trip or fitness course experience. On a budget? Keep it low-key and book a court to play a game of basketball or a field to kick the footy around.
For a more relaxed event, treat the team to premium reserve tickets to a big game. Start by searching Viagogo to see what golden tickets are up for grabs. You never know, you might even score private box tickets!
Speaking of, there’s no reason you shouldn’t posh-up the day by booking a private box for the gang at the game. With endless food and drink options, naturally.
Pull out the tux and splash the cash by going all out at the casino… with a grand twist. Instead of rolling with the public, book your own private poker room - or at least table, complete with a private dealer and waiter.
Sydney’s The Star has a swanky Sovereign Room that, though is by invite, is perfect for the occasion. Just putting that out there...
If all else fails, you can hire a croupier, roulette table and more from party services like Planet Entertainment.
