If you’re mate is getting married soon and you have been given the job of best man, it’s likely you will need to organise the bucks party for him. This “final celebration” before tying the knot is the last chance to blow away any cob webs and have a memorable time with the boys.
So, there can be a lot of pressure on the organiser of the bucks party to do not just a good job, but a great job. Coming up with fun ideas that the whole group can enjoy is very important, and you don’t want to end up doing the old boring drinking at the pub option.
Here are some of the best bucks party ideas if you’re from Melbourne:
A Day at the Races
This is becoming a very popular bucks idea. Flemington, Moonee Valley and Caulfield Racecourse all cater to large groups of men celebrating. And there is no dress code in general admission, so you can wear whatever you like, and make the bucks outfit as crazy as possible.
If budget allows, I would highly recommend organising a sit down lunch. Not only does this give you’re a permanent meeting (and resting) point throughout the day, it ensures everyone gets a good feed which is important when you’re going to be partying until all hours of the night. These dining options come with great drinks packages too so it’s well worth looking into.
As well as the main tracks, you might also look at country racing. These are a lot more laid back and you can make it into a weekend away.
A Party Boat Cruise
Sometimes finding a suitable venue for the bucks night is half the battle. And dealing with other randoms can be annoying, as well as lining up for drinks. A party boat cruise allows you to get your own private venue – on the water! Sailing down the Yarra River or out on the bay is definitely something everyone will enjoy. You can bring your own alcohol and also get food fully catered. The standard cruise goes for 3 hours so it can be the perfect idea to start the event, and then kick on in the CBD into the night.

Pizza making class
Everyone loves pizza and when you’re on a bucks party it means you can eat some delicious junk food at the end of the activity. Attendees will get taught the art of pizza making by a professional Italian chef and engage in a fun team challenge where you can win prizes.
The Grass is Greener
Golf and beers are two words that go perfectly together. And so, it makes an ideal bucks activity. Where The Grass is Greener involves 9 holes of golf with club, cart and caddy hire, a private minibus to get you to and from the venue and a range of craft beers and lunch. The Ross Watson designed championship course is an experience your attendees will remember forever. Even for those who don’t like golf, there is plenty of stuff to enjoy.
What better way to send a friend into marriage than by shooting paint pellets at him from close range. Paintball allows you to embrace your testosterone and unleash your inner battle mode. Jam packed with strategy, stealth and speed, the skirmish will keep everyone on their toes. And followed by lunch and spirits.
