Mention that you’re planning a Gold Coast bucks party and it probably conjures up images of a wild  bucks party that demands living up to the saying “what happens on tour, stays on tour”. And rightly so too. The Gold Coast has worked hard to earn its reputation. Glitz, glamour, excess. Pretty much anything goes in Australia’s sin city. But brace yourself, because you can also slow things right down and get the crew to relax a little as well.

Nightlife that’s all day long

Strippers, gentleman clubs and sexy women can be found up and down the Gold Coast’s entertainment precincts. Night clubs, bars, pool halls and the casino will make sure the night’s entertainment is well rounded. No matter what type of night life you’re after, the Gold Coast delivers.

Hungry? A Gold Coast bucks party can be treated to a classy 5 star meal at one of the many great restaurants, or chow down on a badly packed kebab if that’s more your thing. Buffets are also close at hand if you need to eat all you can eat and beach yourself like a whale on the beach.

But lets not forget that the Gold Coast is one of Australia’s best beach locations. No matter what you and the boys are looking to do for the buck, if it’s ocean related the Gold Coast will deliver. A day on the sand playing beach cricket, learning to surf, throwing around some jet skis or flips and tricks on a fly-board, its all at your finger tips.

There are fast cars for hire, theme and bungee parks for adrenaline, and MeterMaids in gold bikinis to lower your chances of a getting parking tickets.

Slow down a Gold Coast bucks party if you prefer

But the great thing about a Gold Coast bucks party is that you can make it a totally clean party, keeping away from strippers, drinking and partying if that’s what the buck prefers. You can hang out at the beach and take some surfing lessons, treat the boys to a man-spa, hit the adventure sports all around the region or head up to the hinterlands for a real change in pace.

There are so many things to do on Australia’s glitter strip. From planning a quite bachelor party escape you can invite the father-in-law-to-be to, to throwing a no-holds-barred crazy night out where you wake up with a tiger in the bathroom, a Gold Coast bucks party really can deliver it all.

If you can imagine it, you can probably do it on the coast… But remember, illegal is still illegal, even in the city of sin.
