Day Time Bucks Ideas Melbourne

melbourne day time activities ideas for buck parties

An important part of the bucks party is the day time activities for the bucks group. Now, these must be carefully calculated to ensure maximum laughter and memories. There is an obvious flow when arranging a bucks party, including certain things you can’t do in the day, that you can the night and vice versa, so the team has broken it down for you to ensure a smooth and stress free event. The day determines how the rest of the night will turn out, so a lot of planning usually goes into the first day, especially if it is a 1 day bucks party. If you are lucky enough to be able to spread your celebration across 2 days, your first day sets the tone for the remainder of the event. These day time bucks ideas spread out around Melbourne will give you a great idea of what options you have when it comes to planning a bucks party in Melbourne.

Go Kart Racing in Melbourne

Nothing beats the traditional bucks idea of getting your group of mates together and busting out a few laps around a go-kart track. Put the pedal to the metal and bring out your racing skills on the bucks day to see who can bring the Mario Kart skills to real life. A perfect way to spend a few hours throughout the day in a competitive environment with the bucks group. Ideal for those groups wanting to work up a bit of adrenaline and friendly banter before the drinking kicks off. A bit of friendly adrenaline fuelled activity is the perfect way to get the party started! No bucks group is too big or small when it comes to hitting the racetrack, so what are you waiting for? This activity will have even the less competitive wanting to compete and win on the track!

Try out Bubble Soccer

bubble soccer melbourne bucks activities

Bubble Soccer is the latest craze around Melbourne. Situated on an open field, dressed in large Zorb blow up bubbles, the aim of the game is the same as soccer with a few alterations on the rules. Generally speaking ramming into your mates is not accepted in soccer but with this game running and jumping is highly encouraged. Let’s just say, the competitor who can balance the roughness with coordinated soccer will be the winner. The best part? No soccer skills required. Watch your mates competitive streak come out as you see them go flying. The cardio levels may definitely come into play when running around with a bit of extra weight. Probably not the best idea in the morning with a raging hangover, but a great way to kick off the celebrations with a bang… or crash! This activity is definitely for those who don’t mind playing a little dirty (especially when it comes to defending).

Shoot some arrows with an Archery day

Let’s be realistic here, a group of testosterone fuelled guys away from their wives and partners for a day… they’ll be looking to let off some steam! So to get them focused, what a better way than with a bow and arrow. Your bucks group will be out on an archery range shooting at targets, testing out the hand eye coordination of the group to see who comes out victorious. Don’t worry if you’re not up to Robin Hood status, experienced team members are close by to show you how to hit a perfect bullseye! Once you hit that first target, you’ll be hooked! You can always add a dress-up element, however, obviously antics have to be kept to a minimum while playing with weapons. An activity that’ll have you unleash your competitiveness for ultimate bragging rights later.

Try out Axe Throwing

Going to a day bar is just so cliché, leave that for later! Instead bust out your inner Jason Mamoa or Thor and head down to the indoor axe throwing centre in Melbourne for a unique bucks party experience with the buck. You’ll be provided a safety briefing before you jump into your fence protected lane, along with training throughout the session for free if needed. So don’t worry if you’ve never wielded an axe before – the aim is to ensure you have a great time with a new experience. With a range of axes from hatchets to tomahawks, you’ll be an ‘axe-pert’ in no time once you have the technique and basics under control.  It’s worthwhile if you are looking for something competitive (and sober) to get your bucks day started, as no drinking is permitted while using weapons. To make the stakes higher, why not make the worst aim buy the next round of drinks at the next activity?

Take to the Paintball Skirmish fields

Paintball is one of the most iconic and popular bucks party activities that is pretty common in modern day bucks parties. The typical Protect the Bride, Rescue the Bride or The Bucks Run are bucks group favourites. Gear up with your war paint, add a few extra layers of clothing (dress the buck up in something outrageous/embarrassing!) and get your balls back from your wife because you are going to need them. Let’s just say you will definitely have a few bruises to start off the night. All equipment and protection are all waiting for you there, so all you have to do is get your aim on and fire! A great way to get some video content of the buck with a target on his back, usually making for epic memories. Anyone who has a large bucks group will love this as it’s easy to get transfers to and from the location, as well the venues being large enough to cater for big groups. Paintball Games – Protect the VIP, The Buck Run, Super Buck, Rescue the Bride and Dress him up.

Go on a Bucks Party Cruise

The ultimate way to kick start your bucks – or even finish off an afternoon of fun leading into the evening – is by adding a boat cruise down the waters of the mighty Yarra in Melbourne. Either dress up or dress down, it’s your choice, as it’s only your group on board. However you get to see Melbourne, we think the best way is by travelling up the river with a few bevys and snacks on board for the bucks group. Throw in a few sneaky ladies to keep all the boys hydrated and of course entertained, it is a bucks party after all! This isn’t one of our most popular choices for no reason! A privately chartered cruise makes for a great picture before the night or weekend gets messy.

Things to Consider for your Melbourne Bucks Party

  • Time of the Year – Choosing the best season of the year all comes down to preference. Melbourne is known for its fours seasons in one day but generally pretty chilly and under 10 degrees frequently throughout winter. It can also get up to above 30 degrees in the warmer months. Pack for all occasions. It never hurts to take a jacket outside of the summer months.
  • Budget – Depending on where you decide to stay and how close to the CBD, prices are reasonably expensive being a major city. Ensuring you have a big enough budget for the experience you are wanting is a key component to what you will be able to do.
  • Location – Do you want to stay in the CBD, outer circle of the CBD, on the river or outer suburbs? These locations will also change the pricing of your food and drinking expenses if dining out.
  • Accommodation – Planning in advance is the key to successful bucks accomodation. Getting numbers and the group to pay ahead of time ensures that the somewhat headache of the planning can be streamlined to accommodate large groups.
  • Activities – Number of activities is usually the biggest cost multiplier here. The more you want to do, the more it’s going to cost. So choose the experiences and activities you want to engage in wisely with the group on the big day.
  • Transport – Understand your travel situation ahead of time and don’t leave it to the last minute. Be clear about how the group plans to get around if that requires flights, cabs, hummers or ubers. It’s a cost you need to factor in from  the moment you arrive at the get off the plane.
