What happens on a Bucks Night?
What is a bucks party? It is an opportunity for one last hurrah and raucous celebration before the Buck courageously takes up the ball and chain of matrimony. His life is about to undergo a momentous transformation and you’re responsible for giving him a send off he’ll remember for the rest of his days.
Although it can be held on just one night, Bucks parties may keep pumping over a weekend or beyond for those with a seriously hardened liver and a leave pass from their significant other.
Bucks parties typically get pretty loose, so a bit of forward bucks party planning on who to invite is well worth the effort. Although you and your mates might think it’s piss-funny to see the Buck in compromising positions you should rethink inviting family.
If you involve family it can make for some pretty awkward conversations when the Buck is sitting opposite Uncle Pete at next years Christmas lunch after he’s copped an eyeful of the Bucks’s rod and tackle. Most importantly, don’t invite the ladies…it’s your time to let loose and have some unscrutinised fun.

Bucks Party Ideas and Themes
To help a bucks party off to a flying start, try to come up with an idea that’s guaranteed to break the ice. Many buck party organisers start with a fancy dress idea. It’s great for camaraderie and especially good for finding your lost mates in a crowd after they’ve stumbled off after a few too many.
You can have a great laugh beforehand assembling your bucks party costumes. For maximum impact, keep it secret from the groom until just before the bucks party is about to kick off, then surprise him with the regalia he has to wear.
Bucks party ideas can include going on a pub crawl, go-karting, quad-biking, paintball or a brewery tour. Use your imagination but whatever you fix on will probably determine your starting venue.

Best Bucks Party Destinations and Venues
Australia’s has many great night spots and awesome scenery you’ll be spoilt for choice but matching a venue to your theme is the key to success. A pirate party would go down a treat on a boat cruise round Byron Bay followed by a barbie on the beach. Heading for the Candy Club in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley is an ideal excuse for a James Bond roulette night.
Other popular destinations include Airlie Beach with the Great Barrier Reef as a backdrop while you party at Magnum’s Hotel or one of the great little pubs in the area.
Popular bucks party venues include the rooftop bars of Perth’s thriving nightlife, Sydney’s pubs at the Rocks or try Rundle Mall in Adelaide. For a touch of the tropics there’s the Gold Coast’s Cavill Avenue.

Things to do for Bucks Parties
To prevent your bucks party experiencing a dip once the initial excitement has worn off, make sure you have a set of challenges or other events lined up to keep the action flowing.
Although we at PeachE have no issue with sinking piss with your mates for a whole day, some extra-curricular fun really adds to the excitement and ensures all attendees are entertained. Pub golf, drinking games, a set of challenges for the Buck and Groomsmen are all ideas to keep the party pumping.
One idea is drawing lots to see if anyone can beat the most muscle bound nightclub bouncer at arm wrestling – just don’t send your lippy mate or one of the new venues will likely be the emergency ward.
When you have a bunch of typical red-blooded males, some adult entertainment in the evening generally doesn’t go amiss. As fun as it is staring at your mates all day, some T&A never goes astray!
