Party Places

Hosting a party doesn’t have to mean hours of preparation and clean up – check out these venues for your next stress-free celebration.

Go golfin’

Whether you’re hitting the driving range or navigating a putt putt course, there’s a lot of fun to be had on the green. Luckily, we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to golfing options, with Holey Moley – in Fortitude Valley and Surfers Paradise – providing wacky, wonderful golfing fun, and Top Golf offering the perfect combination of golfing skill and friendly competition. Both options are ideal for a night out with friends, or a day with the kids.

Mum’s night out

There’s no better time than the silly season to get together with the gals, so catch up for a drink at a rooftop bar around town – Brisbanites, try Up on Constance, and Gold Coasters, give The Island a go – then head to a show or event. Dracula’s in Surfers Paradise is an obvious choice for a wild night out, while Brisbane and Byron Bay have no shortage of live music and theatre productions.


It’s nearly the end of the year, so treat yourself and your party people to something special! Whether it’s a day at the day spa at QT Hotels – they’ve got packages for solo spa-goers, couples and groups – or a shopping spree at The Oasis Broadbeach – we recommend taking your time and indulging in a long brunch or lunch at either venue, regardless of what you’re celebrating!

Go wild

It’s not a celebration without a wild animal or two, which is why choosing a venue with a few fluffy friends or creepy creatures will make your event the party of the year! Dreamworld has everything from tigers to tree kangaroos – with the added bonus of rides and rollercoasters – while an adventure up the mountain could have you come face to face with dinosaurs at Tamborine Mountain’s Thunderbird Park.

For the family

Make it a family fun day with a party at some of these kid-friendly venues! Host an epic skating party at Epic Skate, Tweed Heads, or get tricky at Trick Pic – the coolest, world-first selfie attraction that could see you pose with a blue-ringed octopus or dangle from a skyscraper. Or, let the kids bounce off the walls at Bounce, Inc., Tingalpa – it’s a fool proof way to get the silly season silliness out of their system (for a day, at least).

One-stop (literal) shop

Pacific Fair is well set up for party season – especially when it comes to hosting a corporate shindig. Think Bin 232, Cowch Cocktail and Dessert Bar, Betty’s Burgers and iPlay. All offer special group deals in the lead up to Christmas. There are more details on the Pacific Fair website under “What’s on”.
