The hens night party is a modern-day tradition that has been passed on from generation to generation. A hens party provides the bride-to-be with an opportunity to let her hair down and have some fun before being tied up [figuratively speaking] with a wedding.
To get your creative juices flowing, check out this list of fantastic hen's party ideas to do in Brisbane:

A bachelorette party becomes a lot more exciting when there are clues for the girls to follow!

This is also a great way of making new friends amongst strangers who might be tagging along for the party.
Hens Night Laser Tag
Go back to childhood by being let loose in a laser tag arena. There will be plenty of "ouch's" and "owww's" while running around avoiding beams of light. A hens party is the perfect place for some good, clean fun!
Take a Cooking Class
Learn how to cook some delicious dishes with friends at a cooking class held at Vanilla Zulu in Teneriffe.
