It’s time to gather the girls and celebrate! But rather than another night out on the town, why not plan a unique weekend away instead? Hen party weekends away are the perfect opportunity to celebrate and connect with your girlfriends before the next chapter begins.
Whether your ideal hens weekend is an escape to your favourite city, a trip to the vineyards, or some bubbles and relaxation; Wondrous Stays will have the accommodation for you. Listed below are just 5 of the amazing options available, with many more on offer around Australia and, if you’re keen to take the party abroad, the world!
Perched on the rooftop of a nondescript Melbourne carpark, this accommodation is like no hotel you’ve ever been to. Spend your weekend enjoying Melbourne’s shopping, markets, cafes and bar scene before retiring to your luxurious Airstream.
The 6 chrome Airstream trailers, completely refitted as designer urban accommodation, can be hired for your hens getaway.
MACEDON RANGES, VICTORIA
Escape the city and explore the Macedon Ranges wine country; spending the weekend in an 1890’s homestead with glorious views across the vineyards.
This property is only 40 minutes from Melbourne Airport and set upon 100 acres. It’s the perfect location for a relaxing weekend of massages, visiting cellar doors, and strolling around local markets with your friends.
SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES
Spend the weekend in one of Sydney’s oldest heritage locations. Hidden amongst native Australian bushland with stunning views overlooking Sydney Harbour and the skyline of modern Sydney on the horizon, you can feel like you are removed from the hustle and bustle of city but be just a short ferry ride away.
There are accommodation options to suit any group size, offering a truly unique setting to experience relaxation and rejuvenation. The Station offers both retreat suites and a 3-bedroom historical cottage.
Make your historical hens a weekend to remember by combining it with a thrilling Ghostly Encounters Tour that runs every night from 8.00pm!

About to walk down the aisle? Why not stay in a church!
