One Day’s Top 5 Hen’s Day Alternatives


Throw away the penis straws and leave the topless waiters behind. One Day has hand picked five of our favourite Hens Day alternatives for you and your lovely ladies to enjoy.


What better way to celebrate with your ladies than getting down to the coast for a weekend away. Airbnb hosts a range of weekend getaway homes suitable for all budgets. Whether you spend the day lounging by the pool or visiting a local winery or eatery for a spot of lunch and dinner we absolutely love this as a Hens Day Alternative.


With the Spring Racing Carnival as one of Melbourne’s favourite social events why not arrange a Nursery Car park for you and the girls to enjoy. Frock up and enjoy a glass of champagne or two with a set up that will leave others completely jealous. Regardless of whether you see a horse at all, rest assured a day at the races is a great fun way to celebrate with your friends.


Some of the staff at One Day actually enlightened us to this incredible idea. Bey Dance is a dance community dedicated to releasing the disco diva within, onto the dance floor, full of flawless fabulousness, just like our hero, Queen Bey. Fun, tongue in cheek, inclusive and divalicious, we are all about taking your secret passion for dancing in your bedroom, hair brush for a mic, sassy ring finger flourishing to within an inch of its life, and putting you in a room full of like-minded Bey devotees.

Get the girls together and dance away to your favourite Beyoncé tunes.


If all you are after is a chance to catch up with the girls you don’t see enough of, drink some bubbles and eat some delicious food then a long lunch at one of Melbourne’s best restaurants or wineries is a perfect idea.

The Mornington Peninsular or Yarra Valley boast some of the best wineries in Victoria and are the perfect setting for a long boozy lunch. Hire a driver for the day and enjoy hanging out with your girls. We love Montalto and Port Philip Estate on the Mornington Peninsular and Yering Station in the Yarra Valley is beautiful also.

If you are looking for an inner city experience, Circa The Deck is a beautiful venue on St.Kilda beach. Otherwise Cookie or Cutler and Co call for a classy affair with some seriously delicious food.


The glamping revolution is here and this is the type of camping I could get used to. Within Melbourne, St. Jerome’s Hotel offers an inner city camping experience that is every bit luxe. Put your special girls up in one of these decked out teepees and enjoy a night of some serious pampering.

It’s time to get silly.
