So you’ve been given the job of organising an amazing Bucks party for the groom. Melbourne is the sporting capital of the world, so what better way to spend the early part of your day than partaking in sports that are a little out of the ordinary?


Melbourne has some great quality Go Karting available on all sides of the city. You can generally choose between sessions ranging from half an hour to two hours.

It can get pretty competitive, with lap times recorded to hundredths of a second and medals and trophies given out to the winners.

Most places offer packages that range from 8 to 30 drivers, so they’ve got all Bucks sized groups covered.


With indoor or outdoor and venues all across Melbourne, you won’t have trouble finding a place to play Paintball. It’s physical fun, so make sure you undertake it early in the day when everyone is fresh.

The great thing about paintball is that it can be taken as serious or as fun as you like and it works for small and large groups.

Be prepared to have a few welts the next day though!


Bubble Soccer is a laugh out loud way to get your day started. Everyone is strapped into a giant zorb suit and runs around madly trying to bump each other over and maybe score a goal or two along the way.

The action isn’t limited to soccer, with Bubble Bulldog, Bubble Sumo, Bubble Dodgeball and Bubble Pong being the other popular games.

Bubble Sportz travel all across Melbourne and Victoria, bringing the games to your local park, backyard, indoor gym or other suitable venue.


It’s not every day that you get to participate in an Olympic shooting sport. Clay Shooting venues across Melbourne have packages tailored to Bucks groups, with all your equipment provided, some tips from the experts, a warm-up and then a competition.


If spending a few hours or a whole day out on Port Phillip Bay with a line in the water sounds like your thing, then consider one of Melbourne’s many fishing experiences.

Packages are usually available that include all your gear, lunch and maybe even a few beverages.

Knowledgeable crew will take you to the best spots on the Bay and you might even catch yourself some dinner.


Barefoot lawn bowls has enjoyed growing popularity in recent years, both day and night. The greens are usually conveniently located next to a bar and bistro. Most clubs will have a food & drinks package option for Bucks groups.
