Fine Dining

Whether you’re planning a sleepover with your girlfriends or an elegant cocktail party, your bachelorette celebrations should include delicious, high-quality catering. Hiring a professional catering company for your big bash is a great way to instantly reduce the stress of party planning, and it means that you can sit back while the snacks come to you.

“One of the best things about having catering at a private party is the flexibility,” says Georgina Oakman, the sales and events manager at Perth Platter Company. “You can schedule your own start and finish times, and therefore can create a menu that is not bound by a kitchen’s time constraints.”

Perth Platter Company offers a delectable range of culinary delights, from antipasto platters to locally sourced oysters, which are served on a decadent buffet station. With 33 years of experience in the catering business, Perth Platter Company is the ideal choice for your hens celebrations.

Offering a range of delicious and affordable menus to suit all budgets – as well as the added convenience of equipment hire – Perth Platter Company delivers the finest food with no fuss. Whether you want hot food, cold food, tapas or desserts, Perth Platter Company can provide yummy delicacies to ensure your final outing as a single girl is a raging success.

Aquatic Adventure

If you love the outdoors and want to do something a little different for your bachelorette party, then an exhilarating day out on the water is a must- do. Dunsborough Jet Ski Tours is one the most popular attractions in the Margaret River region, and its tours provide the perfect combination of physical exercise and fun!

Your jet ski tour departs from the Quindalup boat ramp and takes in the spectacular bays and beaches of Meelup Regional Park, before heading to the lighthouse at Cape Naturaliste and making a final stop at Quarry Bay. You can pit stop at various points of interest along the way to view the marine flora and fauna, and you may even spot dolphins, fur seals and whales during your aquatic adventure.

Dunsborough Jet Ski Tours offers an unexpected alternative to your run-of-the-mill bachelorette party. A fun day out on the water is a great way to spend quality time with your squad, and it will be a thrilling event that you’ll be unlikely to forget.

It’s easy to get caught up in what a bachelorette party is supposed to be, but your last hurrah should be one that you and your closet friends enjoy. There have never been more choices for a soon-to-be-married girl who’s looking to kick up her heels one last time, and whether you opt for a night out on the town with your leading ladies or an adventure-packed jet ski tour, the most important thing is that you have fun and make wonderful memories!
