Skydiving for the ultimates hen’s experience

OK, this is a little adventurous but the rush of sky diving will create the best experience, and the best bond for the hens. Give your hen / bride to be a memory of a lifetime! You can choose a morning or arvo sky dive over the aquamarine shores of Shellharbour from just $399 for a tandem jump with Bigwave Skydive, just 10 mins south of Wollongong. A great option for small groups of adrenaline junkie ladies! This can also be an optional extra for the hens, a pre-party experience that gives the best natural highs.

Ladies who Lunch

Wollongong has some stunning, special restaurants that will make the hen feel super special. We recommend award winning chef’s hatted Restaurant Santino (Italian, chic, intimate, amazing service). For larger parties, Centro CBD offer fine dining, have a full restaurant, live music events and various function spaces if you want your own dedicated space. If you want a special lunch with stunning ocean views, Altitude 1148 is a winner. For locally produced food with a wonderful ambience and ocean views, Steamers Bar & Grill offer small – larger group bookings and will take exceptional care of your hen’s party. For stunning seafood and fine dining also with ocean views, The Lagoon is also a great option.
