Congratulations Prince Harry on your engagement to Meghan Markle!
From a heli pub crawl in the Northern Territory to jet-packing, James Bond-style, on the Gold Coast, here are some suggestions for the ultimate stag celebration in Australia.
Experience nature’s ultimate adrenaline rush
Get ready for the thrill of flying through the trees as you experience Australia's largest guided zipline tour at Tree Top Adventure Theme Park. Located on the Gold Coast, the Canyon Flyer guided zipline tour is not only the largest of its kind in Australia, it’s also the highest and fastest. Consisting of seven huge zip lines spanning 1.4 kilometres (just under a mile), the course crosses Cedar Creek Gorge multiple times before dropping into the gorge and flying just above the tree top canopy below. You will experience the unbelievable thrill of being more than 60 metres (197 feet) high and attaining speeds as fast as 70 kilometres (43 miles) per hour.
Take in the sights from a high-speed jet boat
Speed your way through the waters of the Gold Coast Broadwater and Moreton Bay Marine Park with Paradise Jet Boating. These rides are famous for their unique combination of jet boat thrills and excitement mixed with stunning scenery and sightseeing. Experience full 360-degree spins, high speed drifting and other exciting manoeuvres.
Get behind the wheel of a Supercar
The Supercars Official Driving Experience, Drive Ride Race, on the Gold Coast puts you behind the wheel of a car prepared by actual supercar engineers and mechanics. Drive yourself, ride with one of their supercars race winners or race your mates.
Scale the heights of adventure
If you are looking to scale the heights of adventure, look no further than Gold Coast Watersports Parasailing. You’ll have unobstructed views of the Surfers Paradise skyline and out to the mountains of the gorgeous Gold Coast hinterland.
Soar high above Surfers Paradise
Glide along the beach passing Burleigh Heads, the iconic Q1 high-rise and the Surfers Paradise skyline with Aussie Air Scenic and Charter. From this vantage point you’ll be able to spot the prestigious Versace Hotel, SeaWorld and Marina Mirage before viewing the Gold Coast’s famous canals and waterways.
Take a drive on the wild side
Embrace your wild side by taking on more than 50 hardcore obstacles in a self-drive army spec buggy with Wet'n'Wild Buggy. It is the newest and coolest purpose-built adventure track at Wet'n'Wild, one of the Gold Coast’s iconic big four theme parks. Get ready for a 1.2 kilometre (3/4 mile) long track riddled with rocks, water obstacles, crazy tunnels, hills, jumps and more.
Go jet-packing, James Bond-style
Inspired by James Bond, the jetpack is a water-propelled thrill that will send you 20 metres (66 feet) into the air, soaring over the water on the Gold Coast’s beautiful beaches. Fly over the water, somersault and make a splash with Jet Pack Adventures.
Watch the sun rise from a hot air balloon
It might be an early morning, but the reward is worth the effort. Jump on board with Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast and catch the sunrise over the rolling hills of the Gold Coast hinterland. Your expert pilot will take you into the air for sweeping views of Tamborine Mountain, Lamington National Park and to the east see the shimmering tall towers of the Gold Coast skyline.
Bag a barra in the Top End
Welcome to the Northern Territory – barramundi heaven. Darwin Barra Fishing Tours will show you the wildest, most scenic, remote fishing spots around Darwin and the NT. Choose your own adventure – from the picturesque wetlands of Kakadu to the abundant and varied fish-filled waters of Bynoe Harbour to the croc-infested muddy banks of the Mary River, or to the remote, untamed estuaries of Arnhem Land, there are a number of incredible spots across the NT to bag your barra.
Jump aboard an airboat

Along the way you’ll meet the publicans and the characters that define them and enjoy a beer or burger all while taking in some of the Top End's iconic establishments. Then, jump into your luxury chopper for a birds-eye view of stunning wetlands and beautiful coastline.
Swim with the whale sharks
Dive into the stunning waters of Ningaloo Reef for a snorkelling adventure unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Three Islands Whale Shark Dive will take you out to spend the day swimming alongside the giant, harmless creatures. Along the way you’re also likely to spot turtles, manta rays and scores of colourful tropical fish.
