Gold Coast – more specifically Surfers Paradise is party central.
Get yourself on a bar crawl here! Pay around $40 for a wristband that includes a drink/shot in each venue (around 4), free entry and you get instant friends!
It may be small, but Byron is the home of live music and good times!
Head to Beach Hotel on a Monday for reggae nights, grab a drink at The Railway or check out the line-up at The Northern! There are some UNREAL acts that perform here, we used to watch tones of music here.
If you fancy a big night, head to Woodies or for all things cheesy, then Cheeky Monkeys is for you.
In the big city, you are spoilt for choice! You can either head to Darling Harbour for happy hour or if you’re up for going clubbing, head to Home The Venue or Pontoon Bar.
There are also a tonne of backpacker bars around Kings Cross or head off on a pub crawls from your hostel.
Melbourne is a little more on the boujee side – with rooftop bars, secret bars and a load of fancy cocktail and themed bars (did we say ‘bar’ too many times – woops). Here are some of our fave spots: Madame Brussels, Croft Institute and Asian Beer Cafe (cheap pizza and jugs).
