5 Girls Day Ideas to Celebrate Being Besties

Your girls are the ones that are there for you no matter what life throws at you. Whether you see each other on the regular, or you can only catch up every month or two, girl’s days are such an essential part of life! Your girls’ days don’t have to be expensive, but if you can splurge a little that’s great! Check out some of our ideas below to have the perfect day with your besties. 


Make your own cocktail party

Girls night with a twist! Get your pals to bring a bottle of their choice, pick three or four cocktail recipes and set up a bar station and off you go! The best part is, you can do this all in your pyjamas if you really want to! Bonus points for a classic playlist… 


Rent a Go Boat

Have a picnic out on the water and take in the views of Canberra, with total free reign of which path around the lake to take. Bring your own food and drinks, or purchase the catered food Go Boat has available and set sail with your pals for an afternoon of fun!


Take a road trip

There’re so many beautiful places within an hour or two driving distance from Canberra, so why not load up a spotify playlist (or get old school and make a mix CD), get exploring and get each other some new insta content? Who knows, you might end up finding your new favourite hang out on the way!


Have a spa day

Do it yourself at home, or hit up one of Canberra’s many beauty salons and have a spa day together! Get a mani and pedi, treat yourself to a facial and hair mask, and just chill out together, spending the day recharging and refreshing yourself from the many stresses of life. Hale has a steam room, plunge pool and tea by their fireplace as part of all their massage packages – heaven!


Check out a winery

We’re so lucky to have so many beautiful wineries close to us in Canberra. With some right in our backyard and some only a short drive outside the border, grab your pals, find a deso driver (or really go all out and hire a bus!) and spend the day taking winery tours. Check out our article on 5 of the Best Wineries in and Around Canberra for some inspo!
