Bachelor Week in Australia

So your best friend finally gave you the go-ahead to start planning that week-long bachelor party you’ve been mulling over, for the past month. In a moment of clarity, you remember your first and only road trip a good decade ago, when gastritis forced both of you to make a series of emergency stops beginning with Betoota.

One of the most famous features of the casino is its Atrium which is decked out with one of the most spectacular water, light and sound shows you will come across.

This is a huge casino, entertainment and hotel complex which includes many bars, restaurants and night clubs. It cost over a billion Australian dollars to build and certainly has the style to prove it. There are nearly 500 hotel rooms and suites in its three hotels and there is a theatre which will seat an audience of over 2,000.

Like that first road trip, your bachelor party is guaranteed to be a blast – but the good kind.
