Set in the leafy surrounds of Turner and close the Canberra CBD, a bowling party is a great way kick back and relax while you’re waited on – the premium Bowls package will get you a Bowls Butler. Bowls packages are particularly popular for Christmas and festive season parties.

Twilight bowls: There’s no better way to celebrate the weekend than with a game of bowls as the sun sets. Bring the team after work for some social bowls, or meet your friends for a debrief on the week.
