From catching a movie at the mall to enjoying cocktails at a hipster bar, there are heaps of options for 21st birthday activities in Belconnen.

What can I do on my 21st birthday in Canberra?

Turning 21 is a momentous occasion that needs to be celebrated in style! Looking for something different from the norm? Here are some more unique 21st birthday party ideas that will have you turning heads and making memories in no time:

Throw a themed party

Sometimes, getting a little fancy with things is the best way to celebrate turning 21. Organise a champagne and caviar night to feel like you're in the lap of luxury whilst partying it up with all your friends! You can also book a private room at one of Canberra's most stylish restaurants for a themed meal (Old Hollywood, anyone?) with a few close mates or a hotel suite for a grown-up pyjama party.

Do a pub crawl

Get a group of friends to organise an awesome treasure hunt in your neighbourhood with clues that lead them to different pubs or clubs. You can also do a pub crawl around the city centre and have clues that lead to free shots at different pubs. Make sure you set up the bars beforehand and leave some clues at each location to keep your friends on their toes.

Get active

Do something physical. Gathering your best mates for a game of footy, volleyball, tennis or any sport is a great way to remember your 21st birthday. Or organise a scavenger hunt for the whole day (or night). This is a bit more adventurous but it's something you'll never forget.

Have a theme for your party and dress up accordingly

One way to make your 21st birthday party more unique is to have a theme. This will help set the tone for the event and get everyone in the mood to celebrate.

Make sure you have plenty of food and drink for your guests

No birthday party is complete without food and drink. Whether you're serving up canapes and champagne or a more informal buffet, make sure you have enough to feed your guests.

You should also consider hiring a bartender to make sure everyone can enjoy a few drinks without having to queue at the bar all night.

Have fun and enjoy your special day!

Remember, your 21st birthday is a once-in-a-lifetime event so make sure you enjoy it to the fullest. Dance the night away, relax with friends, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
