The warmer months are coming to a close, and it won’t be long before we wish it was summertime again. This month, we’re calling on you to enjoy a moment of #BackyardBliss and make the most of the nights and weekends at home.

After all, it’s the special moments spent together that bring smiles for miles and make lasting memories. And what better place than your backyard?

Perhaps it’s time to throw a get together and send off summer in style, with an unforgettable afternoon or evening of outdoor fun.

An Aussie garden party wouldn’t be complete without some time allocated to competitive sports. If you’re new to lawn games and looking for some inspiration, we’ve got just the guide for you.

Think bean bag toss, croquet, wooden dominoes ⁠– it’s all fun and lawn games with our ultimate how-to. Just don’t forget that having a variety of games is key, so that all guests can join in no matter their age.

Limber up and get ready…

Wooden Stack N Fall

This suspenseful stacking game builds a towering ‘garden skyscraper’ that can reach up to 1.5 metres high. To play, break your guests up into teams and see how far each group can get before the tower takes a tumble.

Product suggestion: Big W, Wooden Stack N Fall

Giant Dominoes

A timeless game that’s simple and perfect for the entire family. Giant dominoes is less physical than others, meaning it’s an excellent choice for mixed abilities.

Bean Bag Toss

This popular version of corn toss swaps hoops for bean bags, making it all the more fun for an outdoor gathering. Watch your guests try to land their bean bags through the hole in a platform board – it’s a laugh a minute!

Product suggestion: Kmart, Bean Bag Toss Game

Outdoor Twister

Outdoor Twister is the perfect ice breaker for intimate get-togethers with a small number of guests. Easy to set up, this game brings lots of excitement as your guests get themselves into a tangled twist.


Croquet is a classic lawn game option ideal for smaller groups, as it can be played by up to six players at one time. The objective of the game is to hit you ball through the course of six hoops in the right sequence in each direction and finish by hitting them against the centre peg. It can be a relaxing game, or competitive, meaning it is a perfect option for all kinds of guests!

Catch the Water Balloon

Last but not least, this one is a crowd favourite, especially among the kids! Fill up plenty of balloons with water and split your guests into teams of two. Then, see who can pass the water balloon back and forth over the longest distance, before dropping it. Last one standing with a full balloon wins.

Product suggestion: Rebel Sport, Zuru Bunch O Balloons

Don’t forget, a variety of games is key, so make sure you have a range suitable for all ages and capabilities. That way, no one is left out and every guest can enjoy themselves.
