What to do on Father’s Day?
|The day that we celebrate the man of the house is approaching and we’re all now contemplating what to do to make his day. Sunday, 2nd September is Father’s Day and many Aussie families will be planning an outing in celebration of their old man.|
Whether it’s lunch at the local pub or a family game of golf, this Sunday make sure you spoil your dad. With the Herald Sun reporting that Aussie are planning to spend less than half as much as they did on Mother’s Day, I think it is time we step it up a notch and show our dad’s how much we appreciate them.
Instead of spending this Sunday at home, take your dad to the great Aussie male havens. We’ve worked hard to find you the top five places that your dad’s will melt over. Listen up and start planning.
For those Sporty dads you can’t go past Australia’s National Sport Museum located within Melbourne’s Cricket Ground. The museum is a monument to Australian sporting history, featuring sporting memorabilia such as Sir Donald’s cap which was worn in the 1948 tour of Britain, where his team earned the title “the Invincibles”.
Some countries have shrines in respect to their religious gods, in Australia we honour our sporting heroes and the National Sports Museum is our shrine to them.
For those Queensland bound families, you can’t miss the Bundaberg Rum Distillery located in Bundaberg QLD. Bundaberg Rum originated in 1989 and has become one of Australia most well-known and loved brands.
We suggest you take your dads on a guided tour through the distillery which truly brings to life the 120 years of rum crafting history. You’ll learn about the history, the fermentation process and weave your way through the bottling plants.
Take your dad on the ultimate experience of Sydney and book a Sydney Harbour Bridge climb. He’ll experience breathtaking views of the city as well as an adrenaline rush not to be forgotten. There are three levels:
- The Express Climb
- The Discovery Climb
- The Bridge Climb
Whatever your preference the climb is definitely worthwhile.
Pack up your tents and jump in the family 4WD and head north of Perth to Lancelin, WA. You’ll experience a jam-packed weekend filled with sand dune boards riding, motorbikes and 4WDs. Lancelin offers some of Australia most monstrous dunes.
For those fathers who are lovers of all things chocolate then Haigh’s Chocolate Visitor Centre is definitely worth checking out. Located in Adelaide, South Australia the Chocolate factor offers guests a 20 minute tour, free tastings, production viewing, free tea and coffee, and chocolate sales.
