Girls weekend away

Take some time out for the hustle and bustle of everyday life and treat yourselves to a weekend away. We’re thinking somewhere sunny like Port Douglas – where you could add on a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Or somewhere super relaxing like the Blue Mountains, Yarra Valley or the Mornington Peninsula.

Learn how to fly

Can you see your mum in the pilot’s seat? If she loves to be in control, gift her a flying lesson. If you think she’d be a little too nervous to take to the skies, there’s always flying simulators which are a great place to test her skills. If she loves the experience, you can always upgrade to the real thing next year.

Learn to surf

Learning to surf is a bucket list item for most people. You could always book a cheeky getaway to Byron Bay and take a surfing lesson together at one of the most beautiful beaches in the country! If the waves prove too much, there is always stand up paddle boarding. You’ll be a bit shaky to start with – but with a little help from the experts, you’ll be a pro in no time!
