Think about all those items on your bucket list. Now think about how many of those experiences you would love to do with your mum by your side? Here are 10 experiences to do together. Celebrate Mother's Day by spoiling mum with an experience gift.
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.
Enjoy some wine time
Spend a day exploring your favourite wine region. From the Hunter Valley to the Barossa Valley, Yarra Valley or even Tasmania – we have a wide range of wine tours available all over the country. If you’re looking for something extra special, try the Penfolds wine making experience.
Go hot air ballooning
Yes, you’ll be up for a very early start to the day – but trust us, the view will be worth it. Hot air ballooning is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences and a beautiful moment to share with your mum.
Learn how to fly
Can you see your mum in the pilot’s seat? If you’re mum 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.
Jump out of a plane!
This experience might not be for everyone, but we think there’s more than a few adrenaline seeking mother and daughter duo’s out there who would love to go skydiving! If the thought of jumping out of a plane is too scary – there is always to option of indoor skydiving. Find out more about it here.
Take a cruise
Who doesn’t love being on the water? There are so many different types of cruises available from sightseeing cruises, to whale watching and even tall ship adventures. Spoil mum with a luxury yacht cruise and two-course dining experience or a high tea cruise on Sydney Harbour.
Indulge in a pamper package
How does a detoxing sauna, flotation tank and salt therapy package sound? What about a hot springs and breakfast experience for two? Treat yourself and your mum to the ultimate pampering session.
Go diving with sharks
If you’re both up for skydiving, chances are you’ll both be brave enough to dive with sharks! You’ve got the choice to dive in an aquarium environment or in the wild! Either way, this will be an experience you’ll never forget!
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!
Go on an adventure to New Zealand!
If you’ve never been to New Zealand, book a ticket for yourself and your mum and get ready for a girl’s getaway. Explore the sights of Auckland, visit Hobbiton or embrace your wild side with the adventure activities in Queenstown. Check out our New Zealand website.
