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 winemaking 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 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.
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.
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!
