To help get your creative juices flowing, we’ve rounded up 10 epic experiences that are sure to get your husband’s tick of approval.
Is your husband a fishing fiend? Gift him a half day guided fishing charter off the Port Hacking River. If you’re lucky, he might even bring home some dinner!
The ultimate gift for a beer lover. He’ll roll up his sleeves and have a blast brewing his own beer, choosing from over 160 recipes dependant on his tastes. 2-3 weeks later, he’ll return to bottle up his liquid gold creation.
If your hubbie is a bit of a rev head, indulge him with an exhilarating V8 race car driving experience at Sandown Raceway. He’ll get suited up in a race suit and get behind the wheel for six blistering laps.
Whether his childhood dream was to become a pilot or he has a fascination of flying, this trial introductory flight over Brisbane will be an experience he’ll never forget.
Treat him to an 18-hole round of golf on one of Sydney’s finest golf courses. Go along for the game or send him off with a mate. A GPS equipped golf cart is also included.

Is your husband a repeat offender of burning meat? Or perhaps as fancy as he gets is steak and sausages? This American smoking BBQ cooking class will teach him new techniques as well as tips and tricks on temperature and timing. This is a gift that will also benefit you!
You can’t go wrong with a guided tour and tasting at the iconic Carlton Brewhouse, Australia’s largest brewery. The beer tasting session is of course complemented with some delicious pub grub!
Whisk him away for a two night seaside escape just metres from Surfers Paradise Beach. It’s the perfect base if you wish to explore the local attractions or if you wish to stay in and cocoon, you’ll love the complimentary sparkling wine and chocolates on arrival.
