Foodie Dad

Does Dad love to cook up a storm in the kitchen? Or does he prefer being waited upon at hatted restaurants? Maybe he’s more of a pub grub kind of guy? We have something that is guaranteed to delight his taste buds.  From hands-on cooking classes to a six-course seafood degustation, you’ll find plenty of inspiration in our gourmet gifts range.

Outdoorsy Dad

Some dads love the great outdoors and spend their weekend hiking, cycling or surfing. We have loads of tours and day trips that the outdoorsy dads will enjoy. From canyoning and abseiling adventures to golf lessons or whale watching cruises. If your Dad loves recharging by getting in touch with nature, start browsing our range of outdoor activities. Our hot tip? Choose an adventure you can share together!

Thrill-seeking Dad

For the thrill-seekers, skydiving is usually at the top of their bucket list. Why not go in with the siblings and shout Dad an experience he certainly won’t forget in a hurry. Let’s face it, skydiving is a whole lot more exciting than another pair of socks! If you’re looking for something slightly tamer, there’s always the Harbour Bridge Climb, a Jet Boat ride or Top Gun flight.

Stressed Dad

Father’s Day gifts can be a great excuse to gift dads the R&R they deserve. If your Dad has been putting long hours in at the office or just has a lot on his plate at the moment, gift him the chance to unwind. A massage or pamper package is always a great option. If he’s not the massage type, something simple like a nice dinner out is a great way for him to enjoy a night off cooking duty and just relax.

Getaway Dad

When was the last time your Dad had a holiday? We’re not suggesting you should shout him an overseas trip, but a mini-break doesn’t have to break the bank. We have a range of getaway options under $300 – and some great family options as well so you can all enjoy a getaway together.

Speed Racer Dad

We’ve all pretend to be a race car driver… Why not make that dream come true for Dad this Father’s Day with a V8 supercar experience? He could be behind the wheel or enjoy a hot lap with a professional driver showing him how it’s done. If he’d prefer heading off-road, there’s rally car racing and even V8 buggy experiences. If he’s the type that just wants a really nice car to cruise the streets in, he can always hire a Ferrari
