Dads aren’t often easy to buy for. They aren’t always the best communicators either, and while some Dads might drop the occasional hint, getting any clues out of others can be like pulling teeth. The other problem can be that your Dad has already bought himself everything he could possibly want or need! If your Dad falls into the ‘difficult to buy for’ category, don’t panic. We’ve pulled together a list of unique Father’s Day gift ideas that keep on giving. Connect, enrich and support local this Father’s Day with Australian experiences.
Chances are you probably can’t afford to buy Dad a brand-new Ferrari for Father’s Day, but you can gift him a joyride on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. Dad will also get the chance for a photoshoot with the car. We have a feeling this shot will be going straight to the pool room.
Another great idea for Dads who love animals is the Roar ‘n’ Snore experience at Melbourne Zoo. Dad will experience behind-the-scenes access to Melbourne Zoo after dark while camping out at the historical Elephant Exhibit.
Even if Dad already dabbles in homebrew, it may not be drinkable… Gift Dad the chance to become a master brewer under the guidance of experienced experts and he might start enjoying his own batches at home.
On this behind-the-scenes tour of the SCG Dad will be able to get up close to iconic sports memorabilia like Don Bradman’s 1948 baggy green cap and Steve Waugh’s lucky red hanky! This is an unforgettable experience for all sports lovers, but especially cricket fans.
If Dad loves getting out and about in nature, diving with whale sharks is one experience he’ll be dying to tick off his bucket list. He’ll experience the ultimate thrill swimming alongside these majestic creatures. It’s like being inside a David Attenborough documentary!
If getting to Ningaloo Reef to swim with whale sharks is out of the question, Dad can jump inside the tank in the aquarium. Imagine the rush of coming face-to-face with a shark?! This is an experience Dad won’t forget in a hurry.
Looking for something really different to treat Dad with this Father’s Day? Give him the chance to soar above the water on a jetpack or flyboard experience. He’ll channel his inner superhero and fly up to 10 metres in the air.
