Gus Worland's Father's Day wish list

by Elisa Parry

Stuck looking for the perfect gift for Dad? Triple M’s Gus Worland has got your back. Dads can be notoriously hard to buy for. We’re not sure why they assume we are mind readers when it comes to knowing exactly what they want for Father’s Day – but for some reason they do. To make finding the perfect gift a little easier, we asked Gus to pull together a wishlist of 10 RedBalloon experiences. If you’re stuck for ideas for your own dad, hopefully, this list can give you a few ideas…

The story of whisky: origins and flavours

A whisky tasting class is the perfect gift for novices and experienced whisky drinkers alike. Throughout this experience, Dad will get to taste eight different whiskies while hearing some of the fascinating stories behind their creation. Don’t mind a dram of fire water yourself? Why not go along with Dad and share this experience together.

Become a master brewer

Most dads have attempted to make their own homebrew over the years, and let’s just say they don’t always nail it. With this experience, they really can’t go wrong! They’ll learn the tricks of the trade at a real micro-brewery in Melbourne. This gift is perfect for the hipster dad.

Brew your own cider

If your dad is already a pro at brewing his own beer, why not expand his talents and gift him the experience to brew his own cider? He will be able to choose from a selection of recipes and learn the art of brewing from the experts.

Hypecar experience

Boys and their toys, hey? According to Gus, a passenger ride in one of Australia’s only hypecars would make a pretty great Father’s Day gift. Dad can choose from the Quantum GP700 or Ariel Atom 600 and enjoy insane speeds!
