Great experiences to share with dad this Father's Day

Is your dad notoriously hard to buy for? This Father's Day avoid hours of walking aimlessly in and out of shops and leaving with nothing for an experience you can share together. This is exactly what these RedBalloon customers did and the outcome was a fun-filled day with their dads neither one will forget.

"A wonderful experience."

"Dads' top item on his bucket list was to fly in a helicopter, so for his 85th birthday we booked a flight. An easy booking process, friendly and casual staff and an informative and cheerful pilot all added to the experience. Dad absolutely loved flying over the wharf where he worked and out over the Fremantle coastline."

"This was a fantastic experience."

"The 4WD segways were heaps of fun! I bought this as a gift for my father and we both enjoyed it immensely, especially once we had all the basic manoeuvres mastered. The leader controlled the group well and made sure we got the most out of our time on these fantastic machines!"

"Ironman, eat your heart out!"

"The flyboard experience was the pick of the two options for us and having my sixteen-year-old son share it with me was a great father/son moment. The instructor said, "It's like nothing else you have tried." And I absolutely agree. I thoroughly recommend it."

"Parasailing = paraSMILING!"

"My boys and I bought my husband a parasail for Father's Day from RedBalloon and booked the experience for his birthday - it was fantastic! He had the best time and loved every minute of it! He has never been before and thought it was incredible! For me, the booking and organising was so easy, with the provider being very professional and friendly. Couldn't recommend it highly enough!

"Special time with my son."

"The RedBalloon voucher made the day effortless, and very special for my son. We had been here many times before but this time, having lunch provided, a tour, PLUS a memento (all included), made it extra special for us both. Well worth it."

>> The Workshops Rail museum tour, Ipswich, QLD

"Fantastic time."

"My father and I enjoyed a great journey on the segways! Clear and simple training instructions were provided initially then our fun and friendly tour guide took us on a picturesque glide across and around the beautiful Brisbane river. Our guide gave us the freedom to have fun on the segways in a safe and secure environment. I would recommend this as a gift or activity for anyone. A must do!"

"Good things are best shared."

"My youngest daughter arranged our kayaking/hot springs tour as a Father's Day gift. What a wonderful experience. We had done some kayaking before so we knew a little of what to expect, but never in a double kayak together. Learning to coordinate was the best part of the experience, and after clipping my daughter over the back of the head with my paddle a couple of times, we soon became a good team. The friendly staff had our gear ready for us when we arrived and were very laid back. After soaking in the hot springs and enjoying a sauna, we were more relaxed than we had been in a long time. Definitely an experience we will repeat.
