While we all know that Mother’s Day is the most important day of the year, Father’s Day is kind of important too. As the spring sunshine starts to emerge again, wouldn’t it be fun to get out and celebrate this special day as a family? If you’re looking for Father’s Day ideas with a difference, then Mums of the Shire have the very best ones for you.
Our Top Ten Cool Father’s Day Ideas in the Sutherland Shire (and beyond)
Cook at Kurnell
How about brunch at an uber-cute vintage airstream food truck, overlooking the gorgeous waters of Kurnell? Send Dad off for an early morning surf on his own and then meet him at this great little café for a hearty breakfast and some excellent coffee, while the kids play in the sand.
Sporties @ Kareela Golf
Start Dad’s day off right by giving him some time alone to play 18 holes at Kareela Golf, then meet up with him for dinner at the bar and grill afterwards. The locally showcased food and produce here is simply amazing, and Dad (and the kids) will be stoked by the new ‘Down by the River’ kids’ room.
Sky Zone Miranda
If the weather isn’t quite up to spring standards yet, how about a couple of hours of jumping fun at Sky Zone Miranda? Kids of all ages, including most importantly, Dads, love the fun and freedom of bouncing about on the trampolines here.
This is serious enjoyment for all the family and also a really good workout. See if Dad can keep up with the little ones. Plus it is guaranteed to tire the kids out for an early bedtime, leaving Mum and Dad with some quality Father’s Day Night time together!
If you haven’t seen TV sensation Bluey yet – where have you been hiding? We know quite a few parents guilty of watching this show or repeat even when no kids are in the room! One of the best things about Bluey is that it was created by a Dad, and shows one of the very best Dad and child relationships we’ve ever seen on TV. Bandit is true Dad goals.
Why not get your own Bandit a personalised cake made by one of the awesome cake makers in our local services directory?
Every Sutherland Shire Dad fancies himself a golfing star, even if his skills are mostly at mini-golf. Kids and Dads love a trip to the mini-golf course at Miranda, and may get extra competitive as well. This is a gorgeous indoor centre that is quite unlike any mini-golf course you’ve seen before – they have completely explored the far reaches of the imagination in designing this course!
No bookings are necessary, so this might be a great last-minute idea if you have left your planning till late.
Event Cinemas Gold Class
If Dad is a movie lover, why not treat him to a night out at the Gold Class cinemas at Event Cinemas Miranda? This luxurious experience offers a huge squishy reclining chair, plus wait service directly to your seat bringing drinks, nibbles, dessert and more. You might like to book a Gold Class trip for the whole family for Father’s Day, or perhaps buy Dad a voucher to use later on, on his own.
The Loft @ Tradies Caringbah
Dad will love dinner out at a great pub with a cool ambience, but what to do with the kids? Take them along of course – it’s about being together as a family (but still having a fun and stress-free time). Max’s World is a supervised kid’s club that runs during dinner at The Loft from Thursday to Sunday evenings and is perfect for Father’s Day dinner.
If you still aren’t sure what to get, we love this personalised idea. You can arrange to get a book of Where’s Daddy with your partner’s very own customised Lego adventure similar to Where’s Wally? He and the kids can spend hours reading the book and trying to find his Lego likeness, which you will have a ball personalising just for the man of the day.
This book can be ordered online and delivered anywhere in the Sutherland Shire.
Healthy Eating Plan
Like Mums, many Dads struggle with a few extra kilograms around their waist, as well as may develop some eating concerns with age. If Dad has been lacking in energy and he is finding that he can no longer eat everything his metabolism was used to, he might really like a one to one nutrition session to create a personal health and eating plan.
This is the perfect way for Dad to start focusing on himself and his own health journey, which often gets put behind his work and other adulting priorities. Contact one of our trusted Nutritionists to find out more information.
