Spoil Dad this Father’s Day

With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to spoil Dad this Sunday 3 September! We’ve created a short list featuring the best of this weekend’s local activities and some truly unique experiences to really show Dad how much he means to you.

The Helicopter Schooner Dash

Spoil Dad with a return helicopter flight for two people that soars over the Brisbane river, while stopping in at a nearby country pub for a beer or two. Bonus? The flight can be redeemed at any time – keeping Sunday special just for you and him.

Where: Kholo, Brisbane

When: Anytime


Jetpack Adventures

If love could be measured by distance, you best be having Dad launched metres high above the water in the world’s first water powered device, also known as the JETPACK. Forget the socks and undies – instead give Dad the ultimate “out of the box” experience. 30-minute session includes equipment hire and in-water training for $99.

Where: Southport Yacht Club, Gold Coast

When: Anytime


Treat Dad to the Buffalo Bar

They’ve got all Dad’s favourite meals on this weekend – including hot wings, hand-crafted burgers, and smoked delights, plus one monster of a whiskey selection. Book a table for this Sunday 3 September for the family and the Buffalo Bar will shout Dad a complimentary Kirin and glass to take home. Get in quick!

Where: Cnr of Edward and Mary Street, Brisbane CBD

When: Sunday September 3


Father’s Day at Canungra Valley Vineyards

This year O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards has done the hard work for you – and all that’s required is to choose between the following two options to really treat Dad this Father’s Day. You can either kick back and enjoy a more leisurely experience by feasting on an Aussie style BBQ, or indulge at the Vineyard’s Vintage Restaurant overlooking acres of grape vines. Bookings must be made in advance – don’t miss out!

Where: Canungra Valley Vineyards, Canungra

When: Sunday 3 September, 10:00am – 4:00pm


Father’s Day Roast Lunch

The O’Reilly family invite all to their historic guesthouse for a traditional Sunday roast this Father’s Day – where all dad’s will be treated with a beer from the local Burleigh Brewing Co. The best part? Walk it off afterwards while enjoying the scenery in the retreat’s heritage-listed rainforest. Perfect for families!

Where: O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat, Canungra

When: Sunday 3 September, 12:00 – 2:00pm


Father’s Day Breakfast/Lunch Cruise on Brisbane River

This Sunday Kookaburra Cruises host their annual Father’s Day Breakfast/Lunch experience along Brisbane River, showing off the best views of South Bank, Kangaroo Point and the iconic Story Bridge. Either start your morning with a breakfast buffet on board, or head on down to Eagle Street Pier later in the day and enjoy a dining experience with live jazz and a complimentary beer on Dad’s arrival.

Where: Eagle Street Pier, Brisbane CBD

When: Sunday 3 September

Breakfast Cruise: 8:30 – 10:30am (2 hours duration)

Dad’s Free Barber and Bar

What more could a dad want other than a free haircut and complimentary whiskey/craft beers and nibbles? All Dads (and non-dads) are welcome – and no bookings are required. As it’s hosted at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, it’s the perfect moment to let Dad have some time to unwind, and then be spoiled with a trip to the shops afterwards!
