You’re probably wondering what to do or what to get Dad for Father’s Day on September 6. Instead of buying the usual socks and shirts, or making a last minute dash to the hardware store, why not treat Dad to a great Sydney experience? Here are a few of our favourite Father’s Day gift ideas.
Climb the Harbour Bridge
Treat Dad to a view like no other with a climb to the top of the iconic Harbour Bridge. We guarantee he’ll love the climb itself as much as the panoramic views of Sydney Harbour once he has reached the summit (134 metres above sea level). Join Dad on the climb and have your picture taken on the summit, providing a nice memento to remind you both of the perfect Father’s Day in Sydney. Click here to learn more.
Breakfast by the Beach
Have you often woken up to the smell of Dad cooking bacon and eggs for breakfast? If this has happened more times than you can count, then Dad is probably well overdue for a weekend off. Why not treat Dad to a delicious fry up right on the edge of iconic Bondi Beach? With numerous cafés and restaurants opposite the beach you’ll be spoilt for choice no matter what Dad’s taste is. After breakfast, spend the day exploring the stunning coastal walks, soaking up the spring sunshine, or taking Dad for a surf lesson. There’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained.
Need for Speed
Satisfy Dad’s need for speed with a trip to one of Sydney’s many indoor or outdoor racing and go kart tracks. The family can watch and cheer Dad on from the side of the track, or challenge him to a friendly race. For something extra special, Dad can get behind the wheel of a V8 Race Car at Eastern Creek and race around the famous track. Click here to learn more.
For the Sports Fanatics
Is Dad an AFL or NRL fan? There’s plenty of action happening over the Father’s Day weekend with the Sydney Swans vs Gold Coast Suns at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and the Sydney Roosters taking on the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Allianz Stadium. The final round of the NRL wraps up over that same weekend as the St George Illawarra Dragons take on the West Tigers and the Canterbury Bulldogs face off against the New Zealand Warriors at ANZ Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
A Weekend in the City
Turn Father’s Day into Father’s Weekend and surprise Dad with a room overlooking the Sydney Harbour and CBD skyline. A staycation is the perfect way to spoil Dad without having to travel far. Stay close to the heart of the CBD and only a 10 minute train ride away from Bondi and the best of the Eastern Suburbs. With our Weekend Special package you’ll get great rates and buffet breakfast, which we know Dad will love. It’s a treat for you as well. Click here to learn more.
