Father’s Day comes but once a year, and it’s a time to show your dad that even though he cracks terrible cheesy jokes and never let you get that Nintendo console you really wanted when you were a kid, you still love him anyway. Check out these fun suggestions for Father’s Day activities – perfect for dads of every kind.
You might think that hipsterdom is a modern phenomenon, but we’re here to tell you that even dads can be legit hipsters. If your old man has a sky-high stack of obscure records, loves a craft beer, or shapes and trims his long, luscious beard everyday, he’ll love these activities.
Father’s Day Package
Treat your dad to a spot of man-pampering with the Father’s Day package at Barber Boys, which includes a cut, traditional shave, and an optional hybrid blended colour. He’ll walk out feeling like a million bucks.
De-stress and Rejuvenate Dad
Every good hipster dad understands the inextricable connection between body and mind. Give yours the ultimate well-being experience with a spa package including a hot stone back, neck and shoulder massage, nourishing foot and back scrub, and facial.
Guided Beer Tasting & Brewery Tour
This one’s for the pops that love hops. The Prancing Pony tour includes a tasting of all of the brewery’s six beers, as well as a walk-through of the brewing process, from mashing and fermentation right through to bottling and labelling.
Does your dad love tucking into good grub? Whether he’s all about fancy feasts or just the weekly special at the pub, these tasty ideas should do the trick.
Father’s Day High Tea
Give your dad a taste of the finer things in life with a high tea featuring gourmet pies, sandwiches, and other man-approved foods as well as a fine selection of beers (and tea, of course).
Father’s Day Lunch & Signature Flight
Bird in Hand
If your dad appreciates a good drop and great food, it doesn’t get much better than Father’s Day lunch at Bird in Hand. He’ll enjoy a share-style menu featuring seasonal, fresh produce, paired with complementary house-made wines.
Father’s Day Fine Dining
Does your dad love food AND sport? Well, Hill of Grace sure can deliver. Treat your dad to a decadent dining experience showcasing the best local produce and flavours – all while overlooking the historic turf of Adelaide Oval.
If your dad doesn’t know the meaning of “rest”, “relaxation”, or “a day off”, it’s time to teach him how to take a break with these fun activities.
Luxury Hotel Stay
Spoil your dad (and mum) with a luxurious hotel stay at the Mayfair. The package include one night’s accommodation in a deluxe king room, two complimentary drinks at the rooftop bar, and buffet breakfast for two.
Free Zoo Day
What better way to chill out and unwind than with a wholesome family day out at the zoo? Entry for dads is free this Father’s Day (score!), but you can also treat yours to a gourmet catered lunch at $65 a head.
Go Kart Grand Prix
Gather up the family and friends to celebrate Father’s Day Grand Prix-style at Kart Mania. You’ll get the go kart track all to yourselves, and your dad can blow off steam while having a blast on the raceway.
If your dad loves anything involving cardio exercise, challenging outdoor sports, or action-packed activities, he’s bound to enjoy this lot.
“If you want to walk over the top of an Adelaide icon, see some great views of Adelaide and learn some interesting facts about Adelaide, its buildings and Adelaide Oval whilst also getting a bit of an adrenaline rush then this is for you. Great experience for both tourists and locals.” – 4chillis
Double Trouble Flyboarding
What, you’ve never flown through the air on a water jet-powered board attached to a jet ski? Well it’s high time you tried it, and bring Pops along with you. We guarantee you’ll both have the time of your lives.
SkyHigh Mega Adventure is described as “playing tennis in the sky and rowing a boat mid-air while manoeuvring between obstacles like a floating esky, BMX bike, and sky-high picnic table”. If that doesn’t get an adrenalin junkie dad’s heart racing, we don’t know what will.
