Being a dad ain’t easy, so this Father’s Day, why not treat yours to an awesome experience to say thanks? Whether your pops is the sporty type, loves his food, or is well overdue for some R&R, we’ve got you covered – just check out these unique suggestions!
If your dad has ever said the phrases “beard oil”, “biodynamic produce” or “barrel-aged saison”, he’s a certifiable hipster.
The Old School Barber Special
Owner Brad has over 25 years’ experience in gentlemen’s hairstyles and traditional throat shaves, plus the shop is set up with a pool table, beer fridge, and pinball machine. Need we say more?
Father’s Day Package
If you’ve got a SNAD (Sensitive New Age Dad) on your hands, he’s sure to love an Indian head massage and men’s deep clean facial package from Stolen Moment Beauty. After all, his body is a temple and deserves to be treated like one.
Send your dad back to school (spirit school, that is), where he’ll learn all about the history of distilling, how Hippocampus spirits are made, and enjoy a sampling of gin and vodka to boot.
Whether your dad loves a schnitty at the local or fancy dining experiences, we’ve got you sorted.
Beef and Beer Masterclass
Beef and beer are pretty much top of the priority list for most foodie dads, so why not give your dad the gift of both with a masterclass at the Old Brewery? He’ll learn all about the beer brewing process, what makes a great cut of beef, and taste some goodies along the way.
Set Menu Lunch
On the set menu at Black Swan are offerings such as slow cooked duck leg, stuffed chicken rolled in prosciutto, pork belly roast, and banoffee crepes. Needless to say, your dad (and the rest of the family) will leave feeling wholly satisfied.
Ye olde British pub vibe awaits at Woodvale Tavern, and this Father’s Day, they’ll be serving up a carvery roast with all the trimmings alongside some chilled-out acoustic tunes. Cheers to that.
If your dad hasn’t had a day off in as long as you can remember, help him kick back, relax, and have some well-earned downtime with these activities.
Neil Diamond Orchestrated
Celebrating the 45th anniversary of legendary album Hot August Night, rock god Neil Diamond will be taking the stage at Crown Theatre, accompanied by the 30-piece Perth International Symphony Orchestra.
Treat your dad (and mum) to some well-earned R&R with a stay at beautiful Duxton Hotel overlooking the Swan River. The package includes a night’s accommodation in a deluxe room and full buffet breakfast in the Firewater Grille Restaurant.
Flotation therapy is all about turning off all outside distractions such as sight, sound, tactile sensations and even gravity, inducing a state of total calmness and relaxation. Give your dad the gift of ‘nothing’ with a 60-minute or 120-minute session (and make sure he knows that’s what he gets when he says he wants ‘nothing’ for Fathers’ Day).
If your dad looks like he’s ready to wrestle a bear (and win) at any given moment, try this lot on for size.
“It’s always great to release all of the stress on my weekly trips to Kart World. I’ve been coming regularly for a few months now and have managed to move up to the Senna karts. I’ve always found the staff to be very helpful and answer any questions I’ve had about the best way to get up speed in the karts and drive like a pro.” – dvkilaton
This high-flying obstacle course is perfect for adrenalin junkie dads. Watch him soar through the air on a flying fox and wobble his away across the sky-high suspension bridges… or join in on the fun yourself, if you dare.
Shark Cage Diving
Port Lincoln is the only place in Australia you can swim with great white sharks, so this is a pretty special experience for those thrill-seeking dads. Combo gift vouchers include a full day’s charter to Neptune Islands Marine Park and a cage dive with wild sharks as well as sea lions.
