Five fabulous Father's Day ideas

Make Dad’s day with these activities that the whole family will love.

With Father’s Day just days away, we’ve compiled some of the best ideas to get Dad out and about with the family.

Putt putt at Victoria Park

Put Dad’s putting skills to the test at Victoria Park’s putt putt green. The challenging 18-hole course, includes sand and water traps, and swinging poles, with magnificent views of the Brisbane skyline.

Dads who are serious about their golf can also practise their swing at the driving range. 

Whale watching

Make the day one to remember with a whale-watching cruise. Departing from many places along the Queensland coast, cruises are the ideal way to get up close and personal with the majestic humpback whales as a family.

If Dad’s the adventurous type, he can even try swimming with whales at Mooloolaba. 

Craft beer and cuisine

If Dad knows his IPAs from his red ale, look no further than Tap’d at the Prince Alfred Hotel, Ipswich.

With more than 70 craft beers on tap, Tap’d boasts the largest selection in the southern hemisphere.

Tap’d has more than 20 TV screens and two projector screens that play 11 different sports so you can enjoy the game, regardless of your sport preference. 

Indoor skydiving

Sky diving is on the bucket list of many dads but if you’re concerned about safety or the cost of jumping from a plane, indoor skydiving could be a great alternative. iFly’s state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel simulates the sensation of skydiving in true freefall conditions.
