Material gifts may be fun to unwrap, but studies show you may feel like your money is better spent on adventures. This Father’s Day pick a mountain to climb, a class to attend or plan a fun day out, and make memories that you and your Dad will never forget. Here are a few Aussie adventures we suggest planning for your dad…
Hang ten in the air in Byron Bay, New South Wales
Gift dad a hang-gliding experience he will never forget. Byron Bay draws in visitors from near and far and makes for the perfect opportunity to give dad the ‘surfing’ experience in the air. We all know dads can be a little dorky, so kit yours out with a neck wallet to keep his things in safe order.
Race dad to the top of Lamington National Park, Queensland
Lace up your hiking boots and experience exactly what Lamington National Park has to offer. With over 160 kilometres of walking tracks, getting out and becoming one with nature should be at the top of your list. Gift Dad with a hydration pack as he hikes among cascading waterfalls, abundant flora and spectacular views as far as the eye can see.
Go outback at Arthur Pieman Conservation, Tasmania
Go back to basics this Father’s Day and relive some fond childhood memories at one of the many campgrounds beside Arthur River. Spend the weekend 4WDing, fishing and waking up to the sweet sounds of nature. What’s more to love?
Road trip the Great Ocean Road, Victoria
Love museums but your dad doesn’t? Meet him in the middle with a road trip along the 12 Apostles, Otway Ranges and the fringing sea making up the Great Ocean Road. Pack your 4WD with the essentials and hit the road.
Hit the cliffs of Mount Arapiles, Victoria
Maybe don’t tell mum about this one… Climbing enthusiasts look no further as Victoria’s Mount Arapiles will excite even the most experienced climbers. With over 2,000 climbs to choose from and ranked as one of Australia’s top climbing destinations, there is no shortage of adventure to be had.
