Still need to get dad something special on Sunday 6 September? Then check out this great list of gift ideas for Father’s Day.
Stay and play package
For the month of September you can treat dad to a staycation at Quest Springfield.
Gift vouchers are available for this Spring deal which is valid for the entire month of September and includes one nights’ accommodation for two in a self-contained one bedroom apartment (a two bedroom upgrade is available at an added cost), a complementary welcome treat on arrival and a complimentary beer tasting paddle at Ballistic Springfield Brewery, Bar and Kitchen which is walking distance from the hotel.
Remind dad to pack his swimmers as the hotel is a stone’s throw away from the Orion lagoon, and runners as there are fantastic trails, sporting fields and parks to explore. Need more gear? Ask reception for sporting equipment to loan.
Floating high in the sky
Get up in the sky with a gift certificate for a Floating Images Hot Air Balloon Flight, this would be a great one to do as a family, get it off your bucket list and onto your to do list for Dad’s day.
Race around in a Mustang
Give dad a gift certificate for a V8 Race Experience in their new Mustang! The purpose built race car with a 500hp engine and supercar race suspension is brand new, and there’s nothing else like it in Australia.
