Top ideas for a legendary father's day gift | father's day gift ideas

Father’s Day is here again! For many Dads, a pair of daggy dad socks or a voucher for Bunnings warehouse is on the cards. 

But when did buying someone a gift mean they should have to do more work around the house? Come on, does your Dad really need another drill, shovel or chainsaw? 

Give Dad something he’ll genuinely adore. 

And, no, that doesn’t include sitting at some upity restaurant waiting for a large plate with a smidgen of food to be served, bored out of his brain. 

Treat Dad to an experience he’ll never forget this Father’s Day. An experience that he’ll look back on in the years to come and think, “that was the best Father’s Day gift ever”!

Give the gift of an experience.

There’s no shortage of unforgettable experiences for Dads to enjoy in our region. Here are just a few:

The Ultimate Golf Experience

Let Dad channel his inner Cameron Smith and gift the ultimate Play & Stay package at Barwon Head’s world-renowned 13th Beach Golf Course, consistently ranked in the top 20 best courses in Australia. 

He’ll enjoy the experience of playing both championship courses while staying in one of their luxurious and spacious rooms with his own private patio area overlooking the stunning Beach Golf Course and Lake Murtnaghurt.

The Grand Sail, Dine & Stay Experience

Give Dad a break with a stress-free weekend escape to one of the Bellarine Peninsula’s most charming seaside towns. 

He’ll enjoy a ferry trip across Port Phillip Bay from the Docklands to Portarlington. After a short stroll up from the pier, he’ll be welcomed at the Portarlington Grand Hotel, where his room with stunning bay views from his private balcony will be waiting. 

A weekend of indulgence awaits with local wineries, provedores and cafes only stone’s throw away. Or he can opt for a classic pub meal in the newly renovated Bistro that has become the jewel of the Bellarine.

Book this unique package with the Portarlington Grand Hotel to show your Dad how much you care. Learn more here.

The Legendary Train Experience

You know what Dad needs? Dinner and a show on a steam train, memories that will last a lifetime, the perfect gift for Father’s Day!

A night on The Blues Train is an experience like no other. 

Whether your Dad’s into trains, generous servings of blues-inspired meals, tapping along with talented musicians, or just having a good old-fashioned boogey on the dance floor, The Blues Train has everything needed to create lasting memories. 

You can even print a Blues Train gift card at home as an ideal gift or even a last-minute gift!

So forget the Bunnings gift card this year and give him the gift of letting him pick a date for his ultimate night out. Purchasing and printing a Blues Train gift card from home or work is as simple as…

  1. Choosing the gift card’s value.
  2. Print off and give to Dad
  3. Let Dad pick what show he wants to go to!

Riding along on a 100-year-old steam train in beautiful heritage carriages eating, singing and dancing like he just doesn’t care.
