5 Father’s Day Gifts to Impress Dad

5 Father's Day Gifts to Impress Dad
on 15 August 2021 in Events & Entertainment

When it comes to finding the right gift for dad, be it for his birthday or Father’s Day, the whole process can be quite challenging. Dads are often creatures of habit, which also means that they most likely have their favourite things sorted and already have a system set in stone.

Rather than falling back on the typical stuff like sports gear, another pair of socks or jocks, coming up with something creative and meaningful this Father’s Day can be tricky.

Not to worry though, we’ve got you covered with our 5 Father’s Day gifts that are unique with a good chance to impress Dad this year on his special day.

Have a hearty meal with Dad

There aren’t many things that bring family together as much as food does. So why not treat Dad to a hearty Father’s Day dining experience at the Grand View Hotel in Bowen?

Happening on 5 September 2021 from 11.30am to 9pm, surprise Dad with some quality time with his loved ones while tucking into a delicious hearty meal followed by a fresh glass of beer on tap to wash it all done. Combine this with great vibes, amazing waterfront views, and you have yourself a winner of a feast.

All of the favourite classic meals will be prepared by professional chefs that make the Grand View Hotel in Bowen renowned throughout the Whitsundays and Far North Queensland.

Don’t miss out on treating Dad this Father’s Day and make a booking by calling (07) 4786 4022 to book a table.

Get tickets for a Beer Appreciation Night

There’s a sweet romance with Dads and beers. So if there’s one way to show Dad some appreciation and recognition of his manliness and achievements, it’ll most definitely have to be something to do with beer.

Which is exactly why you should grab Dad and yourself tickets to the Ballistic Beer Appreciation Night happening at the Grand View Hotel in Bowen on 11 September 2021 from 5.30pm to 9pm. The night features Ballistic Brewing Co.‘s best of the best, and is perfect for anyone who has a passion for beer.

From the core range all the way to limited releases, the Ballistic Beer Co. team brew a fantastic range of craft beer guaranteed to excite beer aficionados and picky beer drinkers.

Tickets to the event are only $50 per person, and doors open from 5.30pm with tastings being poured at 6pm. As the event has limited availability, be sure to book a spot to avoid disappointment by calling the Grand View Hotel team on (07) 4786 4022.

Limited edition Father’s Day Australian whisky

There aren’t many opportunities to celebrate Dad and Australia at the same time as Father’s Day, which is why bringing in some good ole’ Aussie spirit to Father’s Day can be a real treat for him this year.

Bringing in the boldness of Ned Kelly, the NED Australian Whisky features a limited edition stash that has unmistakable character that Dad will appreciate. NED Whisky is a local Melbourne whisky distillery with a strong and loyal following for good reason.

The NED Whisky Father’s Day gift whisky will feature a uniquely hand calligraphed “Dad” on the front label, idolising the Man, the Myth, the Legend on his special day.

Do an online cooking class together

Test your cooking skills with Dad in the kitchen on Friday 3 September 2021 at 9am to 10am on Eventbrite and whip up some grilled chicken tacos. Hosted by Homemade Events, the virtual cooking class is free for all and you can register online here on Eventbrite.

Once registered, you will receive your link to the recipe page as well as your Zoom link to join in the class.

Take him out for a fish

When in Bowen, you simply cannot overlook going fishing with Dad on Father’s Day as an option. Fishing is one of the town’s biggest attractions, and with the countless creek systems, coral islands, and offshore reefs, there’s just so much marine life and fishes.

You’ll find awesome species including Bream, Coral Trout, Whiting, Mackerel and Barramundi this time of year. And some great places to fish up in North Bowen include Bob Moses, Boat and Meatwork Creeks, which are also accessible by sea at high tide from Don River Boat Ramp.

If you don’t have a boat, you can still fish with Dad from land by heading to the Bowen Jetty or the rocky outcrops of Horseshoe Bay, Grays Bay and Rose Bay.
