The ultimate guide for you to make a fuss of Dad this Father's Day.
Need some ideas to celebrate Dad and show him how much you care, even under stay at home orders?
Father's Day is celebrated to acknowledge the efforts of fathers and father figures and thank them for their contribution.
For something to do during or to look forward to post lockdown, gift Dad an experience from the many options available from Visit Penrith.
FREAK VR offer premium Virtual Reality experiences for hire and is a gift Dad can enjoy from the comfort of home. A complete VR package ‘in a box’ with everything he needs for premium quality virtual reality delivered straight to his door, how easy is that! For Dads who enjoy a physical challenge, gift vouchers for jet-packing, indoor skydiving, wakeboarding, go-karting and even axe-throwing are available to purchase online to use later. Surprise your Dad with a future dining experience while cruising the Nepean River on the Nepean Belle, an old-world style paddle wheeler, meet a lion or take a guided Harley tour with Wild Ride.
Does your Dad enjoy solving problems? Put his brain power to the test with a gift voucher to Narrow Escape Rooms. For the creative Dad, buy him future tickets to see a musical, dance or theatre performance at The Joan or even better a subscription to enjoy these all year round.
If Dad likes to keep things local, Penrith Proud has some fantastic Father’s Day ideas here. Many local operators and businesses are offering virtual events so if Dad is local to Penrith or not, there may be something he will enjoy while supporting local business. Options include paint and sip classes, theatre, online talks and workshops to name a few. Keep checking back as this list is updated regularly. Costs and dates vary, so check out each listing for more details. There’s even some free ones – we won't tell Dad if you don’t. ;-)
If food is the way to your Dad’s heart, a Father’s Day hamper, breakfast box, brunch pack or lunch or dinner special may be the way to go. Al Aseel,The Blind Chef Café, Percy Plunkett, Café at Lewers, Chechos, Cassandra’s on the Park to name a few, are offering great Father’s Day specials. Or check out the full list of Visit Penrith eateries that are offering delivery and takeaway to order Dad his favourite cuisine. It's a great excuse to use your Dine and Discover vouchers if you haven't already and a way for all the household to celebrate Dad together. Not in the same household? Then set up an online lunch date and get the extended family together (virtually).
However you celebrate Father’s Day, with a gift voucher, takeaway or unique experience to thank the Father figures in your family, or if it’s something else, we hope he has a great day.
