Top 6 unique Father’s Day experiences on the CoastPublished on 23 Aug 2019
Give your dad a Father’s Day to remember and take him on a little adventure to the beautiful Central Coast. Stay overnight and make a weekend of it or simply jump in the car for an exciting Sunday getaway. From a laid-back lunch overlooking the sparkling ocean to a thrill-seeking spin around the treetops, there’s something for whatever sort of dad you have.
Get the day off to a flying start with a buffet breakfast overlooking the ocean in the Lord Ashley Lounge in Terrigal’s Crowne Plaza. Sure, there’s bacon, eggs and sausages galore. But you’ll also find waffles, mushrooms, mouth-watering pastries, fluffy pancakes, freshly squeezed juice, barista coffee, and much, much more. Dad will love it.
Tickle Dad’s tastebuds with a feast of deliciously blokey food in the Crowne Plaza’s very special ‘Festival of Dad’ Father’s Day lunch. It’s a buffet lunch like you’ve never seen before – beer on arrival followed by Texan rubbed smoked brisket, southern fried chicken with waffles, smoked blue eye and potato cakes, beer can chicken, smokey pork ribs, sausage and shrimp jambalaya, plus delicious sides and desserts. And then maybe a lie down.
Get him into a great mood for Father’s Day - make him laugh out loud the night before. The Sydney Comedy Club returns to The Entertainment Grounds at Gosford for a huge night of comedy fun on Saturday, 31 August. Featuring the hilarious Brett Nichols, the award-winning Ciaran Lyons, and the internationally acclaimed Daniel Townes, it’s a night your dad (and you) will never forget. And not a bad early Father’s Day present.
OK, so dad likes a bit of excitement thrown in with his Father’s Day. Less sitting back and lunching, more getting out and doing. Fine! Get him up to the Fox Superflow at Ourimbah on Sunday, 1 September. It’s a mountain bike challenge for all age groups and abilities on some hidden gems of the Central Coast’s bike tracks and trails. Perfect for families, couples, groups of mates, and dads.
Dial up the culture in dad’s life with some world-class music in this one-off performance by some of Australia’s finest young musicians. ‘Songs of the North’ is a mesmerising program of classical music from the Northern Hemisphere performed by the Sydney Symphony Fellows. It’s on Wednesday, 4 September at The Art House, the Coast’s most exciting performing arts centre. Sounds like a good gift for Father’s Day.
Send him into the treetops for a high-flying, adrenalin charged Father’s Day experience the whole family can enjoy. Visit the TreeTop Adventure Park for all sorts of vertical climbs, high rope challenges, flying foxes, Tarzan swings, twisted ladders – even an extraordinary Crazy Rider that’s half zipline, half rollercoaster. Dad will love it. Well, he’ll certainly remember it!
