Make Father’s Day One to Remember

Do something different this Father’s Day – spend the weekend on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast offers plenty of ways you can spoil your father this September, from unmissable Father’s Day events and family attractions to fun (and free!) things to do that he surely won’t forget for years to come.

Plan something special for Father’s Day 2021 – just choose from the list below!

Classic Car Show

Corvettes, Caddys, Chevvies and more, the Carrara Markets Classic Car Show is all set to round up the most nostalgic vintage cars in the region for a weekend car show that’s FREE to attend. It’s coming especially for Father’s Day, complete with rock ’n’ roll music and must-see memorabilia, on September 4 and September 5.

Crafted Festival

Does your dad like craft beer? Spoil him at this year’s Crafted Beer & Cider Festival, heading to Kurrawa Park Broadbeach with over 250 craft brews from Australia’s leading breweries. Beers, ciders, IPAs, ales, seltzers and more in addition to live music and entertainment – it’s got all the ingredients for a fun day out in the sun on September 11.

Dining in Main Beach

Father’s Day isn’t complete without a belt-loosening meal, and Main Beach Gold Coast is a dining hotspot that doesn’t disappoint when it comes to choice. Tedder Avenue offers a host of top-rated restaurants all in one location. There’s also Southport Yacht Club on the Broadwater waterfront, or Southport SLSC if you’re looking for a more casual experience on the beachside.

Jet-Ski Tours

What says a thrilling Father’s Day more than ripping through the waterways on a jet-ski? In Main Beach, jump on a jet-ski with Jet Ski Safaris or Gold Coast Watersports, which both offer an unforgettable jet-ski tour with no license required. If your father’s the outdoors type, he’s going to love this Father’s Day treat.

Fishing at The Spit Gold Coast

On the other hand, spending quality time fishing is a Father’s Day staple. The Gold Coast Sand Pumping Jetty at The Spit Gold Coast, located in Main Beach, is one of the Gold Coast’s top fishing spots, boasting breath-taking views down the coast, into the ocean and north to South Stradbroke Island. Sunbake, take in the view and reel in some quality bonding time.

Whale Watching

Did you know it’s whale watching season on the Gold Coast? Now until October, the migrating humpback whales can be seen just off the coast, and there isn’t a better way to treat your father this spring. Hop on a whale watching tour or simply head to one of the vantage points (The Spit, SkyPoint or Burleigh Head National Park) – just don’t forget your binoculars.

Kicking Back on the Beach

On a budget? No worries, you can’t go wrong by celebrating Father’s Day on the beach. Here at Pacific Views, Main Beach Gold Coast is a just short walk away from our family accommodation Gold Coast resort, where you can spend the weekend swimming, sunbathing and paddle boarding while taking in the coastal views all the way to Coolangatta.
