Hi hungry, I’m Dad – where to celebrate Father’s Day on the Gold Coast
The time is fast approaching to show your dad how much he means to you. If Father’s Day has slipped your mind completely, get some inspiration for where to take your dorky dad, proud pop or fantastic father.
Father’s Day BBQ & Craft Beer Festival at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort: Combining two of the best things in life (in our opinion, and probably your dad’s), InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort will be celebrating Father’s Day with an outdoor BBQ & Craft Beer Festival on the Marina Lawn. This family-friendly day will see children enjoy a jumping castle and face painting, while an acoustic musician will be on hand to serenade guests as they relax on picnic tables after perusing a smoked BBQ Roadshow pop-up, a Stone & Wood craft beer bar, dessert station and gourmet charcuterie board boxes.
Father’s Day Cruise with Sea World Cruises: Treat your dad to a cracking day out on the water aboard Sea World Cruises! With a range of top-notch cruises on offer, you can enjoy an amazing view of the Gold Coast waterways from a prime location on the newly refurbished boat. Whether you choose to book in for the day itself or go for a gift voucher, the hard work is done for you already.
Surf and Turf at Citrique: If daddy-o doesn’t mind a spot of seafood or a succulent steak, then we have just the lunch-time dining deal for you. The legends at Jw Marriott Gold Coast’s Citrique are serving up the ultimate buffet, featuring an array of decadent dishes including locally harvested seafood, woodfired pizza, artisan antipasto and succulent roasts. The drool-worthy buffet is $149 per person with a beverage package available, too! Head here to make your booking, as spots for this deal are limited.
Brewery Tours at Precinct Brewing: The much-loved Miami suds-slinger Precinct Brewing is serving up a little Father’s Day treat this year, with free brewery tours for dad and a plus one! Running from midday to 5:00 pm on Sunday September 5, dad will also be treated to a free beer. Bookings are essential as this offer is a popular one – for obvious reasons.
Father’s Day Feasts at The Star Gold Coast: For the ultimate Sunday feast, go for something on Garden Kitchen & Bar’s seasonal a la carte menu or go for the decadent lamb ribs, which you can indulge in for just $38.00. If you’d prefer to enjoy stunning views of the Gold Coast skyline as you dine, head to Nineteen at The Star and spoil dad with a delicious four-course menu for $120 per person. Or, if he’s got a penchant for pasta, head to Cucina Vivo for the ultimate Italian dinner. There’s something for everyone!
Father’s Day Family Feast at The Island Gold Coast: The Island Gold Coast has done the hard work for you and lined up a cracking spread of Father’s Day delights that will have dad sitting back with his belt-buckle back a notch, beer in hand and grin on his face. The Father’s Day Family Feast features a shared-style menu with a gourmet charcuterie board, meat board of roast pork belly, beef short ribs and slow-roasted lamb shoulder and accompanied by roast seasonal vegetables, mac and cheese, fresh slaw and chips. Dad also receives a cold glass of beer on arrival.
Father’s Day Flamenco at Bread and Butter: Take dad along for a fun evening of flamenco this Father’s Day! The event at Coolangatta’s much-loved Bread and Butter includes a flamenco show, authentic Spanish paella, wood-fired breads, foccacia and an array of Spanish pinchos. Plus, happy hour will be running from 4:00–6:00 pm, which includes beer and hand-crafted cocktails.
Father’s Day Buffet at Southport Sharks: Treat dad to the ultimate all-he-can-eat buffet at Southport Sharks this Father’s Day. All dads that dine will receive a choice of a complimentary glass of beer or soft drink to wash down their hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner. From 7:00 am, feast on a delicious all-you-can-eat breakfast, or if dad’s not the earliest riser, make sure he saves room for a lunch or dinner buffet fit for a king!
Father’s Day Dining at The Lucky Squire: Take dad out somewhere that the whole family will enjoy at the much-loved Broadbeach locale The Lucky Squire. He can choose from multiple options off our new menu, sip on his favourite James Squire (or choose a flight for a selection) and enjoy being surrounded by his loved ones – plus with every booking made for Father’s Day, dad will receive a four-pack of limited edition James Squire glassware to take home. Cheers!
