Top 5 things to do on Fathers Day - Melbourne - Aug 27, 2018

Embrace our amazing city by acting as a 'tourist' for a day. Spend some quality time with Dad visiting some of the well known attractions Melbourne has to offer. No-one has to know that you are a local, jump on the city circle tram and let the city take you away on an adventure through laneways and markets. 

Fathers Day is this Sunday- 2nd September. There is still time to plan something super special for him! 

Our top 5 for Melbourne include:


Get your runners on and work up a sweat, by participating in the YMCA Fathers Day Fun Run. With the option of a 5km or 10km walk or run, this will be a great way to boost energy levels and breathe in the fresh Spring air.

After all the years of parenting, the least you could do is shout your Dad a frothy on Fathers Day. 

Venture to Richmonds precinct (same area as our Headquarters) and pop into Mountain Goat Brewery for a beer and bite to eat. Open from 12-6pm on Sunday, with the option of a FREE BREWERY TOUR at 1.30pm.

There's a new place in town that everyone's talking about...Mjolner is a fine dining restaurant combining Scandinavian/ Viking design throughout their menu and interior decor. Escape the normal world for a few hours and be entertained by the surrounds of this interesting venue. It's not too late to book a table here OR purchase a gift voucher.

Open Sunday from 5pm-11pm.

If heights isn't his thing, send Dad on an underwater experience at Sealife Melbourne Aquarium. Dads receive FREE ENTRY during the weekend so you can even save a few dollars by taking him on the 1st or 2nd September. The aquariam also offer Shark Dive experiences for those who want a little extra adrenalin kick, from $199 per person.

Spoil Dad with a male version of High Tea at Stables of Como, South Yarra. 

Tea and cakes isn't just for ladies, there is a specialised menu though to cater to Dad's taste buds including Peroni, sliders, burgers and chunky chips... yummy! 

$70 - $75 per person with non-alcoholic option available.

Bookings still available for Sunday, get in quick!

However you choose to celebrate your Dad this Fathers Day, we hope it's a wonderful day spent together, creating lifelong memories and enjoying a laugh or two. 


Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads & Grand Dads of Melbourne!
