Father’s Day is next Sunday and if you’re anything like us, you’ve completely forgotten about it, until right now! Luckily, dads are way easier to please than Mums, because the way to a bloke's heart is generally through his stomach. So, all you need to do is take him out for a good feed and a few frosty ones, and he’ll be happy.
Here’s where to spoil your dad this Father’s Day on the Sunshine Coast, no matter what kind of dad he is.
Treat Dad To An Espresso Fundamentals Class
If you want something a bit different for your dad this Father’s Day, the peeps at The Coffee Training Company are offering $40 in savings when you bring your dad along to their Espresso Fundamentals class. Learn how to make killer espresso while also taking home your very own 250g bag of Premium First Batch Coffee. Sounds like a win-win to us.
Give Your Dad A Father’s Day ExBEERience
Buying your dad a six pack of beer is a safe bet, but why not take that sentiment and turn it into a full ‘exbeerience’? Creative Tours and Events offer Brewery Tours of the Sunshine Coast, taking you behind the scenes to meet the makers and sample locally brewed craft beer. Tours are followed by a lunch at Brouhaha Brewery in Maleny, making it the perfect day out. And if beer isn’t your dad’s thing, head to the newly opened CAVU Distilling next door to the Big Pineapple that offers Sunshine & Sons gin and vodka.
Tuck Into Juicy Barbecue The Sunshine Coast BBQ Festival
Grab your dad a ticket to this weekend’s Sunshine Coast BBQ Festival, which will allow him to indulge in a range of authentic and delicious BBQ dishes from all over. Think baby-back ribs,12-hour wood-smoked pulled pork, Texas style brisket, burgers, flamed-grilled pork belly and loads more. Guaranteed brownie points.
Grab Burgers And Whisky at Rick’s Garage
Burgers and dads go together like the sand and the sea, that’s why heading to Rick’s in Palmwoods is one of the best ways to spoil dad this Father’s Day on the Sunshine Coast. Order him the monstrous Big One, or keep it budget-friendly and go to the Works Burger and schooner of light beer. Then tow him upstairs to the whisky bar to down a few nicely aged drops.

The peeps at Land & Sea Brewery teamed up with Good Wax And High Noon Zinc to offer all the surf-loving dads the ultimate Father’s Day gift: a Surf Safari pack that includes 10 Land & Sea beers of your choice, four Good Surf Wax packs (two hard and two soft), and one tub of High Noon Zinc.
