The time is here to celebrate all those fabulous daddies out there- whether it's a hubby who makes your life as a mum that much sweeter, your own father, a grandad or an uncle, spoil them this Father's Day Sunday 3 September 2017. 

Take advantage of the Spring sunshine and treat dad to a delicious meal or some family-friendly fun at one of our handpicked celebrations across Sydney:

1. Celebrate Father's Day at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel

Love dad? Love food? Love golf? Celebrate Father’s Day with a 3-course lunch overlooking Sydney Harbour with a golfing spin! Treat Dad to a 3-course banquet lunch with a mixed antipasto platter to start, followed by shared mains including ocean trout, roasted porchetta & ricotta gnocchi and to finish apple & rhubarb crumble with vanilla bean ice-cream. Plus, all dads will receive a complimentary Heineken 3 on arrival. And yes- there will be golf! More information here. 

2. Father's Day Long Lunch In Coogee

Give dad, or the man in your life, something a little different this year - a day out at the Fathers Day Long Lunch by Coogee Beach! It's taking place at the Taste of Coogee Food and Wine Festival, so the atmosphere will be incredible. The Father's Day Long Lunch is a sure fire winner with entertainment at the communal table.

3. Father's Day at Mejico Miranda

Want to make this Father’s Day deliciously special? Dine at Mejico Miranda and treat Dad to a Mejico Feast, accompanied by a complementary Sol beer.

So, sit back, relax, and crack open a cold one with Dad while enjoying the delicious flavours of Mejico Miranda’s new menu. Dad will love the lamb adobo served with housemade chimichurri, rolled pork belly with chorizo and sherry soaked raisins, chorizo and mozzarella quesadilla and the always risky but rewarding jalapeno poppers – you never know how hot they’ll be!
