While Dads just love to spend time with their children on Father’s Day, they also love a little treat and a day away from those neverending odd jobs around the house.

To give him a break and put a smile on his dial, here are ten ways to treat your dad this year!

  1. Pick up a card and gift from the Rainbow Beach Pharmacy – maybe a Maroons shirt?
  2. Grab a cake from Ed’s Bakery, pack a picnic rug and a thermos and head to the Blow for a picnic amongst nature.
  3. Take Dad and the family to the Tin Can Bay Country Club for a round of golf and a meal at the Chinese restaurant – or just skip the golf and enjoy the cold beers.
  4. Pick up a bottle of Dad’s favourite from the Rainbow Beach Hotel Bottle Shop.
  5. Gympie One Stop Furniture Shop at Cooloola Cove has the perfect dad’s chair and even has ZipPay so you can grab it now and pay it off.
  6. The Gypsy Barberess have a Father’s Day special of a 30 minute traditional cut throat     shave with beard design, massage and hot towels only $20! If they haven’t tried this – it’s a real treat!
  7. Cooloola Mitre 10 has so many gift ideas – what about a beer kit?
  8. How about a day fishing? Gardiners Fisheries in Rainbow and The Chandlery at the Bay are both incredible sources of information and fishing gear.
  9. For those who love food and are hard to please take them to lunch or dinner at Rainbow Beach Pizza, Arcobaleno on the Beach, the Rainbow Beach Hotel or the Marina Bar and Grill. Or check out the Father’s Day specials at the Rainbow Beach Surf Club – Surf n Turf with Chips and Salad $28.00 or QLD Parmigiana with chips and salad  $23.00 – both come with a complimentary pot of Mid Beer!
  10. For those dads who just love gardening, head over to Cooloola Cove Landscape and Garden Supplies and surprise him with the gear for a new garden.

A Father’s Love

We asked dentist and father of two daughters, Mark Cull of Channon and Lawrence Dental, his thoughts on being a dad:

“‘Wow, where do the years go?’  I know this is a clichéd saying however I’m using it because it is so true.

“Children suddenly become teenagers and then young adults. But what a joy to watch them grow and walk independently through our ever-changing world. Being a father in our environment is about balancing time and energy between financial and emotional support.

“As a dad you can never be sure if you managed to get it right, however, as a dad, I do know that I am very proud of my girls. They choose to show up in the world as happy, positive, grateful and dedicated young women and therefore are contributing to society in a meaningful way.

“Now they are busy forging their own lives. I treasure the times we connect whether through a text, phone call or a visit. Children learn through observation, so I strive to be the best version of myself I can be in all aspects of my life, displaying resilience when times are tough and celebrating through the fun times.

“A word for the younger dad’s out there, from a quote I have seen- “they might not remember what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel”.

Whatever you decide to do and however you decide to celebrate this special day, make sure Dad has a Happy Father’s Day!
