It is the one day a year where dads across the country get to be celebrated for being a dad and for many that means having to laugh at the dad jokes, even if they aren’t funny. Having this one day per year for the father figure means spending time with them and maybe getting a gift or two.
Father’s Day is on Sunday, 4 September and this is a chance to get a head start on planning the perfect day for your special guy.
The day has become synonymous with gift-giving and family bonding, although here in Australia the standard traditions have adopted aspects of Australian culture to include local activities or gift ideas found only in Australia.
Being a Sunday, there are often many Father’s Day markets or markets in general he would like to visit with his family. It could be a day out with dad to an event or a hike, a car drive, or any other interest he may have because for many dads, spending some time out with the family is just as good as any gift.
Being Australian, a good ole BBQ or picnic can be a restful family outing because when dads get behind the flames you know the BBQ kit you bought for him five years ago will come in handy and he will get to do the double click tong check.
