    The best ideas for Father’s Day fun at the Parklands

The Parklands never fails to deliver fun and unconventional ways to spoil your favourite man this Father’s Day. With Dad’s day just around the corner (this weekend), check out the long list of immersive and hands-on experiences you can share.


Each will give you fresh air, time in nature and best of all, quality time together.


#1 Father’s Day Treasure Hunt


Is dad an explorer? This great self-guided trail is perfect for him, with tricky obstacles and activities to complete around Centennial Park before you get to make dad a special gift! Use all your findings and work together to create a masterpiece! It runs from 10.30 am – 5.00 pm and costs just $19 (per child) to complete.

#2 Warrior Fun


Get active for a good cause with the IMF Father’s Day Warrior Run this Sunday. This very special event actively promotes social change in support of the Indigenous Marathon Project, with a big picture focus on celebrating the strong ‘warriors’ in our communities. It offers a unique cultural experience too, with traditional music and entertainment for the family.



#3 Golf and roast for lunch


Test out your swing and enjoy some friendly competition with dad on the newly developed Driving Range at Moore Park Golf, or enjoy tee time with 8 holes and a cart for Father’s Day teeing off from 6.00 am – 7:30am. After you’ve worked up an appetite, get into the clubhouse restaurant for a Father’s Day roast lunch with all the trimmings!

#4 BBQ it at Centennial Homestead


Grab a take-away sausage sizzle or brekkie roll from The Pantry, or make a booking at the restaurant in Centennial Homestead and enjoy some family-time with a sumptuous steak and barbecue-inspired lunch menu. Foodies will love this one!

#5 Sweet honey treat


This bargain buy comes in at $14 for a 300 gram jar of Centennial Parklands’ homegrown honey. Its raw, unheated and made by the busy little bees in on site, which means it has unique flavours from the flowers in Centennial Park. Tasty!
