It’s nearing that time of year when we celebrate fatherhood and honour the dad’s in our society. It’s time to start thinking about an awesome gift that really says, “Thanks dad, you’re the best”. Take time-out with a naturally refreshing break to the Sunshine Coast, where he can take a hit of golf, sample a beer at the Sunshine Coast Brewery, talk about the one that never got away after a fishing charter, get a three in one package, or for the ultimate adrenalin hit, jump out of a plane. It’s time to find a hole in dad's diary! The Sunshine Coast is a hub for golf lovers, and no matter whether he is a beginner or pro golfer, he will be spoilt for choice with over 20 courses to choose from including five championship courses. So come on, give the main man in your life a pair of outlandish socks and a voucher for some outstanding golf on the Sunshine Coast - the perfect destination for the perfect round.
The thrillseeker dad can experience life under the sea without getting wet at Underwater World; take on adrenaline pumping attractions at Aussie World, and if he feels the need for speed, the Big Kart Track will let him pit his wits against big sweeping bends, challenging chicanes, and hair-rising hairpins. For the ultimate in adrenaline pumping action, let dad jump out of a plane with a tandem skydive. He can jump over one of the most stunning coastlines in Australia, landing at Coolum Beach with Skydive Ramblers.
Dad might want to go deep sea fishing or catch a Barra from the bank. He can head out on a deep sea fishing charter and catch the big one that will give him boasting rights, or if he prefers the solid ground you can all head to Suncoast Barra Fishing Park and catch a whoppa! If a total chillout is what dad needs, let him sample a range of craft and specialty beers such as Old English Bitter, Rye ESB, smoked Rauch Bier and a Bavarian Hefe-Weizen. At the 2009 Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA), the Sunshine Coast Brewery was named a finalist for the prestigious Champion Australian microbrewery award and won a swag of medals.
