1.XXXX Brewery Tour | Brisbane

One of the most iconic beer brands in the country, the Brisbane's XXXX Brewery is a top choice for beer-loving Dads. A true blue Aussie gift, Dad can enjoy a tour around the grounds to see how his favourite beer is made before kicking back and washing the day down with an ice cold schooner of beer (on the house).

The tour lasts for 90 minutes and at the conclusion, he'll be given a $5 merchandise voucher so he can take a piece of the brewery home with him. As the daughter of a longtime XXXX supporter, this is my top pick for the Dad's out there who enjoy a nice cold beer at the end of the day.

2.Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb | Sydney

Another iconic Australian experience, climbing the Harbour Bridge is something you'll never forget. There are a number of climbs available, each ranging in price, these include the sampler climb, the night climb, the day climb and the twilight climb.

Your Dad will feel on top of the world as he admires the sweeping views of the greater Sydney region. This is even a great gift for local Dads as it might not be something he's ever thought of buying for himself.

3.Sydney Harbour Tall Ship Cruise | Sydney

Cruise along the iconic Sydney Harbour on an authentic tall ship from the 1900s for two hours over lunch. A dream come true for nautical enthusiasts, this lunch cruise combines captivating story telling on an authentic vessel with impressive views and a delicious lunch.

If Dad's feeling extra strong and adventurous on the day there's the chance for one guest per trip to climb the mast and help release the sails.

4.Rally Car Driving Experience | Colo Heights

Allow Dad to let it rip behind the wheel of a rally car at Colo Park in New South Wales. With the choice of 8 or 16 laps, he'll feel like a true racer come to the end of the experience. The 2 Car Blast will let him enjoy the 16 laps in two different cars, making this an awesome experience for the old man. If your Dad is a lover of fast cars then hands down, this is the gift for him.

5.Deep Sea & Reef Fishing Charter | Sydney

Let Dad flex his fishing muscles with this deep sea and reef fishing charter from Sydney. If he's a keen fisherman or wannabe angler then this is the ultimate experience for him. The six-hour journey will let him get his line wet and he might even come home with a big catch to cook up for dinner (so it's a win for everyone).

All necessary equipment is provided on the day including bait, licenses and professional gear, so Dad will have no excuse if he doesn't come home with a catch.
