Father’s Day is coming up and if you’re lucky enough to be spending the day in Noosa with your dad – or if you’re shopping from afar- we’ve got you covered with our guide to the best ways to spoil your dad this Father’s Day, with some local goodness from these Noosa companies.
Many local Noosa products can be shopped online and sent directly to your dad’s door. For a sure-to-please Father’s Day gift, get online and order from some of these local favourites.
Craft beer delivered to your door? Yes please! Try Noosa craft beer favourites Boiling Pot Brewing Co or Land and Sea for online orders. For even more beer-loving goodness, Heads of Noosa has curated a Father’s Day gift pack featuring their favourite Japanese Lager merchandise. Dad not a beer drinker? Check out Noosa's boutique distilleries; 2020 Distillery, Pomona Distilling Co. and Fortune Noosa Heads Distillery.
Can’t decide what to order this year? Put it in the capable hands of the legends at Noosa Gift Co and send your dad a little Noosa love. They’ve got pre-selected gift hampers for every kind of dad, like the Old Mate selection of locally brewed craft beers, or The Hastings for gin-lovers, and The Surfer.
Taking orders via email for their small-batch fine chocolates, Noosa Chocolate Factory delivers fresh, handmade chocolates and artisan rocky road to your door, from their factory space in the Noosa Industrial Estate.
Pay it forward
Got a picky Dad? Keep everyone happy, with a gift voucher or outdoor adventure experience at one of the many Noosa providers. Whether your dad loves surfing, wildlife spotting, mountain biking or skydiving, there's something for everyone in Noosa.
If your dad’s more the golfing type, you can’t go past a voucher for a day on the green at The Noosa Springs Golf & Spa Resort, where he can golf all day and relax with a cold beer in the country club all afternoon. Take advantage of their Father's Day offer - Spa or Nine & Dine - to enjoy breakfast or lunch, followed by nine holes of golf or a thermal spa experience, for $79. Or head into the Noosa Country, to the sprawling Noosa Hills Par 3 Golf Course, with its hinterland views and onsite cafe, for a relaxed, family-friendly day of golfing.
For an experience to remember, book a day out with local foodie tour company, Creative Tours. They have a range of equally tempting experiences to choose from; we like the Noosa Drinks Tour - stopping at Dingo Creek Vineyard, Pomona Distilling Co, 20 20 Distillery and Noosa Hinterland Brewing Co- with lunch, local cheese plate, beer and wine tastings all included, or the Noosa Distillery Tour - sampling gins, cheese platters, lunch and craft beers at 20 20 Distillery, Pomona Distilling Co and Fortune Noosa Heads Distillery.
Local electric bike hire company EcoTekk offer a range of tours, including unique e-bike tours along the sand of Noosa North Shore. Or they can deliver hire bikes to your door, for you to explore the Noosa region at your leisure. Or hit the Noosa Trail Network on a guided mountain bike tour from the locals at Spoke N Trail.
If your dad is the thrill-seeking type, grab this opportunity to send him skydiving, with local provider Skydive Noosa’s offer for Father’s Day, which saves you $40 on the regular ticket price on 15,000 foot tandem skydives.
Plan a day out on the Noosa River, with a pontoon boat from Pelican Boat Hire, O Boat Hire, T Boat Hire or Boardwalk Boat Hire, and explore the river at your own pace. Or visit Eco Noosa River Adventures for a selection of environmentally friendly electric picnic boats, stand-up paddles and nauticycles.
