The Ultimate Father's Day Experience Guide

Dads are notoriously difficult to buy gifts for at the best of times. Wallets, beard trimmers, undies and Bunnings vouchers - we’ve all had these on our gift giving lists and seen them worn out or used on a DIY project that never saw completion.

This Father's Day, why not score some extra brownie points and gift a quality experience in Moreton Bay that dear old dad will talk about long after it’s over!

Ottaba Llama Walks

Want to spend quality time with your dad? How about spending quality time with your dad… and a Llama?

Only a 40 minutes drive north of Brisbane, embrace your inner animal lover and soak up the Moreton Bay sunshine with Ottaba Llama Walks.

This unique family-friendly experience on Bribie Island allows you chat, pat and lead your new furry friend along the stunning Banksia Beach.

Even if this gift is purchased with you in mind, we’re certain he’ll leave with a smile on his face.

Bribie Island Boat Charters

Does your dad like boats? Does he also like fishing? Say no more… Bribie Island Boat Charters has your Father’s Day boating needs covered!

With comfortable non-slip flooring, cushioned seating and a shade canopy, Bribie Island Boat Charters offer a relaxed day of fishing along Pumicestone Passage, one of Moreton Bay’s most scenic waterways.

With 4 and 6 person boat hires available, we guarantee your dad will have a fin-tastic time out on the water, but be prepared for all the fishing dad jokes!

Father's Day Strawberry Sesh

Give your dad what he really wants this Father’s Day… a beer in a strawberry field!

Enjoy roaming the farm picking strawberries, cucamelons and finger limes before relaxing to live music with a local beer from Bribie Island Brewing Company.

What makes this event even sweeter is that Luvaberry’s Father’s Day Strawberry Session is presented part of Tastes of Moreton Bay Feastival, on now until 25 September.
