They always say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so show dad just how much you love him this Father’s Day by taking him out for a great meal. From Little Italy through to amazing patisseries in St Kilda, Melbourne is a hub of fantastic eateries perfect for all fathers. Whether it be breakfast, lunch, dinner or a day-long spectacle, here are a few of the places you could visit to make your dad feel extra special this Father’s Day.
Does the word ‘buffet’ get your dad’s attention? Take him to SkyHigh in Dandenong:
If a buffet breakfast or lunch sounds like the perfect outing for you and your dad, SkyHigh is the perfect place. Found on the uppermost reach of the Dandenong Ranges, you both will be treated to stunning views of Melbourne City, Port Philip Bay and the Yarra Valley – not to mention an amazing spread of delicious food. With the breakfast buffet coming in at $45 per adult, and lunch coming in at $75 per adult, this is a Father’s Day outing that your dad will cherish. Bookings are essential, so be sure to call ahead.
Is your dad a fishing enthusiast? SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is the obvious choice:
If your dad loves everything marine, take him to SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium for a unique dining experience you can’t get anywhere else. For just $50 per adult ($43 if you’re a member), you’ll receive a big breakfast that includes scrambled eggs, bacon, potato rosti, slow-cooked heirloom tomato, brown cap mushrooms and an English muffin – and all the while you’ll have spectacularly tranquil views of tropical marine life. Once again, bookings are essential so be sure to contact the friendly team before the day!
If your dad loves getting out and having fun, take him to Luna Park:
Sure, it may also be a day for the kids, but at Luna Park, your father can enjoy a free sausage sizzle and free rides all day long! All fathers receive a free unlimited ride ticket when accompanied by one fully paying child. Family, fun and a free snag: there’s not much more a dad could want!
