Things to do for Father’s Day in Elsternwick Village
EVENT ENDED: This article is for a past event.
As Father’s Day approaches, there are a bunch of fun things to do in Elsternwick Village to show your dad how much you care.
Dads have a reputation for being low fuss, however this can make things difficult when you want to treat him to something that he will enjoy and remember.
But you don’t need grand gestures to get your point across. In fact, simply spending time with him or giving a small token of your appreciation can go a long way.
Luckily, Elsternwick Village is full of places to spoil the old man, whether it’s sharing a meal together or sending him off to a massage for some rest and relaxation.
So, if you’re looking for things to do with your dad, here are some ways to spend Father’s Day (Sunday, September 1) in Elsternwick Village:
Take him out for brunch
Taking your dad out for a bite to eat sounds simple enough, but there are nice ways to make it a special occasion.
For something different, why not try a bottomless brunch or check ahead to see if there are any special menus for Father’s Day?
Of course, Father’s Day falls on a Sunday and the first day of spring, so book your spot early to avoid disappointment.
Catch a film
Heading to the cinemas to see a film is one of those family activities that has stood the test of time.
Sure, the types of films you and your dad saw together when you were little may have changed, but some things are the same: the delight of the big screen, the buckets of salty popcorn, the tasty ice-creams and chocolates.
Treat your dad to a visit to Elsternwick’s Classic Cinemas to see a new Hollywood blockbuster, an Australian-made tale or a foreign film. There’s something for everyone.
Treat him to a massage
A massage is a great way to unwind and reenergise, so treat dad to some quality downtime at one of Elsternwick Village’s massage spas.
Booking him a massage is a thoughtful way to help him destress and soothe sore muscles, especially in this fast-paced world.
Whether it’s a simple neck massage or an intensive full-body massage, you can find a treatment that can be tailored to Dad’s taste.
Shout dad an afternoon drink
After all the things the old man has helped you with over the years, he probably deserves a drink.
Head down to one of the bars and pubs in Elsternwick Village and shout him a beer or beverage of his choice to say thanks.
It’s a simple gesture, but what’s better than spending some one-on-one time with dad over a drink?
