Here’s to the dads

The kitchen champions, homework helpers, Saturday coaches and fun makers. This Father’s Day, we celebrate the dads and father figures in our lives, for all they are.

Father’s Day Date

Father’s Day in Australia is on the first Sunday in September (not to be confused with Mother’s Day, which is on the second Sunday in May). So, while it isn’t on the same date each year, it always falls on a Sunday, giving most dads a welcome day off to spend with their loved ones. In 2024 Father’s Day lands on Sunday September 1st, 2024.

How to make Father’s Day special

What do dads really want for Father’s Day? It depends on the dad! Whether they’re a sports lover or bookworm, a cooking maestro, (self-confessed) style icon – or all the above – there’s a gift with their name on it. But special doesn’t have to mean large or expensive. A thoughtful offering that shows you know what they need (or want), or personal words on a greeting card, really make Father’s Day meaningful.

Things to do on Father’s Day

One Sunday each year, we get a day to honour the special men in our lives. So, serve them up a delicious brunch with their most-loved treats. Take to the backyard, or the boardgames, for some family fun time. And wind down the day with his favourite movie (even if for the fifth time). It’s his day, so whatever you do or give, a happy Father’s Day is one that’s all about celebrating him.
