Father’s Day is almost here - it’s on Sunday 2 September for those who need a little reminder - and the Sutherland Shire is ready to celebrate with lots of activities to make Dad feel extra special. Here’s our pick of what’s happening in the Shire:

Make dad a gift

Kids can make a gift for dad at Bunnings Kirrawee and Bunnings Caringbah. They are hosting a Father's Day family night on Thursday 30 August from 6pm to 8pm. Kirrawee has refreshments, a huge rock climbing wall and miniature cars for the kids plus a performance by one of the Shire’s favourite magicians, Joey Presto. At Caringbah kids can make dad a spice rack and decorate cookies, and try out the Playstation and Wii games on the mobile gaming truck. 

Bunnings Kirrawee: 127-141 Bath Road, Kirrawee

Bunnings Caringbah: 100 - 104 Parraweena Road, Miranda

A round of golf with a difference

Take Dad to Par 3 Golf and Soccer at Sylvania on Sunday for a round of family golf, or try out the new Soccer Golf craze - a combination of soccer, golf and mini golf. On Father’s Day Dad plays for free! 

Par 3 Golf and Soccer: 223B Belgrave Esplanade, Sylvania Waters

Whether your Dad is a 'golfing gun' or an 'enthusiastic beginner' looking to improve his game, Fathers Day is the ideal opportunity to introduce him to the latest sporting craze to hit the Shire Interactive Golf. All Father’s Day bookings at X-Golf Shire include a special gift pack for Dad (stubby cooler, coffee mug and key-ring) plus his favourite beverage on arrival for FREE. 

X-Golf Shire: 3/40-42 Meta Street, Caringbah

Dad’s chill out while Mum’s flip out

Flip Out is flipping upside down this Father’s Day with a special offer for Mums to jump free with the kids, so Dad can spend an hour or so chilling on the couch or out and about on Father’s Day. 

Flip Out: 12 Parraweena Road, Caringbah

Cheers to Dad

Cronulla RSL has $5 schooners all day for Dad plus barefoot lawn bowls and a raffle to win NRL Grand Final tickets. We don’t know any Dad who wouldn’t be excited by tickets to the biggest game of the year! 

Cronulla RSL: 38 Gerrale St, Cronulla NSW 2230

Club Central Menai has special Father’s Day offers for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Plus every time a member swipes in between now and Father’s Day they get one entry into the draw to win two Bon Jovi concert tickets. The winner is drawn on Father’s Day. 

Club Central Menai: 44-60 Allison Cres, Menai NSW 2234

Row, row, row your boat…

A family of five fits into a row boat at Audley Boatshed, where you can also hire canoes and kayaks and paddle up Kangaroo Creek through our beautiful bushland. The Boat Shed is open from 9am to 5pm. 

Audley Boatshed: 150 Audley Road, Audley (Royal National Park)

If you fancy an adventure in and around the Royal National Park, check out Bundeena Kayaks, they run a range of guided tours as well as hire. 

Bundeena Kayaks: Bonnie Vale Picnic Grounds, Sea Breeze Lane, Bundeena

The Boatshed at Woronora is open from 8.30 am to 5pm for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, and of course boat and canoe hire. Restaurant bookings are recommended (max 12 booking).  

The Boatshed Woronora: 131 Prince Edward Park Road, Woronora

On your bike

Perfect for a family outing for kids over 10, the mountain bike trails at Lucas Heights are a great spot to take Dad for a Father’s Day ride. If you’re free on Saturday 1 September check out September Dig Day. You can get your hands dirty helping with trail design, drainage works, repairs and new trail construction. It’s a fun day with lots of awesome people - join in from 7.45am to 12.30pm. Find the gang on Facebook.

Check out some of the other cycling trails on offer in the Sutherland Shire.

Head out to ANZ Stadium for round 25 as our Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs. Main game kick-off is at 2pm.

Happy Father’s Day!
