If your Dad appreciates the finer things in life, bring him down to the Stingray Lounge at the QT for a Man Tea, the Dad version of a high tea. Word is that there will be plenty of mouth watering treats including Moreton Bay bug rolls, mini loaded fries and smoked brisket sliders. To top it off Dad can enjoy a bite-sized Glenmorangie single malt whiskey semifreddo. All Dad’s will also receive a gift and complimentary beverage upgrade!

We’re running all four of our cruises this Father’s day with a Morning Tea cruise at 10:45am, Buffet Lunch cruise at 12:30pm, Afternoon cruise at 2:30pm and Sunset cruise at 5pm. Dad and the rest of the family will enjoy a 90 minute cruise through the stunning Gold Coast waterways- the perfect way to relax and unwind. See stunning views of the Surfers Paradise skyline, cruise past million dollar homes and enjoy a drink from our fully licensed bar.


Jet Ski Safari

Surprise Dad with an adrenaline filled Jet Ski tour! Jet Ski Safari’s is running a special Father’s Day breakfast tour which includes a free breakfast for Dad. Departing from Mariner’s Cove Marina, Jet Ski Safari tours take you weaving past beautiful islands, beaches, sandbars and through mangroves. On their breakfast run they make a stop at Couran Cove resort or Tipplers Cafe on South Stradbroke Island for a freshly prepared buffet breakfast. You’re also welcome to go for a swim and do some wildlife spotting before returning to Main Beach. Visit for more info.


Pasta Making Class

Salt Meats Cheese in Surfers Paradise is holding a pasta making class for Dad’s. If you need to drop your Dad a subtle hint on how to cook better, or if he thinks he’s a chef, this pasta making class is the perfect Father’s Day gift. The class is for beginners and Dad will learn how to make pasta from scratch! Of course you get to enjoy the fruits of your hard work afterwards with a glass of vino.
