There are so many options to spoil your dad in the Scenic Rim.

If the man in your life fancies himself as a bit of a legend in his own lunchtime, this might just be the perfect way to celebrate Father’s Day.

Father’s Day family fun on Tommerup’s Farm (1 September) will offer hours of good old fashioned fun for the whole family to celebrate.

Contest the Farmers Challenge trophy, feed the farm animals, dine from the Abbiocco Food Truck and the classic Darlington State School vintage cake stall, drink local beers and wines, kick back and relax to live music and stock up on Tommerup’s own goodies from the farm larder.

2. Quench dad’s thirst

Does your dad like a nice cold beer? We’ve got some beautiful craft breweries in the Scenic Rim. Sit back and enjoy a brew or two, and a good chat with your dad.

Maybe beer isn’t your dad’s thing. That’s okay! We’ve got some great wine and spirits on offer, and even a local coffee plantation on Tamborine Mountain, where he can get a brew of a different kind.

Be sure to phone ahead to book your spot! Other dads might have the same idea.
