While lots of Dads might think of Father's Day as just another hallmark holiday, I disagree. Our Dads don't always get a lot of appreciation for all the endless help with moving houses, fixing cars and computers and solving problems they give us all year round. Father's Day is a great opportunity to show him how much you care.
Rather than another pair of socks or bottle of whisky, why not buy him tickets to an experience you can share this Father's Day? It'll be a memory you can both treasure for years, rather than a trinket that gets pushed to the back of the cupboard.
Here is a list of some great local Adelaide experiences that you can share with your Dad this Father's Day, and really make his year!
Book your dad in for the RoofClimb this Father's Day and give him the gift of epic views across Adelaide, an exhilarating adrenaline fix and a whole new look at Adelaide Oval and its surrounds from above.
Book now and choose from a spectacular panorama of the city at twilight or during the day for an uninterrupted view of Adelaide, the hills and beyond. You can even add a RoofClimb to a ticket to the cricket if you really want to make him feel like a king! Adult tickets start from $99.
If Father's Day for you means entertaining your dad, your dad's dad, your mother's dad, your partner's dad and whoever else, The HandleBar is a unique way to bring larger groups together, while exploring some of Adelaide's best bars.
If you have a smaller group but still want to hop on, you can check for available spots on the HandleBar website.
Who doesn't enjoy the smells, sounds and sights of Adelaide's favourite fresh food mecca, the Central Markets? Choose from a range of tours, including breakfast, lunch, a Cantonese seafood spread, champagne and wine tastings, and even a hands-on cooking demonstration.
If your Dad is a self-confessed rev-head, a Mallala Motor Sport Park Racecar driving experience will get his engine's running! Whether he takes the wheel himself or bashes around in the front seat with a professional, there's a range of different options to make his year.
Packages range from $199 to $499 on this magnificent track with some Father's Day specials available for a limited time. Dates can book out quickly, so if you'd like find out more and surprise him for Father's Day, don't delay!
