1) Sydney Seafood School.

Whether dad is your average food consumer or a wanna- be chef, Sydney Seafood School offers a departure from the generic box of chocolates or recipe book this Father's Day. Located at Sydney Fish Market's Seafood School this cooking experience provides presentations from some of Sydney's top chefs. From Japanese, Italian, French and Thai influences, participants will enjoy demonstrations and cooking lessons whilst sampling complimentary wine and a seafood meal. There are a number of courses to chose from to stimulate your "foody" dad.

2) BBQ Detailing.

Surely we have all experienced dad mumbling to himself furiously as he scrubs the barbecue grill with beer five minutes before the guests arrive. Now this can be avoided with a full professional clean and service from a barbecue specialist. Companies like Bbq Rescue can take care of all the cleaning and maintenance needed and leave dad more time for the important things like burning the sausages.

3) A Home brew kit.

If your dad likes a project and enjoys a bit of the yeasty liquid gold occasionally, then splash out on a Home brew beer kit. Plenty of websites offer DIY guides to assist with purchasing and using new equipment and the brewing process. Experts like Aussie Brewmakers list basic kits from $79.95 up to deluxe packages for $179.00, and are the perfect place to start.

4) A Fishing charter.

If your looking for a relaxing activity that can be enjoyed on the open ocean then steer dad towards an adrenalin filled day fishing with the experts. There is no shortage of willing captains who can be chartered for a day of deep sea fishing. A good package includes all gear and lisences and some good tuition for learners if required. Try Bravo Fishing Charters for more info and throw in some ginger tablets for sea sickness just in case. Dad will thank you.

5) An iphone Apps bundles.

Maybe dad is a seasoned traveller, a keen cook or just a doting pop. Scour the Apple website for the perfect new
Applications to suit all his iphone needs Apple istore offers anything from - A guide to the world's cheeses? The currency converter travel App he might require when buying you rich gifts overseas? Or the Babyphone App which allows his handset to act as a baby monitor when the family is going off-road. Personally select and buy Apps to suit him and then download them to save him the brain strain.

6) A Day Spa package.

Treat dad to the quality 'manscaping' he doesn't yet know he needs. Skyrocketing in popularity, and with every service a man could desire, Men's day spas like Detail for Men offer primping and preening of feet, face, hair, body and hands, resulting in a total body overhaul. Purchase online or on-site and tailor the precise package he requires. Let dad get in touch with his inner man but be sure to tell him the spray tan machine is off limits.

7) Stand Up Paddle Board lessons.

Get him upright, on the ocean and away from the remote. As spring creeps up dad might enjoy learning how to look graceful pursuing the Hawaiian tradition of stand up paddle boarding before summer creates an audience on the beach. Buy a board or hire them from your local stand up guy where you can get Stand up lessons. Private lessons are $99 and group lessons are also available with this particular provider at Balmoral.

8) Handpresso handheld Coffee Maker.

Manufactured in France and widely embraced, this nifty little coffee maker will win dad admirers wherever he whips it out. Capable of living in his briefcase or even in his golf cart, the Handpresso comes in various models but the pod version is the most user-friendly. Ranging in price from $199.00 for the Wild Espresso Pod version to $349.00 for the Wild espresso outdoor kit, this little pocket rocket will keep dad up to his eyeballs in caffeine anywhere and anytime.

9) A Wine appreciation Course.

If dad's a keen wine drinker, likes to impress the ladies, or simply enjoys wine country, an appreciation course covers all bases. Providers can be found in all States, particularly those in good grape growing regions. Examples of courses that cover everything from beginner to expert and four week to one day experiences can be explored through The Wine Man.

10) A Heart Rate Monitor.

Dad is never too young to take stock of his heart rate. A dose of road rage, just putting out the bins or seeing the credit card bills might send his ticker into orbit, so it's handy for him to be able to keep track. The sporting market now offers a wide range of multi-purpose watches that monitor heart rate, keep correct time and act as a stop watch, all in one spunky wrist-piece. Major sporting producers like Rebel Sport have great ranges online and recommendations are often available. Check out the polarF530 heart rate monitor.
