Father’s Day is the ultimate opportunity to celebrate the man who raised you – and we have plenty of ideas on just how to celebrate! As 3rd of September approaches, consider an alternative to the usual socks and ties and treat Dad with the gift of quality time.
Below, we let you in on three unique and impressive ways to ensure your Dad not only feels your love, but genuinely enjoys his day.
1. 18 Holes at Links Hope Island Golf Course
Just minutes in a buggy from the Resort, Sanctuary Cove Golf Club offers five-Star facilities and is ranked as one of Australia’s top ten Resort courses. Take Dad along for a day of sun and swing as you explore 18 picturesque rounds of Resort style golf.
Designed by five-time British Open champion, Peter Thomson, the beautifully kept greens are open to all, shared only with a family of kangaroos.

2. Gentleman’s High Tea at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort
Perfect for all the family, spoil Dad with a bespoke Gentleman’s High Tea fit for a king.
Hosted at the Resort’s Verandah Restaurant and Bar, Executive Chef Matt Hart has put a masculine twist on the tradition of High Tea.
Embracing the traditional three-tiered stand ritual, Gentleman’s High Tea starts with s’mores with gooey marshmallow, whisky ganache and short bread. Lady-like finger sandwiches and scones are traded for lamb sliders and sweet potato fries, while the third tier offers Malaysian chicken drummettes and wild mushroom arancini.
The Gentleman’s High Tea is complete with craft beer, though we recommend the whisky flights, from the extensive and rare library of the Globe’s finest blends.
3. Jet-Pack Adventures
One for the adrenaline junkie, watch Dad soar to new heights with a thrilling session of Jet-packing out on the Gold Coast’s sparkling waters.
Let him live out his James Bond dreams as you both gear up for the session in the provided equipment and get ready to blast your way along the water, twirling and diving to his heart’s content.
The friendly team will also capture your moments on film for you – the perfect memento of your day together.
Available as a private lesson or as a group session (ideal for a whole family experience!).
As always, our concierge are on hand to guests requiring more information or assistance in securing the perfect Father’s Day experience.
