1. Get his adrenaline pumping

2. Take him out for a picnic

Pack the picnic basket and take Dad out for a relaxing day with beautiful scenery. The Moreton Bay region has some fantastic picnic spots set in both bayside and hinterland locations for you to discover, including:

3. Go beach driving in a 4WD

Treat Dad to the thrilling experience of beach-bashing on the beautiful Bribie Island. Take a tour of the island with G’day Adventure Tours and sit back, relax and enjoy being chauffeured through the natural wonders of Bribie Island's national park, spotting some native wildlife and learning about the historic remnants.

7. Explore the hinterland in a 50s-style motorcycle

There is no better way to experience all the Moreton Bay region hinterland has to offer than in the sidecar of a 1950s-style motorbike. Dad won't forget a ride with Topps Adventure tours, who operate motorcycle tours through Mount Mee, Dayboro, Samford, Mount Glorious, D’Aguilar and Woodford
