3 Head up to Palm Beach

You can treat dad to breakfast or brunch at the Boathouse or take a walk to the lighthouse or just spend the day on the beach.

8  Have a picnic overlooking Lake Belvedere at Sydney Olympic Park


This is a lovely space out at Sydney Olympic Park and it’s completely serene.


You can find more information at the post about our pram walk around Lake Belvedere.


If that’s too far out for you, try a picnic at Davidson Park in Forestville, it’s so beautiful, you feel completely far away from Sydney.

I hope you have a wonderful Father’s Day in Sydney!!
