Top action & adventure gifts for Dad

August 21, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

We all know Dad is going to pretend to be surprised when opening the new socks Mum thought he could do with, but is that really what your Dad wants this Father’s Day? Why not make his day and give Dad a Lake Macquarie adventure to remember!


These activities may result in long, crazy dad stories… please purchase at your own risk.

The Dare Devil Dad

Want to test how much of a dare devil your dad really is? Or, maybe you just want to scare him enough so he will stop telling dad jokes for more than 5 minutes – either way, Lake Macquarie has the perfect gift ideas for your dare devil dad!

For an experience on the Lake that’s anything but tranquil, take Dad for a spin on a JetBuzz jet boat and watch his heart rate soar as you enjoy full circle spins, power brake stops and fun fish tails – you can even opt for the Ocean Extreme adventure and let your old man enjoy additional thrills and spills out in the ocean.

If up, up and away is Dad’s idea of a great day, then the antics of Australia’s only Red Bull Air Race Team will be the highlight of all the gifts you’ve ever bought him. Book the flight of his life with a joyride or acrobatic flight reaching speeds of up to 400km/h with the original speed demon, Matt Hall, from Matt Hall Racing.

Really want to get a squeal out of Dad? Why not treat him to a flight at Newcastle’s closest beach skydive, enjoying stunning beach views as he falls from 15,000 feet with Skydiving Newcastle. Offering a raft of sky diving experiences and specialising in tandem dives, the friendly team are on hand for dads brave enough to take the plunge.

The Fishing Father

Whether he’s a novice, advanced angler or weekend warrior on the loose, the immense Lake Macquarie is a happy hunting ground for fishing fathers of all varieties – just make sure he leaves the socks and sandals at home…

Give Dad the fishing trip he’ll never forget! Lake Macquarie Fishing Charters offers day fishing charters or extended fishing safaris with experienced and knowledgeable crew that will take your dad to the best fishing locations across the Lake.

Rather keep your old man away from other dads to avoid him picking up new dad jokes? We have a great solution – JetBuzz offers a range of boats for hire, from tinnies to a 12 person day tripper so your dad can enjoy a day on the Lake doing what he does best – and you can join the fun.

The Placid Papa

For the placid papa who loves the outdoors, get Dad on horseback for a giddy-up! mountain adventure with AAA Horse Riding. Dad can enjoy a guided tour with the experts, exploring the foothills of the beautiful Watagan Mountains and surrounding rain forest on horseback with the whole family in tow.

Or let Dad escape to Pulbah Island… Pack a picnic lunch and hire the old guy a kayak from School of Yak to explore Lake Macquarie’s largest island. If you’re looking for a memorable day trip for Dad to remember, Pulbah Island is your go-to. The largest island in Lake Macquarie, Pulbah Island is approximately 1.6 kilometres in length and is known for the large boulders and caves which dot its foreshore.

Whether he rocks the white joggers, is full of cringe-worthy dad jokes, has a story for everything or calls himself “King of the BBQ”, we love our Dads. Give him a Father’s Day adventure to remember in Lake Macquarie.
