He never looks for praises.

He’s never one to boast

For those he loves the most


Daddy I know your secret

That you’ve tried to keep suppressed

I promise I won’t tell anyone

But I know you like me best!


A Father Is . . .

A father is a source of strength,

A teacher and a guide,

The one his family looks up to

With loving trust and pride…

A father is a helper

With a willing hand to lend,

A partner, an adviser,

And the finest kind of friend.

8. How To Give Dad The Best Father’s Day Australia Ever!

Be very, very quiet. Why? The first thing you need to do for Father’s Day Australia is channel your inner mouse and scurry silently around the house. The old man works hard, day in, day out. But not today. On Father’s Day Australia you ensure he gets a lay in. Let him rest.

When he gets up, sit him down in his big, comfy chair. Father’s Day Australia will begin with a barista style coffee. Not the instant gloop he gulps as he rushes out the door.

Brekkie is to be the first of three sumptuous meals planned for Father’s Day Australia. Sure he isn’t from the smashed avo on rye generation, but he won’t argue with bacon and eggs.

At this point of Father’s Day Australia you’ll have placated the bear. He’s rested, calmed and fed.

The morning is now his. Sunday papers on the couch, Fox on the box, nine holes on the course or a bit of Xbox. Whatever he wants!

Which then brings us to lunch. Now if it’s possible, make Father’s Day Australia a big family affair. And if you’ve got intergenerational Dad’s- Grandpa and maybe even Great-Grandpa then round them all up.

Of course just before lunch is the traditional “giving of the gifts”. Make Dad(s) comfortable in the seat of honour and let the reverence begin. And remember, unique Fathers Day gifts are always a winner. A Father’s Stein Beer glass. A Vampire Wine Glass. A Daddy Cino coffee mug.

The lunch menu for Father’s Day Australia will be selected from Dad’s favourites, which could mean anything from the traditional roast, to seafood, to a BBQ.

Now lunch is done. It’s time for a snooze on the couch. No, not you. You’re on the dishes and cleaning up. It’s Papa bear who gets the zzzz’s.

The final piece de resistance to complete the perfect Father’s Day Australia is when he stirs from his nap, tell him to dress in his Sunday best. When he asks why- just tell him to do it. No questions asked.

Whilst he’s been napping, Mum’s taken the opportunity to dress to impress because the final touch to  Fathers Day Australia is a romantic candle -lit dinner for two. But what about us you ask?

Simple. You can toss up who’s who, but you’ll be chef, waiter and chief bottle washer. Dad and the love of his life get to share an intimate dinner and the opportunity to rave about what wonderful kids they’ve raised. What more praise could you want?

Tomorrow you can guarantee that everyone within earshot is going to hear about the best Father’s Day Australia ever!
