Father’s Day Guide 2023




Welcome to our Father’s Day Guide 2023.

We’ve pulled together some great ideas for Dad’s Day for you to use as gifting and dining inspiration, to support local and treat Dad, Grandpa, or the person that fills the role of “Dad” on this day.

Popinky – Silver & Stone Workshops

We’re offering  a Father’s Day special running all through September!
This is your invitation to make a sterling silver metal stamped ring- minimum booking is 2 ppl, maximum booking is 6 ppl.
You’ll be part of  a fun class where you get to choose between hundreds of metal stamps. This class runs for around 3 hours.
There is a cafe on site, so you can bring a coffee and snacks back to the studio for your class.
Best suited for ages 12 and above.
Note: Attendees don’t have to be with a father or father figure, we understand that not every family has someone like that present, all are welcome!

Located: Warnervale

$130 per person.

Crate Day

Crate Day offers unique gifts for men with predesigned crates or you can create your own crate, just for him. We have crates including delicious biltong, meat rubs, sauces and the best bluetooth meat thermometer, plus award winning craft beers and accessories guys love. The goodies come in handmade wooden crates and the catch is the crates are sealed shut by Bonnie and her nail gun! The only way in is with the pry bar that’s delivered with the crate – he doesn’t just get a gift, he has a challenge with an awesome reward at the end. It is as much fun for the men to open as it is for the family watching him struggle!

If you don’t want him to miss out on this excellent gift you need to place your orders before Wednesday the 23rd for Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne, and before Monday the 28th of August for the Central Coast and the rest of Sydney.

Oldfield Cellars

Father’s Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate and honour the special men in our lives, and what better way to do that than with a unique and memorable gift?

This year, consider surprising your dad with a selection of craft beers, boutique wines, or a specialty spirit.

Craft beers from breweries across Australia and the world, artisanal wines from small vineyards, or rare and distinctive spirits can be a delightful treat for any dad who appreciates the finer things in life. With great prices and a wide variety to choose from, you can find that perfect gift to suit your father’s taste here at Oldfield Cellars. Give him a Father’s Day to remember by raising a glass to his happiness and celebrating his special day.
