Awesome Birthday Ideas in Sydney Perfect for Your Dad

Awesome Birthday Ideas in Sydney Perfect for Your Dad

Sam Bowden

Is Dad’s birthday coming up and you’re short on ideas? Stop panicking, because ClassBento has a huge range of birthday party ideas in Sydney perfect for dads! Whether he’s a dad who loves a shed or a dad who enjoys his creature comforts, we have plenty of Sydney workshops to suit whatever gifts for dad you may be hunting down! 


Birthday ideas for the Dad who loves to build

If your dad’s a bit of a blokey bloke and loves to build things, your birthday party ideas should reflect that too! With so many crafty things to do in Sydney, ClassBento has collected some of the best artisans, woodworkers and craft practitioners from all over the harbour city to impart their wisdom and offer up some of the city’s best workshops, and some of the best gifts for dad available. 

If you’re looking for birthday experiences to really spoil dad, but not try our welding workshops for beginners! One of our more heavy-duty Sydney workshops, this incredibly hands-on and interactive class offer a spark other gifts for dad just don’t contain! Your father will learn the basics of gas-less mig welding and joinery, and how to work with light metals for small home projects. 

This Sydney workshop is incredibly enjoyable but a little more intense than some of our other classes, so this is a perfect birthday experience for a dad who has a bit of building knowledge already under his toolbelt. If you’re chasing something heavy-duty but perhaps a little bit more creative, our woodworking classes in Sydney are also one of our great birthday experiences to get dad out of the house and onto the tools! 

Our eyes deteriorate as we get older and unfortunately, your dad’s no different. But nothing offers him the chance to embrace that by building and designing his own glasses! Nestled away in a workshop in Marrickville, eyewear designer Chris Savage offers the chance to create your own pair of sunglasses or prescription glasses in his four-hour course! One of the most fashionable things to do in Sydney, this is one of the few birthday experiences not offered by ClassBento anywhere else! 

Make dad’s birthday one he can wear and benefit from, particularly if he’s in need of a bit of fashion advice. Face it, some dads need some help, and as far as gifts for dad go, this workshop is a “spec”-tacular place to start. 

Birthday ideas for the dad who can cook

A dad who can cook? It’s 2020, and it’s definitely a thing now. If you’re chasing gifts for dad and he happens to be a bit of a foodie, we have cooking classes all over Sydney that are bound to have your father whipping up a frenzy and enjoying the flavours of a memorable birthday experience! 

Our range of Sydney workshops that can help you master the culinary arts is the most extensive in the country, but we’ve handpicked a few that are perfect as gifts for dad! BBQ School in Willoughby offer a variety of bbq cooking classes, but a true fan favourite amongst the dads is their Beer and BBQ cooking class! Over four courses, the bbq masters will show you how to master rubs, marinades and cooking techniques all while learning how to pair them with delicious Australian craft beer! 

If your dad is already a tong master, however, try and get him branching out with a Korean BBQ cooking class in Neutral Bay! Although still maintaining a focus on flame-grilled meat and vegetables, the subtle differences in cooking techniques and flavour profiles make this one of the more unique birthday experiences in Sydney and a fun out-of-the-box approach to gifts for dad.

If, however, you’re just looking for relaxing birthday party ideas, Salt Meats Cheese runs their famous flaming cheese wheel nights on Wednesdays and it is an all-out cheese-fest! This is definitely more an experience than a workshop, so get the family together and tuck into one of the cheesiest things to do in Sydney. 


Birthday ideas for the artsy father

Gifts for dad been a bit drab for the last few years? Put the socks back on the rack and say no to the tie pin, because birthday experiences should all be about giving something new! Whether your father’s day gift ideas and birthday experiences have missed a touch of flair, only you may know. But ClassBento has so many Sydney workshops that focus on expressing your artistic side that it can’t be ignored! 

Our paint and sip classes in Sydney may seem more geared towards a female clientele, but as party ideas for dads go, it’s a bit of a sleeper hit. Grab him a six-pack and get him painting with Sip N Strokes art classes! This may not be the first thing that comes to mind when shopping for gifts for dad, but it’s a lovely, stress-free and therapeutic outing and one of our best Sydney workshops for married couples!


With so many choices of birthday experiences in Sydney to pick from, your cup truly does runneth over when searching gifts for dad. Experience gifts are a great way to celebrate a birthday and offer long-lasting memories. Many of our Sydney workshops offer tailored packages and additional extras, so it’s always worth informing the workshop instructor if you’re celebrating a birthday ahead of time. So whether it’s 50th birthday ideas or you’re chasing a father’s day gift, our unique birthday party ideas in Sydney will have your Dad laughing off his age in no time.
