Father's Day 2022

If you're eager to help your dad get out and about for Father's Day in 2024, we have plenty of Sydney classes to explore your local neighbourhood. Whether Dad's riding solo, looking for some father-son time, or you've got the whole family tagging along, there are plenty of things to do in Sydney to make him feel special on his big day. BBQ School runs some of the best cooking classes in Sydney and have the best Father’s Day gift ideas for a dad who loves his barbie. Held at their cooking school at Willoughby or out in the great outdoors of Centennial Park, you can choose from a variety of BBQ cooking styles, techniques and flavours. Their American BBQ and smoking class is one of our most popular Sydney workshops, and one of the best gifts for dad, particularly if he loves BBQ meat. Not only will there be a few complimentary beers, but your dad will also learn how to make a three-course American BBQ feast that he’ll get to enjoy at the end of the class. No to mention, being out in Centennial Park, he’ll get to break out the BBQ grill while enjoying the sunny weather in Sydney. 

Dad already a master meat-smoker? Get him cooking up a real fiesta with BBQ School’s South American BBQ class! As you and Dad arrive, you'll start off with some complimentary beer and nibbles to get you grooving. Then, you both will discover how to make a range of fish, meat and salad dishes that are all authentically South American, making this one of the tastiest Father’s Day gift ideas in Sydney.

If Dad's not much of a foodie, why not spoil him with a photography course? Get outside into that beautiful sun together and learn to take incredible photos like a pro. Whether he's the ultimate urbanite or loves exploring nature, there are plenty of photography classes in Sydney he's sure to love. Walk the streets of the city and study the stunning architectural features of the CBD, or alternatively, leave the hustle and bustle for the stunning Sydney coastline. Whichever workshop you choose, Dad is guaranteed to walk away with newfound skills and confidence to create perfect pictures with a click of a button.

For the DIY Dads, head to a blacksmithing class on Sydney's Northern Beaches and let him hand forge his own knife. Run by the experts at Nordic Edge, Dad will learn the basics of blacksmithing and finish up an insightful full day class with a practical knife to use at home. If you're looking for the best presents for Dad in Sydney, ignite his curiosity with a glassblowing workshop in Marrickville.
