With Mother’s Day fast approaching on Sunday, 12 May 2019, it’s time to start planning something special to let mum know just how wonderful she is! Here are a few ideas to get you started…
FOR MUMS WHO LOVE MARKETS AND MUNCHIES
Take mum for a stroll through the Fernvale Country Markets this Mother’s Day and let her explore stalls brimming with artisan wares and homemade goods. Afterwards, stop in for lunch at the Brisbane Valley Tavern between 1.30pm and 4.30pm where every mother is treated to a free glass of bubbly with their meal and goes into the draw for a Mother’s Day Pamper Pack. There’s also live music and face-painting available for the kids.
FOR MUMS WHO LOVE THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Spend quality time with mum this Mother’s Day in the beautiful country landscape of Somerset. Treat mum to a picnic at the scenic Cormorant Bay, Lake Wivenhoe. With shelters, barbeques, picnic tables, a large playground and 3.5km walking trail, it’s the perfect spot for a family Mother’s Day picnic.
FOR ARTY MUMS
Drop in at Glen Rock Gallery, housed in Esk Visitor Information Centre, and let mum explore the latest exhibition. There’s also arts and crafts for sale, so you can pick up a last-minute gift. Afterwards, treat mum to a delicious lunch at Nash Gallery Café in Esk. The heritage building is brimming with arts and crafts lovingly made by Somerset and independent artists. Alternatively, check out the special Mother’s Day menu at the Esk Grand Hotel.
FOR ADVENTUROUS MUMS
Take to the skies with Skydive Ramblers at Toogoolawah and treat mum to an exhilarating sky dive to remember. Receive a $50 voucher for all tandem sky dives booked for Mother’s Day when you mention their advertisement in the newspaper. Afterwards, head to the Toogoolawah Hotel for a special Mother’s Day buffet lunch with a huge selection of delectable desserts, along with raffles and half price children’s meals.
