Haven't made Father's Day plans? We've got you sorted!

Dad: How is the baby bird like its dad?
Me: How?
Dad: It’s a chirp off the old block.


We love a good Dad joke, and even if you don’t, we know you love a good Dad!

With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to get organised to treat the special guy in your life, and we’ve got some great suggestions right here.

Eat out

  • Grab a Burger and Beer special at the South Tamworth Bowling Club for just $15, with three burger specials to choose from. Plus, there’s a Jim Beam fridge up for grabs on the day!
  • Take Dad to India (without the expensive plane fare) at Priya Mahal Indian Restaurant, which is hosting a lunch buffet this Father’s Day for $25 per person.
  • The Pig & Tinder Box are showing Dad a good time with special menu items like pan fried cheeseburger dumplings with mustard and smoked tomato jam, five week dry aged Angus rump with fondant potatoes, horseradish cream, kale and beets and pizza with native pepper berry, crusted kangaroo, spinach, red onion, semi dried tomato & macadamia. And they’ll throw in a free schooner on arrival for Dad!
  • Treat Dad to a lunch or dinner combo at the Tudor Hotel which includes an entrée, 450g chargrilled T-Bone steak for just $40 per person, plus a schooner of House tap beer for Dads. Since it’s the weekend, they’ll also have their $5 weekend drink specials running from 2pm – 5pm.

  • It’s going to be a day of family fun at the Kootingal Country Fair with awesome entertainment from The Pitts Family Circus, plus the Woolomin Petting Zoo, putt-putt golf and jumping castles. If Dad likes cars, there’ll also be a classic car display courtesy of the Kootingal Motor Club.
  • See Mark Vincent, one of Australia’s most beloved tenors, hit the Capitol Theatre, Tamworth’s stage for an intimate evening of incredible music where he’ll be performing classics including Because You’re Mine, Be My Love and Nessun Dorma.

There’s tonnes of other stuff to do in the Tamworth region with Dad including museums to visit, nature experiences and parks, sporting activities and live music.
