Best Experiences for Mothers Day

No doubt you’re sick of the same old gift guides, so here’s something with a difference. Whether it’s for you or your mother, treat Mum with an experience that she won’t expect or forget.


  1. High Tea with a Difference

You may think this sounds rather characteristic of Mother’s Day, but enjoy a high tea with a twist this year – at the zoo. The Melbourne Zoo is serving a scrumptious array of savoury and sweet delights in their Rainforest room, while the Taronga Zoo is treating visitors to a harbour cruise before strolling amongst the animals.



  1. Hot Air Balloon Ride

Mum won’t mind forgoing a sleep in when she sees the sunrise from your own hot air balloon. Balloon tours run out of most major cities and can include tempting extra treats such as a champagne breakfast or lunch at a winery upon landing.



  1. Take a Dance Class

Pick up a few new moves and more than likely have a bit of a laugh learning a new style of dance. With schools offering casual classes in such a diverse range of styles, you will be sure to find one that appeals to your level of experience. The slightly more adventurous might like to try belly dancing or fan dancing. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you may want to test out your circus skills with an aerial trapeze class.



  1. Hire a Vintage Car

Make mum feel like a Hollywood starlet and take her out for the day in a vintage convertible. Choose a scenic drive, such as the Great Ocean Road in Victoria or Mt Glorious Road in Queensland, and cruise with the top down. Complete the day with a luxe destination such as a winery or day spa.



  1. Paddle Board Yoga

This new fitness craze combines paddle boarding with gentle yoga poses for an amazing workout and overall energizing experience. Paddle out for a tranquil morning session and lose yourself in guided meditation surrounded by calm waters and stunning scenery.



  1. Hire a Personal Shopper

For a perfect shopping trip with a five-star twist, hire your own personal shopper for a little fashion inspiration. Personal shoppers are a great tool to help explore new looks, refine your personal taste, show you a few tricks of the trade and introduce you to new boutiques. Major department stores and retailers such as David Jones offer personal shoppers, or you could try an agency such as The Style Agency.



  1. Horse Riding

Adventurous mums will love getting out in the wilderness and back to nature on a horse riding tour. Discover the perfect combination of riding, stunning scenery and delicious food and wine with horseback winery tours. Horse Back Winery Tours run out of the Mornington Peninsula and Eureka Blue Mountain Equestrian Centre in Megalong Valley offer cellar door tours.
