How will you spoil Mum this Mother’s Day?
Whether is breakfast, lunch, dinner or an all out pampering session, Mum will feel special, loved and relaxed in The Village. The options are many and varied.
Casey and her team at Frond Flowers can create a magical arrangement (not to mention their lovely range of giftware), be sure to call ahead to secure your blooms. Ebb+Flow Boutique Studio has a stunning range of gifts for Mum, call in and take a look. Over the road in the Manly 7 Day Markets The Mad Hatters Book Shop has a great range of reading materials and is a really fun place to visit. What about a holiday? Somewhere exotic? Trendell & Turner Travel Associates and The Manly Travel Shop are the travel specialists that can help you organise that relaxing trip away somewhere. Down on The Esplanade Apothecary Botanica has an amazing array of the magical and mystical, natural skincare, essential oils and herbs and beautiful jewellery. Stroll out on the William Gunn Jetty and see the team at the Wynnum Manly Tourism & Visitor Information Centre and Moreton Bay Discovery Centre. There is some fabulous new stock in store that Mum would love or maybe consider booking a tour? A trip by boat to one of the islands perhaps with Moreton Island Adventures or a blissful sail with the crew at Second Wind Sailing who have a Mother’s Day Sail special. And if you’re still looking for gifts on the day the Manly Creative Market is on as usual in Little Bayside Park.
For the Mum that really needs to relax and be pampered Endota Spa Manly has a great range of treatment packages available. Spawood Traditional Thai Massage are offering a Mother’s Day Special 1 hour Traditional Thai or Oil Massage on the day (13 May) for just $60.00. They expect to be busy so bookings are recommended. Or maybe a treatment and a new look care of Cambridge Hair Collective.
If Mum would prefer a sleep in, why not slip up to Golden Crust Bakery for some of their freshly baked goods or Le Bistro for a little magic with their decadent range of French pastries. There are so many wonderful restaurants and cafes in The Village but be sure to book to avoid disappointment – it gets busy! Breakfast and brunch are very popular down by the Bay, if you’re eating out, lock in your reservation early. The Manly Deck Bar & Restaurant is hosting a delicious Mother’s Day Seafood Buffet Lunch; the Moreton Bay Trailer Boat Club will “Treat your Mum to the best view on the Bay” with their Bistro Menu options for Breakfast or Lunch; The Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron is hosting a breakfast buffet or an a la carte lunch; Shucks Bar is ‘Celebrating your Mummy with BRUNCH and BOTTOMLESS MIMOSAS’; The Manly Hotel is hosting Mothers Day with Buffet Breakfast, prizes for Mum, good company, live music, great food specials & more; The Manly Kitchen has some mouth-watering specials for Mother’s Day, including ‘Cinnamon French toast croissant with maple, coffee anglasie, vanilla cream’; and The Fish Cafe want to ‘Look after your Mumma this Mother’s Day, bring her down to the beautiful Bayside and spoil her rotten’; The Tide Wine Bar has a great menu: breakfast, brunch, tapas plus a wicked range of cakes and sweets, then from 3pm Smooth Sunday Sounds with Peter Cupples. Alternatively maybe Mum would just like to kick back at home surrounded by her nearest and dearest, take a look at the delicious fresh meat at The Local Butcher & cook a BBQ. She’ll love you for it!
The weather is perfect now for a picnic by the water. There are so many beautiful spots to throw down the rug and lay out some of Mum’s favourite drinks and nibbles. Watching the activity in the harbour and out to sea is guaranteed to relax. Grab a bottle of Mum’s favourite tipple from the Thirsty Camel and pick up some delicious gourmet delights from the Deli Counter at IGA Manly Village (PS. they also have great flowers!).
There is entertainment at every turn this year in The Village. All of the wonderful ways you can enjoy Mother’s Day this year will be against the backdrop of Mother’s Day in the Park which includes 7 hours of nonstop, top quality entertainment from 8.30 am to 3.30pm, located in the midst of the bustling Manly Creative Markets. Kick back, relax and live large in The Village.
Manly Harbour Village wishes all Mums and carers the very best Mother’s Day and hope that you have a chance to put your feet up and enjoy this special day.
