Early spring in Manly Harbour Village is easily the most beautiful time of the year and the ideal location to celebrate and honour our Dads this Father’s Day.
To get the party started with this year’s celebrations, the Saturday morning Jan Powers Farmers Market is on, followed in the evening by Free Movies in the Park screening 3 Men and a Baby. Pack a picnic, bring a folding chair or blanket, sit back and enjoy this classic comedy with the family.
On Sunday morning the bustling Manly Creative Market will be in full swing with gifts galore, music, entertainment, food and a vibrant atmosphere that will delight and impress, nestled against the magnificent Manly Harbour. Stroll amongst the Moreton Bay fig trees and view all the wonderful trinkets and treasures on display.
Our local cafes and restaurants have prepared special Father’s Day menus with fresh, local produce that is guaranteed to tempt and cater to all tastes. Click on any of the following links to make a booking **WARNING – hunger may result**:

For the discerning chap who likes his homewares (and a bit of pampering), Frond Flowers have a great range of cards and giftware, and don’t forget the always friendly John and his team at Manly News & Casket for cards, gifts and scratchies. Down on the jetty at the Wynnum Manly Visitor and Information Centre there’s a good choice of gift options in store, book Dad on a sail aboard the Iceberg or try out one of their Akubra Hats – Dad’s love hats! For the fisherman, check out Muir Marine and, for the Dad who has everything, the Bluebottle Bar are hosting a ‘Beer Degustation Night” on 5 September, “A selection of craft beer from the Stockade Brewing Co., perfectly paired with 5 courses of delectable food”. Yum!
