Your mum brought you into this world, it seems only fair that you might do something nice for her from time to time. Whether your mum is chilled out, a fitness fanatic or an adrenaline junkie, we’ve got some great ideas for you to start planning the perfect Mother’s Day. All you need now is the perfect gift, so good luck with that!

Family mum

Everyone of all ages is covered this Mother’s Day at the Australian Hotel & Brewery in Rouse Hill. A huge event is set for mum’s special day with lucky door prizes, live music, kids activities like face painting, colouring-in competitions, and a jumping castle (who doesn’t love a jumping castle, right?!)
Open for breakfast, lunch or dinner, enjoy some great food, including the Australian Brewery’s all-you-can-eat buffet brekkie, and a few drinks in honour of your awesome mum.

Adrenaline junkie mum

Does you mum prefer a bit more excitement? Treat her to a day of go-karting at Ultimate Karting Sydney and race her to the finish line for ultimate glory and eternal bragging rights. Head next door to the Juicy Goose café and enjoy a delicious Mother’s Day special three-course set menu lunch with kids’ meals also available. If you really want to show your mum how much she means to you, the team at the Juicy Goose can arrange for a bunch of flowers to be waiting for your mum at the table upon arrival. How good is that?!

Outdoorsy mum

If the quiet farm life is more your mother’s speed, then Belgenny Farm is the perfect spot to spend the day with the whole family. Wander around the picturesque grounds, check out the animal nursery and pony rides, take a look at the steam engine and blacksmiths at work, enjoy a whip cracking exhibition and live music, or get involved in the novelty family races and games. There are plenty of lunch options available too, with a gourmet buffet served in the Granary, take your pick amongst the country food stalls serving all your favourites including the ‘World of Ice-Cream’, or have a light afternoon snack with a fresh country Devonshire tea.

Fitness mum

In its 11th year running, the Mother’s Day Classic has been raising funds and awareness for breast cancer research with their annual fun run. With a 4km walk and run, a 7km walk or an 8km run- there are options for any level of fitness, so that you might have a fighting chance at keeping up with your mum. There are also spot-prize giveaways and a raffle, roving performers and a kids activity area, and once you’re done, nosh on some snacks and coffee from some of the food vendors set up around the Domain.

Cruise-y mum

Mum deserves to relax, so why not pamper her with a cruise around the harbour. While taking in the spectacular views aboard your Captain Cook Cruises ship, enjoy either a buffet breakfast, a seafood buffet lunch or a long lunch featuring a gourmet, three-course, a la carte contemporary Australian meal. For a little extra, you can reserve guaranteed window seating, as well as a bar package to truly spoil mum on her special day.
