Often a special outing on Mother's Day is the best way to get some quality time with Mum away and be able to treat her to a lovely experience. Whether you are up for a spot of culture or want to embrace your inner foodies, there are so many activities and places to visit together for a truly memorable day.
You simply can't beat a good meal at your Mum's favourite spot, take her out for Sunday brunch and have a low key catch up over eggs benedict and even a cheeky mimosa; cheers to Mum! Or perhaps a long lunch is in order, where you graze for hours, sharing plates and stories; there is no better feeling than losing track of time, wrapped up in some beautiful bonding time. Makesure to book ahead!
If you inherited the creative gene and share a love for art, why not explore some local galleries with Mum. Find a fun new exhibition to explore; if you are in Sydney, the Art Gallery of New South Wales has some incredible indigenous art as part of their permanent collection, and the Museum of Contemporary Art is currently showcasing some inspiring young Australian artists. Melbourne's National Gallery of Victoria always houses an eclectic mix of exciting art and design. The city options are endless, but there is also a vast range of local galleries all over the country. Do a little research on what's happening near you for an immersive and original outing!
A Spa Day is a quintessential Mother's Day outing, and it is pretty unbeatable; plus, you get to embrace the pampering alongside Mum, so it's a win-win! Why not pre-book a special treatment for your Mum to enjoy? A much-deserved massage or soothing facial is a thoughtful extra and often something our selfless Mums just don't do for themselves! Spend the day in comfy white robes, sipping herbal teas and indulging in some serious zen with your number one. In contrast, if your Mum is an outdoors lover, add some adventure to Mother's Day this year and book a Horseback riding lesson! Explore a shared scenic walk through stunning bush landscapes or forest trails for a soul-charging experience and unforgettable expedition.
