Mother’s Day Ideas For Mums on the Sunshine Coast

Spoiling your mum on Mother’s Day isn’t difficult to do on the Sunshine Coast – there’s always no shortage of activities to indulge in! 2024 Mother’s Day Sunshine Coast is definitely a time to celebrate her!

What should I do for Mother’s Day Sunshine Coast?

Mother’s Day is a special time of year when we celebrate those beautiful women who have not only given us life but made sure we… you know… stay alive! They’ve wiped our noses, tied our shoes, dried our tears and shown us what it truly is to love and be loved in return. Awww.

If you’re on the Sunshine Coast, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to excellent Mother’s Day activities. Here are just a couple of the wonderful things you can take that special lady to this year.

Mother’s Day at Australia Zoo 2024

Enjoy a special Mother’s Day at Australia Zoo this year. If your mum is an animal lover this could be the perfect Mother’s Day Sunshine Coast destination for your family. In addition to the usual Australia Zoo fun, a special Mother’s Day Brunch will be held in Crikey’s Cafe. Plus, you can check out the Marvelous Mothers Animal Trail. There are also loads of fun activities running, including colouring a card for Mum. If you fancy a gourmet treat after your day at the zoo, you also might consider dropping in on the amazing new Warrior Restaurant and Bar inside the Crocodile Hunter Lodge.
