Celebrating Father’s Day on the 1st of September at the Walkabout Creek in The Gap can be pretty special and remarkable. Your dad will love nothing more than to have a relaxing meal with the whole family amidst the lush surrounds of the D’Aguilar National Park. 

Apart from enjoying the food with family members, however, a Father’s Day celebration at the Walkabout Creek can be filled with heaps of outdoor activities focused on dad. You can go cycling, swimming, paddling and exploring, or simply play games on the grounds before or after you have your meals.
