Father's Day is fast approaching and it can be a lot of pressure to think up a fun and exciting day to celebrate the special man in your life.

So we are here to help! Here is a list of events and ideas that are happening in Brisbane, to help you celebrate this Father's Day in 2018. Hopefully, there will be something here for everyone!

For the Adventurous Dad

1. Flying Trapeze Classes

Fly through the air with the greatest of ease with these flying trapeze classes. These lessons are suitable for all abilities and are sure to be fun as the whole family learns to swing and fly and even complete some tricks.

Cost: Weekend flights start from $99.

3. Story Bridge Adventure Climb

Cost: Starting from $119.

For the Music Loving Dad

The Wynnum Manly Jazz Festival is a free fun festival that is held on Father's Day on the Wynnum Manly foreshore. Listen to live jazz while enjoying the food and free activities for the kids.

Location: 309 Herston Road, Herston
Cost: Prices vary according to activity.

For the Foodie Dad

1. Boaters and Beers Festival

The 4th Annual Father's Day Boaters and Beers Celebration is back at Newstead House. This free event has jazz and food trucks in the park. And of course, icy cold beer.

Location: Newstead Park, Cnr Breakfast Creek Road and Newstead Ave
Cost: FREE Entry

2. American Smoked BBQ Lunch

An American Smoked BBQ Lunch is my pick. Nothing is better to me than pulled pork and ribs. So if you think that the man in your life will think the same, then check out the BBQ lunch by the bay at Waters Edge Scarborough.

Fun Tours that are a bit out of the box

A craft beer walking tour is three hours of learning about the art of brewing and sipping on some tasty drinks, as Dad visits three pubs on Caxton Street. Learning while drinking.

Location: Caxton Street, Brisbane

2. Kangaroo Segway Tours

I always thought that Segways look a little silly but also so much fun! Father's Day is a good chance to give it a go. These tours are supposed to be the best and is a totally family-friendly affair.

Cost: Starting from $99
