Whether your dad is a sports fanatic, a tech-nerd or even a bit of a foodie, we’re sure that he deserves something extra special this Father’s Day, Sunday 4 September. If you’re not sure where to go or what to buy for him on his special day, we’ve enlisted the help of the Canberra Outlet Centre to give us the low-down on the best buys and where to get them this Father’s Day.

For the sporty dad…

Every cool dad needs a pair of Converse

Is your dad just a little too cool for the stereotypical ‘dad shoes’? If so, then why not splurge on a pair of classic Chuck Taylor’s at the Converse store at Canberra Outlet Centre? With a range of colours, designs and sizes we’re sure that there is a pair in store for dad this Father’s Day.


Get him ready for the beach at Quicksilver

With the warmer months just around the corner, dads all over town are set to migrate to the surf. Get him ready to hit the beach with a wetsuit and surf gear from the Quicksilver outlet store.


For the foodie…

All the kitchen equipment he needs from Harris Scarfe

If dad’s the one who cooks at home – or you think he needs a subtle hint – then you can’t walk past the amazing range of cookware available at the new Harris Scarfe store at the Canberra Outlet Centre. Pick up a quality set of knives, some Scanpan pots or the perfect BBQ set for the warmer months ahead.


Feed his sweet tooth with a treat from Lindt

The Canberra Outlet Centre just got a little more indulgent with the addition of its very own Lindt retail store. Just in time for Father’s Day, the Lindt store has a number of ready-made gifts including some delectable chocolate golf balls for just $10.


For the corporate gent…

Suit up with business apparel from Van Heusen

If your dad is more of a corporate gent then why not treat him to some new business apparel. At the Van Heusen outlet store, you can pick up a full suit from just $249. If that’s a little too rich for your blood then have a look at its great range of shirts and ties to spice up dad’s wardrobe.


Spoilt for choice with gift packs at Trade Secret

From soap on a rope to the richest of hair pomade and a colourful range of socks and jocks, Trade Secret has everything and anything to satisfy a corporate dad this Father’s Day. The store boasts a wide range of gift packs including shaving packs and sleepwear gifts, so you will be spoilt for choice when you drop in to find something for dad.


For the tech-nerd…

A sound system from Bose

Help dad get the most out of his favourite playlist with a great set of speakers from Bose. If dad is more of a movie man or gets a thrill out of having the very best tech on hand, splurge on a custom home theatre or wireless music system. And if dad has horrible taste in music…maybe get him a set of headphones instead.


Film on the go with a GoPro from JB Hi-Fi

For the adventurous tech dad, a GoPro from JB Hi-Fi makes the perfect gift. With devices starting at around the $300 mark and a range of accessories on offer as well, if your dad wants a new one or needs a new attachment to help him film on-the-go, JB Hi-Fi has got you sorted. My personal favourite is the GoPro dog harness – the perfect way to keep man’s best friend in on all the action!


As an added bonus, if you spend over $40 at the Canberra Outlet Centre and sign up to be a VIP member ahead of Father’s Day, you can go in the draw to win a 55-inch curved Samsung television and an Xbox One. What more could dad want?
