How will you be spoiling your Mum this May ?
The beautiful scenery and waters of the Sunshine Coast provide a spectacular backdrop to give mum an unforgettable experience this Mother's Day. We have collated a range of ideas to say thanks and let her know just how amazing she is.
Indulge in High Tea
If you’re looking for a foolproof venue to celebrate your mama this year, Aimee Provence is the answer with a decadent offering of a Mother’s Day high tea, complete with beautiful views. Enjoy all the mouth-watering delicacies, including cloud-like scones with jam and clotted cream, French macarons, chicken Waldorf finger sandwiches and a glass of sparkling wine to salute how special she is.
There are few things in life more relaxing than lying on a massage table in tranquil surroundings as you enjoy a luxury spa treatment, especially for a weary Mum. Perhaps a soothing hot stone treatment or ying yang massage is mum’s cup of tea. Maybe she would prefer a facial, manicure or pedicure? A spa voucher from Spicers has all bases covered and is sure to impress.
Celebrate mum with lunch at Mooloolaba’s Cellar Door on First, where the team are opening especially for Mother’s Day. The menu, turning locally sourced produce into fragrantly fresh and contemporary flavours, is available in a la carte or degustation stylings.
For the seafood crazy Mum, dive into a selection of whole fresh Barramundi, fresh Tasmanian Salmon, succulent crab, Moreton Bay bugs, oysters, fresh Mooloolaba prawns and smoked salmon alongside signature salads, seasonal hot dishes and desserts. Especially for Mother’s Day, mum also receives a complimentary glass of Australian sparkling on arrival.
Spoil mum with a waterfront lunch at Noosa Boathouse on the Sunshine Coast this Mother’s Day. She’ll have the choice of a four-course family feast, featuring the chef’s best dishes served help-yourself style, or go all out with a three-tiered seafood tower and chocolate dessert plate.

If your mum is the type who loves to get out and about why not join her for a morning of fitness and inspiration at the Mother’s Day Classic. The Mother’s Day Classic is a community-inspired fun run and walk, raising funds and awareness for breast cancer research. You can choose from a 4km walk and a 4km or 8km run.
Get Out in Nature
The Sunshine Coast is lucky to have beaches, waterways, waterfalls and hinterland hikes from end to end so why not spend some time with mum out enjoying nature’s gift? Take a leisurely stroll around the Noosa National Park and see if you can spot a Koala. Explore the wonders of the Glass House Mountains with a walk around the base of Mt Tibrogargan. Soak up some vitamin D with a beach boardwalk stroll at Coolum, meander along the Esplanade at Mooloolaba or take in the Pumicestone Passage walking from Golden Beach to Kings Beach in Caloundra.
