On Friday, children at Aurora invited their fathers in to the center for a delicious Father’s Day tea. The delicious treats they enjoyed included blue berry muffins, iced biscuits and fresh fruit. After the tea, the children gave their fathers handmade gifts they had been working on and showed their loved ones around their Studio.

This weekend, carry forward your Father’s Day celebrations with these exciting events happening around Melbourne.

Dad Joke Trail at the Melbourne Zoo

When does a joke become a dad joke? When the punch line becomes apparent.

For Father’s Day, the Melbourne Zoo has created a Dad Joke Map which has a collection of questions with animal themed joke answers that will take you and your family around the zoo. Your little ones can ask the jokes, guess the answers or simply enjoy all the laughter!
