Give mum something to look forward to this Mother’s Day… adventure!

The perfect buy-now, use later gift

All mums are special, but no two mums are quite the same. Mother’s Day is almost here, so skip the usual, boring old gifts this year and give her a present she’ll really get excited about – an incredible adventure to look forward to at a later date.

For many people getting together this Mother’s Day will be tricky, so buying her something she can enjoy later is the ideal solution. Give an experience gift voucher and she can pick a time and date that suits her. And, if you like the sound of an experience yourself, double the fun and book for two.

As Australia’s leading adventure experience site Adrenaline has you covered for amazing last minute gifts, perfect for adventurous mums. With a huge range of thousands of Australia-wide experiences to choose from, you can treat her to a unique Mother’s Day gift without even needing to leave the house!


Most exciting Mother’s Day gift ever? We think so! Give mum the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of a tandem skydive from a height of up to 15,000ft. From the rush of freefall to the awesome views, this is something she’ll never forget. Adrenaline has skydive experiences from Australia’s leading suppliers, in a variety of locations, so finding one that suits your mum might be easier than you think. The question is, do you dare to join her?

V8 racing

V8 Supercars

Mum’s spent plenty of time driving you around over the years. Say thanks with a driving experience she can really let loose on. With pro instruction and real racetracks, it’s an awesome adrenaline rush. Her driving instructor will kit her out with all the gear needed and offer tips to take her cornering and handling to the next level.

Jet Boats

Zoom across the water and feel the power of these supercharged jet boats. These are sightseeing boat tours like no other, with heaps of twists, turns and manoeuvres thrown in along the way. They’re the perfect way to liven up mum’s day, and taking place in locations like Sydney Harbour, Cairns, Surfers Paradise and Sunshine Coast, there are some breathtaking sights to enjoy along the way. Hold on tight!

Hot air ballooning

Hot Air Balloons

Treat mum to the best views in Australia. Choose from Adrenaline’s range of hot air balloon rides in some of the most scenic locations across the nation, from Melbourne to the Hunter Valley. Sunrise hot air balloon rides are quite unlike anything else and a real bucket list favourite. The experience can be made even better with a gourmet breakfast to enjoy once you’re back on firm ground.

Horse Riding

Get in the saddle and get back to nature with a horse riding adventure at locations around the country. There are adventures for everyone, from guided trails suitable for absolute beginners to free range rides perfect for those with riding experience.

Take a look at the Adrenaline range and you’ll find everything from scenic trails in Glenworth Valley, near Sydney, to beach horse riding on the Mornington Peninsula.

Swimming with dolphins

Swimming with Dolphins

These magnificent creatures are an amazing sight. And there’s something really special about watching them play and go about their day in the wild. For an experience animal loving mums will never forget, why not take things to the next level and get in the water to swim with the dolphins? These animal encounters are always done with environmental awareness and safety in mind, so mum can relax and enjoy the moment.


Day cruises, sunset cruises, dinner cruises, whale watching cruises, tall ship sailing cruises. Take your pick! There’s no shortage of ways to treat mum to some quality time on some of Australia’s best waterways and coastlines, from Sydney Harbour to Rottnest Island.

There’s something special about being out on the water, and (with informative commentary typically provided) it’s a great way to get to know a place. Some even include food and drink and gorgeous scenery. Sounds like a good time to us!

Helicopter flight

Helicopter Rides

These sky-high adventures are an amazing way to see a place in a whole new way. Whether it’s looking down on famous sights in the big cities, or heading along the coast for incredible natural scenery, there’s plenty to see. It’s a great way to learn more about a place (whether you’re a local or a visitor) and tick off multiple sights in record time. Mum will be talking about this for a long time afterwards!
