    Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate all the mums out there, which might include you! Here are some ideas to honour the special mum in your life in Sydney.

    Start your morning with a special Mother’s Day brekky at a unique spot. This might seem random, but yet memorable… why not head to ‘Catmosphere, Sydney’s original cat cafe in Surry Hills? This cafe is 100% dedicated to supporting rescue cats and kittens, offering you the chance to dine with some furry friends to kick off your day.

    After your coffee and cat cuddles, head to the White Rabbit Gallery in Sydney’s CBD for some artful inspiration. This gallery holds one of the most significant collections of contemporary Chinese art globally, showcasing works from the 21st century. Don’t miss out on the library stocked with books about contemporary Chinese art and the small tea house serving Chinese tea and dumplings.

    Once you’ve indulged in a morning of feline company, artistic wonders, and perhaps a dumpling or two, treat yourself to a relaxation session. Sydney is great for pampering! The Langham Sydney’s Chuan Spa, where ancient Chinese healing techniques blend with modern practices for a truly rejuvenating experience.

    Continue the indulgence with a leisurely stroll through one of Sydney’s parks or gardens. Centennial Parklands is always a goody, perhaps a picnic or bike ride, And if the weather is dreary, change plans and head to the QVB for some retail therapy. 

    As the day winds down, treat your taste buds to a dinner at one of Sydney’s acclaimed restaurants like Quay. Indulge in Chef Peter Gilmore’s innovative dishes showcasing the finest Australian ingredients, ensuring a culinary journey to remember.

    I hope these ideas serve as a little bit of inspiration for the fathers out there needing to get planning, or the mothers out there who get the luxury of choosing what their day will become… Motherhood is challenging, and while we should celebrate every day, we all know that the mundane stresses of everyday life can get in the way, this is really a day that we can force ourselves to sit back and be present, and reflect on this special ‘Mother’ title we or someone you love has been lucky enough to have.
