This Father’s Day 2021, a lot of Australians celebrations are going to look a little different. The lunches, the backyard cricket game, the sizzling barbecue, the cuddles and the gift-giving will all need to be postponed.
Luckily, there’s still some of us who are able to celebrate with their dads or father figures. But, for those who can’t see their dad this Father’s Day, we’ve put together a quick and easy guide to five virtual things to do at home this Father’s Day 2021.
