Spoil mum this Mother’s Day

Celebrate your mum, or that someone special with high tea, a long lunch or wild zoo adventure this Mother’s Day on Sunday 8 May.

High Tea and Spa Packages
You’ll win serious brownie points with an elegant High Tea at Joseph’s Dining at Lancemore Mansion Hotel. Overlooking the manicured gardens of Werribee Park, indulge in a lavish spread of sweet and savory delicacies including scrumptious scones and British Victoria Sponge Cake complemented with a glass of Mumm Marlborough Sparkling Wine. Bookings are essential. Call 03 9731 4130 or email dining.mansion@lancemore.com.au

In the heart of Werribee City Centre, you can spoil someone special on Mother's Day with a delicious High Tea at Rosana Bistro and Bar. Located on the 8th floor of Holiday Inn Werribee, sit back and take in the view while enjoying a beautiful selection of savory treats and sensational sweets as you sip on a glass of sparkling wine, from 2.30pm – 4.30pm ($65 per person). Bookings are essential. Call 03 8731 3000 to reserve your table.

Speaking of views, at The Refectory Parlour, you can pre-book a Heritage High Tea for two ($90) to enjoy picnic style out in the beautiful grounds of Werribee Park Mansion.

For further indulgence spoil mum with a treatment (or gift voucher) at L.M. Day Spa or Fifth Element Day Spa.

Family Fun
Create some special memories with the whole family at Werribee Open Range Zoo. Bookings are now open for gourmet Mother’s Day breakfast and lunch packages including zoo entry, food, activities for the kids and a small gift, from $35 to $95 per person. The zoo’s Deluxe Safari Adventure also makes for a great gift voucher.

Explore the stunning interiors of Werribee Park Mansion with a self-guided tour (entry $7.90 - $10.90) and if the weather’s fine, enjoy a lakeside picnic in the beautiful gardens, perhaps with a pre-booked picnic hamper from The Refectory Parlour, Wyndham Cache, The Little Deli Panini Bar or Meli’s 21 Deli.

For more family fun create your very own artwork together (and enjoy plenty of laughs) at the Social Artist, with a special family-friendly Mother’s Day – Australian Natives session or at Pinot & Picasso with a collaborative Mumsterpiece (18 years plus). You can even bring your own grazing platter to enjoy! Bookings are essential.

Lunch, Brunch and Everything in Between
Get together over coffee and brunch at Jock and Mack, Wolf on Watton, Notorious Espresso, The Social Sutra, Chatterbox Café and The Garden Feast or pick up some beautiful pastries at Avliya Balkan Cuisine & Dessert.

For that leisurely long lunch, try Casa Cantina, Teddy Picker, Tocca, 3030 Boulevard, The Park or Bridge Hotel Werribee (bookings recommended).

Raise a toast to mum at Corked Wine Bar! They’ll be hosting a Mother’s Day bottomless lunch with live music from Tanya George, a Grand Graze (for two) and two hours of unlimited pours of mimosas, sparkline wine and more! Tickets are $90 per person with two seatings available – bookings essential.

For wine-lovers, a voucher for Shadowfax Winery which includes the restaurant and cellar door also makes an excellent gift.
