If there’s one special person in your life who deserves a huge thank you treat, it’s your mum, right? This Mother's Day, go one step beyond a shop-bought gift and a card and treat her to a luxury day out and a decadent lunch at one of Sydney’s best establishments.

These Mother's Day packages have been thoughtfully crafted for the most special lady in your life. They are the places we’d happily take our mums (and let’s not forget the aunties, big sisters, step-mums and grandmothers who’ve been there for you, too) on Mother’s Day—or any day!

Scroll on for our favourite Mum-worthy spots to celebrate this Sunday.

Lunch is $99 for three courses of deliciousness that also includes a glass of Veuve Ambal sparkling wine on arrival—plus, kids can dine too for $49 per child. And each mum who dines at Q Dining on Mother’s Day will receive a special gift—a beautiful bottle of L’Occitane perfume.
