“Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother.”

Mother’s Day is coming up on Sunday 9th May, and Manly Harbour Village is the perfect spot to spend some quality time by the scenic Moreton Bay!

The friendly team at Bella Botiqo have a great new range of brands in-store to choose from, plus gift vouchers available. Or why not delight Mum’s tastebuds at Shucks Bar, offering a Mother’s Day Sunday lunch set menu for just $89 per person – including a glass of prosecco on arrival, shared cold seafood platter, main and dessert. Two seatings are available, and bookings can be made via If you prefer, enjoy a picnic in the park and pick up a take-away tote filled with gourmet house-made edible goodies, plus a special gift for Mum inside.

However, May is not all about Mother’s Day, and many of us can’t be with our mums. This month is the perfect time to remind all of our loved ones and caregivers how much they mean to us! And it doesn’t have to break the bank.

Hand-make a gift from the heart – why not fill a jar with reasons why you think someone is wonderful, and surprise them with this thoughtful gesture? Take a walk along the Esplanade, ask about their life, and see the world through their eyes. Make a meal together and enjoy company, conversation, and connection.

Manly Harbour Village hosts a variety of free community events each month, including Movies in the Park on the first Saturday of the month (May’s scheduled movie is The Lion King), Manly Creative Markets every Sunday, and the Jan Powers Farmers Market on the first and third Saturday of the month.
