As Mother's Day approaches, it's essential to recognize the women in our lives who deserve celebration every day of the year. The fourth Sunday of Lent is exclusively dedicated to acknowledging just how wonderful and special they truly are.

If you're still unsure about what to gift your mother or a mother-like figure this Mother's Day, worry not! Rathwood has a fantastic selection of gifts and activities to ensure your Mother's Day is truly special.

Plant Something Together

There's nothing more precious for a mother than spending quality time with her children. Instead of opting for a traditional bouquet of flowers, consider the joy of planting them together with your mom. Visit our garden centre, choose the blooms she adores, gather pots, soil, garden tools, and any other essentials, and you're all set. As the flowers bloom, your mother will be fondly reminded of the special day you spent planting them together.

Afternoon Tea

Treat your mom to a moment of relaxation this Mother's Day with a delightful tea session accompanied by scrumptious snacks. Ring in and reserve a spot for afternoon tea at our MerryTree Restaurant, and let her experience tranquillity while being pampered by our attentive staff.

Go on a Nature Walk

If the weather is pleasant, why not take a stroll in the fresh air through our beautiful woodland forest walk? It's a wonderful way to enjoy some quality time with your mother while also incorporating your daily exercise routine. Also, keep an eye out for deer and geese during your walks.

Set up a Picnic

Following a delightful nature walk, or simply to soak up the sun on a nice day, why not indulge in a delightful picnic at our outdoor benches near the forest walk? Pack a basket with your mother's favourite foods and snacks, and relish each other's company while savouring delicious treats.


This Mother's Day, treat your mom to a well-deserved break from the kitchen. Bring her to our Merrytree restaurant for a delightful dinner experience. Allow your mother to savour delicious dishes, accompanied by a complimentary glass of bubbly, all while enjoying the soothing jazz tunes of Adam Nolan starting at 2 pm. Secure your spot at our restaurant by booking a table online through OpenTable. Give your mom the special celebration she deserves!


Cook a Meal

If your mom prefers homemade meals, consider trying out a new recipe. Visit our store and choose the perfect cookbook featuring meals the whole family will enjoy. You could even pick up a dessert book to make Mother’s Day even sweeter.

Woodland Train

For a richer experience with nature, consider taking a ride on our woodland trains that guide you through our enchanting forest. Immerse yourself in the serene surroundings as you visit the geese and greet the numerous deer along the way.
