Mum’s the word right now and no, we’re not about to divulge juicy goss. We mean actual mum (aka your maker) coz Mother’s Day is Sunday 8th May. If you’re scratching your head for ideas to make her feel extra special, you’ve come to the right place. We know a GC fave with celebratory offers of grand proportions. Sons and daughters, check out The Star Gold Coast’s memorable meals and priceless pampering options to give mum a day to remember.

From 12pm – 3pm on Mother’s Day, treat mama bear to an indulgent 3-course shared Italian lunch and if this doesn’t win you serious ‘kid of the year’ points, the 2-hour beverage package will. For $130 per person (with small folk under 12 ordering from the kid’s menu), have a go of this for a spread. There’s delicious Antipasti with wagyu bresaola, Caprese salami, San Daniele prosciutto, house made pesto, olives, mozzarella and lemon scented goat’s curd. Also on the entree agenda is Wood Fired Queensland Prawns with cannellini bean vellutata, garlic butter and lemon, and Focaccia Romano (oven roasted flatbread and olive tapenade).

Then it’s time for the main event, with Darling Downs Grain Fed Angus Rib Fillet, charred cippolini onion, peperonata and arugula. Plus you’ll share Seafood Risotto filled with Queensland King prawns, red snapper, calamari, Kinkawooka mussels and pipis, and Broccolini and Cavelonero served with chilli, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Top it all off with dessert, Crostata di Limone featuring citrus tart, crème fraiche gelati, caramelised fig and we reckon you’ll have one happy matriarch. But wait, we haven’t mentioned the real main event (the drinks – obvs) and the line-up is lit with NV Domaine Chandon Brut, Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc, Head ‘Barossa’ Shiraz plus a variety of local and tap beers. Oh and soft drinks but let’s be honest, she doesn’t deserve to be the designated driver on Mother’s Day. Get booking – limited tickets for this spesh event!

Nothing says fancy like a lunch or dinner here, and the Mother’s Day specials are text-book decadence.

Specials include the Grande Fruits De Mer Seafood Platter with Moreton Bay bugs, Clarence River prawns, natural oysters, smoked mussels, Hervey Bay scallops and yellowfin tuna ($300). And why not top things off with a Strawberry Basque Cheesecake which serves four and is with fresh strawberries and lime mousse ($30). Mmm mmm.

Garden Kitchen & Bar
All mums will enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling Chandon wine (cheers!) when they order The Garden Kitchen & Bar’s Cold Seafood Platter ($120). Or, score two complimentary glasses of Chandon (double cheers) when you purchase the Indulgent Seafood Platter ($180). Available for lunch or dinner…or both even! *winks*

Nothing says I love you like giving mum the world. And a superior quality Japanese feast from Kiyomi comes pretty close. Mum will love her complimentary glass of Chandon Rosé when a show-stopping Kiyomi signature set menu is ordered (dinner only).

Uncle Su
Mother’s Day is for family and everyone’s fave uncle is inviting you for lunch or dinner to enjoy a traditional a-la-carte menu or banquet, with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine for all mums. It’s about time you take mum on that international (flavours) trip!

Azure Spa & Fitness
This one goes beyond Mother’s Day and has more of a ‘Mother’s Month’ vibe. Between 1st and 31st of May, spoil mum with an indulgent spa treatment. She’ll go weak at the knees for the Absolute Renewal Ritual ($280), with an energy restoring massage and customised Skinovage facial, for an immediately radiant complexion. Find us a mum who wouldn’t want this (spoiler alert – you won’t).

Where: The Star Gold Coast, Casino Drive, Broadbeach
When: Mother’s Day, Sunday 8th May. Azure Spa & Fitness treatment available throughout the month of May.
