Father’s Day falls on the 2nd of September this year and is a time to show our Dads how much we love and respect them, despite their terrible Dad jokes. While Mums are often the go-to parent, we can all admit that our Dads come through when it counts. They are our best friend, our handy man, our advisor, our teacher and our biggest support. In light of Father’s Day let’s take a moment to honour the best Dads in recent history.


Scotty Cam

Scotty Cam is an Australian TV personality famous for the hit renovation show ‘The Block’. Although his kids are heading into adulthood, he is the embodiment of a great Aussie Dad. He has a caring, understanding side, can teach them a thing or two, is a handy man, and ultimately wants the best for them.
