September is just around the corner, and that means Father’s Day is fast approaching.

We know scrambling to buy something for dad the week before is a bit of an unspoken tradition. That’s why we’ve teamed up with one of Australia’s best independent publishers, Hardie Grant, to bring you a cheat sheet of the very best books to shop for dad this year from their brilliant line-up of lifestyle titles, cookbooks or clever guides — complete with a discount code that might inspire you to get your gift sorted early for once!

If your dad, grandpa, or favourite father figure is gearing up for a big trip, we’d recommend giving them a copy of ‘Explore Australia 2024’. The book is the 40th edition of the country’s ‘longest-running and most-trusted travel guide’, with handy maps, beautiful photos, and lists of things to do in every holiday region.

Hardie Grant are also known for publishing some brilliant cookbooks, and ‘COOK: The Only Book You Need in the Kitchen’ by acclaimed chef Karen Martini is a kitchen essential in our eyes. It features more than 1000 recipes inside, from old favourites to some contemporary ones that are just as enjoyable to cook, as they are to eat!

The ‘Halliday Wine Companion 2024’ is the ultimate guide to our country’s best wines and the wineries that make them, while ‘Pasta et Al’ will teach him how to make 60 different kinds of handmade pasta. Plus, ‘Fish Butchery’ by Josh Niland, ‘Sustain’ by Jo Barrett and ‘The Dinner Party’ by Martin Benn and Vicki Wild are other great titles for any foodie-loving guys.

We also recommend ‘This Old Van: Plan, Renovate and Style Your Own Vintage Caravan’, a great coffee table book filled with nostalgia and how-to tips for turning a retro van into a dreamy retreat!

‘Whether dad’s hankering for outdoor adventure, looking to lift that kitchen game up a few levels or just on the hunt for the next best bottle, there’s no better place to start than one of our books’ says publisher Simon Davis.
