G’DAY & WELCOME:
This site is designed to help meet a growing concern – Men’s Health in Australia. Its primary function is to present all men’s subject matter (for Australia) in one location as a men’s resource directory. The aim is NOT to replicate other sites BUT to “highlight” them in a directory to make it easier when searching for a particular men’s issue or reference. Other pages are included to encourage blokes into various men’s events and activities… read more about us here.

– Australian Father of the Year
Australian Father of the Year for 2018: 74 year old Businessman Dick Smith, a Dad of two daughters, both now adults: Hayley and Jenny.
“Fathers and father figures play such an important role in the family unit so I am very humbled to be awarded Australian Father of the Year,” he said. He attributes part of his role to success to his wife Philippa, they have been married 50 years. Mr Smith, previously an Australian of the Year in 1986, sold his iconic business, Dick Smith Electronics, in the 1980s to spend more time with his family. Since then he has set up the Dick Smith Foods Foundation which has donated more than $10 million to various charities. The Business has since been closed.

– State Awards for 2018:
YMCA Victoria in association with the Father’s Day Council of Victoria has announced 49-year-old Melbourne man Sandeep “Sunny” Jadhav as the Victorian Father of the Year for 2018.
Sunny, a man who continues to go above and beyond for thousands of young people, always with a positive attitude that surrounds his passion in mentoring the next generation of Australia’s doctors, surgeons, pilots and engineers. Sunny was nominated by his two teenage daughters, 13-year-old Sachi and 16-year-old Khushi… saying “Our dad always says ‘think outside the box and if you cannot think outside the box then you should make the box bigger.’ Our dad is a real life superhero”.
Born in Nagpur, India immigrating to Australia in 1996 and prior to living in Sydney has lived in Melbourne for over 10 years.
Sunny’s motivation to help and give back to the community goes beyond his home and workplace. His wife Kiran says it is difficult to go to the local shopping centre in Yallambie without stopping every five minutes because someone wants to ask him something.

Darin Browne, 55, from Nambour, 2018 Queensland Father of the Year.
Darin, a behavioural optometrist who specialises in kids with learning disabilities, has three daughters and a granddaughter and has spent the last 25 years as a foster parent of “the unfosterable kids”. His three daughters, Tara, Kira and Kristy, nominated their father for the award.
“He’s always been loving and supportive, always been there to pick you up when you’ve fallen down, give words of wisdom and a hug when needed,” Tara Browne said.
