IF you're a bit stuck for Mother's Day gift ideas, head to Australia Zoo on Sunday, May 14, and spoil your mum silly.

To celebrate Mother's Day, the Zoo is creating the ultimate fantasy for mums. The Aussie Thunder boys will be handing out free muffins and chocolates, while Prince Charming will be working his charm and handing out roses.

Singer, guitarist and didgeridoo-player Matt James will be serenading with tribal tunes all day, and the Gubbi Gubbi Aboriginal dancers will also perform. And all mums have a chance to get free massages.

Even the animals of Australia Zoo would like to meet your mum, in the Kiss-a-Critter competition.

If mum is brave enough to pucker up, she might be lucky enough to receive a kiss to remember from one of our tortoises, snakes, elephants or dingoes, and receive a special prize.

While mums relax, there are free rides, including a jumping castle, trampoline, teacup ride and ferris wheel. There will also be free face-painting and a colouring competition.

There will be some awesome major prizes up for grabs, including a 14,000-foot tandrm skydive with Sunshine Coast Skydiving, one night for two adults and two children including buffet breakfast at the Noosa Sheraton, two nights or two at the Narrows Escape, a double Gold Class movie pass, a pamper package, and some fantastic Crocodile Hunter prize packs. What a little beauty!
