When you're in a new city and have some time to yourselves, be it away from the kids, away from work or just free from everyday stresses, a good date night (or day) is the perfect way to celebrate! There are so many things to do in Perth that make great dates, from water-based activities to picnics, we have found something to suit any taste.
Picnic in Kings Park
Pack a picnic (or ask the peeps at Perth Picnic Dates to pack one for you) and head to Kings Park where you can enjoy the views over the city, Swan River and South Perth or take a stroll through the botanic gardens. If you want to add an extra romantic touch, from December to March there is an open-air cinema so you can snuggle up and settle in for an evening.
Go Star Gazing
For something a little different, take your special someone to the Perth Observatory, Australia's oldest continuously operating observatory. Located just out of the CBD, this is the perfect place to take a romantic look at the moon and the stars.
Insider Tip: For a gift that lasts forever, why not adopt a star for your partner? And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, it's the perfect gift for the partner who has everything.
Sunset Dining at Storehouse Subiaco
With knockout views and an inviting menu, Storehouse Subiaco is the perfect place to woo your love. The trendy rooftop restaurant and bar is just the spot for sundowners, and there are plenty of shared grazing dishes that are perfect for couples. This jewel in the crown of Vibe Hotel Subiaco Perth won a chef’s hat in the Australian Good Food Guide chef hat awards. Clink your glasses with fine bubbles from the extensive list of outstanding Western Australian wines.
Romance the Night Away
When in Perth, check into the upscale Vibe Hotel Subiaco Perth with unrivalled views over the city or be spoilt with gorgeous over-the-ocean sunsets at the Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough.
