Forget the standard dinner reservation this Valentine’s Day and spoil your special someone with a fun day out that they won’t forget. We’ve got some unusual date ideas across the country, and if all else fails, book a hotel room for the night. We can help you out with that.
Sydney: Harbour BridgeClimb
If you’ve had the BridgeClimb on your to-do list for years, it’s time to get it done. Just imagine climbing 440 ft above sea level and being greeted with a stunning sunset. Oh so romantic! BridgeClimb has special romance packages so you can pop the question or even tie the knot at the top.
For a Valentine’s Day to remember, take your love to Maniax Axe Throwing in St Peters. This date night combines skill and a lot of laughter. It’s the ultimate ice breaker.
If arcades, bowling and dodgem cars are your thing, then you’ve come to the right place! Get ready to show your date your competitive side, in the nicest way possible.
Seaplane and Private Picnic
What could be more romantic than hopping aboard a seaplane and being taken to a private beach for a romantic picnic? Well, this is your chance. Get in quick! Spots for Valentine’s Day are filling up fast.
Melbourne: Holey Moley
If you’re a bit of a show off, there’s no other option than to take your date to Holey Moley this Valentine’s Day. Show her your moves and have a good laugh on this perfect date night. It’ll be the craziest round of mini golf you’ve ever played.
A Romantic Picnic
Weather permitting, a simple picnic for two is the perfect Valentine’s Day date a girl could ask for. Pack a basket with a selection of cheeses and a bottle of champers and you’ve got the ultimate date. Some of our favourite spots are the Royal Botanic Gardens and Carlton Gardens.
The atmosphere might be frosty but hopefully the relationship isn’t as you and your date snuggle up at Melbourne IceBar. It may be the height of summer, but inside the city’s coolest bar it’s minus 10-degrees. You’ll be given a jacket and ugg boots if needed. Cool off with a glass of bubbles or an ice cold beer.
A Spa Day
If total body relaxation is your thing (let’s be honest, isn’t it for everyone?), then you need to take your date for a couple’s spa date. It’s the perfect situation to truly get to know someone, while you’re lathered head to toe in warm mud.
Brisbane: Nether World Arcade
If you and your Valentine are into arcade games, you can’t look past Nether World Arcade for the ultimate date night. Get ready to fight demons with your partner in one hand, and an ice cold beer in the other.
Couples who get massages together, stay together. For the ultimate relaxation with your partner, enjoy a rejuvenating massage at Kailo, the in-house spa at The Calile Hotel. It’s a sanctuary of peace and serenity in Brisbane’s most stylish hotel.
For a true test of your relationship, take your date to Escape Hunt Brisbane. Put your heads together and figure out a way to escape before the time ends. By the end of the night, you’ll know whether or not they’re a keeper.
