Australia is one of the most amazing continents and countries on Earth. From numerous opportunities to adventurers and food lovers to amazing city exploration opportunities, Australia has something to offer to anyone. Luckily for so many couples out there, Australia is also filled with opportunities for romance. If you and your loved one are visiting this amazing country, you definitely can’t miss out on having a date night.
Regardless of what kind of couple you are, you’ll be able to find something extraordinary to do. This will be a date night for the books.
1. Just take a walk
You don’t have to go all out to have an unforgettable date if you’re already in a new place. Just taking a walk around an unfamiliar neighbourhood in a new city can be enough to make the day or night special. There are a lot of things you miss out on when you move around by car or public transport. Walking allows you to get to know the city much more intimately.
With good company and conversation, the city you’re exploring together will forever be known as “your” city and you’ll remember it much more fondly.
2. Amusement park it!
Australia knows that amusement parks are in no way just for kids. Queensland, and especially Gold Coast, is famous for its wide array of adrenaline-inducing amusement parks that any couple will enjoy. You can take a walk through Dreamworld and get on the best rides then pet some friendly kangaroos, or step into the world of your favourite cartoons and movies ant Movie World.
Sea World will allow you to see the most amazing sea animals, pet some rays, and provide an educational lesson on all the deep-sea creatures. Don’t miss the daily feedings or dolphin and sea lion shows, either. Finally, don’t forget your swimsuit! Wet’n’Wild is the pride and joy of Gold Coast, as the water park is basically the realization of all of your childhood dreams.
You and your partner will have one hell of a day just being kids again and immersing yourself in all the amusement park activities.
3. Treat yourself to some wine
Wine is a well-known love elixir that might just be the thing to bring you and your sweetheart closer. The right glass of wine can have you giggling and feeling a little flushed, make you enjoy the night even more, while also spreading an air of class and sophistication around it. Luckily for you, Australia has some of the best wines in the whole world. There’s more than one wine area in Australia, but perhaps the most famous and romantic one might be Hunter Valley.
What sets aside Australian wines from all the rest is that they’re a mix of the old and new times. Traditional wineries with French and Italian influences are met with the needs of the modern man to provide you with the most tasteful glass or bottle of wine you’ll ever try.
As well as wine tasting, you’ll also get to explore the wineries with your date. Walking along the endless rolls of green, breathing in the fresh air, soaking up the last rays of the sun, and holding your beloved by the hand- that’s the true recipe for happiness.
4. Go diving
If you and your date are adventurous, you’re in the right country. What better place to dive than on the Great Barrier Reef? Australia’s waters are clear and filled with colourful and amazing creatures you’ll meet nowhere else. Diving on the Reef is one hell of a date experience and will surely give you and your loved one something to talk about. This is great for couples who want to try something new or those who are looking for ways to freshen up their relationship.
If diving is a little extreme for you, but you’d still like to explore the water, you can always go snorkelling. Green Island, for example, is one of the most beautiful places in Australia to snorkel on. A branch of the Reef extends for miles, allowing you to see a whole other world together all the while staying close to the coast.
5. Give them flowers
Flowers are a classic romantic gesture that Aussies simply won’t let die out. No matter what year and century it is, giving your date flowers before or after the date is considered to be extremely romantic. Perhaps the most effective method is to leave the flowers for your date the morning after you go out. This makes the flowers a sweet end note to the whole evening and reassures your date that you had an amazing time.
With flower delivery in Perth, Sydney, or Melbourne, your date can wake up to a nice bouquet and start their day off beautifully. Make sure to include a card with a thoughtful message in it. If you haven’t already secured a second date, after this gesture, you surely will.
6. Go for coffee
This is an excellent date idea, especially if you’re going on one of your first dates. Even though you could get coffee on any continent and in any country, Australian coffee is much more special. If you don’t know it yet. Australia has one of the richest coffee cultures in the world. Instead of just going to big chain coffee shops, the country enjoys local specialties far more.
You and your date can find a quirky coffee shop you both like and enjoy your favourite coffee like you’ve never done before. The relaxed atmosphere will allow you to get to know each other without tension and those first-date jitters ruining the first impressions.
As you can see, Aussies are true romantics. Every opportunity and activity in Australia can be turned into the most romantic experience you’ll ever have. Nurturing a relationship is very important, and finding new ways to get close to each other on a whole different continent is always a step in the right direction. Who knows what new things Australia might reveal about your partner, just through the new shared experiences.
