Here are 6 of our favourite Valentine’s Day date ideas to do in Sydney – there’s something for everyone from the classic romantics, to the nature lovers, and even the competitive couples.
1.Valentine’s Dinner at the Boilerhouse
Celebrate love by the beach in one of Manly’s most romantic harbourside restaurants, The Boilerhouse at Q Station. Take in the beachfront views of Sydney Harbour while you dine on fresh and modern Australian cuisine, and of course because it’s valentines Day you can even sip on a free glass of sparkling! Our pick for dinner? The Vannella burrata with heirloom cherry tomato, black garlic and puffed nori. Bookings are essential, so make sure to reserve your table!
2.Catch a flick under the stars
Situated on Mrs Macquarie's Point against a backdrop spanning the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and city skyline, Sydney’s OpenAir Cinema is the perfect casual Valentine’s Day date. This Valentines Day they’ll be showing the classic Little Women – perfect if you want to win some brownie points with that special lady in your life, or just want a date night with the girls. Sit back and enjoy the sunset, the amazing cinema menu, and then watch the movie on a massive three storey high screen.
3.Get your putt putt on
Consider yourself a competitive couple? Get ready to flex those putt putt skills at Holey Moley. Forget the usual windmills and castles, putt your stuff through shark infested waters and pop culture references like The Simpsons couch and into the Nine Iron Throne itself. And of course, after you’ve shown your date your impressive skills you’ll need to treat them dinner – think stone baked pizzas, loaded hotdogs, and putt putt themed cocktails.
