Looking for things to do with your partner for your next date night? No matter how long you’ve been together, there are times you run out of ideas. And sometimes the regular dinners or movie nights aren’t enough to spark up the flame. So what does it take to make your date night special?
Go for a Harbour cruise
Though it might sound like a cliche, many Sydneysiders often overlook the experiences a cruise offers. Picking the right cruise will be one of the most extraordinary experiences you can have. With the exquisite views of the harbour and other iconic landmarks like the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, and freshly prepared food on board, Sydney Harbour Day Cruise can be the ideal date spot.
Take a dinner cruise on Sydney Harbour to see the harbour illuminated at night and brighten up your date. To spice things up, go for a paddlewheeler dinner cruise that comes with a cabaret.
Walk along the Coogee Beach
Located on Sydney’s famous coastal walkway stretching from Bondi Beach to Maroubra Beach, Coogee Beach is a family-friendly beach with a promenade perfect for swimming. It’s the perfect spot to spend a breezy summer day. Go for a fun, relaxing beach date where you can spend quality time with your partner
Watch movies underneath the stars
Movies are fun. But it’s more exciting when you get to watch the movies under the stars and in the cool breeze of the night. During the months of summer, there are a few outdoor cinemas that pop up where people can enjoy either the latest blockbusters or any world classics under a moonlit sky. It might not be as private as an indoor cinema, but it’s a really fun experience you can give a go.
Explore Observatory Hill
The Observatory is one of the amazing places to hang out. Occupying a heritage listed sandstone museum and set in a historically significant stargazing site at Millers Point, the Observatory houses Australia’s most accessible telescope domes.
Fly above the clouds in luxury
See Sydney in a whole new light with your loved one on a thrilling chopper ride at the Helicopter Flight Tour in Sydney Harbour. It’s definitely an experience you should not miss, especially if you’re a Sydneysider. From the luxury of a helicopter, take in the Sydney Opera House, Taronga Zoo, Bondi Beach, and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Watch movies the old school way
The Golden Age Cinema & Bar in Surry Hills is a favourite among cinephiles in Sydney and is tucked away beneath the historic Paramount House building. Due to its charming art deco and cosy underground vibes, it also makes for a fantastic date location. With classics like Roman Holiday and Before Sunrise, you can’t really go wrong with the Golden Age of Cinema.
Though going to the movies is not the ideal way to get to know someone, it does provide a stress-free evening and is an economical date idea.
Have some quiet time together
An art gallery or a museum date is an absolute revelation. As these spaces encourage both conversation and silence, you are free to speak as much or as little as you like without feeling obligated. They’re fantastic locations for exploration and education, and if you’re an art enthusiast, they give you a chance to flaunt your skills. Better yet, they are inexpensive and understated.
Visiting an art gallery after hours will help you mix things up a bit. The Australian Museum offers free exhibitions, live music, and a pop-up bar for those looking to avoid the crowds. You can also visit the Powerhouse Museum for a variety of events relating to both art and music.
