Last Minute Valentines Date Ideas

February 9, 2021

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this year Brisbane is serving up the romance! Loaded with love filled activities and breathtaking sights, Brisbane is giving Paris- the city of love, a run for their money.

From climbing to the top of the Story Bridge to waterfront dining at Northshore Harbour Café, love can be found in the most unlikely of places and activities. If you’re feeling stuck for Valentine’s day date ideas this list will explore the many ways Brisbane is celebrating love this year – and how you can get in on it.

Riverlife Valentines day kayak

Kayaking on the Brisbane River when the sunset turns to dusk captures the insane beauty of our city’s lights and sounds. It’s beauty so unique that it needs to be captured with someone special. This year Riverlife, Kangaroo Point, is bringing together the city flow, river flow and romantic flow with their Valentine’s day twilight kayak. Generally speaking, kayaking is a gratifying way to get rid of all distractions and get outside your comfort zone. It creates the unusual juxtaposition of feeling totally at peace but excited and liberated too. Yet, when it comes to this special Valentine’s day twilight kayak, even more appreciation must be given. By booking into the 90-minute illuminated kayak journey you will also be booking into a dining experience. An antipasto grazing board alongside sweet petit fours will be served with your own chosen beverage. Count us in please!

Riverlife d.i.y kayak

Is your idea of having fun exploring the outdoors? And is your idea of a romantic lunch setting up a picnic in a private parkland? If you have answered yes to both these questions, you might be interested in choosing your own adventure with Riverlife this Valentine’s day.

Riverlife has a D.I.Y date on offer, including a self-guided adventure experience of your choosing and a wholesome picnic hamper by the water. The adventure choices include a 2-hour kayak hire; 30-minute water bike hire; 1-day bike hire; 1-day rollerblade hire; and a 1-day URB-E hire. Afterwards, you can choose to have a picnic in the parklands, or a picnic set up in a riverside marquee. How about that for an adventurous, fun and romantic day in Brisbane.

This is top 3 of the most romantic and fancy date on the list because what sounds fancier than a 3- course extravaganza!

Story bridge climb valentine’s day toast at the top climb

Fancy a glass of bubbles at the top of the Story Bridge? This Valentine’s day Story Bridge Adventure Climb is taking the glorious bridge climb one step further. At the top of the bridge, you can have a toast admiring and embracing your loved one. It has the potential to be a romantic moment that steals the show from the highly praised view!

If you’re feeling up for a bit of a thrill, you can also add on a Cantilever Lean Out or Walk The Plank experience on the top platform of the iconic structure. To climb the Story Bridge is nearly as iconic as the Story Bridge itself. It is a fulfilling, memorable climb because it makes you go wow: wow as in you climbed 1,138 steps, and wow because the view it delivers. So, we say go big or go home and climb that bridge!

Up for the climb? Book here.

Tangalooma resort romantic holiday two night package

Can someone explain why an island romantic getaway at Tangalooma sounds like a Valentine’s dream? A ferry journey of 75 minutes out of Brisbane waters will have you spellbound over the slice of paradise found at Moreton Island.
