1. A Harbour Walk
We've come up with a list of things to do around Sydney this Valentine's Day. Coming in at number one is a walk around the dazzling Sydney Harbour.
Blackwattle Bay is a quiet spot with stunning view of the Anzac Bridge, while The Royal Botanic Garden boasts amazing plants and trees with a view of the iconic Opera House and Bridge.
Why we like it: If you run out of things to talk about on your date, you can always discuss how beautiful the sunset is.
2. Get physical on the water
Feeling a bit more adventurous? There are a variety of ways to get onto the Harbour, from kayaking to stand-up paddleboarding or swimming. Left your date-planning to the last minute? Hop on a Sydney ferry and let the gasping ensue.
Why we like it: A great excuse to get on the water!
3. Watch the stars
Gaze at the solar system alongside your significant other at Sydney Observatory.
Why we like it: You could study up on some stars and constellations and impress your date with your new knowledge of astronomy.
4. Take in some theatre
Why we like it: You don't have to try to keep the conversation going all evening.
5. Take a culture walk
Don’t just see the sights: learn about Sydney’s public art and history while you do so. Our free Culture Walks app offers a unique insight into our city. Download now.
Why we like it: A great way to debate which art you each like or dislike and get to know your date a little more.
6. Baked goods
Some people like recieving flowers on Valentines Day. And others prefer delicious, delicious pastries and crossiants. From AP Bakery, Flour and Stone, Bourke Street Bakery, Humble, Brickfields or Shadow Bakery, butter-baked goods may melt their heart.
Why we like it: Your date could last just one crossiant or you could spend the whole day ordering one of everything.
7. Have a date with yourself
What's more 2024 that a bit of self love? Take yourself to the cinema, book a table for one, spend some time reading in a book shop or your local library.
You can even catch up on our biggest reading trends of 2023.
Why we like it: Experiencing the city by yourself is a whole new way to see Sydney, you might notice things you haven't before.
8. Make new friends
Or book a ticket to Antenna Documentary festival and discuss the film with audience members afterwards.
Why we like it: It's adventurous to head out by yourself, who knows who you might meet!
