We all look forward to date night with our significant other. It is important to have time together away from the stress of daily life. Brisbane offers endless opportunities to get out and just enjoy each other. Here are some unique date night ideas in the Queensland capital city that are sure to give you lasting memories.
Visit Kangaroo Point The Brisbane suburb of Kangaroo Point is located east across the Brisbane River from the Brisbane central business district. You can plan a picnic and head to the Kangaroo Point cliffs to enjoy dinner during a gorgeous sunset. Or dine early at one of the many excellent Kangaroo Point restaurants and make it to the cliffs for sunset. Then take a leisurely stroll along the cliff walkway, relishing in the spectacular view of the river and sparkling city lights.
Brisbane Lookout Touted as the best view in the city, Brisbane Lookout at Mt. Coot-tha would be a wonderful place to go for a night of romance. There are two top-notch restaurants to choose from for dinner. Summit Restaurant and Bar is an upscale restaurant with gorgeous views of the city where you can go for cocktails or a nice dinner. If you are in the mood for a more casual experience, Kuta Cafe also has spectacular views of the city but in a more relaxed atmosphere. After dinner, hold hands as you walk along the lookout and enjoy the panoramic views of the glittering city.
Dinner Cruise For an unforgettable date night, take your loved one on one of Brisbane's many dinner cruises. Kookaburra Showboat Cruises offers live entertainment, dancing, and a tour of Brisbane's best sights. Or, Golden Gondola lets you experience old world charm and romance. You will savor a catered dinner while you cruise along the Brisbane River in a private chauffeured gondola.
South Bank For an evening full of endless possibilities, visit South Bank and the South Bank Parklands along the southern banks of the Brisbane River. For dinner, eat in one of the many world-class restaurants or enjoy a picnic on the white sand of man-made Streets Beach. Take an after-dinner stroll and enjoy the beautiful scenery and views of the city. For an added treat, take a romantic ride on the Wheel of Brisbane. This 197-foot-tall ferris wheel will take your breath away with the unmatched views of the city it will provide.
Ghost Tours Finally, if you are looking for a night truly out of the ordinary, have a date that is a little on the spooky side. Brisbane ghost tours will take you and your date on tours through some of Australia's most historic haunted sites. Your eerie tour guide will tell fascinating ghost stories, unexplained mysteries, urban legends and myths, and true tales of murder, love and death. It will give you the added benefit of a local history lesson as you and your love cuddle together for comfort as you walk through eerie places and listen to the unearthly tales.
