Best Spring date ideas in Sydney


Spring has sprung and it’s the perfect time to emerge from our winter hibernation with a fresh new dating season. Whether it’s a first date or a chance to take your long-timer out for a romantic evening, these seven spring date ideas are sure to get sparks flying.


It’s hard to beat a classic romantic picnic when the sun is out and the temperature balmy. Grab a comfy rug, a packed lunch, your favourite bottle of wine, and head to your location of choice. If it’s a park setting you’re after, you can’t go past the Royal Botanic Gardens or Centennial Parklands, while Bradleys Head and Cockatoo Island both offer spectacular water views.

Drive in cinemas

A movie date with a twist, there’s just something about a drive-in cinema that brings out those teenage romance jitters. The Skyline Drive-In Theatre in Blacktown is a great venue and is also actually cheaper than a regular cinema. They also offer all the classic movie snacks like popcorn, chili cheese dogs and even cotton candy for the full experience.

For the adventurists among us, why not take advantage of Sydney’s beautiful harbour beaches and islands via kayak! Rose Bay Aquatic Hire offer kayak hire on weekends from 9am-3pm and weekdays by appointment. They also offer stand-up paddleboards if that’s more your style. Just make sure you phone ahead or check their Facebook page as they may sometimes close due to bad weather.

Rooftop bar

If you’d rather play it safe and grab a drink, there are many rooftop bars in Sydney that are perfect for soaking up that sun over a cocktail and stunning city view. Taylor’s Rooftop Bar, Coogee Pavilion, Royal Hotel Paddington, East Village Hotel, Glenmore Hotel, The Rook and Sweethearts Rooftop are all great options (among many)!

Comedy night

They say that compatible people often share the same humour, so why not share a few laughs together at The Comedy Lounge. They host a Gala Show every Monday night, the Waywards stand-up comedy night on Wednesdays, as well as special shows on Saturday and Sunday as advertised.

Mini Golf

Holey Moley is a Mini Golf course and cocktail bar in Newtown, Castle Hill and just recently opening its third Sydney venue in Darlinghurst. It turns traditional putt putt into a multi-sensory experience of unique holes that’ll keep you and your date entertained with the craziest round of golf you’ve ever played. And with drinks, tunes and eats on offer you’re set for the ultimate date night fun.

Glamping getaway

For something extra special, escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a romantic weekend getaway at Tandara. Situated at Lane Cove National Park among flourishing gardens and wildlife, you’ll enjoy a glamping tent with all the necessary amenities, plus wireless internet and electric power for the most luxurious camping experience you could imagine.
