Get a date IN THE CAPITAL CITY
The special thing about ACT is that, owing to it’s lofty elevation and fair distance from the coast, it experiences four distinct seasons. This means that hot, dry summers are followed by textbook golden-hued autumns and frosty winters; and ACT singles are able to experience the opulence of multi-seasonal dating.
We’ve put together a cross-season ACT dating guide, so you can make the most of all this region has to offer:
It’s one of the wettest segments of the calendar, so if you’re dating in ACT in Spring, you may prefer to pursue your cultural yearnings and take shelter in one of Canberra’s many museums and galleries. The National Film& Sound Archive is an absolute must for televisiophiles everywhere. It is Australia’s living archive, bringing to life the tales of its ancestors through film, T V, radio and artefacts. There are over 1.9 million items in the collection so it really does give a fascinating and thorough insight and the renowned Arc cinema, plays thought-provoking world cinema – great for ACT singles looking to inject a quirky twist into the traditional cinema date.
ACT summers are notoriously hot and dry so ACT singles should get out and enjoy the sunshine. The Australian National Botanic Gardens, the Floriade festival of flowers or Booroomba Rocks Walk are excellent ACT dating ideas. If you want to make it really special you could always go that one step further a pack a delicious home-made picnic for the two of you to share.
Make the most of all the colour and enigmatic richness this season has to offer with a nature-orientated date. A lazy stroll along the tree-lined banks of Lake Burley, can be followed by a few schooners in a charming old pub somewhere. The Old Canberra Inn is an ideal choice – it has a unique character and charm that’s recognised by the National Trust of Australia.
Canberra and Tuggeranong winters are somewhat freezing so if you’re dating in ACT on the wrong side of May, it might be best to stick to things like The Museum of Australia followed by a pair of Starbucks hot chocolates. A museum date is especially suited for those who enjoy wandering around and looking at exhibits, especially if you’re dating someone who enjoys history as much as you.
