The town of Emerald is named for the lush green hill that sits just north of this picturesque town. Nearby you can find the Sapphire gemfields that are home to some of the most beautiful stones in the hemisphere, and this quaint little town sparkles just like the gems you can find nearby.
In a small town, it can be hard to meet new people in the traditional way. That’s where eharmony comes in, helping Emerald singles to meet other people who are looking for meaningful relationships. Our unique questionnaire allows us to go much deeper than other dating sites to match you with other singles and professional singles that are compatible with you on many levels.
Once you’ve had time to get to know a few matches on eharmony, you might like to meet up in person, so here are some fun Emerald dating ideas if you’re not quite sure what to do:
One of Emerald’s biggest attractions is the nearby gemfields that showcase sapphires in a whole range of different colours. You and your date can take a tour of these rich, plentiful fields and marvel at the varieties of different gems. Head to nearby Rubyvale and stop into the Gem Gallery, home to a huge collection of precious stones including sapphires, opals and rubies. Attend the annual Gemfest in August to see the best of what this magnificent region has to offer.
Follow the mosaic brick road
Head to picturesque Morton Park and hold hands while walking along the mosaic pathway, which depicts the last century of Emerald’s history. The gorgeous detailed mosaics were created by local Emerald artists. Follow the path to the world’s biggest Van Gogh sunflower painting, which can be found in the heart of the park. After you’ve taken a stroll through the town’s memory lane, enjoy a BBQ in the lush gardens.
You and your date could check out Emerald’s first railway station, situated on Clermont Street. Its Edwardian architecture makes this historic building a beautiful monument and a testament to the town’s history. Come take a look at this heritage-listed building – it’s a site worth visiting.
eharmony can help
Often on other photo based online dating sites, people create a personality that isn’t a true reflection of themselves. At eharmony, being “you” is the whole point. The more honest you are about yourself and what you’re looking for, the better the chance your matches will be deeply compatible with you. And you’ll find that other singles are drawn to discovering and getting to know the real you – that’s why our site has already helped create millions of long-lasting relationships around the world, and now Emerald singles have the chance to meet like-minded people who are compatible with you based on the things that really matter, like values, intellect, sense of humour and emotional intelligence.
