Sydney is full of inspiring date locations. Whether you’re a sports fan, into music, enjoy being active or prefer to kick back and relax, there’s guaranteed to be a date that suits your taste. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
Coffee Date - Arranging to meet at your favourite coffee spot is a great option for your first date. The inner-suburbs are packed full of cafes offering delicious meals and a comfortable atmosphere where you can sit back, relax, and spend time getting to know each other.
Beach Date - Some of Sydney’s best beaches are within 10kms of the city. Head to Bondi or Manly to soak up the sun and lively vibe or discover a quieter spot like Clovelly to relax and unwind. If you’re feeling energetic, why not do the coastal walk between the two! You can stop along the way for a dip or some lunch.
Picnic Lunch Date - Grab a blanket, some food and head to a park for a casual date. Stroll around the Royal Botanic Gardens then find a shady spot on the grass at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, sit down and enjoy some stunning views of Sydney city.
Movie Date - In the summertime why not watch a movie in the park? The moonlight cinema at Centennial Park is the perfect setting for a romantic date. Take a picnic rug, some wine and cheese and hang out under the stars together.
Clubbing Date - Sydney has a vibrant clubbing scene. With regular nights every day of the week, you’ll find matches for all tastes, from mainstream to indie, retro, alternative, underground and disco.
Dinner Date - Dine by the harbour, enjoy a pub meal or soak up the views from a cool rooftop bar. You’re spoilt for choice with Sydney’s amazing range of multicultural food and wine venues. If you’d like to combine all three into one, head to the Glenmore Hotel in The Rocks. This pub offers fantastic harbour views from its rooftop and a relaxed pub atmosphere, the perfect spot for a casual dinner date.
Active Date - If you like to keep active, even on your dates, Sydney has plenty to offer. You could head into the Blue Mountains for a bushwalk, the National Pass Trail is guaranteed to impress you and your date. Nice sunny day? Catch the ferry from Circular Quay to Manly, hire some kayaks and paddle around the pristine waters of the North Harbour.

"Neither of us had done anything like this before - eharmony was the first time we ventured into online dating. After completing the profile questionnaire we began to receive and review matches sent to us by eharmony, and both found this to be quite exciting. I had only been on the site for two weeks before Paul caught my eye. Paul was my first and last date! We now live together in Sydney and the rest, as they say, is history!"Join Now
