I love doing these date posts. It can be seriously hard to come up with fun new ideas and activities to do with your significant other and while I draw inspiration from others I still manage to make the most of Melbourne and Victoria when coming up with date ideas for Mark and me.
I want to share 5 of the best summer dates for couples
Whether you’re living or visiting Melbourne and Victoria. Most of these activities can be completed during the summer every year so don’t stress if you don’t get around to them this summer.
- Frankston Waterfront Sand sculptures.
These sculptures are amazing. Hosted by Sandstorm Events these sculptures arrive in the form of plain sand and are transformed every boxing day. Each year there is a different theme and this year is A Day At the Zoo. There is some serious talent to check out and entry is under $20 each.
- Moonlight Cinema Royal Botanic Gardens.
Running from December to March, Moonlight Cinema plays new and favourite films all summer. With different levels of admission tickets will set you back from $15-$30 with the optional cost of a bean bed for $9.
- Dinner at Welcome to Thornbury.
Food Truck dining at its most convenience you could drag this out for a few dates. With a roster of food trucks constantly changing Welcome to Thornbury is your new dinner destination every single date.
- Night Markets.
Hit up any of the night markets for food and fun. Often midweek the night markets of Melbourne can be a set of midweek dates if you’ve just started out or a mission to shop them all if you’re stuck for ideas.
- Paddle Boarding in St Kilda.
I have been wanting to do this for ages and now its so easy to book into. Paddle Boarding just out of the city in sunny St Kilda with Stand Up Paddle Boarding can be cheap or a little pricier depending on your booking. Check out http://supb.com.au/ for more details and a whole lot of fun.
BONUS DATE: White night is hitting Melbourne soon. While it does run from 7 pm -7 am I recommend heading in at about 3 am. You still get to see the exhibits but all the kids are home in bed.
