February 14 is just a few nights away. Still got no clue how to spend the day or where to take your date? Here, we round up the 10 best places and events you can check out in Australia on Valentine’s Day.
– Spicers Vineyards Estate
What’s more romantic than the “most romantic”? TripAdvisor recently released the Top 10 Travelers’ Choice Hotels for Romance in the World. Spicers Vineyards Estate in Pokolbin is the only hotel in Australia that made the Top 10. According to their website, Spicers is committed to being “the most luxurious way to put everything that life takes out.” They offer Gourmet Getaways, Spa Getaways and, of course, Romantic Getaways.
– Harbour Cruise
What’s a better way of celebrating your love than aboard a cruise at Sydney Harbour? Take in the sights. Enjoy the evening sea breeze. Enjoy a three-course meal in an “intimate table for two.” You can do all these if you choose to set sail from King Street Wharf. You can find out more about this cruise here.
– Dinner by the Harbour
Of course you can always forego the cruise and just have dinner near the harbour. According to WeekendNotes.com, Aria is always a popular option. The Harbour Bridge and the Opera House would surely make a fantastic backdrop to a romantic night.
– O Bar and Dining
Speaking of backdrops, another fantastic restaurant with a view is O Bar and Dining. The restaurant is 47 floors above street level and has a “fantastic panoramic view of Sydney.”
– Melbourne Star
Craving something higher? Melbourne Star’s “Sparkling Star” options may be perfect for you. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, couples can enjoy wine and chocolate-dipped aboard a shared cabin. You can also book the cabin just for the two of you, but it’ll cost you extra.

– Wendy’s Secret Garden, Lavender Bay
This lush garden in the middle of Sydney is perfect for a Valentine’s picnic.
– The Darling Spa
What says “I love you” better than a day of pampering? The Darling Spa offers a glass of Chandon Brut to guests as a Valentine’s treat. Goodfood.com says this option could also be perfect for singletons.
– Afternoon Tea at The Langham, Sydney
The Langham, Sydney offers “love, luxury and elegance” on Valentine’s Day.
