Top 4 date night ideas in Brisbane

Whether it be a birthday, anniversary, celebration or an apology, the pressure to plan the all-important date night can take the fun out of the occasion before it even begins.

If you are seeking something a little different from the usual dinner and dessert date, here are four unique date night ideas for you to explore in Brisbane.

Outdoor Cinema

To spice up the generic movie date night, why not consider attending an outdoor cinema? There are many locations in Brisbane that showcase old favourites along with new releases and themed occasions, suitable for anybody and any occasion.

With special additions available such as beanbags, gourmet foods, alcoholic beverages and cheese platters, your date will surely feel special and appreciate your creative efforts.

Night Stroll

As the blue skies turn to black and the roads and cityscape light up, Brisbane transforms into a vibrant place. If the weather is on your side, make the most of Brisbane’s fine and stroll along the many scenic routes and trails scattered throughout the city.

The most popular walking routes at night are the Brisbane Riverwalk, which covers New Farm Park, East Brisbane and the Story Bridge, and the City Loop via Southbank or the Botanic Gardens and Kangaroo Point.

Sunset Kayak

If you and your date are feeling a little more adventurous, kayaking in Brisbane at sunset is a unique and fun idea. There are a variety of locations available in Brisbane to explore and lots of hidden gems to discover in your travels. Kayaking is a great way to incorporate some incidental exercise, learn more about Brisbane and travel in a mode of transport that is unique and exciting.

Picnic under the stars

For those who are more money-savvy but still want to impress with a meaningful experience for their date, hosting a picnic under the stars is the way to go.

Creating your own picnic means you can tailor food and beverage options to suit your date which is a touching way to show how much you listen and care. Top picks for picnic locations in Brisbane include: Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Mt Coot-tha, Southbank Parklands, Mt Gravatt Lookout, New Farm Park and many more!

If things happen and plans change – like consuming one too many glasses of wine with your date when you were the designated driver – the team at WeDrive will get you and your car home safely so you can continue the rest of your date night stress-free.
