Valentine’s Day in Sydney

Love it or hate it, we just have to except it: Valentine’s Day is around the corner! For all you single Pringles out there, look away now, Sun Scribes is about to get soppy…very soppy!

If you find yourself with a date this V-Day but have no idea where to start, don’t worry I’ve come up with some ideas bound to make it a night to remember! From sunset cruises, to dining with the Taronga monkeys and everything in between, I’m sure you’ll find something here to woo him/her!

Valentine’s Day Sunset Cruise

Not a bad price at $89 each. Make the most of the summer sunshine with a pre-sunset dinner aboard MV Sydney 2000. The evening includes a three-course set dinner and a glass of Moët, along with sparkling wine, beer, soft drinks and a chocolate gift. To book your night click here!

Valentine’s Day at Taronga Zoo

My boyfriend and I did a similar event last Valetine’s in Dublin Zoo and it was amazing! At just $80 each, dine in the Zoo with a top-notch four-course meal, plus a cocktail and sparkling wine. Afterward enjoy a zoo walkabout after hours with keepers’ talks on the courtship of the wild. To book call 6881 1438.

Open Air Cinema Bondi

We took a trip to the Open Air Cinema in Bondi this week and it was worth every penny! Don’t bother spending extra on the loungers and deck chairs, bring a blanket, a year’s supply of chocolate and snuggle up to a good movie by the ocean! Visit here for more information.

Ferris Wheel Dining Experience

Quite pricey, but if you’ve got the cash, why not make it a magical night to remember. For $399 (for two), enjoy stunning panoramic views of Sydney and the Harbour from the Luna Park Ferris Wheel. From your private carriage you will be wined and dined with a fabulous selection of entries, mains and desserts, all on white table cloth with a fancy waiter!

Valentine’s Day at the Sydney Observatory

For all the nerds with a romantic side to them, this one is perfect for you. Celebrate Cupid with a sunset over the harbour and stargazing with a drink in hand. Guided by astronomical experts, this is sure to be a Valentine’s to remember as you peer through theSouth Dome telescope — the oldest working telescope in Australia. Can you get much more romantic than that?? Get booking here now!

Sydney City Thai Massage

I’m one for a bargain and love searching through deal sites to spot some cracking finds! This one I think is perfect to surprise your partner with on Feb’ 14! For just $99 (or $197 for two), enjoy 110 minutes of massage, a.k.a pure bliss! That includes a one-hour body massage, 40-minute facial and a 10-minute foot soak. Follow this link to grab this deal.

Valentine’s Harbourside Cruise 

if you’re looking for something slightly more casual while still keeping the romance, this cruise might be for you and your significant other! Cruise the Sydney Harbour with cocktail-style canapés, finger food, complimentary glass of bubbly and a DJ banging out all the classic love songs with a dance floor! For just $48 per person this would be a great night out for those looking to escape the rose petals and chocolate! This looks like it will sell out quickly, so get booking here!
