                8 more romantic events or things to do in Adelaide for Valentine's Day

                • Scale great heights with an abseiling adventure. Set your hearts aflutter by abseiling in the Adelaide Hills region. This experience is only available on Saturdays, so surprise her with some flowers and dinner first before revealing the true gift for the weekend after.
                • Take a relaxing hike among the villages and trails of Adelaide Hills.
                • Close encounters at Adelaide Zoo. Answer this honestly: when was the last time you went to the zoo? Relive the joy of a day trip and tack on a close encounter with a hippo at Adelaide Zoo. Absolutely adorable.
                • Swim with the dolphins. Channel your inner "Flipper" and dive in for a swim with one of the most majestic creatures in the water. But if you'd prefer to stay OUT of the water...
                • Visit an art galleries along North Terrace. You can also get a feel of the rich history of the area by visiting the South Australian Museum, the Migration Museum, the Adelaide Oval and many other star attractions located in Adelaide.
                • Book yourself in for a Chamber Music Concert on the day after Valentine's Day (15 February). It comes complete with four remarkable musicians. That's music to your ears, right?
                • Cruise along the Murray River. It's the longest river in Australia and on it, you'll pass through historical and cultural settings.
                • See the ranges. The Flinders Ranges. It's one of those quintessential sights of South Australia and a sight that must be experienced with good company - that is, your other half. You'll have to delay until the weekend for this one, but true is, it's worth it.
