Casual Valentine's Day plans

  • Be a kid at Questacon. Don't forget the zero-gravity free fall drop. It's hands down the best fun that can be had here.
  • Have a cheetah. Make a trip to the zoo that much more memorable by booking in an up close and personal encounter with one of its resident cheetahs.
  • Hike up to Black Mountain Tower. Formally Telstra Tower, this building rises 195 metres above Black Mountain and takes in a full panoramic view of the city of Canberra.
  • Clink glasses in a winery. Canberra is surrounded by many, including Four Winds, Lark Hill and Mount Majura. Screw it, just head into the general Canberra Wine District and go for your life.
  • Rent a pair of bikes and spend the Saturday out, cycling part of the 145km loop if the Cycle the Centenary Trail. It takes you through the city's urban and natural "treasures".
  • Take to the waters of Batemans Bay to paddle in pairs through its beautiful surrounds.
