25 Romantic Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Perth 2016

Information verified correct on October 21st, 2016

With its public art, small bars, enviable coffee culture and natural wonders, the cultural hub that is Perth is fast securing its spot in the hearts of Valentine's Day holiday-makers.

Let's face it, Perth: underrated. It might be the most isolated city in the world, (fun fact) and the population might seem a tad on the skimpish side - flirting just shy of the two-million mark - but its wealth of activities coupled with its air of tranquility is the ideal formula for fun and romance.

Isolation does have its finer points too, including being able to avoid that embarrassing bump into your ex- on the most loved-up day of the year and that despondent call from your lonely, emo bestie asking you if you're free to 'hang' and chat about why no one loves them.

And let's not forget, when in Perth you're pretty much guaranteed sunshine for your whole stay.

8 romantic things to do in Perth that are actually still bookable on Valentines Day


11 other things to do in Perth on Valentines Day

  • See the coast at sunset: Cruise the waters of Fremantle en route to Carnac Island and snuggle into one another's arms as you witness the sun kiss the horizon.
  • Discover the secret life of Perth: You could wander the streets in search of the ultimate small bar for your personalities, or you could enlist an expert's opinion to speed up the process. Totally up to you.
  • Enjoy a lunch cruise down the Swan River: Doubling down doesn't get easier than this. Secure your seat for a magical afternoon of culinary delights and city sights.
  • Tandem skydive over Perth: Stop procrastinating and skydive over your city with your loved one beside you.
  • Take a day trip to Rottnest Island: Spend a whole day sailing, exploring pristine bays and walking along secluded beaches.
  • Be different with a Pinnacles Desert day tour: Adventurous couples seeking thrills and spills will love this to the Pinnacles Desert. There's even a spot of sandboarding in your future.
  • Have a picnic in King's Park: Simply enjoy each other's company in the sunshine. Pack a romantic picnic meal, lay down the picnic rug and the perfect Valentine's Day is complete.
  • Go star gazing: Perth Observatory is one of the oldest, continuously operating observatory in Australia. If the sky is clear this will set the scene for an evening of sweet romance.
  • Be kids in Adventure World: We had to throw a fun one in there, because the IS nothing better than reliving your childhood with your best friend.
  • Take a romantic walk on the beach: It's a cliche, but it is very much romantic. Cottlesloe is a constant fave for the locals and tourists.
  • Drive the wine region: Hire a car and drive into the sunset. Well, not literally. It's more like drive south toward Margaret River and Pemberton. Take the long, scenic coastline way and really make a trip of it.

4. Petite Mort | 225 Onslow Rd, Shenton Pk

If the name isn't already a dead giveaway as to what sort of cuisine you're in for tonight, then we don't know what is. It's French, by the way. But not as you know it.

Petite Mort follows a small plate philosophy, divulging in either an 3 course meal or an 8 or 10 degustation delight. This not only provides variety, but an undeniably unique experience. Bon apetit!

5. Co-op Dining | 2/11 Regel Pl, East Perth

Those with a passion for economically sustainable food will fall in love with Co-op Dining. As always, this is a one-in-a-lifetime experience, so it's best paired with your best mate (aka your soul mate).

The food is wildly forages from Western Australia and is either organic or biodynamic and the venture makes its own dairy products (from that sustainable produce). The plates run many with your choice of 5 or 10 course delights and the wine flows from the best in local and up-and-coming producers.

6. Divido | 170 Scarborough Bch Rd, Mt Hawthorn

Celebrate your Valentine's Day with one of the most passionate cultures in the world: the Italians. This casual diner has been serving up plates of mama's finest since 2005 and doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. It's simple, it's honest, it's rustic and it's made with love. Yeah, we said it. Because it's true.

As a special treat V-Day will be marked with a set 3-course menu with complimentary side of 6-course degustation.
