Go star gazing at the The Sydney Observatory. In 2017 it opened on Valentine's Day for starry-eyed couples, offering a package that includes canapes, wine and out-of-this-world views.
Have a staycation. It's a thing and even though you're not leaving the city, you will feel as though you're miles away from the 9-5 when you wake up surrounded by luxury.
Do the Bronte to Bondi walk and cool off with a dip at the end and a cup of Gelato Messina (for two).
Feeling a little more active? Try a tandem bike ride for two, instead.
If you're thinking of proposing, you can book a table at one of the best restaurants in town (see below) or make a fuss with a seaplane for two to Jonah's Restaurant for a lunch with all the privacy you need to pop the question.
Not quite ready to propose? A private sunset helicopter ride over Sydney is just as special.
And finally, don't forget the roses / flowers / chocolates / lingerie / gifts in general.
The dining rooms inside the Sir Stamford in Circular Quay beat to the tune of love all day long. On Valentine's Day 2017 the romancing started on Friday night with a 3-course Romeo & Juliet dinner complete with candlelight and French Champagne ($199 per couple). The same went for Saturday evening's event. Next year who knows what the Sir Stamford will come up with.
It could be the water views. It could be the two chef's hats awarded cuisine. It could be the company. Whatever it is, Pilu is where your Valentine's Day reaches perfection. As the light streams through the glass windows and the smell of fresh produce hits your nostrils, you'll gaze into your lover's yes and realise that, yeah, this is heaven.
In 2017, Pilu offered a 4-course lunch or dinner for Valentine's Day for $150pp.
Exclusive doesn't even begin to describe this gastronomic affair. Within this intimate space is a unique, degustation experience that takes Japanese flavours and enhances them with tried and tested French techniques to deliver a stream of infinitely memorable dishes.
Tetsuya's is not open on Sundays or Mondays so for a gastronomic affair at this restaurant, we suggest you book for Saturday evening.
We're talking French cuisine surrounded by The Rocks in a plush setting that scream 'European boudoir'. Its bar offers Champagnes by the bottle, magnum and jeroboam and its cocktails are sweet morsels of tres bien. Wear your Sunday best and reserve your seat for an impeccable meal.
This is one of those ventures that you must try at least once in your lifetime if you're a Sydney-sider. It's contemporary Japanese with all the right twists and turns in flavour that even purists who swear by the flavours of the Orient will agree to. Vegetarian options, gluten-free and 'no raw' options all available.
For Valentine's Day 2017 there was a set menu, which included champagne, for $110pp.

7. Flying Fish | Jones Bay Wharf, 19-21 Pirrama Rd, Pyrmont
Fishing for the finest catch in the ocean? (Hint: you've already caught her). All puns aside, for a fresh take on the Valentine's Day dinner we say, ferry your way to the end of the wharf and into the intimate world of Flying Fish. The spotlight is, as you've probably already gathered, on the seafood with the menu dripping with seasonal catches enhanced with Asian-inspired flavours.
Lunch was the name of the game at Flying Fish on Valentine's Day 2017 which included a 3-course of your choice for $170pp.
For Valentine's Day 2017, The Grounds hosted a The Grounds Secret Garden romantic feast in various locations of its venue. To add to the atmosphere, the gardens were illuminated by fairy lights and there was live entertainment, a four-course meal, unlimited Champagne, a photobooth and swing for two and treats to take home.
Next year it's anyone's guess. The Grounds always delivers something stunning but what it is you'll have to sign up to their newsletter to find out. Sneaky, am i rite?
