Putt Putt Mini Golf – Victoria Park, Herston

For a date that’ll putt a smile on your faces, check out Victoria Park’s quirky 18-hole Mini Golf course. Located on stunning rolling green hills with city skyline views, the golf park is flowing with romantic ambience. Putt putt is on during the day and stays open late ‘til 10pm so there’s plenty of time to get a game in. No bookings needed and they’re also fully licenced with a specially crafted bistro menu. What more could you need for the perfect date night out?

Picnic and a Show – New Farm Park, Brunswick Street   

If you haven’t been to New Farm Park before, it’s time to get yourself there, pronto. New Farm Park is the perfect place for fun dates, with plenty of activities on and a constant buzz of energy in the air. Bring the romance with a picnic by the river complete with cheeseboard and drinks. Or why not surprise your sweetheart with all their fave takeout dishes? Follow it with a live show at the Brisbane Powerhouse; a modern spin to the typical dinner and movie and it’s sure to impress!

Latin Friday Nights – Brisbane Square, Brisbane City

The fiesta begins with a display by professional Latin dancers for your entertainment. At 8pm it’s your turn to tango with a free dance class (no experience necessary!) on offer for all to join in.

A day date planned like this is guaranteed to have you in the good books.
