Romantic Date

Hi everyone,

My wife and I are holidaying on the Gold Coast for a week in early Jan 2012, and I was wondering what suggestions everyone had regarding what I could do to make one day a date day. What romantic places/things to do are there on the GC or not too far away?

Thanks everyone

Top 10 Romantic Activities on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is one of Australia's best locations to enjoy a romantic experience with a special person. There are plenty of romantic activities perfectly suited for couples. The beautiful atmosphere can also enhance a couple's romantic experience. Here are 10 romantic ideas for couples who are visiting the Gold Coast:

1

Relax on the Beach

Couples can visit one of the breathtaking beaches along the Gold Coast to see celestial sunsets and tranquil waves crashing onto the shore. These beaches can provide the perfect setting for a romantic picnic or a stroll along the sand. The seaside areas of Surfers Paradise and Mermaid Beach are particularly notable spots.

2

Take a Hot Air Balloon Flight

Taking one of these romantic excursions can be a truly magical experience. Couples can float high above Surfers Paradise to capture views of the ocean and impressive city skyline.

3

Go Scuba Diving

Couples can bond as they dive beneath the sea. Many forms of colourful aquatic life will be present as couples navigate through the waters. Couples can explore the hull of a sunken ship at the Scottish Prince dive site located just off the coast of Southport. Couples can also dive off the coast of Palm Beach to see a magnificent coral reef.

4

Visit the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens

This garden paradise can be found in the Gold Coast suburb of Ashmore. Couples can see several species of beautiful plant life. The attraction also features a lovely butterfly garden.

5

Go Kayaking

Couples can rent a boat in the suburb of Main Beach and go kayaking to a group of secluded islands located just a few minutes off the coast. This gives couples the perfect opportunity to escape the crowds and enjoy a more private experience.

6

Take a Cruise

The Southport Broadwater and the canals of Surfers Paradise are two of the best areas to take a dreamy cruise. Couples can marvel at the sights of luxury homes, extensive cityscapes and gorgeous coastal views.

7

Go Shopping

Couples can splurge on romantic gifts for one another by visiting one of the Gold Coast's elite shopping centres. Centro Surfers Paradise, Robina Town Centre and Harbour Town in Biggera Waters are filled with an array of fabulous retail stores. In addition to shopping, couples can also dine at one of the restaurants located in these centres.

8

See the Whales

A whale watching cruise is a great activity for couples who wish to share a bonding experience as they witness these majestic creatures of the sea up close and in person. The ideal spot for a whale watching cruise is near Surfers Paradise.

9

Enjoy a Massage

A trained massage therapist can travel to visitors' locations all around the Gold Coast and administer their soothing bodywork techniques. Many of these therapists are able to provide couples massages to accommodate both partners.

10

Visit a Theme Park

Romantic travellers can enjoy a day of fun together at one of the Gold Coast's exciting theme parks. Sea World in Southport and Dreamworld in Coomera are the perfect parks where partners can sit close to one another as they enjoy the thrilling rides.

If you're looking for a whole day if its a sunday i would go for something like heading to the turf club markets and strolling around the fresh food and buy a bunch of flowers for the mrs. Then maybe a couples massage at Versace at main beach. I love a restaurant down at broadbeach called alto which serves tapas food. It has a great vibe and fantastic food
