Nothing puts a smile on their face like a thoughtful surprise gift.

Relive Your First Date One More Time

This one will take their breath away – although it might require a good memory!

Throw back to where your relationship all started by recreating your very first date. Go to the same location, order the same food, get the same music playing, and experience that special day all over again.

Your valentine will be overwhelmed with the thought and effort you put in, especially the fact you were able to remember everything that made your time together so special.

Get Arty at Fringe World Festival

Fringe World Festival includes hundreds of local, national and international acts entering the Perth scene. With so many options to choose from, you and your valentine will be spoiled for choice. Don’t just limit it to one show this Valentine’s Day, why not pick a few from the long line-up of:

  • Music & Musicals
  • Theatre
  • Comedy Acts
  • Circus Performance
  • And much more

Why not spice things up with a unique cabaret performance this Valentine’s Day?

Have A Perth-fect Valentine’s Day Picnic


Locals know how great summer is in Perth. Clear skies and long afternoons make for perfect picnic weather.

Order a picnic hamper online and set up at one of Perth’s many beautiful romantic lookouts with your Valentine. From Kalamunda’s zigzag lookout with amazing panoramic views of the Perth CBD to the Perth hills travelling a stunning scenic drive, having a picnic is a great Valentine’s Day idea for new couples.

Find the Ideal Romantic Valentine’s Day Restaurant

Feel like a hassle-free romantic dinner?

Perth has some of the best restaurants in the country, many of which have special Valentine’s Day menus available.

Treating your valentine to dinner is one of the safest options for new couples. With a bit of thought about their favourite food, you can surprise them with a delicious night out, without the hassle of cooking and cleaning.

Some more local favourites include:

Book A Perth Hotel

A relatively easy to organise first Valentine’s Day idea, why not book a home away from home at a Perth hotel.

Many Perth hotels offer their own Valentines specials, some even include champagne and a candlelit dinner in the price of the room. Booking a hotel for the night is a great option for new couples that have left organising their Valentine’s Day to the last minute.

See a Rooftop Movie

Operated by the producers of Fringe World Festival, Rooftop Movies offer an open-air movie experience with a peaceful and romantic ambience for new couples.

If it’s your first Valentine’s Day in Perth, head to a local restaurant before cuddling up with your Valentine under the stars to watch a rooftop movie. End the night with a slow walk through Northbridge, which is usually lit up and thriving during the Fringe World Festival.

Get in quick to book a premium couple lounge this Valentine’s Day.

Sing the Night Away with Couples Karaoke

Karaoke is a great ice-breaker for new couples, sure to be full of fun, laughter and very average singing. Try some classic couples duets such as ‘I Got You Babe’, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’ and ‘Summer Nights’.

But don’t even think about practising! The best part about karaoke is trying to sing the lyrics as they quickly appear on the screen. Karaoke is sure to make for a memorable first Valentine’s Day date.
