Three little words can mean so much to a person on Valentine’s Day… “Let’s go away!” Tweet this!
Sure, “I love you” is also nice to hear. But it sounds so much better mumbled on a cosy interlude for two, far away from the daily grind, with a backdrop of food, film, pantless parties and sexy musings.
Romance under the stars in Sydney
Give the old stretch and cuddle manoeuvre a go at the Australian premiere of the rewrite. This newly released rom-com starring Hugh Grant is screening at the Open Air Cinema on 14 February, with the glorious Sydney Harbour playing backdrop.
It’s just all too blissful wining and dining on a summer’s night, snuggling up for a laugh, then strolling back through the Botanic Gardens to the Pullman Quay Grand Sydney Harbour for a spa bath and… um…

Cheeky charity run in Melbourne
Get your kit off for the Cupids Undie Run on 14 February (also Sydney and the Gold Coast). With love handles quivering, dash the 1.5km in your bedroom best to raise money for charity. Earn your undies and other cool stuff, and celebrate Valentine’s Day with hundreds of others at the pre and post-run parties. Don’t want your jiggly bits on display? Go for the ‘I’m a bit shy’ ticketing option.
After all that physical exertion, relax with a massage at the Crown Promenade Melbourne and swoon out on the Observation Deck.

Local delights in Launceston
There’s sure to be plenty of aphrodisiacs amongst all the goodies at Festivale in Launceston. From 13-15 February, you can amble arm-in-arm feeding each other Tassie treats while being serenaded by Mental as Anything, the Eurogliders, Grace Knight and more. If the ankle-biters insist on crashing your weekend, there are circus and dance workshops, playgroup for 0-5 year olds, face painting, ballooning and craft activities galore.
They say love is about compromise… so a game of golf at the Country Club Tasmania followed by a stroll around the picturesque lake or lounging about in the sauna sounds very
fair romantic to us.

Push your lover to the fringe in Adelaide
Give your senses a thorough workout at the Adelaide Fringe Festival on 14 February. From free events such as “DIMensions of a Sext” and live music concert “An Evening Under the Stars”, to ticketed shows like the jaw-dropping Spiegeltent sensation “Limbo” (which Madonna went to see twice, it’s that good!)
Of course, you already know the formula for romance: beachside views + swanky restaurant + proximity to shopping = the Oaks Plaza Pier Hotel Adelaide.
