Posted by admin | Regional Dating Ideas | Thursday 12 March 2009 3:12 pm

If you’re through with traditional dates like dinner and a movie, perhaps it’s time to start thinking outside of the box. Here’s a list of some unique and exciting date ideas that will cater to your wild side!

Cycle Sydney and The Rocks

There are all sorts of places around Sydney to hire a bike for the afternoon. Ride by some of Sydney’s most famous landmarks including the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge and then head to The Rock for a pint in one of Sydney’s oldest pubs!

Surfing Lessons

It’s ok if you’ve never learned how to surf – there’s no time like the present to start trying. Head to Sydney’s Bondi Beach where a fully-qualified surfing instructor can help you learn to ride the waves. You’ll both most likely end the day a little sore and slightly sun burnt, but that’s when massage oil comes in handy.

Scenic Flights

Scenic flights are not cheap but they sure do offer a unique view of the area. Consider taking a flight over the Blue Mountains or a helicopter ride over Sydney. For a real treat, take a hot air balloon ride from Hunter Valley and enjoy a champagne breakfast high above the clouds.

Whale Watching

Experience the magnificent whales close up when a large number of Humpback and Southern Right Whales begin their migration north along the Australian coastline to their breeding grounds in Queensland. Since the whales travel so closely to Sydney’s coastline, boats can easily get close enough for you to get some great views of these incredible beasts.

Sydney Harbour Jet Boats

If you’re ready for some extreme fun, then jet boating is for you. You’ll experience Sydney Harbour at speeds you never thought possible as the boat makes incredible spins and stops. You’ll hardly have time to catch your breath.

Harbour Bridge Walk

Haven’t climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge yet? What are you waiting for? This exciting adventure isn’t just for tourists. View Sydney Harbour and all its famous landmarks from this unique and breathtaking vantage point. Grab that special someone and get ready for the thrill of a lifetime!

Sydney Kayaking Tours

Spend the day out on the water with a passionate and informative guide. The calm waters of the inner harbour are the perfect place to enjoy the scenery and sunshine.
