Couple and Dog walking along Promenade

Enjoy the view

For a super casual date, grab a coffee and take a seat along Clem Jones Promenade as you soak in the view and get to know each other.

Get cultural

Show off your cultural side and book tickets to a word-class exhibitions at GOMA, Queensland Art Gallery or the Queensland Museum. Continue on for a drink at one of South Bank’s trendy bars to discuss your musings.

Popolo Picnic Basket

Pack a picnic

There’s nothing cosier than a picnic in the parklands and River Quay’s riverfront views are sure to win hearts. Fill any awkward first date silences with live music at Sunday Social on the Green. Grazing hampers are available to pre-book from PopoloAquitaine and The Jetty, so all you need to do is bring the blanket!

See a show

Fancy a comedy, musical or classical performance? You’ll be sure to find a show you can both enjoy at QPAC

Couple at Restaurant

Dining out

Make a booking at newly opened Ma Pa Me, Embers (at The Charming Squire) or OTTO. The abundance of fine dining and casual restaurants on Little Stanley Street, Grey Street and River Quay are sure to impress!

Waffles and Ice Cream at Max Brenner

Sweet spot 

Indulge your sweet tooth at Cowch, Max Brenner or one of the many desserts spots in South Bank. Prefer somewhere quiet? Share an ice cream while sitting on the sand at Streets Beach.

The height of romance

Surprise your date and take a spin on the Wheel of Brisbane.  Pointing out your favourite places in the river city can be a handy conversation starter!

Couple and Dog walking along Arbour

Take a stroll 

Nothing says ‘I want to get to know you’ than 20 questions while strolling along the bougainvillea covered Arbour. For extra romance, wait until sunset when the lights illuminate through the Parklands.
