Whether you’re having a casual date with someone new or you’re trying to impress a long-time lover, it pays to mix things up! After all, there’s only so many times you can do “dinner and a movie”. That’s why we’ve pulled together a list of the most epic date ideas in Sydney.

If you’re lucky enough to live in Sydney, you’re never short of things to do. That said, there are only so many times you can walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge or see the Opera House. Level up your date night game with these fun and unique ideas for a date night in Sydney that you’ll remember forever!

1. Experience a Jazz Night

In the heart of the city, you’ll find a venue that combines two of the best things in the world into one fantastically fun venue; jazz and French food. Restaurant Hubert is located right Sydney’s city centre and features live jazz in the dining room in the evenings from Monday to Thursday.

This is one of those date ideas in Sydney that you won’t forget in a hurry. Not only is the cheese-filled menu absolutely divine, but the vibe is also intimate yet lively. Be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment!

2. Go Kayaking

There’s nothing like getting out in nature, especially together! This is one of the more adventurous date ideas in Sydney, and it’s definitely among the most fun. While kayaking, you can burn some serious calories and see beautiful new landscapes, all while bonding with your significant other. Bonus points if you succeed in capsizing your partner!

Try kayaking at Manly Kayak Centre. Start from just outside Manly Wharf, but don’t forget to book! Round out an active afternoon kayaking with a walk along the beach or a quick dip.

3. Take a Boozy Art Class

When it comes to quirky date ideas in Sydney, this one’s a little different! Let your creativity run free with some vino-fuelled artistry at Cork & Chroma in Sydney.

Here, you’ll learn to paint a scene on canvas together while sipping on your own BYO drink of choice. It’s a great bonding activity – plus, you’ll end the night with an artistic souvenir to take home!

4. Try Bouldering

Not all date ideas in Sydney have to be at night, though. You can boulder day or night at BlocHaus Bouldering in Marrickville. Bouldering is similar to rock climbing, but rather than high climbs, think thick, padded mats, lower walls and plenty of obstacles to keep things interesting!

This facility has a range of climbs to suit everyone, from beginners to the pros. Climb side-by-side with your date or get them to cheer you on from the sidelines and help you find the best bouldering path!

5. Go on a Sydney Staycation

Travel is a little tricky at the moment but if you want to mix things up a little, why not try a Sydney staycation? Relax by a hotel pool, have a cocktail or two or get a massage; Sydney is your oyster!

For a relaxing Sydney staycation, the Swissotel Sydney makes an excellent stay and is centrally located right in the heart of the city, with nearby restaurants and shops an easy walking distance away. Or, for a luxury staycation, splash out and stay at The Langham Sydney. It has a magnificent heated indoor pool and a decadent high tea option to try.

6. Test Your Culinary Skills with a Cooking Class

Spice things up with a cooking class with your date, while brushing up on your culinary skills at the same time. Try a class at The Essential Ingredient, right in the heart of Surry Hills. From pasta-making to classes specialising in certain food groups like seafood, you can try it all here.

 7. Go Foraging for Mushrooms

If you’re after cute date ideas in Sydney that are a little different, this one is for you! Although it’s a little further afield, it’s well worth it! Learn how to forage for wild food and medicine on a foraging tour with Diego Bonetto.

You can get out in nature and bond with your date, safe in the knowledge that if you ever get lost in the wilderness, you’ll know just what to eat without poisoning yourself!
