DISCOVER THE STREET ART OF THE CITY – OR JUST THE CITY

If the movies have taught us anything about romance, it’s the joy of dating. Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy did the Before sunrise, Before sunset and Before midnight trilogy about it, and Chris Rock tried his hand with Top five, too – and yes, the list goes on

Brisbane is full of great places to walk around, so you won’t run out of options. And, even though you and your significant other have walked the sidewalk together more than once, our city continues to change and evolve. So spotting new additions to the city is part of the fun.

That said, we’re especially mind blowing the thought of mocking, chatting, and feasting on Brissie’s thriving street art scene. You will get to know your city and your walking partner better and you will always have something interesting to tell.

PUT ON YOUR SKATES

This summer, when we tell you and your partner to put on your skates at HOTA, Home of the Arts, we don’t just recommend that you visit the venue’s imposing new art gallery as soon as you can. . In fact, we literally mean putting on your boots on wheels, as the Gold Coast spot turns its concert lawn into a roller skating rink.

The pop-up is open to skaters of all ages – Xanadu fans and Whip it faithful included. Here you will also be riding with Surfers Paradise as a scenic backdrop (as there is so much more to do on the Goldie than just hitting the beach).

Hours of operation change daily until the rink ends on Sunday January 23, and adult admission will cost $ 18 each.

PAIR COCKTAILS AND ITALIAN BITES BY THE RIVER

A taste of the Mediterranean took to Riverbar and Kitchen this summer, with the Eagle Street Pier spot hosting an Italian-themed pop-up until the end of February. Every day of the season, you and your favorite person can sit under umbrellas, pick up Peronis in the beer cart, relax in the Amalfi-inspired decor, and soak up the views of the river. And, if you get the gang together and pretend you’re all on vacation, you can all sip a beer, Aperol, orange, and lemonade spritz.

You can also feast your taste buds with Italian bites, the menu changing every month – starting with pancetta nuggets, kingfish crudo, and octopus bruschetta in December.

Admission is free, but it is recommended to reserve a table in advance.

PICNIC ON THE RIVER WITH YOUR APPOINTMENT, COMPANIONS AND DOG

Picnicking by the water in Brisbane is a proven way to spend an afternoon, but now you can also picnic above the water. The latter is by the Danish company GoBoat, which sails its 18-foot-long, dog-friendly vessels from Kangaroo Point and Breakfast Creek.

The company aims to make all of boating more accessible to everyday people, and its Scandinavian-designed vessels are slow, easy to use, and do not require a boating license, allowing for boat sessions. fun and hassle-free navigation. .

HUG A KOALA

When Brisbane first went into lockdown in 2020, watching cute animals via live broadcasts became a core business. In fact, it was one of the ways we all added joy to our days. We’ve been free from stay-at-home rules for almost six months now, but there’s no reason you can’t apply the same idea to your next date.

Everything looks rosier when there’s a cuddly creature around, after all. This holds true even when the going gets tough enough anyway, like all the time you spend with your significant other should. So take the trip to Lone Pine, get up close to the wildlife, and you and your partner can cuddle a koala, hold an owl, touch snakes, and see everything from kangaroos, wombats and echidnas to birds of prey, turtles, and even the Tasmanian devils.

And no, there’s nothing wrong with playing tourist in your own town – or getting homesick if you haven’t been to Lone Pine since you were a kid.
