Date Ideas To Dial Up The Romance On The Gold Coast

Date Ideas To Dial Up The Romance On The Gold Coast

25 Feb 2020

As we’ve learned from the many dating shows that hit our TV (and mobile) screens, true love is best served wining and dining with your sweetheart at a magical beach oasis by night and throwing yourselves into one-of-a-kind experiences by day.

If you’re looking for ideas for a truly magical getaway with your soul mate, then look no further than the Gold Coast – a destination that has it all.


Offering a thriving dining scene, entertaining nightlife and one of the world’s most iconic beaches, Surfers Paradise is a hub for good ol’ fashion fun and romance. Stretching along 3km of stunning coastline, Surfers (like many other Gold Coast suburbs) is also entirely flat, meaning everything is within easy reach by foot, bike or light rail.

To impress even the harshest of date critics, spend your day relaxing on the beach under an umbrella, soaking up the rolling surf and sand before heading to dine.

Looking for something a little more active? At just 600m walk from Cavill Avenue, take your love to new heights with an afternoon conquering Australia’s highest external building climb. With unsurpassed 360-degree views of the Gold Coast (from the beach to beeches) and matching blue zip-up onesies to boot, we’re talking about the SkyPoint Climb.

Whether you (and or your partner) are brave enough to scale the outside of the building or not, be sure to take the thrilling (seriously quick) elevator ride to the 77th floor to experience the breathtaking SkyPoint Observation Deck. Here you can kick back, enjoy a light meal and toast a glass of champagne or two – all while still taking advantage of one of the best vantage points in the city.



For a luxe overnight stay to remember long after you return home, InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort is the place for you.

Located on the northern end of the Gold Coast – a short 30-minute drive from Surfers Paradise – enjoy award-winning culinary delights at the resort’s acclaimed intimate 5-star restaurant, The Fireplace. Think baked gnocchi, high country pork cutlets and seared tuna, all with a signature wood-fired twist. And just a short stroll from the restaurant, enjoy stunning fountain terrace and marina views.


And there you have it – a romantic weekend on the Beautiful Gold Coast that’s sure to win you brownie points with your sweetheart.


We’ll see you soon!
