Perth, the capital of Western Australia is an exciting city with a lot on offer. From amazing beaches to cosmopolitan restaurants you can find it all here. One thing that might not come so easily is finding romantic ideas for couples to enjoy together. This is a compiled list of romantic things to do in Perth for couples.

1) Visit the Whiteman Park Botanic Garden

If you are looking for romance, then treat your partner to an afternoon at Perth’s botanical gardens. Although several of the large glasshouses are still being built, this is still one of the most beautiful places that you can visit in all of Perth.

2) Take a Romantic Drive in the Hills

The beautiful wine region that extends to the west of Perth’s urban sprawl is perfect for a romantic drive along the winding roads that cut through its vineyards and valleys. Take your time, stop off at some wineries for lunch or dinner, and get lost in each other’s eyes as you sit and admire the surrounding scenery.

3) Cruising the Swan River

There are several ways to enjoy a cruise of Perth’s famous Swan River, from high-class cruises with champagne breakfasts or dinners to chartered boats for two complete with catering and music. Whatever your budget there is something for everyone.

4) Stargaze with a View of the City

Perth has one of the most stunning views in the world and that includes stargazing. When you start to feel like there is no more oxygen left in your lungs, then it’s time for some fresh air and a walk-up Kings Park with its fountains and monuments. From here you can find a quiet spot and look up at the Milky Way with your partner, it doesn’t get better than this.

5) Watch the Surfers at Scarborough Beach

One of Perth’s most beautiful beaches is also one of its busiest which makes it perfect for people watching. If you are lucky enough to be here on a weekday then you will be able to relax and watch the surfers as they ride the waves of this beautiful sandy stretch.

6) Visit Rottnest Island

The home of Perth’s famous Quokka is an amazing place to visit with some excellent restaurants and some truly fantastic views of the Perth skyline as well as several beaches that are perfect for a romantic picnic.

7) Take Your Partner Underwater

If you are a true romantic person then why not take your partner on a scuba diving or snorkeling trip so that they can see life under Perth’s waves with their own eyes. There are several companies in Perth that specialize in underwater adventures, but be prepared to pay for the privilege.

8) Take a Sunset Cruise on the Perth River

There are several companies that offer night-time cruises down the Swan river, but the best of these includes dinner and champagne will be far more expensive than sitting in your own boat with your partner. The views along this well-lit stretch of the river are magnificent and you may even see the odd dolphin swimming.

9) Fly over Perth’s Favourite Landmarks

If you are looking for something to do that includes your partner then why not ask about flying lessons at one of the local aviation schools. Once you have your pilot’s license then there are several aircraft available for hire so that you can fly around some of Perth’s favorite landmarks.

10) Go to the Movies

If you are looking for something low key then why not go on a romantic movie date at one of Perth’s movie theatres. There are several companies that specialize in ‘date nights’ which are designed to make your evening more romantic, but you can also choose any film or move time that you wish.

11) Go to a Perth Fashion Festival

If you and your partner are fashionistas then why not head along to one of the local fashion festivals that happen all over Perth, such as the Kings Park festival or the Fremantle Festival. You can take in two days of designer fashion without having to spend any money and drink lots of champagne.
