A Hot Date In Melbourne

Leave a comment

The following is our guide and tips for an authentic Melbourne date.

A classic Melbourne-style date begins with a picnic lunch in the park, in any of the many gorgeous parks in town. No matter where you are, you’ll be able to find a picturesque park, lay down a picnic mat and enjoy a relaxed afternoon in the shade. We recommend visiting the Carlton Gardens  located on Rathdowne Street.

For dessert, and the quintessential Carlton experience, visiting any of the many original Italian gelati shops on Lygon Street is a must. Out of the many flavors to be tasted we recommend the love-chocolate.

Having had a good lunch and dessert, and to escape some of the summer heat, take a walk down the Melbourne Museum which is right next to the Carlton Gardens, for an unforgettable experience down history’s path.

Neither would you want to miss out on the IMAX theatre experience; the third largest screen in the world. Be sure not to argue over which movie to watch though…


After the movie, a romantic stroll or swing, or both, through the neighbouring Carlton Gardens… Photos are only illustrative…

After a fun filled afternoon we suggest drinks. You can visit any of the little Italian places on Lygon street, or stop by the deli and impress your date with your culinary skills by designing your own tapas.
