Unique Valentine's Day Ideas

10 February 2022

If you haven't locked in your plans for the most romantic day of the year, explore these uniquely Fremantle date ideas and let the celebration of love begin!

1. Treat yourselves to a boujie overnight stay

Wine and dine at some of Freo's finest, then retreat to luxurious Warders Hotel in the heart of Fremantle. Choose one of their terrace room accommodation packages and you can enjoy a complimentary charcuterie plate on arrival, pre-dinner drinks at Gimlet, dinner at Emily Taylor, breakfast at Sailing for Oranges, plus all-inclusive minibar, still and sparkling water on tap, and late checkout at 11am. (valid until 29 February):

2. Sip champagne at sunset on a luxury catamaran

What’s more romantic than awe-inspiring WA sunsets, chilled out tunes, and cold drinks? As day turns into night, enjoy the sea breeze and a spot of cheeky hand holding on the deck of Freo’s distinctive yellow Charter 1 catamaran.

3. Indulge in Oysters with BYO bubbles and peak people-watching

OK, they won’t be open Valentine’s Day, but a date at Douzaine is a must this summer!  Fremantle’s new pop-up oyster bar is the perfect place to share love (open Fri – Sun). Grab a light, bright, crisp Champagne, Riesling or Chablis from Wise Child Wine Store (10% off for Douzaine’s customers) and watch the world go by from this little piece of Southern France on Cantonment Street.

4. Get steamy at South Beach Sauna

Invigorate yourselves in a beautiful Finnish sauna looking out over iconic South Beach ($25 pp, 1 hour) and leave feeling refreshed, reset and alive – ready for beach strolls or whatever spontaneous excitement South Freo throws at you.

5. Afternoon dips and evening sips at Rotto

Rottnest's Beautiful beaches and adorable quokkas are just a quick ferry trip from Freo across the sparkling Indian Ocean. Squeeze in an early lunch at Gage Roads, then head over to Perth's favourite holiday island and impress your date with swimming, surfing or snorkelling. You can be back where you started in time for sunset beers and pizzas at the coolest beer shed in town.

6. Discover why ‘Social Darts’ is having a moment

Flight Club isn’t darts as we’ve ever known it before. Fast and exciting multi-player games, bespoke cocktails, delicious sharing boards, and ridiculously tasty pizzas make this quality date material! 

7. Snuggle up with your lover at the movies

It’s a classic for a reason! Freo’s fully licensed art house cinema Luna on SX is screening Bob Marley's: One Love, along with a complimentary drink upon arrival, so you can raise a glass to the legend, his music, philosophy, and his everlasting message of harmony this Valentine's Day.

8. Trust classic flowers and chocolates

For those 'classic' Valentine's gifts, pick up some flowers at Twisted Tulip or The Flower Hound or pick up tasty, pretty chocolates from Coal River Farm.

9. Learn Swedish massage together

Book your spots on Body Riches' 4-hour workshop (from $250) - 24 March 2024 - to be part of an intimate, nourishing mini retreat. During a connected afternoon with your loved one, you'll learn classic Swedish massage techniques and leave feeling ready to keep practising with your partner at home.

10. Share a giggle at Fremantle Comedy Lounge

Fremantle Comedy Lounge promises belly laughs, views across Freo's famous cappuccino strip and easy access to Sailing for Oranges’ Mediterranean bites, great cocktails and freshly brewed in house beer from a QR code at your table – you won’t have to leave your date’s side.

11. Show them your adventurous side

Love will be in the air as you parasail 100m up in the air and see Freo’s picturesque coastline from a new perspective. Or cling to each other through exhilarating 270° spins and thrilling jet boat manoeuvres in Freo's iconic harbour. Heck, do both! Show your adventurous side this Valentine’s Day with a Cicerello's Jet Adventures gift card.
