Get dressed up, get excited, and get out and about in Perth for a date night with your partner (or your Tinder match!).
This is a city brimming with romantic things to do, and a wide variety of activities to enjoy no matter what you’re into.
Here are eight of our top date night ideas in Perth.
Explore the Night Markets
From the gorgeous beachside markets at Scarborough Beach to the vibrant vibes of the Inglewood Night Markets, there are several options to choose from throughout the week and across the city.
This is a fun way to learn more about your date, especially when it comes to their favourite foods, drinks, and treats.
As an added bonus, if the date goes well, you could always pick up some fresh ingredients to invite them over and make a meal at home for the next date.
Watch a movie on a rooftop
Head six stories up for an outdoor movie on a rooftop. This fabulous summer-time activity occurs for five months of the year, showing everything from cult classics to modern blockbusters. And you can even contact the organisers and request your favourite film.
Your ticket price includes a beanbag seat, although there are some deck chairs available for those that find beanbags uncomfortable or restrictive. And for the premium experience, you can purchase Premium Lounge tickets for a reserved double bean lounger and bar service.
Keep in mind, you can bring your own food and snacks, although there are some for sale on site. However, it is a licensed venue so you cannot bring alcoholic drinks.
Snuggle cute animals
Does your partner love cute, cuddly animals? Do both of you?
The Cuddly Animal Farm in Swan Valley makes for one of the most wholesome date ideas in Perth. It is technically marketed as an activity to bring the kids to, but those fluffy lambs, cute piglets and adorable goats are just as loveable no matter your age.
There are also BBQ and picnic facilities on site that you can use for free, so pack a meal to enjoy together and make a day of it.
Attend a Candlelight Concert
Candlelight Concerts have taken the world by storm in recent years. The premise is simple: attend a concert (which is typically themed, such as a certain artist or genre) that is lit entirely by beautiful flickering candles.
The candles and music work together to create a spectacular atmospheric event, making for one of the simplest, yet most romantic, things to do in Perth.
Keep an eye on the Fever schedule and see if there are any shows that would be particularly meaningful for you as a couple and snap up tickets before they sell out.
Explore the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts is a fun and free museum with contemporary exhibitions that change throughout the year. It offers one of the largest art exhibition and gallery spaces in the country, and it regularly showcases local, national, and international artists that you might not see anywhere else.
If you both love art, or are simply looking for a unique Perth date idea that doesn’t require an entry fee, this is the perfect date idea to spend some time exploring and getting to know one another.
Attend a pottery workshop
If you’d rather make art that look at art, a date at Not Yet Perfect pottery studio can be an incredibly fun idea.
There are even specific date night events, which include bubbles, candles and music to set the mood. Plus, you and your date will receive a dessert grazing board – and that’s all without even getting started on the pottery. You’ll learn the art of wheel throwing and hot to create pottery with the wheel, and you’ll have the option of sending your creation off to the kiln for a lasting memento from your date.
The studio also hosts other evenings throughout the year where you can head along to learn how to make a specific item – such as a tumbler and wine bottle holder – so keep an eye on their schedule to book your next romantic date.
Giggle together at a comedy night
There’s nothing quite like laughing together with a loved one, and Perth’s Comedy Lounge offers just that.
There are live stand-up comedy shows every week, as well as a variety of local, national and international comedians throughout the year. There’s a bar in the lounge and a variety of nibbles and sharing plates, and you can level up your ticket with their Date Night Package that includes a reserved table and a bottle of wine or bubbles.
Comedy makes for a fantastic fun date night in Perth, especially as you’ll be laughing about the experience together for many more nights to come.
