Adrenaline has a huge selection of unique things to do for couples across Australia. Whether you’re looking for an amazing holiday adventure or something to do closer to home, they’ve got you covered. Here are a few ideas you might like:
See the world from a different perspective – several hundred metres in the air to be precise! A hot air balloon ride is both serene and thrilling, as you gently float with the breeze (without a sensation of movement), while taking in incredible views. Watch the world below come to life as the sun rises over a picture-perfect landscape. What could be more romantic? Hot air ballooning is available in various locations across Australia, including the Hunter Valley, Gold Coast Hinterland, Cairns, Barossa Valley, Yarra Valley and in the city of Melbourne itself.
In Australia, we’re blessed with some truly stunning coastline and waterways, meaning there’s no shortage of places to take to the water in a kayak. Many companies offer two-person kayaks, so it’s a great way to have fun and enjoy doing something new together. Glide silently along, get up close to nature and watch the world go by in a national park, or up the tempo with a white-water kayaking experience along some of the most scenic sections of the Yarra Valley River in Melbourne. You can even liven up a day in the city by renting a kayak. What better way to start a day in Sydney than by paddling across the famous Harbour and taking in the sights of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House?
Imagine gliding through the Australian outback with the ancient and sacred Uluru in sight, or even zooming through vineyards, spotting wildlife and learning about the winemaking process in the gorgeous Yarra Valley. Both options and more are possible on Segway tours. In fact, there are all kinds of Segway experiences available around Australia, covering Brisbane, Sydney, the Gold Coast, the Blue Mountains and more. Of course, you’ll be given instructions and advice to make you ‘ride-ready’ before you set off. But learning the new skill is part of the fun and it only takes a short time to master and once you do there’s no looking back.
Test your wits and have fun with an escape room experience. You’ll really need to work as a couple to solve puzzles and complete tasks, and you’re bound to have a laugh along the way. With all kinds of themes and even virtual reality options, you’re sure to get swept up in the immersive experience and give it your all to escape before the clock runs down. With locations across the nation, from Adelaide and Melbourne to Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, it’s a great way to brighten up rainy days.
Treat yourself to a dining experience with a difference. How about a romantic picnic on Shark Island, Sydney? You’ll be whisked to the island in a water taxi and, with a picnic basket in hand, be dropped off to enjoy the sights and sounds of the harbour from this scenic spot. Throw down a rug, take your time and relax .
Step aboard the iconic Kookaburra Queen paddle wheeler for what’s sure to be a memorable night. Cruise along the Brisbane River, dine from a delicious seasonal contemporary buffet featuring a selection of fresh international dishes and enjoy the view of some of Brisbane’s best sights. Don’t forget your dancing shoes as live performers will keep you entertained playing some great party music and classics that are sure to have you tapping your toes.
Private helicopter flight for 2
Tick one off the bucket list and feel like a VIP with a private helicopter flight. How about a 20-minute journey over Sydney taking in some truly iconic sights, from the Opera House and Harbour Bridge to the gorgeous beaches? Maybe a private flight over the Barossa Valley, with views of the stunning vineyards suits? Or, make a visit to WA all the more memorable with a private helicopter tour of Perth City, departing Hillarys Boat Harbour, to see the glorious coast over Scarborough Beach, Cottesloe and City Beach from a whole new angle. Flight comes with commentary from your experienced pilot, so it’s easy to spot sights along the way.
