10 Unique and Affordable Date Ideas When in Perth

What can I do with my partner in Perth?

Here are some of the most unique date ideas that you can try the next time you go out with your special someone!

We have activities lined up for different types of couples. Foodies and their significant others can enjoy the Farmer’s Market.

Active couples can hike well-traversed or undiscovered trails. Find more date inspiration below.

1. Eat your heart out at a Farmer’s Market

Eat your heart out at a Farmer’s Market

Food is the way to everyone’s heart. Stroll around and grab some fresh fruits, vegetables, and even affordable meals found at Farmer’s Markets near your area.

You get to support local suppliers while eating healthy at the same time. Better yet, make a meal and bring it with you on your next date!

Just make sure to consume them while they’re fresh, or you might need to find a gastroenterologist for upset stomachs.

2. Hike to get your heart pumping

Perth is home to amazing coastlines. You’ll never be at a loss to find ones that are popular and the ones that are a little secluded.

Your lungs are going to enjoy the fresh air while you hike around. Plus, cardiologists always recommend some physical exercises to keep hearts healthy.

3. See the universe at the Perth Observatory

Dream the night away while you gaze into the heavens. Just 25 kilometres out of the city, the Perth Observatory is your perfect place to ponder in awe while you peer into the universe.

You can’t enjoy this marvelous sight with blurry vision though. You might need to check your eyesight first!

4. Freaky in the Freo Prison

Give yourself a little scare—safely, of course—by joining the Torchlight Tours held by the Fremantle Jail every Wednesday and Friday night. Tickets are $28 apiece, so make sure to hold hands and hug each other to avoid the jitters.

5. Retro Gaming in Style

Nostalgia Box is Australia’s only museum that features video game consoles. Pop right in and play games that challenge your physical and mental coordination.

If you’re looking for a bar environment, the Palace Arcade in Victoria Park and Northbridge has a selection of old-school arcade games. Pay $20 on Wednesdays for unlimited gaming, and you’re good to go!

6. Aim for that hole in one

Aim for that hole in one

Mini golf courses are popping up all over Perth. They’re perfect for couples’ date nights, especially if you need some help with your form.

Some immediately come to mind, such as the Wembley Mini Golf Course, the Glowing Rooms 3D Mini Golf in South Freo, and Wanneroo Botanic Gardens Mini Golf. You can even get your kids playing at the Chillisaurus Mini Golf in Merriwa.

Playing too hard can cause strain. Check with a chiropractor if you do experience any.

7. Admire the arts

Even if you only doodle on your paper, you’re bound to appreciate the exhibits found in the Art Gallery of Western Australia. Walk around and impress your date with your unique interpretations of the artwork.

You can even visit the rooftop bar and marvel at the stunning city lights. 

8. Make your own gin

Visit the Republic of Fremantle for its gin school, and distill your own gin which you can take home. Learn everything about the craft while sipping on a gin and tonic upon arrival.

You can even buy drinks at the bar if you’re feeling particularly thirsty!

9. Bowl your night away

Bowl your night away

Aim for a strike and enjoy a night of bowling with your date. With bowling centres all over Perth, you’re bound to find one that suits your fancy.

The floors can get a little slippery though, so take care when you aim your bowling ball. Your pain specialist will be thankful you did.

10. Laugh your hearts out

Laughter is the best medicine, and Perth seems to agree. The Comedy Lounge and the Brisbane Hotel’s Comedy Club are some of the best places to check out upcoming and established comedians.

Wheezing too hard after laughing? You might need to visit an ENT specialist if it’s causing you problems.
