A Scenic Helicopter flight over Melbourne

For those with more adventurous partners, a scenic helicopter flight over Melbourne will provide the thrills you’re looking for. View the Docklands, the MCG, Rod Laver Arena, Eureka Tower and the city skyline from the air. This will be an experience your partner will be talking about for years.

For the More Traditional

If you and your partner are more the traditional types, a night at one of Melbourne’s many 5 star hotels is hard to go past. Check in early and stock the fridge with romantic foods like, oysters, seafood, chocolate and strawberries and make sure there’s a bottle of French champagne chilling on ice. Organising a couple’s massage in your room is also a great way to set the mood.

Do Something Really Different

Take the one you love to the Chill on Ice Lounge and Ski Lodge and indulge in one of their special Valentine’s Day packages. Choose from a package that includes drinks and a photo or go for the premium dinner package. The Ice Lounge is carved out of 50 tonnes of ice and kept at a constant -10 degrees Celsius. A fan forced blizzard will ensure you have to snuggle up close and what better way to warm up afterwards than in one of the nearby luxury hotels in the Melbourne CBD.

Have a Wild Time on Valentine’s Day

For the animal lover, Werribee Open Range Zoo offers open vehicle adventure tours. Set alongside the picturesque Werribee River, the tours immerse you in the sounds, smells and sights of the Savannah. You’ll be surrounded by rhinos, deer, zebras, giraffes and antelopes and only 30 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. Book dinner and some Melbourne accommodation and your animal loving partner will have the ultimate Valentine’s Day experience.
