Great Places & Ideas for Fun Dates

Posted: 2pm 06 May 2020

Are you trying to find unique places or ideas for fun dates? If so, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together a bunch of top spots, entertaining activities, and upcoming events perfect for couples and prospective partners alike.

Whether you’re wanting to make a good impression on a first date, planning something out of the ordinary for your next date night, or looking to rekindle the romance factor of your long-term relationship, make your date a memorable one by visiting Moreton Bay Region.

Beach Ideas for Fun Dates

Taking a potential love interest to the beach is generally a foolproof choice for a first date, unless of course the person you’re looking to woo dislikes sand and surf, in which case it’s best to simply grab a table at one of the waterside cafes to settle in for a good meal, or a coffee.

In Redcliffe, you can laze in the sun and play in the water at Margate Beach, Scarborough Beach and Suttons Beach, or enjoy a bite to eat across the road from the sandy stretches at any one of the numerous cafes and restaurants which line the waterside.

Bribie Island beaches also offer a great date escape from the city. Woorim Beach is away from the hustle-and-bustle on the ocean-side of the island, while Bongaree Beach is right across from the island’s main tourist strip and is lined with cafes and shops. It also offers visitors walking tracks and picnic areas to enjoy.

How About a High Seas Adventure!

Would your date rather get out onto the water, than go in it?

Surprise your date with a day out aboard the Eye-Spy eco-certified catamaran. Cruises with Brisbane Whale Watching run from June to October boarding from Redcliffe Jetty.

Live Entertainment Dates

If you’re after ideas for fun dates to get your partner out on the town or to the waterside, check what’s happening at Eatons Hill Hotel, or Sandstone Point Hotel. These venues are great for a delicious lunch or dinner, drinkies or dance date. Both establishments host big entertainment acts throughout the year, ranging from international touring artists to trivia nights.

Wining, Dining, Coffee, or Drink Dates

Here’s a couple of no-pressure first date spots, as well as more romantic rendezvous to wine and dine your date:

Mon Komo Hotel is a modern and vibrant Redcliffe restaurant and bar providing al fresco and indoor dining across from the water, great for a casual dinner, or drink date.

Wheelhouse Coffee serves wholesome breakfast and lunch dishes in Lawnton, perfect for a no-pressure daytime first date.

Mercure Clear Mountain Lodge Dining is ideal for upping the romance factor of your date. This hinterland venue features a rustic fireplace, indoor and al fresco dining, 5-star meals and gorgeous views.

Need to rekindle the romance? Surprise your partner with a vineyard tour, degustation dinner, or a picnic amongst the grapevines at Ocean View Estates.

Events Great for a Date

Here are a few events throughout the year that make for fun date ideas in the Moreton Bay Region:

Bring your date to the Strawberry Festival at Sandstone Point Hotel to enjoy deliciously sweet strawberry concoctions of all varieties.

Roll out a picnic rug and kick-back together enjoying live music by the beach at Scarborough Sounds.

Treat your date to seafood sensations at Sandstone Point’s Oyster Festival.

The Moreton Bay Food & Wine Festival, showcasing local produce and wines and featuring it's very own pop-up dessert festival within. It's a pet-friendly event with a range of food trucks, live entertainment and a beach teepee area.

Do you have to bring the kids along? Why not head out to the Redcliffe KiteFest for a day of market stalls, food vendors, live entertainment on-stage as well as a professional and public kite flying arena. Finish the day off with the new 'After Dark' program that features a jet ski stunt show and a fireworks finale!

Is your date a Disney fan? If so, they may love to enjoy an outdoor movie screening. ‘Movie in the Park’ are free, council-run events hosted throughout the year in our local parks and by our beaches. Keep tabs on our What’s On page to find out when and where the next big screen movie will be happening.

Ideas for Fun Dates in the Sun

Sweeney Reserve is a large, sprawling park great for a walk in peace and quiet, or for a picnic by the river.

Pelican Park in Clontarf is perfect for watching the sunset and catching sight of pelicans.

Cedar Creek is a lovely swimmable creek and an ideal place for a picnic.
