Best First Date Spots in Canberra
Planning a first date can be a challenging task. However, Canberra offers plenty of fun (and romantic) things to do. Whether you are interested in relaxing by a lookout with your date or challenging them to a couple of rounds of table tennis, we have found some of the best options for a first date in the nation’s capital!
THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF AUSTRALIA
The National Gallery of Australia is our country’s largest public collection of art, so if your date is a bit of an artsy type, this is a great option. Admire abstracts from Pollock and Pop-Art by Warhol, whilst you get to know your date. With the focus on the art, but still plenty of room for conversation, why not take your date to the National Gallery of Australia?!
MOUNT AINSLIE LOOKOUT
Admire your city from above at the Mount Ainslie Lookout. Following a walk through the Canberra National park, you and your date will make it up the lookout point. Bring a picnic rug and enjoy the beautiful view. Want to add a bit of romance? Head to the Mount Ainslie Lookout at sunset and watch the sun disappear over the horizon with your date. So romantic…
THE CUPPING ROOM
No, we are not being suggestive with this one – the Cupping Room is a café which sells quality coffee and has a mean all-day breakfast menu. With a passion for flavour, take your date to the Cupping Room and have a chat over a mug of one of their speciality coffees. Not a coffee drinker? This café also has a variety of teas, juices and wines to choose from.
SMASH TABLE TENNIS
Challenge your date to a bit of friendly competition at Smash Table Tennis! Will you emerge victorious? Or will you be defeated by your date? Find out for yourself for only $10. This venue also offers chess, foosball and after 5pm, live music. Smash Table Tennis is the perfect place to get to know your date a bit better, in a relaxed and fun environment.
Questacon is a beloved Canberra icon – and also a great place for a date! Think about it; you get a chance to have a chat as you stroll around the venue, with all the interactive exhibitions being engaging, challenging and fun enough to keep things interesting. And at less than $50 for tickets for the both of you, it is a relatively cheap date option as well!
