Visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
Only 20 minutes from the CBD, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is a must-visit attraction for animal-loving couples, boasting the world’s largest koala residence. See, meet and interact with lovable koalas for a day out you and your partner won’t forget.

There’s always an exciting live performance to catch in Brisbane. QPAC, Brisbane Powerhouse, BCEC and The Tivoli are just a few of the city’s top venues, offering everything from weekly live music and stand-up comedy to world-class theatre and dance.
Discover Culture and History
If you and your partner love viewing art and diving into the past, South Bank is the place to go in Brisbane. Home of the Queensland Cultural Centre, South Bank offers a relaxing afternoon of discovery in the Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Museum and Sciencentre, and Queensland Art Gallery.
Wind Down in Brisbane Parks
Perfect for romantic strolls, picnics and sunbathing in the sun. Brisbane’s parks include the South Bank Parklands, Roma Street Parkland and Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, which boast the best garden arrangements in the city. Alternatively, visit Kangaroo Cliffs Park, which offers stunning views right across the cityscape.
Shop in Style at Queen Street Mall
The Brisbane shop experience is second to none. Queen Street Mall is a bustling hub of designer brands, fashion houses, jewellery stores and gift shops, offering everything you could want if you’re looking to spoil your partner to a Valentine’s Day gift or two. Be warned: you may leave with more shopping bags on your arm than intended.
Explore the Markets
Another way to shop in Brisbane is in the markets. This Valentine’s Day, in particular, the popular Brisbane Markets on Sherwood Road will be more colourful than ever for this year’s Flower Market – the ultimate opportunity to browse, snatch up some bargains and treat your wife or girlfriend to the perfect bouquet.
Hop on a Brisbane River Tour
Nothing screams romance like a lazy sightseeing tour of the city from the shimmering Brisbane River. River tours take place daily, offering a whole new perspective of Brisbane with many tours providing onboard drinks and candlelit evening dining experiences.

Not a fan of boats? Gaze over the Brisbane River and across the Brisbane CBD by hopping on The Wheel of Brisbane. Located in South Bank, The Wheel of Brisbane is a memorable 15-minute sightseeing experience for couples with private VIP gondola packages available.
Experience Story Bridge Adventure Climb
For a more thrilling way to take in the cityscape, don’t miss the Adventure Climb experience on Story Bridge, allowing you to scale up the bridge’s structure before gazing over the city from 80 metres in the air.
