  • In a city rich with romance, choosing the top 10 most romantic activities in Melbourne is a challenge, but the number one spot goes to the somewhat underrated Fairfield Park Boathouse. Rowing down the Yarra River in an historic boat with a lunch prepared screams romance which is why it's a favorite for those wanting to propose. A close second is one of the highest viewing platforms in the world at Eureka Skydeck. Come at dusk and see the sun drop beneath the horizon.

    Seeing cute animals is always are good way to create a bit of romance, and this can be done at the Melbourne Zoo, which also doubles as a music venue in the summer nights. The Collingwood Children's Farm is a more hands on look, while the Melbourne City Penguins Day/Night Cruises is a widely unknown way to see cute little penguins so close to the city. The city circle tram is a throwback to yesteryear, as is the Puffing Billy which is generally regarded as one of finest preserved steam railways in the world.

    The Fitzroy gardens are a romantic spot to have a picnic only minutes from the CBD, while taking a champagne picnic to Flemington Racecourse is one of the iconic activities that Melburnians like to do.

    Finally we think seeing a band, in a cozy pub with a few pints of beer is also a uniquely way to be romantic in Melbourne.
