Heading to Perth with a loved one soon and looking for some fun, romantic things you can do together while you're there? Although you may have booked a Perth hotel online, it can be difficult to plan extravagant activities in advance when you're visiting someplace new. Luckily, there are lots of great date venues in and around Perth that you can enjoy without any hassle. Your partner will love that you've gone to the effort of coming up with a sweet way to show you care, and you'll enjoy exploring all the fun things that Perth has to offer with your favourite person. From picnics to island day trips and outdoor cinemas, you'll find a romantic date idea in Perth for every budget. Read on for six suggestions that will sweep your loved one off of his or her feet.

Wander Public Art Walks

Perth's CBD and surrounding suburbs offer up some amazing, free public artworks for visitors to enjoy. With love sometimes being a little like street art in that you never know when it's going to spring up, a walk through the city exploring artworks and sculptures can be a sweet way to spend time with your loved one. The East Perth Public Art Walk is only five minutes from the CBD and showcases the talents of landscape architects, urban designers and various artists. From cool building design to funky street furniture and inspired works of art, there is a variety of modern design to admire throughout this showcase. For a change of pace, the Federation Heritage Art Walk offers a colonial history of the region with an enlightening journey through the past of the Mandurah and Peel areas.

Enjoy an Outdoor Movie

Due to the abundance of sunshine and the great climate in Perth, a variety of outdoor cinemas have popped up around the city. A romantic way to spend a balmy evening on your next trip, why not head to one of the venues and catch a flick under the stars? You can watch a classic or latest release movie at the Moonlight Cinema at Kings Park Botanic Garden or snack on freshly-made wood-fired pizzas at the Camelot Outdoor Cinema in Mosman Park. Alternatively, Bankwest Movies by Burswood is run by volunteers and is offered in three locations: Curtin, Burswood and Bassendean. As the events are sponsored by Bankwest, all profits from the movies are donated to community organisations and charities that help to improve the lives of kids with health issues or physical disabilities. This means you can catch a flick and support kids in crisis at the same time — an extra special feel-good factor for any date.

Picnic at Kings Park

Nature lovers and foodies alike will enjoy spending some relaxing hours at Kings Park. Home to Perth's Botanic Gardens as well as spectacular views of the city and river from the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, Kings Park is the perfect spot to romance your loved one. Pack a good bottle of wine, some yummy snacks and a picnic blanket built for two, and you're ready for a low-key yet romantic treat.

Watch the Sunset

Watching a glorious sunset is a truly romantic pastime that couples can enjoy together when visiting Perth. Head to popular Cottesloe Beach to admire the stunning beauty of the West Australian sunset over the water while feasting on fresh fish and chips, or pick out a spot at a local hotel and enjoy watching the sunset while you drink a fabulous crisp wine from the Margaret River region. However you choose to enjoy nature's beauty, you're sure to be impressed by the sunsets in the west.

Visit Beachside Fremantle

Located about 20 minutes south-west of Perth, the port of Fremantle sits where the Swan River meets the Indian Ocean. "Freo", as it's affectionately called by the locals, is rich with maritime history and plenty of fun activities. Stroll hand-in-hand with your loved one through the popular Fremantle Markets and shop for art, crafts and fresh fruit and veg, or check out the Maritime Museum, old Fremantle Jail or the local Museum and Arts Centre.

Take a Day Trip to Rottnest Island

Another way to thrill your partner is with a romantic day trip to Rottnest Island. Take the short ferry ride across to this popular tourist spot where you can enjoy beautiful beaches and bays and a relaxed, uncrowded atmosphere. With no cars allowed on the island you can walk or cycle together without being bothered by noise or road hazards. This peaceful spot offers the perfect location for some stress-free couple time.
