Out of the box activities for those who donít do ordinary
Valentines Day draws its history from both Christian and ancient Roman tradition, but today it's all about romance, love and Hallmark cards. Whether you fit into the 'countdown-to-Valentine's-Day' bucket or the can't-wait-till-the-day-is-over' category, here are some "out of the box" activities to do on the day of love.
Ferris Wheel Dining

What could be more romantic then taking your loved one to the iconic Luna Park Sydney and partaking of a 3 course degustation meal with matching wines? Not only will you enjoy some delectable dishes such as 'Twice-cooked lamb shoulder with merges sausage, heirloom carrot and caraway puree' or 'Pan-seared kingfish fillet with grilled langoustine, caramelised endive, Karbala vanilla and orange emulsion with Bottarga', but you will have a private view of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Anzac Bridge and the city.
For those who have a creative flair make your way to Maker Play Date. You can explore your romantic and creative side with their love-themed crafty tasks. Impress your partner with LED paper rose hearts or write a cash register poem. Be surrounded with various makerspace stations and add some craft to your courtship.
There will also be some live music by Queen Porter Stomp. A mix of jazz, folk and world music, this group packs a punch.
Cost is free and the event will be located at Haymarket Library, 744 George St ,Sydney.

Not everyone loves Valentine's Day, and as I said, I have something for everyone. The Australian Museum is presenting Culture Up Late Ė Anti Valentines Day. With VR (Virtual reality) experiences, short and sweet tours, hands on workshops, live music and performances, there's something to make every anti-valentiner's heart skip a beat.
There will be events such as Heart Dissection Workshops(AM scientists will actually dissect a pigs heart), or how about the Couples Game? Are you convinced your blissful union holds no secrets? Why don't you test that in public? This is definitely a game for you and your soul mate. If that isn't enough for you, you can get arts and crafty and make a voodoo doll of your ex. AM aim to educate, entertain and excite and this event will do all three.
