Finding something different to do on Valentine's Day in Adelaide can be a challenge.

Everyone books to eat in a restaurant, so if you have left it late there may be little choice. Giving a box of chocolates has become far too cliche, and just taking your partner for a walk on a beach might leave you looking like a cheapskate.

This year the Adelaide Botanic Gardens have come up with a lovely idea for romantic couples. Their widely acclaimed International Rose Garden is a beautiful space containing over 5,000 perfumed roses in a glorious range of colours. Situated near to the magnificent Bicentennial Conservatory (free entry), the International Rose Garden is a blaze of colour in the warmer months.

On this Valentine's Day Saturday February 14, you are invited to the rose garden in the Botanic Gardens to publicly declare your love to your chosen one. Write an anonymous love note to leave on display for your paramour, and dedicate your favourite rose with a personalised helium balloon. It's all free, and everything you will need is provided.

Participants can also enter the draw to win a double pass to Moonlight Cinema's Valentine's screening of Breakfast at Tiffany's, and a voucher for the Botanic Gardens Restaurant.

After you have lulled your partner into a state of bliss, why not settle down for a picnic in the beautiful surroundings of the Botanic Gardens in Adelaide. Call in to a market or providore first, and stock up on a hamper of delicious goodies, then add a bottle of a bubbly to suit your tastes. Alternatively the Botanic Gardens can provide a range of picnic hampers if you pre-book online.

First Creek Wetlands - A Cool Valentine's Day Place


The Adelaide Botanic Gardens is a beautiful setting for couples in love, and what better way to spend the day with your Valentine? There are plenty of attractions including the spectacular First Creek Wetlands, the unique displays of the Museum of Economic Botany, the Palm House, the Sacred Lotus in the Nelumbo Pond, or you can just lie on the grass and look at the clouds as you murmur naughty things to your playmate.

If the urge to elope or or break for the boudoir hasn't hit by then, there are other possibilities to amuse you for the remainder of the day.

Of course if you are single this isn't going to work so well, but we do have several suggestions how even singles can enjoy Valentine's Day. Never let it be said that singles can't have fun!
