If you haven't yet gotten around to booking something for Valentine's Day, don't panic - here are some great last minute Valentine ideas for a few of Australia's major cities.

 Watson's Bay Sydney


Spend a romantic evening watching a film at the Rooftop Cinema above Curtin House in Melbourne's CBD. Sit back with a cocktail from the rooftop bar while enjoying the bright lights of Melbourne and a great movie.


Escape the overcrowded city restaurants and pay a visit to either Chowder Bay or Watsons Bay, on either side of the Port Jackson inlet. Find a spot for a picnic during the day and soak up the beautiful waterside scenery, or visit one of the many quality restaurants in the evening.


Have dinner at one of Paddington's popular restaurants like Montrachet or Grappino, before taking in the breathtaking views of Brisbane City with a stroll along La Trobe Terrace. Stop off at The Lark and enjoy a couple of Brisbane's best cocktails on one of the cozy couches upstairs.


Pay a visit to the fashionable Duchess in Perth for a romantic dinner for two accompanied by live jazz music in the background. Book before 13 February and receive a glass of champagne and chocolate dipped strawberries on the house.
