8 Super Fun Outdoor Dates To Try This Summer!


We’re giving the phrase “let’s take it outside” a whole new, much nicer, and even slightly romantic meaning.

This sweet little listicle of the best outdoor dates on the Sunshine Coast is gonna have you and your special someone out and about all summer long.

1. Outdoor Cinema

Hit up the Starry Nights outdoor cinema in Eumundi. The movie selection isn’t huge, but let’s be honest, when you’re canoodling in your car below a starry night, it doesn’t really matter what movie is playing.

2. One Word: GELATO.

What’s cuter than two people in love sharing a creamy gelato on a warm summer’s day? Absolutely nothing. Here’s our list of the best gelato on the coast to get you drooling.

3. Watch The Sunrise

We know it’s cliché, but that’s because it’s epic. Making the effort to get up early and get your butt to a breathtaking sunrise never gets old. It’s super romantic and you get to extend the date to coffee and breakfast afterwards—winning! Here’s 7 of the best sunrise spots on the Sunshine Coast for inspo.

4. Order A Picnic

Getaway Pantry do awesome little picnic hampers, including champagne for those special kinda dates. They package it up really pretty and deliver it to wherever you want on the Coast. It’s like glamorous picnicking… glamnicking?

5. Hit Up Woodford Folk Festival

Woodford Folk Festival only comes around once a year. This incredibly huge multi-stage festival will have you and your spesh someone dancing to music from the furthest corners of the globe, feasting on a plethora of cuisines, browsing markets, and marvelling at street performers. It’s different, it’s fun, and it can extend from a one-day date to a five-day date… take your pick.

6. Go Skydiving

If you want to really impress (or perhaps just scare the pants off) your date, get adventurous and go skydiving with Skydive Ramblers. It’s not just an adrenalin junkies dream date, the views are incredible and you actually land right on the beach.

7. Romantic SUPing

Rent yourself two SUPs (they’re stand up paddleboards, in case you aren’t down with the lingo) and take a self-guided paddle up Noosa River, Maroochy River, or Pumicestone Passage to name a few.

8. Lawn bowls group date

Dates aren’t always for two, right? Double date, triple date, even quadruple date it up and head to your local bowls club for beer, West Coast Coolers, and lawn bowls.
