Thinking of something unique to do each year to mark that special day you met or married is no mean feat. We’ve put our thinking caps on and come up with some great anniversary ideas that will make your anniversary amazing.
Celebrate on Top
What could be more romantic than watching the sun rise or set from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge? Follow it up with an indulgent breakfast or romantic dinner at one of the many harbourside restaurants or cafes around Sydney Harbour. Top it off with a romantic night at the stunning Castlereagh Boutique Hotel which offers luxurious Sydney CBD accommodation at affordable rates. Visit Bridge Climb to choose from a range of Sydney Harbour Bridge climbing experiences including a Wedding Climb where you can tie the knot or renew your vows surrounded by one of the most spectacular views in the world.
Dinner with a Difference
Melbourne’s Colonial Tramcar Restaurant gives a new meaning to the term ‘meals on wheels’. Sharing a meal has always been the perfect way to spend some intimate time together but on your anniversary you want to take it to the next level. The Tramcar Restaurants are the first travelling tramcar restaurants in the world and boast stunning 4 or 5 course meals in a novel environment. Finish the evening off with a night at the theatre or a nightcap in one of Melbourne’s cozy bars followed by a romantic evening in a hotel. Try our Clarion Suites Gateway which features four and a half star luxury accommodation in the Melbourne CBD close to Melbourne’s theatres, restaurants and entertainment precinct.
Hot Air Ballooning
Floating high above the fields in complete silence apart from the occasional whoosh of the flames warming the air in the balloon, and watching the sun rise on the horizon is an experience like no other. The feeling of freedom and tranquility as the balloon moves with the breeze to its final destination yet to be determined is exhilarating and the ideal experience to share with your soul mate. There are hot air ballooning companies scattered across Australia including places like Adelaide’s Barrossa Valley, Victoria’s Yarra Valley, New South Wales’ Hunter Valley and a range of other places. Our favourite place to Hot Air Balloon is in Orange, New South Wales because of its pristine countryside. Book one of the packages that includes a champagne breakfast after the ride and complete your day with a wine tasting tour followed by a romantic night in our Quality Inn Ambassador Orange.
Take a Dance Class
Partner dancing is one of the most intimate things you can do but not everyone has natural ability. Take a class together, learn the salsa, rumba or cha cha and then take your new found skills to the dance floor. You just might discover you have something in common with Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers… or at least have fun finding out you don’t.
Some other anniversary ideas to consider are:-
- Wine and art class – where you can create a portrait of each other.
- Sky diving or bungy jumping – make a memory you’ll never forget!
- Champagne breakfast on a headland or a secluded beach.
- His and hers pamper package at a day spa.
- Surfing lesson for 2.
- A helicopter ride.
- A picnic by a waterfall.
- Renew your vows in a limestone cave.
- Hire a Ferrari for the day and take a drive to the country for lunch.
- Swim with the dolphins.
- Book a tour on a Harley Davidson trike.
