You’re finally going on a date with the girl you had a crush on for the longest time, and you don’t want to screw it up. Everyone wants to make a good impression after all. Good thing, there are activities and places in Brisbane that are ideal for non-awkward first dates.
Have a Picnic
Brisbane has about 2,000 parks and gardens, so this is going to be easy — if you know what to choose. Some parks tend to have a bigger crowd, like the New Farm Park. The challenge is to find the ideal spot where you can stretch out a picnic blanket, eat your packed lunch, and share a bottle of sparkling wine. This would be a nice chance to get to know each other, so make sure you don’t get tongue-tied.
Soak up in the Culture and art Scene
In the Culture Centre complex alone, you can take a stroll in the afternoon or visit all the galleries and libraries. If this is too relaxed for you and you don’t want to embarrass yourself with your lack of knowledge in the arts, you can go to gigs or concerts. Be on the lookout for announcements on upcoming shows in Brisbane that you will both enjoy — be it in theatre, music, film, or art exhibits.
Get Cosy on a Rooftop Bar
Having drinks on your first date isn’t a bad idea if you do it right. In Brisbane, this is not a problem because there are many sophisticated pubs around. Bring her to a rooftop bar where you can enjoy the city view and fresh air, while downing a lager or whatever local brew they recommend. If she doesn’t drink much, offer to get her a glass of wine or cocktail instead.
Brisbane is the third largest Australian city, and the range of activities that you can do on your first date may seem limitless. Make sure you don’t try too hard to impress her, though. You don’t have to go overboard to avoid awkwardness.
