Melbourne’s Top 10 Healthy Date Ideas

Melbourne’s Top 10 Healthy Date Ideas


From planning a protein-packed picnic, to stargazing at the Melbourne Observatory, consider your next date night sorted. We’ve picked out the best activities for the health conscious couple, guaranteed to get you out in the fresh air, or simply get you moving!

Catch a movie at the Rooftop Cinema

The Rooftop Cinema is back again this summer with a mix of all new blockbusters, cult favourites, classics and of course, stunning skyline views. There is the option to grab a burger and a cocktail onsite, but for a healthier twist, consider dinner at a nearby restaurant with a nutritious menu. Our pick? Some sushi from Saké Restaurant & Bar, Flinders Lane.

Get bouncing!

Bounce Inc is the ultimate date to get in a good fitness session, with the added bonus of having a whole lot of fun. There’s over 3,000 square meters of trampolines on site, so jump on board, burn some energy and have a date you won’t soon forget.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding in St Kilda

If you and your partner love the surf, sun and sand, then Stand Up Paddle Boarding at St Kilda beach could be just the thing for you. You can choose to go for lesson, or simply choose to wing it and just rend a board and paddle. It’s the perfect activity for you both to fit in a killer arm and core workout – without sweating it out in the gym!

Live music at Melbourne Zoo

With an awesome lineup of Australian and international artists, Zoo Twilights is a Melbourne summertime activity that music lovers will not want to miss. To make this date a little healthier, steer clear of the oh-so-tempting food trucks, and pack a picnic of your own. Voila! A healthy and fun night out.

Kick off your Sunday shoes

Barefoot bowling is no longer just for Nanas – so kick off your shoes and head on over to Fitzroy Bowling and Sports Club for a day of bowls and classic beats. The best part? On Sunday Sessions, bowling is free from 12-5pm!

Go stargazing at the Melbourne Observatory

Stargazing is all kinds of romantic, so booking a date to the Melbourne Observatory is definitely a winner. Check out their Starry Southern Skies tour and take a break, staring at what the sky has to offer. What could be better for your wellbeing?

Try your hand at climbing

If you fancy a date where you can work up a sweat, look no further than Bayside Rock Climbing. With over 200 climbs to choose from, starting from just $23 (including harness hire), we think that this date is 100% worth it.

Soak up some culture at the National Gallery

Keep your minds in tip top shape by checking out the exquisite exhibits at the National Gallery of Victoria. With an ever-changing collection of exhibits, this is a date that you’ll never get bored of, and will always keep coming back for more!

Head out on a walking tour

While there are many great walking tours of Melbourne, the friendly folk behind No Fixed Address City Tours offer something a little more off the beaten track. Choose from one of their three unique tours in Fitzroy, Abbotsford or Williamstown for a meaningful experience that will get you close to your daily step goal and support Melbourne’s most disadvantaged.

Pack a picnic

With so many beautiful gardens to choose from grab your picnic basket, fill it with some fresh produce and head off on a quest to find the perfect picnic spot. If you’re feeling a little lazy, you can even take a look at ordering a pre-packed picnic lunch instead. Too easy!
