Looking for quirky/fun/adventurous weekend activities or getaways for couples

By 24 December, 2013 13


I’m looking for some quirky/fun/adventurous weekend activities or getaways for couples.

It could be free or paid, right here in Canberra or up to 2 hours away, energetic or laid back. Think gold panning, fossil hunting, abseiling, DIY classes, farm stays where we get to milk cows and that sort of thing…

I’m open to pretty much anything! I’m looking for other ideas and some good providers; I haven’t had much luck finding the above activities on offer.

Try walking around Civic in the weekend early hours.

Maybe look at somewhere like Thredbo? They seem to have a bit of that kind of thing.

I haven’t been here but it does sound interesting – http://www.jetflightsimulatorcanberra.com.au/

What about the Walk-in aviary at Gold Creek? And didn’t they once do knife making classes etc somewhere in Tharwa (good only for stable relationships of course!)? Beer brewing in Hume? Winery tours in Murrumbateman? Surfing/stand-up paddle boarding at the coast?

2 Hours Drive? Southern Highlands is a good option, Start at this place; http://www.illawarrafly.com/ or of it’s hot; http://www.jamberoo.net/.
For lunch head into Moss Vale for some average cafes or go into Kangaroo Valley for one of the most gorgeous spots. The pub down there does a fairly good feed.

If you have the time, book a room in the very old Bundanoon Hotel and go for a walk to the Glow-worm Glen.

Hope this helps

If you are going to advertise “I’m open to anything!”, you may find yourself milking more than cows.

Go to the Dionasaur Museum http://www.nationaldinosaurmuseum.com.au

It is no only for kids. Lots of interesting rocks and stones. Read all the little blurbs about the monsters, they have hidden gems of fact and fiction.

Then go to the reptile zoo, extremely interesting. http://goldcreek.com.au/canberra-reptile-zoo/

We arrived in canberra about a year ago and frankly it’s been a struggle to find things to do here for a couple! I’ve enjoyed the War Memorial, Questacon, there’s a lovely tea shop called Adore Tea in Nicholls, multicultural festival that I think is in March, skyfire, apparently there’s rock climbing in Mitchell somewhere but we haven’t been there, Mt Ainslie is lovely too… But yeh I’m still pretty bored here more than anything!
