11 Budget-Friendly Date Experiences Around Perth To Impress Your Other Half
Times are tough, but we’re still softies at heart – which means we’re always looking for cute, wallet-friendly ways to impress an even cuter date! Whether you and your date are adventure fiends or budding gourmands, there are deals all over Perth to be had as part of Destination Perth’s awesome Fun On A $50 campaign.
Check out a bunch below, and check our recent article for more ideas that we’re sure would also double nicely as dates!
Dingo Brewery Brew Experience
We may be simple, but a six pack of frothies is a surefire way to our heart, and getting to make our own is even better! Dingo Brewery will give you a chance to learn all about brewing, plus enjoy a tasting paddle of beers and ciders and a delish grazing board – all for just $50.
Day Trip To Rottnest Island (Wadjemup)
What’s a better date than a trip to an island paradise? Head over to Rottnest (Wadjemup) with SeaLink’s Go Early, Go Blue offer. Make the most of your weekday trip by setting off bright and early from Freo and your return fare will only set you back $49 per person (and you’ll feel like a total baller). Hit up Pedal & Flipper (who are also offering a nifty deal) for a bike to traverse the island, exploring its 63 beautiful beaches, world-class snorkelling trails and spectacular vistas.
Mandurah Dolphin Cruise & Views
Keep the boat life going with Mandurah Cruises. The Dolphin Cruise & Views tour will take you on a scenic journey through Mandurah’s waterways as you and your date spot WA’s largest population of bottlenose dolphins. Hit the water on a weekday and you can grab a double pass for only $50 – plus fish and chips on board if you really want to go all out!
Mandurah Boat Hire
Or, if you prefer to take things at your own pace – Mandurah Boat Hire can sort you out with a fun afternoon on a dinghy exploring the waterways, and it’ll only set you back $50 for an hour. The crew will even give you a run through on everything you need to know before you depart, so no skippers ticket is required!
The Henley Brook
There’s a good reason The Hen is so popular with locals – their commitment to a clucking good time! They’re even doing a clucking good deal that’s perfect for date nights, with a generous Pecking Plate and a bottle of Hen-house wine for just $50.
Perth Wildlife Encounters
If spotting dolphins from a boat just isn’t up close and personal enough for you, head to Perth Wildlife Encounters for a once-in-a-lifetime experience swimming with dolphins in the sparkling, sheltered waters of Rockingham. If you book before December 15, you’ll be able to claim $50 off the award-winning experience.
Stand Up Paddle Central WA
Another spectacular experience for water lovers, Stand Up Paddle Central WA can hook you up with a variety of experiences to enjoy the city’s most picturesque river scenery – from stand up paddle boarding past the iconic Blue Boat House or cycling the Swan River on a water bike! Departing from Matilda Bay, you can get both (45 minutes of water cycling or two hours SUP hire) for $50 per person.
While plenty of us have memories of a school trip or two to Freo Prison, it’s well worth a revisit in adulthood. The historical landmark is WA’s only World Heritage listed site, and they have plenty of tours on offer that won’t break the bank. Discover the history of the convicts that built their own prison, how they lived behind bars and the true stories of their most notorious crimes.
Wanneroo Botanic Gardens Glow Golf
Mini golf is an absolutely classic date night, and you’ll be practically glowing after a round at the Wanneroo Botanic Gardens! This is no regular mini golf though – you’ll be exploring the botanic gardens under the night sky, following your glowing LED golf ball through the course’s 36 holes. And until the end of November, tickets for two adults will only set you back $50!
Upper Reach Winery
Enjoy the spoils of the Swan Valley with a visit to Upper Reach. For $50 per person, this award winning winery will give you an expert, personalised tour, showing you how they make their wines while you taste your way through their offerings.
Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough
Just about everyone is ready for a staycation at the moment, and we definitely include ourselves! Turn it into a weekend of relaxation with a stay at the Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough – plus, if you book into the King Deluxe Ocean View room, you’ll cop yourself a $50 voucher to spend on a meal at one of the hotel’s eateries. And what a coincidence: the hotel’s Straits Cafe is also offering a very tempting lunch for two with a wine for just $50!
While this may not be under $50, you’ll be getting a whopper of a discount on this adrenaline-packed, bucket-list experience! Skydive Geronimo offer truly breathtaking views of Rotto, the city skyline, Freo and the coastline – all while you hurtle towards the ground from 10 000 feet in the air! Until November 30, you can get $50 discount per person for their 10,000ft and return flight package.
