Rain rain go away

Recently in Sydney we’ve been going through a bit of a wet patch. If you’re worried that this will put a damper on your dating endeavours, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Spark, we’ve compiled a list of 5 great date ideas that you can do come rain, hail or shine!

Indoor Skydiving


Skydiving is one of those bucket list items that few people ever get around to. The idea of jumping out of a plane terrifies most of us. Luckily, it’s now possible to experience the thrill of skydiving without the scary freefall.

Why not spice up your relationship by trying indoor skydiving? Step into a large glass flight chamber together and be lifted onto a cushion of air by enormous wind generators. It’s certainly an experience you’ll remember for years to come.

White Rabbit Gallery


You’ve probably heard of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. You’ve probably heard of the Museum of Contemporary Art. Have you heard of the White Rabbit Gallery?

Nestled near Central Park, the White Rabbit Gallery is home to a rotating exhibition of contemporary Chinese artworks and installations. It’s a great date idea if you’re on a budget - entry is free! You can spend hours together appreciating all of the beautiful, weird, and extraordinary cultural artefacts curated for you, and afterwards you can even stop by the teahouse to try some of the finest Chinese and Taiwanese teas. We hear the scones are scrumptious!

Book a Staycation


We understand. With everything that’s going on in your life, it’s hard to find the time to get away. But hey, sometimes the best holidays don’t involve any travel at all. We’re talking about a Sydney staycation, and we’ve found 3 stunning boutique hotels where you and your partner can kick back, relax, and really enjoy your time together.

  1. The Old Clare Hotel - Smack dab in the middle of the Sydney Central Business District, The Old Clare Hotel is a stylish getaway, complete with a sun terrace and a trendy bar where you and your partner can enjoy an evening drink.

  2. Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney - Just a short walk from Circular Quay, this hotel boasts a delicious buffet breakfast and an award-winning bar. Get steamy in the luxurious marble bathrooms.

  3. Paramount House Hotel - One of our favourites, the Paramount House Hotel is a home away from home in Surry Hills. Its jaw-dropping decor will get you in the mood for love.

Virtual Reality Escape Room


Here at Spark, one of our favourite dates this month is the virtual reality escape room. There’s nothing quite like putting on a VR headset and solving mind-bending problems together under 60 minutes - if your relationship can survive this, then it’s sure to stand the test of time!

The amazing cutting edge technology behind virtual reality allows you to step fully into another dimension. You and your partner will be transported to a place created entirely from imagination. It will be like living out a movie in real life!

Comedy and Wine at Giant Dwarf


Another wonderful date package we’ve organised for our Spark couples is comedy and wine night at Giant Dwarf. This uniquely hilarious show features Redfern’s Improv Theatre Sydney, breaking down the news and current events in comedic fashion. Nothing beats a good belly laugh, and we guarantee you’ll have an ab workout by the end of the night.

We’ll even throw in a bottle of fine wine for good measure, and hook you up with secret spots to explore before and after the show. You’ll be treated to the VIP experience, from beginning to end, because we think you’re worth it.
