You might be stumped as to how you’re going to make your first date with that special someone interesting, or you could be planning a night out with your significant other as a way to say “I care about you”. One thing is for sure, the Hills District has an abundance of perfect date scenarios that can easily be executed in your local area.
The Hills area is paradise for picnic lovers, and what better way to showcase that to your date than a day out fruit picking, accompanied by a glass of bubbles, cheese, or a classic “The Hills” cocktail at The Bella Vista Hotel. Or better yet why not go online and click and collect your cocktails from Bella XO Around mid-May, you’ll be enticed by the divine scent of mandarin blossoms from Fords Farm.
For something a little closer, Schofields Orchid will be bursting with an abundance of citrus fruit and, best of all, it’s only 20 minutes from Norwest. A spectacular view can be enjoyed at the Watkins Orchid – a breathtaking farm, a mere hour away from Hills, that’s perfect for picnicking.
Plus, with so many entertainment ideas on offer, sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics – a spin around the ice-skating rink, or the bowling alley, followed by a romantic drive-in movie. Strike Bowling at the Macquarie Centre, is open till late, and has a few added inclusions — panic rooms and karaoke — to keep you and your date entertained.
An old faithful, and coincidentally Sydney’s last remaining drive-in movie theatre, is Blacktown Drive-In which, we’re sure, has seen plenty of “yawn and arm stretch” action in its day. Lunch in Paris, followed by a shopping trip in Honkers, might not be possible from the convenience of your Hills location but that doesn’t mean you still can’t sample the wondrous tastes and textures this world has to offer.
You’ll find both at Mullane’s Hotel. End the night at the Hillside Hotel, where many a memory has been made, for a decadently rustic Italian dinner and, if you still have room, a plate of Italian donuts filled with nutella. And while these are only three ideas, we hope they motivate you to explore the Hills, where the perfect date could be just around the corner.
Surry Hills is home to many of Sydney’s most exciting contemporary art galleries, such as the sophisticated Michael Reid Sydney on Kippax Street, the Brett Whiteley Studio on Raper Street (the actual home and studio of the acclaimed Aussie artist), and the hip m2 Gallery, which is a lively space just a short stroll from Central Station, where visitors can check out the work of established and up-and-coming local artists.
