Valentine’s Day might be known as the ultimate ‘Hallmark Holiday’ but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it.
If you’re looking for a good reason for a night out together with your significant other; or you’re trying to win over a new love interest; or even if you’re single and keen to mingle, you’ve come to the right place.
GlamAdelaide have made a comprehensive guide to what’s on for couples (and singles) on Valentine’s Day in Adelaide and we’ve got the best of it right here.
We’ve separated it into three sections – specific events on for Valentine’s Day, dinner venues with special Valentine’s Day deals, and Valentine’s Day events for singles.
Valentine’s Day Events
Floating Melodies: Flamenco Valentine
It’s not quite Venice but who says cruising on the Port River can’t be romantic! Over two hours, you and your date will share food plates, taste red wine and enjoy a concert as you cruise. Tickets start at $42. More information here.
House of Mirrors – the Garden of Unearthly Delights
You may see more of yourself than your partner in this nostalgic mirror maze in the Garden of Unearthly Delights but it’s a whole lot of fun and quite likely to sell out. Tickets are $15. More information here.

What better movie to watch for FREE with your loved one than…. Love Actually. It’s showing outdoors at Waterford Reserve, just north of the city but make sure you book. More information here.
