Are you stumped for what to do with your significant other on Valentine's Day? Do you need some ideas to keep you out of the dog house?
Well look no further! Here is your comprehensive list of some of the most romantic things to do in Ballarat.
Nothing says romance like flowers, so surround your loved one in them with a trip down to the Ballarat Botanical Gardens.
Take a walk through the glorious displays around the grounds and relax with a picnic under one of the hundreds of tall trees.
While you're in the area, you may as well take a walk around our gorgeous Lake Wendouree, watching the sun shimmer off the smooth water.
If you're looking for a more 'wild' experience, look towards the renowned Ballarat Wildlife Park.
Get up close with some of natures most spectacular creatures, see the live feedings of crocodiles and penguins and even grab a selfie with a kangaroo!
You can also see one of the park's newest residents, Maneki the tiger, who arrived in Ballarat in mid-December.
The 11-year-old Sumatran tiger has been acclimatising to her new conditions and is a sight to see.
For those looking for a unique gift, put together a gift hamper for your significant other from Campana's Stockade Cellars on Armstrong Street.
Providing a staggering selection of craft beers, wines and champagnes as well cheese and meats, it's the perfect gift for charcuterie lovers.
For those in search of a more adult experience, get down to Red Duck Brewery and Distillery to experience some out there flavours.
Whether craft beers are your thing, or you'd like to relax over a gin tasting session, Scott Wilson-Browne is providing some quality beverages for your valentines day.
If you're able to take a drive on Thursday, head down to Blue Pyrenees Estate to experience their terrific winery and cellar door experience.
For a true display of relaxation, book in for a couples session at Ballarat's Sanctuary Day Spa. Lie back and relax through a few calming hours of pampering.
If you've been reading this list and thinking 'boy these ideas would be great! If only I had a partner,' don't fret, because two passionate individuals have organised a night for the singles in Ballarat.
The ‘Be My Valentine Singles Night’ is set out to be a friendly, non-threatening night of activities and hopefully romance at Moreshead Park in Redan from 7pm until 11pm.
The night will also act as a fundraising effort for Kas Fergus and Yvette Sari, who are looking to aim to raise over $3000 each in order to travel abroad as volunteers with the charity ‘Hair Aid’.
