FEB 13, 2019 9:00AM
Valentine’s Day 2019 is around the corner, and if you’re strapped for ideas for how to surprise your partner, you’re not alone.
Considering V-Day falls on a Thursday this year, you might be constricted by work, so night-time (and the following weekend) are when you should try to coordinate your plans. Because figuring out what to do can be nightmarish, ELLE has rounded up some of our best ideas for Sydneysiders on February 14, no matter what your budget, preference, or idea of fun.
Here’s for all the cupids out there.

The Grounds of Alexandria’s ‘Bohemian Love Story’ event, Alexandria

‘Dancing On My Own’ at Oxford Art Factory
We’re expecting you probably haven’t made it this far into the article if you’re single, but if you have, you’ve struck gold.

Get down to Kylie, Rihanna, Bowie and more, at this self-proclaimed ‘Anti-Valentine’s Disco’ (which, thankfully, isn’t on a weeknight).
