As cheesy as it can be, there is something to be said for Valentine’s Day. Sure, it’s considered a bit of a Hallmark holiday, designed to sell cards, flowers, teddy bears and the like, but it is also a nice opportunity to spread a bit of love to those around you.
Love is definitely in the air in Perth, with a whole heap of heart-shaped dinners and events happening around town. So we say get dressed up, take the hand of someone you love, and get out there among all the red-rosey goodness the city has to offer.
Here’s our pick of Valentine’s Day dinners and events in Perth.
