Lovers invited to enjoy a romantic night by lakeside

Finding something to do on Valentines Day can be a difficult task.

The Australian Botanic Gardens, Mount Annan have come up with an ideal solution.

Lovers by Lakeside offers couples the chance to enjoy a movie under the stars beside the gardens’ iconic lake.

Botanic garden visitor experience venue manager Rebecca Anderson said they wanted to offer sweethearts something a little different.

“We started this event last year and it was a huge success so we decided to host it again,” she said.

“It’s just something a bit different.

“Valentines Day continues to grow in popularityeach year so it can be hard to find the perfect thing to do.

“This is a relaxed event, you don’t need to get dressed up you can just bring some chairs, blankets, a rug, whatever you like and enjoy a movie.”

This year’s movie is The Wedding Singer, starring Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler.

“We had a public vote to decide on which movie to show and this was the movie most people wanted,” Ms Anderson said.

“So it will be shown on a giant inflatable screen.

“There will also be food stalls available or you can bring your own picnic and some bottles of bubbles to enjoy.”

Ms Anderson said Lovers by Lakeside was a great way to treat the person you love.

“It’s a romantic evening under the stars,” she said.

“You will get to be comfortable and enjoy some quality time together.”

Tickets are $24.30 per person or $22.19 for members.
