People who are on holidays to Australia may be interested in some ideas of how to spend Valentine’s Day differently.

Anyone who has taken flights to Australia recently will no doubt be  looking for a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day in the country.

Melbourne’s tourism office has offered some suggestions of a few unusual ways to celebrate the popular romantic holiday.

Top of the list is taking a loved one to play glow-in-the-dark mini golf by the city’s Docklands.

Although not the most romantic activity, it could be a fun way to spend the early part of the evening before moving on to some of the area’s bars and restaurants.

Alternatively, couples could opt for a peaceful sunset kayak tour around the city’s Docklands, taking in some of Melbourne’s landmarks along the way.

If that sounds like a bit too much hard work, there is always the option of joining one of the river restaurant cruises that provide refreshments as well as stunning views.

People with a soft spot for animals may also want to visit Melbourne’s zoo during a visit to the city after it welcomed the first baby elephant to be born at the wildlife park.
