Experience a Magical Firefly Date Night

Fireflies in the grass on a dark night

For a romantic twist on a picnic date, book yourselves in for some Firefly Magic in the Forest of Tranquillity at Ourimbah (oh! Just the name sounds like it is right out of a fantasy!). The fireflies come out at dusk and light up the night so you can stroll gently hand-in-hand and enjoy the spectacle.

One of the most relaxing things you can do as a couple is to get out into nature for some fresh air and trees. The benefits of green time are well documented, and an outdoor date can be just the ticket to recharge your batteries and reconnect.

Bring your own picnic dinner to enjoy as the sun goes down, and a torch to navigate the path through the trees. For an extra kick you can book a Friday or a Saturday night when there is live music so you can get into the rhythm of the forest before the firefly show.

This is only possible in November & December each year, so do get it into your diary!

Book your evening with the folks at the forest, and take a leisurely stroll through the rainforest before the show begins at dusk as the day fades to night. Please be sure to book online and read the notes to make sure you are able to take the tour.

I’ve been trying to get to this one for a long time now, so I’m making it a priority and its happening! Super excited, I’ll take lots of (possibly awful) pics… maybe see you there?
