It’s the most romantic time of year. Whether you are coupled up or a single pringle, there is always a way to spread some kind of love, even if it means shouting yourself a bottle of wine and ice cream. Go on, you deserve it.

In the lead up, Picodi conducted a survey which has discovered the top Australian cities and towns for romance. Ooh la la!

You might think because the city slickers have more restaurants, florists, etc that they have a lot more romance flying around. You couldn’t be far more from the truth, unless you live in Brisbane.

It turns out Launceston has the most romantics floating around, and Darwin and Bundaberg are right up there with them.

Sydney doesn’t appear until #19, followed by Melbourne at #20. It then trickles down all the way to the cities that really need to up their game, especially Gladstone. Yikes.
