Love has inspired countless selfless gestures and works of art over the years. But have you thought about its influence on our street and town names? We’ve compiled some of Australia’s most romantic street names to inspire your Valentine’s Day celebrations.
If you’re looking to make a big romantic gesture on February 14 in the NSW suburb of Valentine (where better?), you’ll come across Valentine Crescent, just one of many love-themed street names you’ll find scattered across the country.
As for the most popular word, ‘Rose’ is probably the pick of the bunch (yep, pun intended). It appears repeatedly as Rose Place in New South Wales in Boorooma, Cambridge Gardens, Casino, Lalor Park and West Albury, and again in the Victorian areas of Pascoe Vale, Waldara and Wangaratta.
Similarly popular is the word ‘Bliss’ which appears frequently in Queensland: Bliss Court (Burpegnary), Bliss Lane in Birtinya, South Ripley, Bringalily and Canning Creek and Bliss Street in East Innisfail, Enoggera, Gaythorne, Heatley and Maroochydore.
If your Valentine’s Day plans are in dire need of some romantic address inspiration, consider Desire Place (Hoppers Crossing, VIC), Moon Rise (Yallingup, WA) or Romance Road (Mount Romance, WA). Or you could lock lips at the aptly named Kissing Point Road in Dundas, NSW.
Who knew some suburbs were so romantic? Morley in WA is not only home to one of the two remaining Blockbuster stores in the world but also has a Candy Street and Rose Place. Paralowie, SA is home to a Candy Court and Arrow Crescent, Atwell, WA has Charm Way, Chivalry Way and Bliss Lane, and Ararat, VIC has Lovers Lane and Wild Street. Woo, it’s heating up in here!
