Where do the most romantic Australians live?


Picodi.com analysis team decided to check the statistics of “romantic” queries on the internet in 46 largest cities and created the ranking of the most romantic places in Australia.

In search of romantic

Our queries list consisted of terms like “Valentine’s Day”, “love confession”, “flowers”, “love”, and others which would associate with Valentine’s Day. During the period before Valentine’s Day, the frequency of searching these queries increases in whole Australia. However, in some places, the interest in making a pleasant surprise to the significant other increases more, and in some — notably less.

Where do the most romantic people in Australia live?

After looking closely at Google’s figures, it turns out that the most romantic Australians live in Launceston, Darwin, and Bundaberg. In these cities, the increase in popularity of queries connected to Valentine’s Day was the highest. It seems that Launceston’s charming Victorian architecture creates a romantic atmosphere among its residents.

Among all cities, the lowest interest in Valentine’s Day and all connected to it was noted among residents of Gladstone (46th place). Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie turned out to be quite unromantic as well (45th and 44th place respectively)

Here’s the full ranking of cities:
