Welcome to Speed Dating Social in Gippsland, VIC! We’re excited to invite you to our dynamic and engaging singles events where you get to enjoy a series of mini-dates with different participants, each lasting about five minutes. This quick-paced format offers a refreshing alternative to traditional dating methods, allowing for genuine, face-to-face connections.

In Gippsland, known for its friendly locals and scenic landscapes, speed dating takes on a unique charm. This area, famous for its relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, makes for an ideal backdrop for our singles nights. The heart of Gippsland’s social scene is George Street, where you’ll find a plethora of lively bars and pubs perfect for a night out. If you’re traveling to our events, the V/Line Train to Traralgon Station or the local Bus Route 45 are convenient options, with stops right near the popular venues.

Our Venues

Wildflower Bar & Dining Wildflower Bar & Dining is known for its chic, rustic decor, including wooden beams and vintage accents that create a cozy yet elegant atmosphere. Its signature drink, the Wildflower Gin Sour, is a must-try. Established in 2015, the bar was previously a historic bakery, adding a touch of heritage to the experience. Owned by local entrepreneur Emma Davis, Wildflower’s intimate setting enhances the speed dating experience by creating a comfortable environment for meaningful conversations.

Its open spaces and rooftop views make it an ideal spot for a lively and interactive speed dating event.
