According to a study by dating service Elite Singles, Cairns is not a cheap place to date. 

They found that Australians can expect to spend $145 on average for a romantic night out.

The study defined a 'typical date night' as one that includes a mid-range dinner for two, a shared bottle of wine, two cinema tickets, and an eight-kilometre taxi ride home. 

Based on this they then put together a list of the most expensive cities to date in, and we came in the top 10 coming in at 8 on the list.

1. Sydney, NSW: $160

2. Melbourne, VIC: $158

3. Hobart, TAS: $156

4. Canberra, ACT: $152

6. Brisbane, QLD: $146

7. Gold Coast, QLD: $146

8. Cairns, QLD: $145
