Roses Only romances national media through Zakazukha’s public relations strategy



Valentine’s Day is easily one of the busiest in the Roses Only calendar – no surprises there! As Australia’s largest online retailer of delivered flowers and gifts, our friends at Roses Only were able to reveal which suburbs are the most romantic when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifting.

Based on sales data of the ever popular and timeless statement of love, long-stemmed red roses, Roses Only were able to identify not only the top ten most romantic suburbs in Australia, but also the top five romantic suburbs in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Australian Capital Territory.

Success is in the planning

Zakazukha formulated a strategic and targeted public relations campaign that included sending the regionalised data to lifestyle media across Australia’s states and territories. The story was picked up by state and local media including the West Australian, Newcastle Weekly, Canberra Times and 7 Gold Coast News.

Despite the data based on sales of long-stemmed red roses, interestingly Roses Only have noticed the emergence of some less traditional flower varieties such as pink and white coloured roses, as well as sunflowers, oriental lilies and Australian natives.

Check out the list below to find out what Australia’s top ten most romantic postcodes are. We’ve also included a state-by-state top five guide so you can see if your suburb is swoon worthy!
