SWEETHEARTS young and old will be stopping by Lovers Lane tomorrow for romantic interludes and happy snaps.

Valentine's Day is what brings them out in droves to the corner of Brisbane Valley Hwy and Lovers Lane to frolic between the giant heart and arrow in what is a unique experience.

Redbank Plains model Brooke Searle and Matt Breed did the honours for The QT yesterday and commuters honked their horns in appreciation as they flew past the world's most romantic bus stop.

Cr David Pahlke, who is well known for spruiking the quirky hangouts in his neighbourhood, said there was only one fair dinkum Lovers Lane.

"This is the only official Lovers Lane in Queensland.

"Every person should be heading here on Valentine's Day to show their true love and true feelings," he said.

"On Valentine's Day people like to stop and get their photos taken with the heart behind them."

Ms Searle said she was a big

fan of February 14 and everything it entails.

"I love Valentine's Day. I think it is so romantic," she said.

"I think it is a great day for couples to express their love for each other.

"Life can get pretty hectic, especially when there are children involved, so it is nice to take that time out and do something special for each other.

"It could be a card or a nice home cooked dinner. It can be as romantic as your imagination wants it to be."

Lovers Lane, in Ironbark, was named 40 years ago.

"But over the years the

signpost was always pinched," Cr Pahlke said.

"Then we welded the sign to the post. Then they both went missing.

"We then planted some Bougainvillea around it and cemented it in with a heart on the sign. We've also got the bus stop there with the heart and arrow."

It is not known whether Cr Pahlke will be hot-footing it to the lane of love tomorrow.

"But I will be going for a quiet candlelit dinner with my partner," he grinned.
