Australia's most romantic destinations for holidays

If you are in the mood for love, Australia has plenty of picturesque spots for couples.


It doesn’t matter if you like your romance served hot – dinner on a private tropical beach – or cold – snuggling up around a Tasmanian lake – Australia has a wealth of getaways for couples. Celebrate an anniversary, book a honeymoon escape or rekindle your relationship. 

Breakfast with the locals in the Barossa Valley

Forget lazing around all morning in bed. Early starts can be just as seductive, at least in South Australia’s Barossa Valley where there is one very good reason to set the alarm. Head out for an early breakfast in a certain scenic bush clearing and your dining companions will include a clutch of wild kangaroos, grazing around you as you enjoy a five-star picnic breakfast. Wildlife encounters don’t come more memorable than this. Breakfast with the kangaroos is available to guests staying at The Louise, the Barossa’s premium boutique accommodation.

Cool change in Tasmania

Frosty mornings and cosy fires can be just as romantic as the tropics, and this cool-climate luxury can be found in Tasmania. The island is rich in scenic spots, but few are as lovely as forest-fringed Lake St Clair, carved out by glaciers millions of years ago. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks, it is a great place to grab a canoe and a thermos of hot chocolate, and drift along without a care. Pumphouse Point  offers luxury accommodation in a unique lakeside setting.

Find a private beach in Queensland

Every couple needs a stretch of sand to call their own. Fortunately Queensland has thousands of beaches to choose from, so you can always find a deserted spot to go strolling hand in hand. If you are looking for something even more special, the right resort can organise a candlelit dinner on your own private beach. Try Bedarra Island, off the Queensland coast near Mission Beach.

Savour the silence in the Kimberley

Australia has plenty of striking landscapes, but few as spell-binding as the Kimberley. This remote part of Western Australia is known for its ancient beauty, especially its stark gorges and extensive bushland. The million-acre El Questro wilderness park offers plenty of secret corners where the two of you can pull out a picnic and enjoy the views of the unique landscape of north west Australia and relax in one of the country's most remote and unspoilt the knowledge that civilisation is very far away.

Guests at El Questro Homestead can choose from a number of tailor made excursions, including a private picnic atop a waterfall.

Indulgence in the rainforest at Byron Bay

The ancient rainforests of northern NSW, surrounded by a protecting ring of peaks, are a wonderful place to go exploring together. Even better, however, is the option to swap the exploration for a spot of indulgence, with matching massage tables set up amid the greenery for a relaxing al fresco interlude. The Byron at Byron organises massages in the rainforest for in-house guests.
