Romantic getaways

Whether you’re a young couple planning a mid-week getaway full of romance, a married couple with some time away from the kids or a retired couple seeking a bit of adventure, there are plenty of places around Australia that are perfect for a romantic getaway.

Margaret River, Western Australia

Margaret River is the perfect place to slow things down, chill out and just enjoy each other’s company.


Yes, there are plenty of activities and things to in Margaret River, but what really could be better than lazing in the sun on one of the region’s beautiful beaches, or enjoying a glass of wine over a deliciously long lunch at an award-winning winery or brewery?


Take off your watch, put away your phone, and escape to this coastal paradise for a romantic weekend getaway with your loved one.


The Pullman Bunker Bay Resort is the perfect place to spend your Margaret River romantic getaway. Surrounded by bushland and right on the beach, this resort offers both privacy and all the amenities you could ever want. Did we mention their infinity pool that looks right on to the ocean?


Have a romantic meal at the resort’s award-winning world-class restaurant, Other Side of the Moon, or pack a picnic and take a short stroll right onto Bunker Bay beach which offers calm, flat waters and shelter from the wind. 


With 150 luxuriously appointed bungalow-style villas nestled amongst immaculately landscaped grounds, it really is hard to say no. 

Port Douglas, Queensland

With gorgeously warm weather all year round, it’s no wonder the beautiful town of Port Douglas is one of Australia’s favourite honeymoon destinations.


Whether you and your partner choose to seek out adventure on the Great Barrier Reef or Daintree Rainforest or simply chill out and soak up some of those tropic North Queensland vibes - Port Douglas has got you covered. 


Situated in picturesque Port Douglas, Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple Resort & Spa is the perfect place to escape for a romantic weekend getaway. While the resort’s stunning 3000m long lagoon-style pool might make it hard to leave, its central location offers guests easy access to a host of local delights. Ideal for couples, the resort’s luxurious one-bedroom Penthouse Apartment comes with a private rooftop area, heated Jacuzzi and BBQ facilities.  

Sorrento, Victoria

Hidden right on the end of the Mornington Peninsula lies the sleepy beach town of Sorrento. While this town is more about waterside dining and browsing galleries than action-packed adventure, there is still plenty to explore. 


Take a day trip to some of the region’s best wineries such as Montalto Wines, or spend the day in the famous Peninsula Hot Springs. Reserve a private hot spring for you and your partner or book into a couples’ massage for a day of complete Zen. 


Within walking distance to Portsea's calm bay beach and the lively Portsea Pubs, lies the Mercure Portsea. This resort is made up of 25 rooms, offering panoramic views. If you and your partner love to have a hit of golf, then you’ve come to the right place as this hotel includes an immaculately kept gold club.

Sydney, New South Wales

If you’re looking to really treat your loved one with a romantic weekend, Sydney is the ultimate city break. Whether you are a NSW local or flying in from interstate, Sydney is packed full of luxury attractions to spoil your loved one’s socks off.


Take them out for a special dinner in the Rocks Precinct or a glass of bubbly with Sydney Harbour views to celebrate a special occasion. From coastal walks and galleries to markets and shopping there is plenty to do during daylight hours as well.


With its timeless elegance and harbourside setting, Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour offers one-of-a-kind comfort. The hotel’s unique design draws inspiration from the area’s heritage – with touches of Sofitel’s signature French art de vivre (the art of living, French style). It’s an inner-city oasis that’s perfect for couples seeking a luxurious romantic weekend away.

Kingscliff, New South Wales

Kingscliff is the perfect blend of sleepy beach vibes and a chilled out atmosphere that couples will really love. Although a tiny beachside town with one main street, Kingscliff still has plenty on offer with quaint cafes, leafy parklands and acclaimed restaurants just waiting for you to dine.


If you and your partner are looking for a relaxing beachside haven, look no further than Mantra on Salt Beach. The perfect getaway offering fully self-contained one and two bedroom rooms and suites each with a private balcony.

If you're looking for something a little more like a tropical paradise, you'll find it at Peppers Salt Resort and Spa. You can laze the days away by the resort and lagoon style pools or book in for a wellness and spa treatment and we guarantee you'll float right out the door.
