Valentine's Day is just a few short weeks away, and if you and your partner haven't planned something intimate and fun, it's time to get cracking. This year, why not take a holiday together to a romantic destination in Australia? There are many to choose from, but here are three we recommend:
The Blue Mountains
For those living in New South Wales, the Blue Mountains are a go-to destination for romance. This area is particularly well-suited for the outdoorsy couples out there, as there are ample opportunities to hike through nature and take in the beautiful scenery.
One of the best walks is through the National Pass, which takes you along towering cliffs and cascading waterfalls.
Broome is known as the "pearl of the north", and not just because it's the pearling capital of Australia. The town is a gem in itself, with beautiful beachside views and plenty of cute restaurants and cafes that make for the perfect Valentine's Day getaway.
The sunsets along Cable Beach are famous, so be sure to squeeze an evening walk along the coast into your itinerary. We also recommend you visit Sun Pictures, which bills itself as the oldest outdoor cinema in the world.
If you're living in or visiting Queensland, then a trip to Hamilton Island on February 14 will be perfect for you and your sweetheart. This picturesque destination is a common choice for newlyweds, and it's also a popular option for those looking to get married, but there's no reason couples who have been together for a long time can't enjoy it as well.
Be sure to bring your swimmers, suntan lotion and appetite. With kilometres of white, sandy beaches and heaps of high-quality restaurants, you'll have holiday memories that will last a lifetime.
