Australia is best known for its dramatic scenery and laid back locals, however, it’s also an ideal getaway spot for couples. From the cosmopolitan cityscapes to its idyllic coastlines there are countless attractions that make Australia the perfect romantic holiday spot.
So for anyone tossing up ideas for their next couples’ getaway, here are a few reasons why Australia should be at the top of your list.
Many people holiday in Australia for the beautiful natural scenery, but there’s also much to love about the country’s urban jungles. Big, brash and bold, Sydney is a sightseer’s dream. There’s no better way to appreciate the sunlight glinting off the harbour than by boat. So, step aboard one of the tall ships that cruise nearby and behold Harbour Bridge and the stunning and iconic Opera House.
Melbourne is another location that’s perfect for romance, with the city boasting a distinctly European charm. You and your partner can spend hours exploring the lane ways filled with quirky art galleries, tapas bars and coffee shops.
Finally, for anyone interested in a more laid-back atmosphere, head to the ‘City of Churches’, where the Adelaide dating scene boasts a relaxed and comfortable vibe.
If you and your partner enjoy exploring the natural world, Australia is undoubtedly the holiday spot for you. With over 35,000 kilometres of coastline, Australia boasts everything from popular surf beaches to deserted coves and rock pools.
Some of the must see spots include Sydney’s laid-back Bronte Beach, Adelaide’s fun-loving Glenelg and beautiful Lorne, a two hour drive from Melbourne.
When you’re finished visiting the coastline, inland Australia also boasts some beautiful romantic destinations. Watching the sunset over Kakadu National Park and exploring the wonders of Katherine Gorge are sure to reignite a sense of excitement and adventure in any relationship.
A world away from reality
One of the best things about a romantic getaway to Australia is the opportunity to truly escape from life’s usual stresses. Whether you prefer a deserted beachside hut or a luxury resort, you’re sure to find it here.
One of the best couples’ holidays in Australia is ‘glamping’ or glamorous camping, which is available in stunning Jervis Bay. Whatever your ideal romantic holiday is, when you enjoy it in Australia you are guaranteed that relaxed feeling of being a world away from reality.
Not all couples’ holidays are filled with hours of reading by the pool. There are plenty of more adventurous activities that are perfect when enjoyed together.
Why not take a balloon ride over the stunning Hunter Valley whilst enjoying a champagne breakfast at sunrise? Or, for adventurous couples, a horse-riding trek through the Snowy Mountains allows you to enjoy some of the country’s most picturesque landscapes together. Foodie couples are also in for a treat, with some of the freshest seafood, vineyards and produce right on your doorstep.
