Plan a weekend of romance - with new ideas for 2022


With winter upon us, everyone is looking for easy travel ideas to get away for a quick break. The long weekend is the ideal time to indulge. From snow cabins with a fireplace and a hot tub, to beachside resorts, it's time to get adventurous with romantic ideas for things to do close to home.


Are you planning the perfect weekend away? Or looking to celebrate with your special someone? It’s time to bring the romance back to your relationship with a cosy romantic weekend break with your lover. Romantic getaways make the perfect gift for couples looking to take a break.


How do you make a romantic weekend special?

Do something special for your significant other and plan the perfect weekend escape. You don't need to go far to make it a weekend to remember. For a special anniversary couples’ gift or just a chance to spend some quality time together, planning a weekend to relax and unwind is a lovely surprise for your partner. Little touches of luxury that you don't usually indulge in, like a luxury hamper or a bottle of champagne, are an easy way to turn a weekend away into a romantic escape.


Long walks, star-filled nights, a cosy fire, and fine wine make the perfect couples’ experience. Couples retreats are guaranteed to get you in the mood. Find luxurious spa locations with private rooms, stunning scenery, and nothing to do except relax and enjoy your time together. If a little more action suits your style, plan your romantic getaway with secluded bushwalking trails, wine tours, or beach adventures.

You don’t have to travel far to find a secluded escape steeped in romance in New South Wales. Close to Sydney, you’ll find the perfect spot to get away from the crowds. From beachside villas to snow-capped mountains you can create the perfect weekend with your special someone.


Wine country offers the perfect setting for romance. The rolling hills of Australia’s premium Hunter Valley wine country are ideal for unwinding with your partner. The beautiful Hunter Valley offers the best wineries and cellar door wine tours for couples to enjoy together. Choose a romantic B&B holiday close to restaurants, vineyards and spas if you want a choice of activities to do together.


If you’re headed to the beach for a lazy weekend escape, Byron Bay offers the best romantic beach-side location. Choose from boutique hotels to quaint cottages all perfect for creating a weekend of romance.


If snuggled by a cosy fire at a romantic bush retreat is more your style, the Blue Mountains is the perfect spot. Enjoy lazy sleep-ins and secluded mountain strolls with your partner. For couples wanting to experience the ultimate romantic getaway, find a private bush cabin nestled alongside the Blue Mountains National Park.


Make your romantic getaway everything you dreamed it would be.
