Australian City Breaks

Exploring the world's most Romantic Destinations!



If you really want to wow your lover, Australia has plenty of luxury accommodation in some of the most beautiful locations on the planet. Whether you wish to impress with a tropical island getaway or woo with a chic ecoretreat, there are heaps of high-end destinations for romantic holidays.

Island Paradise

Where better to spend a short break with someone special than your own island paradise off the coast of tropical north Queensland? The Whitsunday Islands are synonymous with warm, azure blue waters; palm-fringed, white sand beaches and the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef. Whilst many people visit the Whitsundays to enjoy the sailing, scuba diving and beach life that the 'Islands are famous for, if you have the money, you can sample these delights from the enviable surround of the Bedarra Island Resort   an exclusive resort on pristine Bedarra Island that offers deluxe villa accommodation to a select 32 guests at a time.

Winery Sparkle

Western Australia's Margaret River region produces some outstanding wines and has luxury and boutique accommodation to match. One of the most exclusive spots to wine and dine a loved one is the Cape Lodge Yallingup - a gorgeous winery that offers the last word in high-end boutique hotels. If you have a passion for gourmet food, fine wine and perhaps learning about the 2 at a cooking school, then this is the perfect getaway for you.

SilverNeedle Hotels

Exclusive Red Centre

The stark beauty of the Australian outback can be harsh and brutal. However, if you fancy 'glamping' (luxury camping) within the shadows of iconic Uluru (Ayers Rock), you'll find that it is also a landscape that is highly conducive to romance. Many companies promise a luxury wilderness camping experience, but few provide it with the same amount of class as Longitude 131, an exclusive Voyages resort. Sumptuous white tents with better amenities than many expensive boutique hotels rise from the red dust of the desert offering spectacular views of Uluru - and easy access to the equally stunning Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) - from dusk 'til dawn.

Wild Tasmania

Tasmania's rugged landscape may have found its perfect foil in Saffire Freycinet   a fabulous architectural wonder that hugs the dramatic coastline of Tasmania's awesome eastern shores. With amazing facilities like a glamorous luxury spa, 5 star service, gourmet food and exclusive tours of the breath-taking Freycinet Peninsula (including the haunting Wineglass Bay), it's hard to imagine a better place to spend a weekend away with a lover.

Blue Mountains Chic

The Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa in the glorious Blue Mountains west of Sydney is an exclusive resort built by Emirates with absolutely no expense spared. The luxury accommodation is stylish, the food is divine and the spa and other amenities are truly world class. If you feel like a short break away from the grind and noise of Sydney, a romantic getaway to the Wolgan Valley Resort ticks all the boxes.

The Simple Lodge Goes Luxury

South Australia's awe-inspiring Kangaroo Island is a unique part of the world with an incredible array of flora and fauna and a wild, untouched aura. On a remote stretch of its wind-swept south west coast lies the ultimate in luxury lodges   the Southern Ocean Lodge. An architectural wonder, this exclusive lodge offer romantic weekends like no other with wilderness tours and insights into the fascinating Kangaroo Island ecosystem as well as all the usual pampering and comforts that you'd expect from 5 star accommodation.
