When you find success with free online dating, you’ll eventually want to whisk your new lover off their feet on a getaway. Last month we looked at romantic getaways in the UK, and this month we’re moving over to Australia. Although it is pretty difficult to pick out only 5 romantic hotspots in this sprawling country of beautiful beaches, stark contrasts and stunning viewpoints, we gave it our best shot. So here are a few of the best romantic getaway ideas in Australia for any of our Aussie online daters.
1. Whitsunday Islands
Although much of Australia’s coastline could be described as paradise, the Whitsunday Islands are the icing on the cake for anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the cities for a romantic weekend away. Soak up some rays, wander the mangroves, and snorkel or dive in the Great Barrier Reef for an unforgettable retreat.
2. Byron Bay
If surfing and fun in the sun sounds more your thing, then the vibrant beach town of Byron Bay is sure to be right up your street. This beautiful bay is full of activity and is a great first getaway if you want to get to know your new partner better. Time your trip with a festival to squeeze even more excitement out of the visit.
With a hip culture, top places to wine and dine, and lots of things to see and too, Melbourne is perhaps the most romantic city in Australia if you’re looking for a city break. Live the high life or become culture vultures as you explore this fun-filled city together, for a truly fantastic weekend of shopping, eating, drinking and activity.
4. Barossa Valley
To sample the delightful wines of Australia away from the city, head to the Barossa Valley for a weekend guzzling these gorgeous grapes and enjoying the rural heart of South Australia. With valleys stretching as far as the eye can see and some great options for tours, it’s a unique idea for an Australian romantic getaway with that someone special.
However if the great outdoors really gets you excited, then Tasmania is a tantalising experience for a romantic escape and a walk on the wild side. Climb unspoilt landscapes to get panoramic views over lakes, hills and beautiful national parks, a great getaway for any down to earth daters who want to embrace the natural beauty of Australia… and each other!
Whether you’re a country mouse or a city slicker, a beach lover or a keen walker, these 5 romantic getaways in Australia should give you plenty of inspiration if you want to take your dating to the next level when you meet a keeper. But if you’re still looking for a worthy travel companion, then get searching for singles near you in our FreeAndSingle database, and you never know how soon you could be jetting off with someone who suits you to a T.
