With cuddly winter days on the doorstep, we asked Kelly, Catriona and Jason to show you a few places you might like to consider for a romantic weekend.
The Love Tee Pee
In just a 1.5 hour drive from Sydney to the Blue Mountains, you will find a most unusual place to spend with your loved one.
The Love Tee Pee is set amongst an outcrop of rock formations in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area wilderness. The annex has opening floor-to-ceiling windows allowing the ridge-top bushland to flow into the primitive style dwelling.
Primitive only in style, the tee pee has a spa bath, kitchen, television, cosy slow combustion fireplace and two feather headdresses! You can arrange a Pilates class, massage and the services of your very own chef.
Gondolas of Noosa
Enjoying a romantic gondola ride usually means an expensive trip to Venice, but as Kelly discovered, you can do it much closer to home.
Richard and Tanya Wilschke started the company fourteen years ago and it has become one of the things to do in Noosa. The gondola was custom-built in Brisbane to replicate a traditional gondola, but is more luxurious. It’s powered by a small and very quiet motor.
Beach Club, Hamilton Island
The Great Barrier Reef is sprinkled with romantic islands, none more so than Hamilton.
The Beach Club on palm-fringed Catseye Beach is an adults-only retreat. Every room has a private courtyard or balcony and interiors were designed with total relaxation in mind.
There are just fifty-seven ensuite rooms where you can enjoy gourmet dining, or head to the poolside Beach Club Restaurant for é la carte breakfast and fine dining at dinner time.
