Everyone needs a little romance in their lives every now and then. If you’re planning on getting away from it all with the one you love there are a range of options within Australia that you can take full advantage of, but for a destination that ticks all the boxes, you can’t go past Queensland’s Gold Coast. A veritable playground for adults, the Gold Coast not only features several opportunities for parties, dancing, fine dining and luxury Gold Coast accommodation—it also boasts rolling hills, quiet towns, sleepy surf villages and breathtaking scenery. Whatever you think is the perfect couples’ getaway, the Gold Coast will provide it—and more. Here are just a few of the reason’s why the Gold Coast is perfect for couples:
A romantic weekend away together is not about slumming it. It’s about enjoying each other and the destination in pure and utter relaxation. If pampering and luxury are your idea of heaven, then the Gold Coast will not disappoint. Boasting several world class spas and beauty treatment facilities, you’ll find yourself spoiled for choice when it comes to massages, facials and other beauty treatments.
Once you’ve had your skin pampered, it’s time to move on to pampering your taste buds, and with some of the finest chefs and restaurants anywhere in Australia, you won’t have to look far to find something that entices and amazes. Surfer’s Paradise is particularly good for fine dining, but a simple search will uncover culinary gems throughout the region, all of which takes advantage of the sumptuous local seafood and fine fresh produce.
If the bright lights of Surfer’s aren’t really your thing, don’t be fooled into thinking that they’re all the Gold Coast has to offer. The Gold Coast is often lumped into the category of ‘party central’ by folks whose only experience of the region has been its popular city—but the reality is that the Gold Coast features pockets of peaceful coastline and stunning hinterland that are anything but loud! Take a trip into the hinterland and see sleepy little country towns and idyllic surf communities. Book yourself into a retreat for the weekend where the only other souls you’ll encounter will be koalas and dolphins, or simply pack a picnic and head on up into the hills to sit for a while with the love of your life.
The Gold Coast didn’t become one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations by accident—the sheer beauty of the region keeps people coming back year after year, as does the temperate weather and friendly locals. Nothing says romance like a walk on the beach at sunset, and you won’t find many more beautiful beaches than the ones scattered across the Gold Coast.
If you’re looking for a romantic getaway idea, stop looking—the Gold Coast is the perfect escape for the loved up among us! Just grab your travel insurance, book your hotel and let your gooey eyes do the rest…
