Babymoons have become an increasingly popular item on pre-baby checklists and it’s fair to say it’s in everyone’s best interest that those on the cusp of parenthood partake in a second trimester holiday to relax and rejuvenate before bub is welcomed into the world.
Whether you’re an expectant parent seeking an outback adventure, an island escape or a rainforest retreat, before confirming babymoon ideas with your significant other, check out these babymoon packages that Queensland has to offer.
Babymoon Idea 1: Mt Mulligan Lodge
Take a 35-minute scenic helicopter journey from Cairns to experience the serenity of the Queensland outback within the captivating landscape of Mount Mulligan. Located on a secluded 28,000-hectare heritage site and hosting only 16 guests, Mt Mulligan Lodge provides parents-to-be with all-inclusive babymoon packages in luxury outback accommodation, including a designated electric golf buggy for use during your stay.
Take some time out to enjoy a leisurely dip in the infinity pool, discover the history and points-of-interest of the region on a guided all-terrain vehicle (ATV) tour, savour a chef-prepared gourmet picnic whilst wildlife spotting, and end each day with a mocktail sundowner at the rustic Sunset Bar. Mt Mulligan Lodge is one babymoon destination you won’t want to miss.
Babymoon Idea 2: Orpheus Island Lodge
Orpheus Island Lodge is the ultimate tropical destination for all-inclusive babymoon packages. Only a 30-minute scenic helicopter flight from Townsville, you’ll be whisked away to this island paradise where just 28 indulged guests are accommodated for in beachfront retreats overlooking the Coral Sea. Due to its intimacy, the chefs will cater to your every craving and dietary requirement when whipping up gourmet meals, picnic hampers and snacks.
If privacy is what you’re seeking, take a motorised dinghy and gourmet picnic hamper to your own private beach, indulge in a pregnancy massage at the Gwandalan Day Spa or relax with your favourite book and mocktail by the infinity pool.
Babymoon Idea 3: Daintree Ecolodge
Immerse yourself in the majestic nature of the world’s oldest tropical lowland rainforest at the Daintree Ecolodge, where you’re granted the chance to reconnect your mind, body and soul in a location where the lush rainforest, pristine coastline, and fringing coral reef landscapes meet.
A 90-minute drive from Cairns, you’ll call one of the 15 eco-friendly ‘bayans’ (treehouses) home as you discover the private on-site waterfall, local swimming holes, guided nature walks, Daintree Wellness Spa and nearby landmarks, including the Great Barrier Reef, Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge. Book a three-night ‘Indulge Package’ for the ultimate in relaxation.
