Queensland’s Most Romantic Retreats
Explore The Best Of The Queensland Outback At Mt Mulligan Lodge
With the majestic Mount Mulligan as its backdrop, Mt Mulligan Lodge is one of the newest and most romantic luxury Queensland retreats and offers an outback experience like no other. Early birds can watch the sunrise over the Hodgkinson Valley or, for the later risers, meet at the Sunset Bar and soak up the pristine surroundings and tranquil atmosphere with a drink in-hand as Mount Mulligan glows red in the evening sun.
For a truly romantic dining experience, indulge in a seven-course ‘Dining Under the Stars’ candlelit dinner on the edge of the weir. Mt Mulligan’s Executive Chef will work with you to plan your ideal menu, and the spellbinding view of thousands of stars overhead makes this private dining experience absolutely unforgettable.
Discover The Great Barrier Reef Like Never Before At Orpheus Island Lodge
In addition to its unrivalled luxury accommodation and experiences, Orpheus Island Lodge is a foodie’s paradise, having recently been awarded a Chef’s Hat in the 2019 Australian Good Food Guide. For the ultimate in luxury Queensland escapes, spoil yourselves with a Great Barrier Reef tour to discover the pristine fringing reefs.
Let the Orpheus team guide you to some of the most beautiful, private and secluded dive sites on the Great Barrier Reef like Pelorus Island. Or, take the helm of a motorised dinghy with a chef-prepared gourmet spread and discover the many private coves that envelope Orpheus Island.
Find Yourself Surrounded By Nature At The Daintree Ecolodge
Melt away any stress with a decadent indigenous-inspired massage treatment tailored to your body’s needs at the Daintree Wellness Spa. For an even more relaxing experience, have your couple’s massage outdoors, surrounded by the iconic Daintree Rainforest and the on-site waterfall.
But, if you’re after a romantic adventure with a little more pace, take in Cape Tribulation on horseback, and have the Daintree Ecolodge chefs prepare you a gourmet picnic hamper from locally-sourced ingredients.
