We might all be in need of a romantic getaway this year. With that in mind, we’ve found Queensland’s best romantic getaways.
From the tranquil tropical isle of Orpheus Island to the pristine outback wilderness of Mount Mulligan, these romantic getaways in Queensland are sure to give you and your partner a well-earned escape. Discover more about these incredible couple’s holidays below, including memorable activities, pampering spa treatments and once-in-a-lifetime dining. It’s all thanks to the new XOXO packages at Orpheus Island Lodge, Mt Mulligan Lodge and the Daintree Ecolodge.
1. Discover the Great Barrier Reef at Orpheus Island Lodge
Whisk your loved one away to a Great Barrier Reef island paradise. Orpheus Island Lodge sets the stage for one of Queensland’s best romantic getaways with its XOXO Package. Couples are greeted with champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries in their opulent retreat overlooking a secluded bay and serene sunsets.
The spoils continue to come in the form of a private beach drop-off with a gourmet picnic hamper for lunch and a private dining experience on the starlit pier. This experience, called Dining with the Tides, includes a six-course degustation menu showcasing fresh local produce paired with select cellar wine.
2. Explore the Rainforest at the Daintree Ecolodge
The Daintree Ecolodge is a unique romantic getaway in Queensland, known for its seasonally fresh and sustainable dining, award-winning day spa and secluded rainforest bayans. The XOXO Package at the Daintree Ecolodge brings new levels of luxury and pampering to this romantic getaway.
We recommend opting for a Rainforest Bayan if you want utter privacy in your private bathtub overlooking the forest canopy. Leave one morning or afternoon free for your 60-minute spa treatment utilising pristine waterfall water and wild-harvested botanicals. Indulgence is also on the menu at the Julaymba Restaurant & Bar, where you’ll enjoy a private six-course degustation dinner by the lagoon.
3. Experience the Outback at Mt Mulligan Lodge
Romantic getaways in Queensland’s magnificent outback are best experienced at Mt Mulligan Lodge. The property is truly spectacular with its blend of rugged outback environment and modern luxuries. In fact, watching the red and orange glow across the escarpment of Mount Mulligan at sunset while sipping wine and sampling canapes is an experience couples never forget.
Booking the XOXO Package gives you the daily Mt Mulligan’s outback adventures, gourmet dining and scenery, a selection of quality wines, beers and spirits, along with a private stargazing experience. And let’s not forget about the champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries awaiting you in your outback hideaway with its own outdoor rustic bathtub and king-size bed.
4. Enjoy A Luxury Cruise on M.Y. Flying Fish
Want to experience the Great Barrier Reef like few others ever will? Book a once-in-a-lifetime romantic getaway aboard the luxurious M.Y. Flying Fish. Moored at Port Douglas, it offers unimaginable cruising around the Great Barrier Reef, giving you the freedom to snorkel off the back and anchor near deserted beaches.
The accommodation on board is the epitome of extravagance with king-size bedding, spa baths, air conditioning and Versace furnishings. The vessel has its own cook’s galley, three decks and a helicopter pad, in case you feel like flying in some friends or taking off for a bird’s-eye view of the reef.
