How do you get some quality time alone with your other half, coupled with panoramic views and romantic natural settings? By driving along some of Australia’s most scenic routes!
Australia’s picture-perfect scenery makes for an unforgettable romantic road trip you will never forget. Here are some must-try experiences:
The 75-Mile Beach, Fraser Island, Queensland
Take a direct flight from Brisbane to the Fraser Coast, hop onto a ferry for the 50-minute ride to Fraser Island, then rent a sturdy four-wheel drive to hit the sand on this 75-mile stretch (that’s a little over 120 kilometres) of unhindered beach for some mesmerizing experiences. Visit the volcanic rock formation of Indian Head — while there, you may spot whales, manta rays, dolphins and dugongs! Unwind together as you both float in the waters of the Champagne Pools, which foam as the waves crash on the rocks. Snap a couple shot at the Maheno shipwreck that lies stranded on the sand.
Hobart to Freycinet, Tasmania
This scenic two-and-a-half-hour’s drive north-east from Hobart takes you pass some stunning scenery, including the Prosser River, rugged mountain ranges and beautiful coastline. Drive through the quaint coastal towns of Orford and Tribuanna, the gateways to the World Heritage-listed Maria Island. Make a quick pit stop to take an Instagram-worthy shot of the convict-built Spiky Bridge at Rocky Hills. Then, continue on to the famed Swansea, haven to foodies and wine lovers. Once your tummies are full, head to Coles Bay to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and towering pink-granite peaks of the Freycinet coast. Take your time to savour the area’s many delightful offerings with your sweetheart.
Great Ocean Road to Apollo Bay, Victoria
Less than two hours’ drive from bustling Melbourne is Torquay — home to one of Australia’s most famous surf beaches and the start of the Great Ocean Road. Revel in breathtaking coastline views as you head to the resort town of Lorne, where you can dig into some fish and chips while relaxing together on the beach. Continue steering along the panoramic stretch of coastline towards Apollo Bay, located at the foothills of the Otways. Once here, take a dip in the beautiful waters of the Southern Ocean, go for a romantic horseback ride, and have an ocean-view dinner at Chris’s Beacon Point Restaurant and Villas.
