Here are five great places for a kiss in Australia, from the Whitsundays all the way to Flinders Ranges. Pucker up!

The Whitsundays

A tried and true destination for loved-up couples, the Whitsunday islands never fall short.

It’d be wrong not to steal a smooch on Whitehaven Beach, one of the most beautiful stretches of shore you’re likely to lay eyes upon.

The water is crystal clear so you’ll see right to your toes and you’ll likely want to lie on the soft sand for hours as the sun beats down.

To get an unbeatable view, walk up to Tongue Point on Whitsunday Island for your smooch. The lookout gives you a view of the swirling tides and endless blue ocean. Bliss.


Head to a small town in Victoria, named Myrtleford. This old-worldly village is sure to inspire some romance in your relationship, with its gorgeous cycleways, walks and parks.

The village is renowned for vineyards and growing fresh produce like berries, so why not head to an intimate winery for your next sensational smooch?

Be sure to wander the Discovery Trail, which offers insight into the town’s intriguing gold mining past.

While you’re in town, be sure to visit the Butter Factory and its associated cafe. Sit down and savour delicious cakes and slice – all in front of a gorgeous view of Mt Buffalo. 


In terms of romantic sunsets, you don’t get much better than Broome. This Western Australian gem offers the best in surreal views of the dusk and dawn. Head to Cable Beach for the most spectacular view. Why not bring along a picnic and a bottle of bubbly so you can really enjoy the experience?

Adventurous couples might even be able to manage a quick kiss on the back of a camel, as tour operators lead guided camel walks across the shore.

For bonus Casanova points, head to the Horizontal Falls. Here, you can witness nature’s powerful ocean surges, a site sure to leave the both of you in awe.

The Hunter Valley

The Hunter Valley is a classic Aussie experience, offering beautiful vineyards, vast dusty-orange fields and outstanding fresh produce.

Push your boundaries with a peck in the air, travelling sky-high over the valley in a hot air balloon!

You’ll pass over an abundance of vines, beautiful homes and hotels and amazing peaks and troughs in the land. It will certainly be a kiss to remember and afterwards you can always head to one of the idyllic vineyards for a celebratory drop of red.

Flinders Ranges

Head into the wilderness with your loved one and get in touch with nature’s serenity.

At the Flinders Ranges, located in South Australia, you can experience the rugged and untamed scenery of the outback.

Take the Oodnadatta Track walk to Lake Eyre, a remote lake that can at times stand out bright turquoise amongst the dusty yellow desert. You might even be the only two there when you arrive – so enjoy this together time.

Within the Flinders Ranges there are plenty of other nooks and crannies to explore, with vast areas of rock and stone awaiting you. This unreal landscape is the perfect location for an otherworldly kiss.
