From New South Wales to beautiful Queensland and Victoria and beyond, there is a romantic getaway on this website that is just perfect for you and your special someone. If you are looking for something more, we think you’ll love the brand new digital magazine - Australia for Two.  This complimentary, contemporary guide has been put together by the editor’s of Holidays for Couples magazine and features some unique weekends away in just about every Australian state.

If you’re not quite sure where in Australia you want your holiday or honeymoon to be, head to our Where to Stay - Australia section and let your chosen accommodation dictate your state or territory … after all, many of the romantic retreats featured on www.holidaysforcouples.travel are the actual destination themselves (seriously, you’ll find it hard to leave!).

In the meantime, below you’ll find a range of articles, written by leading travel writers. As one of Australia’s longest-running travel magazine, there are hundreds of articles here, so sit back, grab a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and let our writers give you the low-down on some of Australia’s best short break destinations.

When we talk about indulgence in Southern Queensland Country we don't mean over-the-top extravagant resorts. We mean indulgence in the true sense - accommodation with class, charm and character, and being spoilt with access to the freshest locally-sourced regional produce. And out here, there's not just five stars, there's billions. Just look up at the vast night sky.
