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.

Tropical Queensland is an oasis for loved-up couples looking for lovely spots to relax in each other's company - and there's no place like the seaside resort town of Port Douglas for weekend getaways in Australia.

With a long, white sand beach, warm water and a quaint township lined with palm trees, it's the perfect spot for a lovers' jaunt.

Tasmania is one of Australia's hidden gems, and is great for couples who don't want to travel far, but still want to feel a world away.

The island state contains many breathtaking national parks, so there is no shortage of choice for those couples that want to hole away in a private forest retreat, or enjoy strolling along a deserted beach, hand in hand.
