Hidden mountain pools where the water feels like silk. Tumbling waterfalls framed by dewdrop-splashed ferns. Secluded picnic spots on the banks of a babbling brook. Cosy cabins with alfresco spas surrounded by lush sub-tropical rainforest. If ever a destination was designed for romance by Mother Nature herself, it would have to be the Tweed Valley in northern NSW.
Midway between the Gold Coast and Byron Bay and nestled within the caldera of an ancient volcano, the Tweed ticks every box for couples in search of the ultimate romantic getaway.
BEAUTIFUL SCENERY – Picture an enveloping, rich and fertile World Heritage rainforest. Imagine spectacular lookouts, perfect stops along an afternoon drive. Take a swim beside secluded waterfalls, or enjoy the rolling green hills, patch-worked farmlands and tranquil rivers.
Many Brisbane residents – this writer included – say the city comes into its own in winter and early spring. The humidity, thunderclaps and downpours of summer are gone, replaced by mild, sunny days and clear, star-filled nights.
The months of May to September are ideal for a short, warm, romantic break in the Queensland capital.
Start by treating yourselves to a few nights at the Emporium Hotel in Fortitude Valley – it is streets ahead of other hotels in Brisbane for design and panache. The husband-and-wife team that owns the place has created a modern design gem with a hot cocktail bar sporting an eclectic mix of furniture and chandeliers, and a hip rooftop deck and lap-pool. The rooms are sleek and sexy with black, white and golden-brown colour schemes and frangipani-motif panels. The Emporium Suites are the go: each has a vast bathroom, large spa bath and private balcony.
Take your time and explore the coast and hinterland on this holiday road trip between Sydney and Byron Bay …
For many of us, a drive along the New South Wales north coast is a blur lost in the holiday rush of getting from A to B. But get off the highway and onto the back roads and you’ll soon find there’s much more than roadhouses and petrol stations to see along the way. Think beautiful beaches; wild World Heritage-listed national parks and rainforest; lush, fertile farmland valleys laced with wide fish-filled rivers and an array of interesting villages and regional towns hiding some of the state’s best kept holiday secrets.
