Your guide to romantic accommodation in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

If you are in search of a Queensland short break or weekend away that's just a hop, skip and a jump from Brisbane, let us tell you as Brisbane locals that it is hard to go past the beautiful mountain towns of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. With intimate cottages and B&Bs situated around quaint villages like Maleny, Montville and The Glass House Mountains, couples searching for the perfect Sunshine Coast Hinterland romantic getaway are spoilt for choice when it comes to luxurious and unique getaways.


Melbourne’s not the only culinary hotspot in Victoria – eat and drink your way around a state bursting with flavour.

Short breaks are the perfect getaway for couples because they can easily fit into our busy schedules. Great for a weekend away or snag the Friday or Monday off as well for a little extra time in romantic paradise. This collection of boutique short break accommodation from the east coast of Australia is a sneak peek of what's to come in our next issue of Holidays For Couples magazine on sale next week.

Wellington is the cool capital of New Zealand, perfect for that special weekend getaway. As Sian Edwards discovers, this compact harbour city has all the goods to keep you both occupied and is only a hop, skip and jump across the Tasman Sea.
