Witnessing wildlife in its natural habitat is not just a thrilling activity, but one that brings a couple closer together when shared. Australia’s fascinating wildlife includes adorable little penguins, with one of the best opportunities for sightings located on Phillip Island during the Penguin Parade.

Little penguins are the smallest penguins in the world and, due to their size, are sometimes referred to as “fairy penguins”. Show your soft side during the excursion by letting out the expected adoration for the waddling birds as they travel up the sandy coastline to their nests at sunset.

2. Find Spirit in the Fruit of the Vine

Australian winemakers have lept to the forefront of worldwide recognition by producing vintages of high quality and wide variety. With so many wine regions, sampling the fruit of the vine is no longer about sipping glass after glass from a local vineyard and instead immerses you deep inside the gorgeous landscape of the diverse regions.

Adelaide hosts the title of the official Great Wine Capital of Australia, which is a network of nine cities across the globe sharing a cultural and economic connection to wine. Even if you prefer grape juice to wine, you can explore picturesque landscapes and indulge in secluded country roads.

3. Indulge in an Irresistible View

The different types of hot-air balloon rides across Australia offer unique panoramic views of the continent’s indelible and distinct beauty, from the Gold Coast to the Outback, Melbourne to the Hunter Valley.

4. Embrace Romance on a Road Trip

Few excursions have been more romanticized around the world than the idea of a couple’s road trip. You can create the soundtrack to the passing landscape as you breathe fresh life into the expansive distances between destinations. A couple’s road trip adheres to the belief that the journey is as important as the destination.

Take the time to stop the car, run through the white sands of an undiscovered beach in Western Australia, or snap a photo at a viewpoint stretching out over the Blue Mountains in New South Wales. A private road trip is perfect for exploration, freedom, and a hint of romance found in the solitude.

5. Bask in a Secluded Island Resort

Australia and romantic island escapes go hand in hand. The continent boasts over 8,000 islands, with a variety celebrated for their tropical luster. A remote island paradise embodies passion with the promise of sunshine, lush greenery, glowing coral reefs, shimmering transparent water, and luxurious amenities.

The relaxed and unhurried ambiance allows you and your partner to settle into unfettered intimate moments. On a number of island escapes, you may be more likely to see a whale swimming offshore than another person relaxing on the beach.
