Planning the perfect romantic getaway can be difficult sometimes. Not only are we stuck while deciding on the best romantic place to visit, we hardly have time to figure out a good itinerary. Australia, however, holds the answer to all such minor hiccups. Without a doubt, it is an incredible destination for couples and MakeMyTrip offers several packages filled with irresistible activities which you can enjoy together.

Here is a sampler of what couples can do to unwind on the island continent:

A Self-drive along the Great Ocean Road in Melbourne 

Massive limestone stacks, stunning beaches, wildlife reserves and cascading waterfalls are among the many attractions that you get to see as you go on a relaxing self-drive trip along the Great Ocean Road. Stretching over 243 km of pristine scenic beauty facing the Antarctic Ocean, this drive is an experience to remember with your loved one. Stop by at Lorne, a picturesque town and visit Teddy’s Lookout for an incredible view of Saint George River surrounded by green low valleys as well as the gorgeous Great Ocean Road.

Wine Tours in Hunter Valley


Explore the quaint countryside of Australia by visiting Hunter Valley. Only a two-hour drive from Sydney, it is the oldest wine region in the land down under. Elevate your senses by taking the excellent wine tours in Australia and enjoy a private tasting session with your loved one. Head to the Hunter Distillery, a fine, locally owned distillery, and experience tasting the acclaimed organic vodka. We also recommend that both of you rejuvenate yourselves at the Heavenly Hunter by choosing from their range of massage therapies.

Hot-air Ballooning in Gold Coast and Melbourne


Floating in a massive balloon at 3,000 to 5,000 feet up in the air is thrilling, especially when you are with the one you love the most. In Gold Coast, opt for a hot-air ballooning experience early in the morning when the winds are steady and gentle. Watch the glorious sunrise from mid-air and enjoy far-reaching views of the Lamington National Park, the scenic plateau of the Tamborine Mountain, as well as the shimmering Gold Coast skyline. We recommend you opt for hot-air ballooning with champagne breakfast. On landing, both you and your partner will get to relish a mouth-watering traditional Australian breakfast with freshly squeezed juices, pastries and eggs. Later, you both can enjoy sipping champagne together.

Hot-air ballooning is also popular in Melbourne. Enjoy the splendid panoramas of the Yarra River during sunrise. And if the wind is gentle over the city, you will get spectacular views of the Eureka Tower and Port Philip Bay.  

Australia offers a plethora of experiences, made all the more special when you’re with your partner, creating some incredible memories. Choose from the many honeymoon packages to Australia.
