Thalia Haven, Little Swanport, Tasmania

The Enchanted Cave, Love Cabins, Blue Mountains, NSW
Bring out your primal instincts at The Enchanted Cave in the Blue Mountains, NSW. This self-catering guesthouse offers unique accommodation ideally suited to couples looking for some alone time. Forget your inhibitions and rediscover your primitive side. The comfy queen size bed is set into the bedrock and affords expansive views over lush bushland below.

Sal Sali, Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia
If you’ve never thought of sleeping in a tent as a romantic experience then you definitely haven’t been to Sal Sali, Cape Range National Park, Western Australia. At Sal Sali they take glamping to a whole new level. You’ll find spacious, luxurious ensuite tents, overlooking kilometres of pristine coastline. The handmade jarrah beds and quality linen are so inviting, you’ll never want to leave.
The Giraffe Treehouse at Jamala Wildlife Lodge, Canberra, ACT
Now Canberra might not spring to mind as a typically romantic destination, but Jamala Wildlife Lodge is not a typical Australian hotel. Set amongst lush surroundings, the Giraffe Treehouses offer a very unusual feature, the option to feed “Hummer” the giraffe from your balcony! The beautiful four-poster beds and luxurious rooms have a distinctively African feel to bring out your wild side.
Thorngrove Manor Hotel, Stirling, South Australia
