Reconnect with your favourite people over fine food shared in spectacular surroundings on a special-occasion getaway to the New South Wales North Coast. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a milestone birthday or simply seizing an opportunity to relax and rekindle cherished relationships, memorable stays and premium dining experiences abound.

Savour the Tweed

Nod off to a calming seaside playlist DJed by nature on an indulgent group getaway to the Tweed, at the northeastern tip of NSW. Just metres from the dreamy white sands of Kingscliff Beach, Marine Beach House sleeps up to 11 in five light, airy coastal-chic bedrooms, with plenty of space for entertaining, as well as nooks for relaxing.

Kick off your celebrations with a sumptuous contemporary Australian lunch at award-winning Paper Daisy restaurant in nearby Cabarita, set within boutique hotel Halcyon House, a similarly stylish getaway option ideal for discerning couples. Bond over the delightful flavours of the shared set menu available for groups of four to 20. Superb service combined with the sophisticated simplicity of dishes such as goldband snapper with grilled fennel, sorrel and citrus salmoriglio are bound to make it a memorable meal.

Or wow your crowd with lunch or dinner at Pipit in Pottsville, known for its creative takes on local and native produce cooked over wood and charcoal. Owner and head chef Ben Devlin’s flavour-packed three- and eight-course menus change frequently, assuring a new culinary adventure on every visit.

Retreat to the Byron Bay hinterland

Revel in the ethereal sight of the morning sun illuminating the mist-shrouded hills of the Byron Bay hinterland as you sip coffee on the wraparound deck of heritage-listed Hinterland House. Set on a macadamia orchard in Bangalow, 45 minutes south of Tweed Heads, this grand homestead with soaring ceilings and original artworks is flanked by two self-contained cottages, with space to sleep up to 16 of your nearest and dearest on the property.

Travel just five minutes up the road by car to The Hut, where a former schoolhouse framed by subtropical greenery sets the scene for a Mediterranean-style long lunch to remember. Here groups of eight and above are treated to the signature banquet menu featuring a seasonal selection of dishes designed to be shared as the sun streams in and the wine flows.

Chill out on the Coffs Coast

Relive the nostalgia of the beach holidays of your childhood on a relaxing escape with your family to Diggers Beach Cottage on the Coffs Coast, a 5.5-hour drive north of Sydney. Lap up the low-key vibe of your seaside base, just a 10-minute drive from Coffs Harbour, as you make yourself at home in the beautifully renovated, three-bedroom cottage sleeping up to seven people, perfect for a large or intergenerational family.

Follow a short track down to the sand to enjoy long, lazy days on the beach, then channel your inner top chef as you whip up a fancy feast for your brood in the modern kitchen. Or settle in for a relaxed brunch or lunch at licensed café The Hilltop Store, a 20-minute drive south in Sawtell, where the refined yet accessible menu could feature anything from house-cured salmon with avocado, grains, kimchi and a poached egg to a crispy buttermilk chicken burger with chipotle and vinegar slaw.

Come together on the Central Coast

Spoil a special someone with a bucket-list stay within easy reach of the city at Pretty Beach House on the Central Coast, just a 90-minute drive north of Sydney. Or book all four pavilions and revel in the exclusivity of having the run of the house at this sophisticated retreat overlooking its namesake beach on the Bouddi Peninsula.

You needn’t concern yourself with menu prices or splitting bills here, with all meals, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages and a considered selection of fine wines, cocktails and beers all included. Strike out to cool off at gorgeous beaches and hike peaceful walking tracks in neighbouring Bouddi National Park, or simply enjoy the luxurious property perched on a spectacular escarpment, savouring the sumptuous cuisine, dreamy infinity pool, serene spa, cosy guest lounge and elegantly furnished bedrooms at your leisure.
