Unwind poolside at Halcyon House, Cabarita

Lean into the luxe Hamptons-meets-the-Mediterranean vibe at Halcyon House on the Tweed Coast, where your characterful room lies just steps from the sea. Join your loved one in lazing by the pool, being pampered at the spa, feasting at renowned onsite restaurant Paper Daisy and feeling the sea breeze in your hair as you explore Cabarita on vintage-style bikes.

Lap up the privacy at Blackbird Byron, Mullumbimby

Experience the North Coast holiday town of Byron Bay in a new way at Blackbird Byron, where five stylish, detached pavilion rooms tucked up in the Mullumbimby hinterland offer a memorable adults-only retreat for two. Gaze out over lush hinterland towards Cape Byron as you sip a cocktail beside the rejuvenating magnesium pool. Enjoy evening entertainment courtesy of a complimentary star-gazing manual, and tuck into wholesome breakfasts lovingly prepared by your friendly hosts.

Escape to the country at Goonoo Goonoo, Tamworth

Feel enlivened by the fresh Country NSW air on a road trip to Goonoo Goonoo Station, a working cattle station near Tamworth where a 19th-century heritage-listed pastoral village has been transformed into luxury accommodation. Cosy up with your bae in the Shearer’s Quarters, which now houses beautifully renovated pitched-roof rooms for couples. Cool off with a refreshing dip in the pool after days out exploring the area, and tuck into refined country fare at the hatted onsite Glasshouse Restaurant.

Savour wine country at voco Kirkton Park, Pokolbin

Celebrate your relationship with an indulgent stay at voco Kirkton Park Hunter Valley, a charming manor estate in Pokolbin, just a two-hour drive north of Sydney. Wrap up in plush robes and take in the sweeping wine-country views from your balcony as you sip your morning coffee, before striking out to traipse between the region’s cellar doors. Recharge with an elegant high tea overlooking the estate’s roses before settling in for an estate-to-plate dinner at the manor’s Locavore Restaurant.

Relax by the river at Marramarra Lodge, Hawkesbury

Feel a million miles from Sydney (but really only an hour away) at Marramarra Lodge, a stunning retreat overlooking the serene Hawkesbury River. Embrace the sense of escapism as you take the brief boat transfer to your stylish accommodation, be it a spacious glamping tent or a modern bungalow.

Indulge a love of design on Byng Street, Orange

Marvel at the marriage of historic architecture and modern design at the 22-room Byng Street Boutique Hotel in Orange, less than four hours northwest of Sydney, where heritage-wing rooms overlooking the gardens offer a incredibly romantic setting for a couples getaway.

Slow down in style at Bangalay, Shoalhaven Heads

Sync to the relaxing coastal soundtrack at Bangalay Luxury Villas in Shoalhaven Heads on the South Coast, where 16 self-contained villas nestle in nature just a short wander from Seven Mile Beach.

Get off the grid in luxury at Kimo Estate, Gundagai

Feel a deeper connection to your partner as you gaze up at the canopy of stars twinkling above your EcoHut at Kimo Estate, just 10 minutes outside Gundagai.
