There are a number of different amazing romantic getaways you can plan, but few people think of a road trip as one of the options. That’s because most people focus on the destination, not the trip itself. The drive, however, can truly be a great romantic adventure for you and your spouse (or significant other). This is especially true for those who don’t get to spend a lot of time together. Getting away on the open road, where it’s just the two of you for hours, can actually be a great way to reconnect. Here are a few of the most romantic road trip options in Australia that might be perfect for you.
The East Coast of Tasmania
It might sound odd to fly or to take a boat to Tasmania only to end up renting a car or campervan to drive the coast, but it’s definitely a trip worth taking. There are many amazing places to see, including Wineglass Bay, Maria Island, and the Freycinet Peninsula. You can hike through the Hazards at Freycinet or spend some time on the beach before heading back to your vehicle. This is a road trip that has amazing things to do around each turn, and everything is fairly close together. You won’t have to experience hours stuck in your car or campervan.
Do a Lap
When people mention doing a lap of Australia, they mean driving in a circle around the entire country. Some do an interior lap, which is shorter, while others drive around the entire coastline. This amazing drive gives you a chance to see just about everything Australia has to offer. You may even want to hire a campervan so you don’t have to worry about lodging or always having to find a place to eat. You can set up your camp in a number of different places, and as long as you’ve gone shopping before you leave, you can cook whenever you’re hungry.
Driving around Australia offers so many things to do that you can literally take this driving holiday multiple times and never see the same things twice. It’s perfect for the couple that wants to explore something new while spending time together.
Take the Great Ocean Road
If you live in Victoria, the Great Ocean Road is an excellent road trip option. It’s one of the more well-known drives in the country, but it’s still worth it, especially if you’ve never taken it before. You’ll find great beach towns as well as a number of other locations where you can stop and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean. If you’re in a campervan, you may even find places to camp that aren’t far from the calming waters.
Drive The Great Alpine Road
The Great Alpine Road, which is also located in Victoria, takes you through one of the food regions of the country. If you love food, you’ll enjoy this route. You can spend time in Myrtleford, Bright, Harrietville, and Dinner Plain, all of which feature great dining options as well as other fun activities.
