The Most Romantic Holiday Destinations around Australia

It might not be everyone's first thought, but there is something so romantic about holidaying in a motorhome. You have the freedom to go anywhere, direct access to the ocean and a fridge that comes everywhere with you – that can constantly get filled up with fresh seafood and local wine!

Through the day, you can try the local restaurants and go on a romantic stroll together, and by night you can relax in front of a fire or tv – with all the gorgeous food you've found together!

With Valentine's Day ahead, bookings are becoming limited, and romance is at the forefront of people's minds. So, we've compiled a list of the most romantic holiday destinations in Australia - from the vineyards of Mudgee to an adventure-packed getaway to Glass House Mountains.
