Walks along windswept beaches, wine by an open fire (or, in
summer, on a balcony overlooking the ocean) or finding a secret
spot in the rainforest for a picnic - sounds like old fashioned
Hollywood romance, but it's all possible in the region.
The spectacular scenery of the Great Ocean Road area adds a sense
of grandeur to a holiday for two, but there are many more things
for couples to do that will let the love flow.
Share an amazing meal at an award winning country restaurant, a pub
with a view or on a patch of sand. Explore wineries, meet the
winemaker and learn a little about the craft so you have a better
appreciation of wines you both enjoy.
Experience new things together as a couple, like a horseback trail
ride, a zip line adventure, learning to scuba dive or swimming with
wild dolphins. Or take a paddle at sunset to view the elusive
platypus in the wild at Lake Elizabeth - such a special encounter
that will hold strong memories of quality time spent
There are terrific accommodation properties in the region perfect
for a romantic retreat. Think king sized beds, luxurious
appointments, open fires and double spas.
With so much love in the air, Geelong, Bellarine and the Great
Ocean Road are terrific destinations for weddings. Within an hour
and a half of the Melbourne CBD there are stunning venues, photo
locations and regional centres with the full range of services and
facilities you'd expect when organising your nuptials.
