Romantic Getaways and Weddings

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 together.

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.

The Heights Heritage House and Garden

The house and 'old world' garden at The Heights dates back to the 1850s. The house was built in 1855 and is remarkable for being the largest (14 rooms) German, prefabricated house in Victoria.

The heights retains a small collection of fine Georgian furniture collected by the last owners, Louis and Marnie Whyte. Early 1860s plantings still dominate this beautiful Geelong garden today and the aged oaks and conifers provide great delight to visitors. Garden or self-guided garden walks are available.
