While Sydney and Melbourne often steal a lot of Australia’s thunder, Perth definitely deserves more of a look in. Perth is probably best known for its climate, beaches and laid-back lifestyle, but it’s also a great spot for romantic vacations.
When it comes to spots for dating Australia offers thriving cities, beautiful bush and stunning beaches, all of which provide a great romantic backdrop. Just remember to put Perth high on your list of places to go with your partner. If you’re stuck for inspiration then here are five of Perth’s best romantic vacation spots.
Cottesloe Beach Hotel
For romantic Australian holidays beaches are a total given, and Cottesloe Beach is one of Perth’s most popular. The Cottesloe Beach Hotel is a good mixture of luxury and casual, and you can either indulge in fine dining or just have an evening picnic on the beach. Finding something to do during the day will be no trouble as the beach provides hours of entertainment.
If you and your date feel like rest, relaxation and pampering then holing up in a luxury hotel for the weekend is a great option. You can start your day with breakfast in bed (care of room service), followed by a couple’s massage, and end the evening at one of the hotels’ numerous restaurants or venture out to try the local cuisine. The Burswood Intercontinental also comes with the usual amenities such as tennis courts, a gym, a day spa and pool. Or take your date for a night at the hotel casino if you feel like injecting a bit of fun into the weekend.
Perth dating options are not limited to just staying in hotels and lazing on beaches, however. Perth’s great outdoors can make for a very romantic holiday. Of course, you’ll need to judge whether or not a camping holiday is your date’s idea of romance, but if it is then there are loads of camping spots within easy reach of Perth. Camping makes for a relaxed and intimate holiday and means you get to spend lots of time with each other. The list goes on and on, but consider Wedge Island, Lancelin, Guilderton, Ledge Point and Wilbinga.
Picturesque Rottnest Island is just a short ferry ride from Perth and oozes romance. You can go for a long weekend or have an extended vacation as there’s a lot to do on the island all year round. Summer is of course the best time to go, with the water being warm and perfect if you and your loved one are snorkelling fans.
