A scenic 2 hour drive from our East Coast Car Rentals Sydney Airport makes the Hunter Valley Wine region even more inviting – a perfect match for a weekend road trip with your favourites.

The rolling grassy hills, breath taking scenery, world-class restaurants, and luxury accommodation is what makes it one of New South Wales Most Romantic destinations.
Adelaide Hills, SA
If you and your partner have spent any time traveling through France, Germany, or Europe – this is exactly where you need to be. Referred to by locals as the Land of Long Lunch, there are endless chances to enjoy some of Australia’s finest culinary options to add a spark of romance to your Valentine’s Day.
The European hillside is a perfect place to re-live your traveling romance. Enjoy peaceful mornings sipping espresso with a perfect croissant, your afternoon’s galivanting through the farmlands taking in the charming hill side views, and experiencing nights filled with food, laughter, and memories.

Palm Cove, QLD
This infamous stop along the Southeast Queensland Coast is ideal for those couples looking for a little slice of paradise. Located nearly perfectly in the middle of the East Coast Car Rentals branch in Cairns and Port Douglas, Palm Cove is only a 30 minute drive to the helicopter or ocean cruises of the Great Barrier Reef.
Hidden away on the coastline, the small slow-paced town of Palm Cove combines a kick-back and relax vibe with high-end luxury accommodation. Whether starting your day with a stroll down the stretching beach just steps from your door, or enjoying a pool side massage at the Alamanda Palm Cove Resort, you and your Valentine are sure to soak up the island lifestyle and live like a local. When you’re not taking advantage of the natural Palm Cove beauty or day spa amenities, a cruise down the esplanade will see you enjoy a variety of locally curated shops, a few cafes, and a surprisingly vibrant nightlife.
Ps. If you are game enough to wake up for sunrise one morning, you’ll know exactly why Palm Cove is one of Queensland’s most romantic destinations.
Cradle Mountain, TAS
Looking for a little adventure? More than just a quick tourist stop and photo op, Cradle Mountain has accommodation that is both luxurious and remote – making it unlike anything else Australia has to offer. Cosy up next the fire or relax in your private jacuzzi after a long day out on the trails before you enjoy a romantic dinner at the Cradle Mountain Lodge.
What makes this place even more spectacular? An early morning wake up call to enjoy the morning sunrise with your Valentine from the infamous Marion’s lookout that provides a sunrise that’s not easily replicated anywhere else in the world, but right here in Cradle Mountain.
A scenic 2 hour drive from East Coast Car Rentals Launceston branch, Cradle Mountain is ideal for any couple looking for a re-set amongst nature this Valentine’s Day.
Melbourne City or The Great Ocean Road typically tend to take most of the hype when it comes to visiting the state of Victoria. Daylesford is only an hour and half drive from our East Coast Car Rentals Melbourne Airport branch, making it an easy destination to visit when you need a little R&R and time away from the everyday hustle and bustle of Melbourne.
But what makes this place so romantic? Well, nearly everything! Daylesford is the heart of Australian spa country. Home to the most concentrated geothermal activity throughout the country, the Daylesford springs are a haven that is nestled away in the Victorian countryside. Home to some of the finest Eastern European inspired resorts in Australia, visiting Victoria’s spa country is something that can often be overlooked, but shouldn’t be forgotten on Valentine’s Day, or any other day!
