Picturesque gardens, a stunning skyline, and a fun-filled nightlife, there’s no better place to enjoy a romance-filled holiday!

When travelling around Australia, there is no greater place for multiculturalism, food, nightlife, and art, than the famous Melbourne City. The city is lined with narrow graffiti lanes, beautiful cafes, and rooftop bars, offering an unforgettable and funky stay in the cultural capital of Australia. If you are looking for a romantic getaway with your partner, look no further, as Melbourne promises the perfect place to unearth and unwind together.

  • Birds Eye View at Eureka Tower

    See the city sights all at once when you travel up to the very top of the city’s 297.3-metre skyscraper. Eureka promises 360-degree views of Melbourne and its surrounds with floor to ceiling windows. With interactive activities and a café up top so you can enjoy a coffee or even sparking while marvelling at the view. For a thrilling adventure, join on the edge activity, which extends Eureka’s 88th floor, suspending you nearly 300 meters over in a glass cube. The cube has clean floors and walls, giving you a genuine bird’s-eye view of the streets below.

  • Share a bottle at Yarra Valley

    Escape the bustling city centre and venture out to the Yarra Valley winery region. With Victoria’s best wine brands scattered within the lush countryside scenery. Enjoy shopping from one winery to the next, trying out an endless amount of crisp whites, sharp reds, and sweet bubbles. Click your glasses together and kick back to relax, marvelling at the gorgeous greenery surrounding you.

    See some of Australia’s most beloved animals up close and personal! The Little Penguin, the smallest and in our opinion cutest penguin in existence, nests along Phillip Island’s coast.
