Green Behind The Gold: The Perfect Place For a Romantic Getaway

Are you looking for a romantic getaway with your partner? Do you want to experience the beauty of nature and the charm of a vibrant city? If so, you should consider visiting the Gold Coast. The Gold Coast is not only famous for its stunning beaches and exciting attractions, but also for its green hinterland, where you can find lush rainforests, scenic waterfalls, and cozy cottages. In this article, we will show you why the Gold Coast is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, and how you can make the most of your trip.


Take Your Love Sky High


You want to really impress your partner, right? Explore the breathtaking sights of the Gold Coast from above with the Gold Coast Helitours for an experience that will elevate your love to new heights.


In true James Bond fashion, your journey from boarding the plane to taking off will be similarly thrilling… cue Marina Mirage. You can view superyachts while strolling down the marina’s “runway” on Seaworld Drive in Main Beach before being greeted by the Helitours charter team at the business’s exclusive heliport. From there, a skilled pilot will strap you in and take you on tour unlike any other.



You can choose from various scenic tours with flight times ranging from 5 to 45 minutes, so you can travel comfortably and with style while taking in the city’s most famous landmarks. The central business district of Surfers Paradise and Q1 – the largest residential building in Australia – are among them, as are Seaway in the north’s Broadwater and The Spit’s aqua blue waters, and scenic views of the picturesque hinterland in the west of the Gold Coast. The Queensland coastline is nothing short of breathtaking, stretching from its most northern point all the way down to Coolangatta near the New South Wales border.


Visit Waterfalls


From our perspective, nothing is more romantic than deciding to go on a digital detox with your sweetheart and leave for the country. If a longer romantic getaway sounds ideal to you as well, get in your car, or arrange a heli transfer for an added special experience! Afterwards, drive to Lamington National Park.


Amazingly, a 4.6-kilometre walk from the track’s entrance (about a kilometre before you arrive at the O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat parking lot) will lead you to a lookout with spectacular scenery of the wider Morans Creek gorge and Morans Falls. At certain times of the year, after a downpour of rain, the waterfalls at 80 metres below are in full flow. However, the falls may only be a light drizzle during the drier months. Bring your own thermos and a picnic rug for the ideal spot to take in the sunrise over the mountains while sipping your morning coffee.




Indulge In World-Class Dining At A Secluded Retreat


Experience a night of luxury in the rainforest at Songbirds Rainforest Retreat, where you’ll enjoy award-winning cuisine and stunning natural surroundings. Bringing your loved one to this place will make you both feel like you’re in your own world. The place is so serene and truly romantic. You’ll always be happy heading to this place instead of the luxe attractions in the bustling city.


Dine Michelin-style at the property’s beautifully renovated Songbirds Restaurant for a French-inspired meal. It serves lunch and dinner from Thursday to Saturday, as well as Sunday lunch. Take note that reservations are required. You can choose from the à la carte menu or the highly regarded 6-course degustation with perfectly matched wines.


Songbirds Rainforest Retreat will deliver you their famous Breakfast Basket for free once you book directly with them at This basket will be sent to your room anytime you wish after 8 AM. The breakfast basket is full of good stuff, including fresh orange juice, yogurt, fresh milk, homemade quiche and date loaf, muesli, and fresh fruit.


You can also try their deep tissue massage, which costs $140 for 60 minutes, and $180 for 90 minutes. Having a full-body relaxation massage together is also a romantic idea, especially when you both want to destress from all the exhaustion and stress of life.


Returning to the Surfers Paradise shores, this boutique rainforest bungalow lodging set on a splendid 51-acre bliss on Tamborine Mountain is one you will be singing about long after you’ve returned home. Enjoy a pre-dinner beverage in your villa’s double spa bath, treat yourself and your significant other to a massage, or go exploring on foot through into the peaceful shaded rainforest and breathe in the fresh mountain air.
