Romantic Experiences For Couples In Cairns
Cairns has become one of the most popular destinations for romantic getaways in Queensland. The coastal gem is a gateway to the world-famous Great Barrier Reef and the ancient wonders of the Daintree Rainforest.
Are you looking for romantic experiences in Cairns? Here are four ways to ensure your couples getaway in Cairns is one you’ll never forget.
1. Romantic Green Island Day Trip Experience
Green Island is the only coral cay on the Great Barrier Reef that also has a rainforest. The island is a haven for romance, relaxation and adventure. You can sip cocktails on the white-sand beach, snorkel coral reefs just offshore and stroll through the verdant rainforest.
This day trip also includes use of the resort’s swimming pool and dining outlets, a glass-bottom boat reef tour and snorkelling equipment. Want to make your Green Island experience even more unique? Upgrade to a helicopter transfer for incredible bird’s-eye views over the Great Barrier Reef.
2. Experience Behana Gorge Waterfall
Cairns is a beautiful place with many natural wonders within arm’s reach. Behana Gorge is just 30 minutes south of the city and is worth visiting if only for the breath-taking views. You’ll also find pristine swimming holes and waterfalls which cascade into deep ravines surrounded by lush rainforest trees.
It’s the perfect place to take your loved one for a romantic picnic. You’ll need to walk about 45 minutes along the creek to Clamshell Falls. Here you’ll find an oasis of water cascading into a refreshing swimming hole. Set up your picnic blankets and spend the afternoon snacking, swimming and soaking up nature.
3. Day Trip to Daintree Ecolodge
Want to discover the Daintree Rainforest during your stay in Cairns? Venture north to Daintree Ecolodge, a luxurious and environmentally friendly resort in the rainforest. You can book a romantic lunch for two at the resort’s Julaymba Restaurant, which overlooks a lagoon.
You might also want to pamper your loved one with a rejuvenating massage at the Daintree Wellness Spa. Wild-harvested Australian botanicals are combined with traditional Indigenous techniques to rebalance your mind, body and soul. There are numerous other experiences to be found here as well, from yoga and rainforest walks to fishing and horse riding. Who knows, you might just want to stay a night or two in a romantic treetop banyan.
4. Couples Day Spa Experience
When it comes to romantic experiences in Cairns, you can’t go wrong with a day spa. The city is home to numerous high-rated day spas offering a range of massages and treatments.
A couples massage is a great way for you both to get into the holiday mood. Just picture your first day on holiday getting pampered from head to toe with gentle, enriching products and therapeutic massage techniques. Many of the day spas also have treatments for mums-to-be (if you’re on a babymoon) and male-focused treatments.
