What could be more enjoyable on romantic getaways in Victoria (Australia) than to cosy up with your special someone looking over a stunning view with the sun setting over the ocean? 

For over 100 years, the Great Ocean Road has been the place for couples-time whether they’re just getting to know each other, popping the question on a sand dune at sunrise, or choosing the district to host their wedding and anniversary celebrations. Year-round, the district offers a huge variety of food and drink as well as things to do and places to see on romantic holidays in Victoria.

What to Do on a Romantic Winter Getaway in Victoria

Both our coastline and hinterland bring a special allure during the winter months. You can:

  • Take a walk on a secluded beach where you and your partner are the only people making footprints in the sand. 
  • Keep an eye out for whales breaching as they head from the Antarctic towards their breeding grounds. 
  • Wander into the national parks hand-in-hand to see forests rich with life and autumn rain-fed, free-flowing rivers. 

What to Do on a Romantic Summer Getaway in Victoria

Of course the sand, surf and sun are popular during the summer months. On top of this, our top tips are to:

  • Rent a room, an entire house or apartment within walking distance from the ocean and head down for a swim at the top and tail of a quality day. 
  • Drive into the hinterland to enjoy our spectacular produce from the farm-door. 
  • Go to the Great Otway National Park at dusk to see fireflies buzzing and glowing in dizzying patterns.
