If you’re looking to stay local, a staycation at one of Australia’s top tier hotels such as one of the many RACV Clubs or The Langham, Melbourne, can be a romantic and relaxing retreat.
If your significant other is a foodie, consider gifting a gourmet experience. Our country is known for its culinary delights and has no shortage of fantastic restaurants. Book a reservation at a Michelin-starred restaurant like Quay or Vue de Monde, or if you prefer something more laid back, consider a food and wine tour. The Yarra Valley region boasts some of Australia’s best wines, and a guided tour can be a unique way to spend the day.
For a more unique gift, consider giving something handmade or locally sourced. Check out the many artisan markets available, such as The Rocks Markets in Sydney or the Queen Victoria Market in Melbourne.
