Romance is defined as the feeling of mystery, excitement, and remoteness from everyday life. Step outside of the box and swap your chocolates, rose petals and candlelit dinners for the adventure and excitement of the Great Barrier Reef. To make things easy for you, we’ve compiled the following list of romantic things to do at the Great Barrier Reef.
One of the best ways to take in the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is from the water, so take out a catamaran and venture out into the waters of the Great Barrier Reef. You and your loved one can enjoy quality time together in a unique and beautiful setting, perfect for creating memories for years to come.
Just because you’re doing romance a little differently at the Great Barrier Reef, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the luxury that often comes with a bit of romance. Indulge in a couples spa day, and relax and reconnect with your partner. The Gwandalan Spa at Orpheus Island Lodge offers signature spa treatments designed to reflect the tranquillity and uninterrupted beauty of the island.
The Great Barrier Reef is teeming with exotic fish, colourful coral and incredible wildlife. Experiencing the garden of exotic marine life and coral with a partner is a special one to share, and definitely one to remember. With your stay at Orpheus Island Lodge, you can enjoy unlimited use of snorkelling and diving equipment.
There is no better way to take in the serene beauty of the Great Barrier Reef than from the water on a kayak. Imagine watching the sunset on the water in your lovers arms – you just can’t beat it. Perhaps you’re a more adventurous couple and prefer to explore the mangroves just off Orpheus Island, within the sheltered bay.
For the more traditional romantic, a picnic with the Great Barrier Reef as a backdrop will really step things up a notch. Watching the sunset over the incredible Great Barrier Reef’s crystal clear water with gourmet food, what more could you ask for? The All Loved Up package at Orpheus Island includes the signature Dining With The Tides experience, which is perfect for those special romantic occasions.
