A Guide To Planning A Romantic Getaway On The Great Barrier Reef

Things To Do

Snorkelling & Diving

One does not visit the Great Barrier Reef without checking out the vibrant world beneath. What better way to see how marine-life live than a day of snorkelling and diving the fringing reefs with your loved one. As you take your love to new depths and admire the giant clam garden, coral bommies, and over 1,000 species of reef fish, you’ll realise your partner isn’t the only one capable of taking your breath away during this underwater date.



Sailing and champagne; can you name a more romantic duo? Everything about a chartered sailing scenario is deep – the conversation, eye-gazing and the water beyond the vessel’s edge. So, pop the champagne and prepare for a serene sunset as our skipper takes you on an intimate Great Barrier Reef sailing trip that you’ll never forget.

Picnic Adventure

Let our chefs take the lead in directing a cupid’s arrow into the stomach of your main squeeze with a carefully curated gourmet picnic to meet your all your needs. Sneak off to one of the nearby secluded coves on a motorised dinghy and lose hours chatting whilst savouring gourmet nibbles. And, forget any rules surrounding public displays of affection, because private beaches were made for it! 


Helicopter Ride

Show your loved one that the sky’s the limit with a scenic helicopter flight over the reef courtesy of Nautilus Aviation; an experience that will send you soaring to admire the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef region from above. Making one pit-stop on your own private sand cay for an intimate lunch and splash, this scenic joyride is a must on your romantic getaway bucket list.

Great Barrier Reef Spa Package

Gwandalan Spa

Dial up the romance with a relaxing treatment at the resident Gwandalan Spa. All the spa treatments on the menu are decadent, however if you’re looking for something a little more memorable, request the Island Exotics Beach Massage. Taking place beneath the swaying palm trees, you’ll drift away as your senses surrender to the sound of lapping tides and the touch of healing hands.


Dining with the Tides

Spoil your loved one when you meet with our experienced culinary team to create the perfect menu for your signature Dining with the Tides experience. Taking place upon the island’s starlit pier with views beyond the Coral Sea, a degustation dinner paired with wines from a select master list will be the peak of your romantic getaway.
