There are plenty of gorgeous destinations across Australia that are perfect for a little getaway with the one you love.

Here are some of our top picks when it comes to romance Down Under - whether you're going to pop the question or simply want to spend some quality time with your other half.

Hamilton Island, Queensland

You can't get much more dreamy than a remote island. Just picture it - you and your loved one, wandering the shores, not another person in sight and only the sound of the gently lapping waves and rustling palm trees around you. Beautiful! 

Hamilton Island is one of the gorgeous islands in the Whitsunday Islands group, located on the edge of Queensland's Great Barrier Reef. That means you can expect stunning sea, perfect for snorkelling and diving excursions, and plenty of golden sand. 

Relax with luxury accommodation, indulge with a spa package or practise your swing with a game of golf. There are plenty of delectable eateries to choose from too, so arrive with an appetite. 

Wineglass Bay, Tasmania

Wineglass Bay regularly ranks as one of the world's best beaches. Its curved crescent moon shape, gorgeous turquoise water and white sand make it an absolutely dreamy destination.

Make your way from Hobart and spend some time in the region, soaking in the coastal and forest scenery. 

Stroll the shores hand in hand, and make time to wander up to the Wineglass Bay lookout point, which offers spectacular panoramic views. Why not pack a picnic and enjoy a romantic lunch amongst nature?

Palm Cove, Queensland

Tropical North Queensland is a beautiful part of the country. Here you can find Palm Cove, a gorgeous seaside village with a stunning beach. You just won't want to leave!

Being just a short drive from Cairns, this charming town is easily accessible. What's its number one activity? Relaxing on the beach, of course. Head there with your loved one and while away the days splashing in the surf, or hire some bikes and cycle along the promenade. 

You'll come home with a host of beautiful memories and holiday snaps to match. 

Daylesford, Victoria

Get away from city life in Melbourne with a romantic escape to Daylesford. This quaint town is all about pampering yourself, acting as the gateway to the refreshing Hepburn Springs.

With a large number of spas, retreats, health centres and other relaxing facilities, it's the perfect destination for anyone looking to truly unwind with their loved one. Steeped in nature, there are plenty of pleasant parks to visit and walks to take. 

Another of Daylesford's delights is its food, so expect sumptuous restaurants and be sure to visit a local winery for a cellar door tasting.

Broome, Western Australia

Who says the Wild West can't be a hopeless romantic's dream?

Dramatic sunsets, picturesque scenery and a wonderful atmosphere await you and your loved one at this coastal town.

Home to Australia's pearl trade why not hunt for these precious stones with your partner? Or perhaps you'd like to head out on a daytime boat trip to see some of the region's marine life up close.

Then there are the evening camel rides along Cable Beach, which are made extra spectacular when the sky lights up in yellow, blue, pink, purple and more as the sun goes down.

With a pristine and untouched vibe, Broome's rugged charm will sweep you and your sweetheart off your feet.

Take a break from real life with the romantic getaway of your dreams at one of these beautiful spots around Australia. You deserve it.
