Here are our top recommendations from our 13 Australian brands, home to memory-making experiences that will be savoured long after the clock strikes midnight:   

Journey Beyond Cruise SydneyThere is something so romantic about Sydney Harbour—where picturesque gardens, private bays and gorgeous beaches meet a stunning urban skyline. Relish in the food and flavours of Sydney aboard a dreamy, all-inclusive cruise featuring a regionally focussed menu full of the influences that make Sydney a food haven, accompanied by an extensive wine list. Book your all-inclusive experience for Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday and make this Valentine’s Day weekend one to remember with a romantic dinner cruise departing from King Street Wharf, No.8, Darling Harbour at 6:10pm ($179 per person).

Melbourne Skydeck & Bar 88The Melbourne Skydeck experience dazzles, entertains, and informs through its spectacular and ever-changing views. Have fun exploring Skydeck’s new VR attractions including the Voyager Theatre, an immersive sensory experience – the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. Complete your experience with a visit to Bar 88 to watch the changing colours of Melbourne as the sun sets while sipping Champagne Bollinger and a selection of gourmet nibbles. Usually closed on Mondays, Melbourne Skydeck is open especially for Valentine’s Day from 5:00pm to 10:00pm (last entry 9:30pm).  

Eureka 89In a city that thrives on food, wine and culture, there are few better places to experience the heart and soul of Melbourne than at the Eureka 89 dining room. Towering 300 metres above sea level, enjoy breathtaking views of Melbourne whilst indulging in our chefs’ tasting menus. Special dining events are planned throughout the year, including Valentine’s Day, to mark moments of celebration.

Darwin Harbour CruisesYou haven’t seen a sunset until you’ve seen a Darwin sunset. Relax onboard our newly refurbished Charles Darwin catamaran as the boat glides through the Harbour waters. The hazy sunset changes the sky with warm tones making a picturesque backdrop for the romantic evening. Choose either a sit-down dinner or a gourmet grazing platter with a free glass of sparkling with any booking made for the February 14 sunset cruise.  

Cruise WhitsundaysDepart from famous Airlie Beach on Cruise Whitsundays’ all-inclusive Valentine’s Day sunset cruise.  Your evening begins with the sun still high and warm in the sky. Sit back, relax, and take in your surrounds while enjoying the included alcohol and beverage options and a delicious charcuterie board. Step off the boat at Pioneer Bay and head into town, carrying the romance of the night with you.   

Rottnest ExpressWhisk your loved one away to idyllic Rottnest Island for a mid-week break with Rottnest Express. Take the afternoon ferry leaving Fremantle for an evening cool down on a balmy summer night. Relish in dinner by the beach with ample restaurant and café options. Return on the 9pm ferry or extend your stay with overnight accommodation on the island – it’s true summer romance.
