So when it comes to finding the right location to spark some fireworks, here are six of the most romantic places in Victoria to kiss somebody.
Eureka Tower, Southbank
The southern hemisphere’s highest viewing platform, the Eureka Skydeck, offers 360 degree views of Melbourne’s CBD, Port Phillip Bay and Docklands. Finish off your exciting experience standing on ‘The Edge’, which is a projecting glass cube hanging 300 metres above the ground, with a surprise kiss. If not a reassuring hug that everything’s going to be ok!
The Yarra Valley
The stunning Yarra Valley provides some of the most romantic sights on the planet, with its enchanting rolling hills attracting couples year-round. Indulge yourself in gourmet food and wine at one of the area’s many superb wineries for a romantic lunch or dinner. A kiss and a toast to a wonderful day together is the perfect way to end your experience in this beautiful region.
Balloon flight, Melbourne CBD
Watch Melbourne start its day from the clouds above. While you’re hundreds of metres above the ground standing in the basket of a hot air balloon, marvel at the views of Melbourne’s famous skyline and the surrounding Port Phillip Bay. A truly romantic experience if you and your partner aren’t afraid of heights.
In a boat on Lake Daylesford
Daylesford, located in Victoria’s Spa Country, is famous for its mineral springs, massages and spectacular scenery. Hire a small rowing boat and go for a trip on the stunning Lake Daylesford, surrounded by trees which are reflected in the water. Whether you’re in a boat or watching from the shore, Lake Daylesford oozes romance and it’s a great spot to stop and give your other half a big kiss.
Tawonga Gap Lookout, High Country
Gaze down upon the beautiful mountain ranges of Victoria’s High Country while you’re standing 880 metres above sea level. A lovely, romantic spot with panoramic views of Mt Bogong (Victoria’s highest mountain) and the gorgeous Kiewa Valley. You may also want to bring your own picnic so you can relax and enjoy the views for longer.
Bay of Islands Coastal Park, Great Ocean Road
Just beyond the 12 Apostles is the Bay of Islands, which stretches from Peterborough to just before Warrnambool. It has superb ocean views, dramatic cliffs, rock stacks and quiet beaches where you can relax and share a special kiss with your partner.
