Take to the Skies

What could be dreamier than floating above the beautiful landscape of the Atherton Tablelands in a hot air balloon? If you’re looking for the ultimate romantic experience, nothing could possibly beat the intimate nature of hot air ballooning. Holding your loved one close as you watch the world wake up below you? Hard to think of anything to top that. And for the hopeless romantics looking to pop the question, what better setting than high above in a balloon?

Enjoy a Picnic

Take a picnic to one of the many beauty spots on the Atherton Tablelands. Choose between mountain streams and waterfalls, rolling green countryside or forest fringed lakes. Spread out a blanket, open the hamper and drink in the view.

Indulge – you are on your honeymoon! This is a foodie’s paradise with scores of places to explore where you can see goodies grown, picked and processed. Try some new fruits, taste some delicious locally made cheese or chocolates, indulge in dairy treats, enjoy the homegrown wines and spirits and take time for morning or afternoon tea of Atherton Tablelands-grown tea or coffee and delicacies.

Mountain Retreats

Treat yourself to a romantic hideaway at one of the many retreats, lodges or cottages on the Tablelands. These cosy, well-appointed accommodations are tucked away in the gorgeous landscape for ultimate privacy. There’s no need to deprive yourself – there are plenty of luxurious places in the area, that you may never want to leave.

In addition, you can cosy up together in front of a roaring fire in one of the many wonderful wildlife hideaways on the Atherton Tablelands. Some are even tree houses! Open a bottle of wine, take a big bath for deux or just listen to the noises of the rainforest. It’s just the two of you in a magical wilderness setting.

Gaze Up At the Stars

And don’t forget to step outside – the night sky awash with stars is a honeymooners’ delight. The further west you go the better the view but anywhere on the Atherton Tablelands benefits from so little light pollution so lie back on a blanket and enjoy the jet-black night sky twinkling above. Ahhhhhhh….
