Passion in the Palms – a romantic getaway guide.

“In life it’s not where you go, its who you travel with”.

Whether it’s a spontaneous weekend escape or a planned mid-week rendezvous, taking time away with your loved one is the perfect remedy for a busy schedule. Forget waiting for special occasions; love is in the air year-round at the Palms, and we have the best tips to make your getaway unforgettable.

“Netflix & Chill”

Every romantic escapade needs the perfect base, a place where you can spend all day in bed watching rom-coms or venture out for some fun. Tiona’s Treehouse Glamping Tents offer the ideal retreat – a luxurious king-size bed, an in-house sound system, and a bathroom with treetop views, all within a stone’s throw from the lake, beach, and national park walking tracks.

“My Love for You is Pizza Shaped”

They say the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, and a romantic weekend isn’t complete without tasty tidbits. Order a delightful pizza from Hueys at Blueys – the Hueys Special is our top pick. Don’t forget to add a Nutella pizza and a bottle of wine. If pizza isn’t your thing, Sea & Salt offers a tempting grazing box for a stylish breakfast in bed or a dinner with a view at one of the many local picnic spots.

“On Our Way to Everywhere”

If you’re in the mood for adventure beyond the Palms, Barrington Coast has an array of amazing destinations. Visit the longest single-drop waterfall in the southern hemisphere at Ellenborough Falls or explore the cafes, artists, and artisan producers in the picturesque country villages of Gloucester, Nabiac, or Wingham.

“Pugs and Kisses”

Can’t bear to leave your furry friend behind? Tiona is a pet-friendly haven for couples who want their weekend getaway to include their beloved pet. Enjoy walks on pet-friendly beaches and create lasting memories with your four-legged companion.

“The Only Fish in the Sea for Me”

Cliché or not, long walks on the beach are a must for a romantic weekend. Hand in hand, sand between your toes, and the smell of salty sea air—it’s calming, relaxing, and a great way to connect. Explore the beautiful beaches of the Pacific Palms, from the expansive Seven Mile Beach to the intimate Elizabeth Beach or take a coastal walk to Shelly Beach for an all-over tan.

“The World is Your Oyster”

No romantic getaway is complete without oysters, known as the “food of love.” Wallis Lake, the largest producer of Sydney Rock Oysters in Australia, offers these delectable delicacies. Grab a dozen from Red Spot or savor different variations at Forster restaurants for a special date night treat.

“You Are My Greatest Adventure”

If your idea of a weekend escape involves adrenaline-pumping activities, explore the adventures that Forster and the Palms have to offer. From inspirational hikes in Booti Booti National Park to paddleboarding on Wallis Lake, immerse yourselves in the natural playgrounds of the Barrington Coast.

“I Love You to the Sunset and Back”

Tiona is renowned for its sunset views over the water—grab your favorite beverages, a blanket, and snuggle up together to watch the sunset. Stay out after the sun bids adieu; Tiona’s lack of city lights makes it one of the best spots for nighttime stargazing.

“Put a Ring on It”

Amidst all this romance, don’t be surprised if a proposal is on the horizon! The Pacific Palms is an ideal location for a destination wedding. Picture a ceremony in the serene Green Cathedral and a reception to remember at the full-service Palms Pavilion Wedding & Events center. Celebrate with loved ones on the Pavilion lawn, watching the sunset over Wallis Lake, and continue the festivities all weekend with onsite accommodation at Tiona Resort.
