If you’re looking for some fresh new romantic date ideas to woo your beloved, plan a romantic getaway now to the Tweed. It’s where love can be found from sunrise to sunset and beachside to countryside. Curate a date day or night that’s perfect for two, from adventures in nature to creative play and soothing spa time. Dine out, sleep in and dive in to some sweet time together in the Tweed. 


From the first light of morning to a stunning sunset, snuggle together somewhere sublime and scenic as the day wakes or softens into night.  

If early morning is your thing, grab a thermos, a blanket and each other and head to Fingal Head Beach to witness warm rays peeking over the horizon and kissing the day. Once you’ve welcomed the day, take a refreshing splash in the sea (swimming between the flags!) and a stroll around the picturesque headland, also home to Fingal Lighthouse 

Exhale sidebyside aboard a Tweed Eco Cruise sunset tour, sailing into golden hour along the stunning Tweed River. As the last soft light of day peeks from behind Wollumbin Mt Warning in the distance, you’ll enjoy tasty snacks, live music and local sips from craft beer to cocktails mixed from Tweed-made spirits.

Hire a bike and immerse yourself in nature exploring the scenic bike paths throughout The Tweed. Up the ante on this date idea with a curated trail date experience by Pedals and Picnics, with tasty grazing boxes and comfy settings. Choose from a DIY set-up or opt for a fully created dream picnic, just ride up, park up and settle in.

Explore the coastal pathways from Fingal Head to Pottsville for lush, shaded pathways and pops of ocean blue views. Stop at Cabarita Beach and cool off in the waves or go for a short climb (via stairs) up to Norries Headland for 360 degree ocean and hinterland views. This is the perfect spot to set up your DIY picnic.

Experience one of Australia’s newest must-do adventures together along the Tweed section of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail. A fun and fascinating trail that’s 24km end to end and packed with highlights, from crossing heritage bridges and navigating old rail tunnels to stopping along the ride to view art, visit a farmstay, taste local cheeses, shop in village stores and plenty more!

Discover shared inner peace while floating on a SUP in the calm waters of Cudgen Creek, gently nudging mangroves, tuning in to bird song and drifting on a soft breeze, all while being lulled by the meditative tones of your Watersports Guru guide. Mindfulness in the Mangroves is a soothing date idea that will have you both breathing deeper and feeling more connected to nature, self and each other.

Take your cocktail making game to the next level with a private Mix & Sip class at The Pot & Pint in Kingscliff. Step into the intimate European inspired bar, just a skip from the beach, and learn how to craft perfect cocktails that not only look and taste divine but will also be a surefire date idea for your next date night back home too. Accompanied by a sumptuous charcuterie board and optional transfer (additional cost) back to your lodgings in George, an original London taxi cab! 


Always a treat for two is a couples pamper treatment, soothing mind, body and soul and creating a relaxed start to your romantic getaway. Book ahead for a holistic treatment at The Spa at Salt, where mindfully created spa features are based around the elements of Air, Water, Fire, Light and Earth. From a calming lounge and treatment rooms to infrared sauna, hydrotherapy spa and salt meditation room. Tip: the Couples Connection package is for you. 


Set on sprawling green lawn, overlooking the Tweed River and taking in views of Wollumbin Mt Warning, Husk Farm Distillery in Tumbulgum, already embodies romance – then you add Ink Gin and Husk Rum, along with a shelf of other distilled delights, an immersive BTS distillery tour and your very own picnic rug for lunch and you have all the makings of an unforgettable date day!
