FIVE OF THE BEST ROAD TRIPS FOR ROMANTIC HEARTS

The best way to experience the exceptional performance and handling capabilities of a Jaguar is to escape the city and head off on the open road. To celebrate Valentine’s Day we’ve put together a list of Australia’s top romantic drives to inspire your next road trip with that special someone.

GREAT OCEAN ROAD, VICTORIA  

The Great Ocean Road is understandably one of Australia’s most popular road trips, with the National Heritage-listed drive winding along 243km of stunning coastline and through pockets of pristine forest. Start in charming Torquay, a town famous for its surf breaks, and head west towards your journey’s end at Allansford. Must-see stops along the way include the famous 12 Apostles emerging from the ocean, Great Otway National Park, the Great Ocean Walk, and Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve.

GRAND PACIFIC DRIVE, NSW

While not as famous (or long) as the Great Ocean Road, Grand Pacific Drive between Sydney and Wollongong doesn’t disappoint in the romance stakes, with sweeping ocean views and breathtaking vistas. The 665m long Sea Cliff Bridge snakes around the dramatic cliffs, with a place to stop and stretch your legs and take in the view. Speaking of views, make sure you put Stanwell Tops on your itinerary, which is the perfect spot to take a photo of the ocean, the escarpment and the Sea Cliff Bridge all laid out before you from a dizzying height.

EPICUREAN WAY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Combine fine wine, decadent food and stunning scenery and you have all the elements you need for a romantic road trip to remember. Head off from Adelaide and indulge your senses with a meandering four-day journey through the gorgeous wine country of McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley and Clare Valley.

SCOTSDALE TOURIST DRIVE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

If you were putting together the perfect ingredients for a romantic getaway, they might include everything from lush forests and ocean pools, through to wineries and art galleries. Just five hours south of Perth, the 34km drive from Denmark to McLeod Road delivers all this and more. Make time for the Harewood Forest Walk or Valley of the Giants Treetop Walk, sink your toes into pristine white sand and keep the romance alive with an invigorating dip in spectacular ocean pools.

TAMBOURINE MOUNTAIN, QUEENSLAND

When you think of the Gold Coast, it’s probably beaches that first come to mind. But there’s romance to be found in the hills. Simply drive west towards the hinterland and wind your way up Tamborine Mountain. Start with a walk through beautiful Tamborine Mountain National Park, and then drop into one of the incredible breweries or wineries for a well-earned refreshment. At Cedar Creek Estate Vineyard and Winery you’ll find the Glow Worm Caves, a man-made structure with an introduced colony of glow worms, as unique as it is fascinating.
