Day 1. Wednesday – Brisbane to Kingscliff (L,D)
Departing on our opulent ‘Diamond Class’ coach, from Brisbane CBD, we make our way to the hinterland paradise of Mount Tamborine. Today our first stop is at Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk. This exciting eco-adventure will offer us a unique and thrilling way to explore the beautiful rainforest canopies beside the crystal clear rock pools of Cedar Creek. With a comprehensive array of Australian rainforest flora and fauna, the walk is a combination of floor trails and 300 metres of high-tech steel bridges through the highest points of the upper canopy. After our treetop walk, we make our way to lunch before enjoying time at Gallery Walk. This tourist mecca boasts unusual and vibrantly coloured shops, art galleries with original artworks, paintings and sculptures, glass works, pottery, ceramics and antiques and is nestled amongst a selection of coffee shops. We descend the mountain and make our way to the coast, arriving in Kingscliff. The lagoon style pools are the perfect way to cool off before dinner. 2 Night Stay: Peppers Salt Resort & Spa, Kingscliff
Day 2. Thursday – Gold Coast (B,L,D)
An early morning as we start Valentine’s Day with a romantic hot air balloon ride. A magnificent birds-eye view of the stunning Gold Coast and hinterland, as the sun rises. This special morning sets the tone for our day, as you spend some quiet reflection time with your special someone, delighting in the smooth flight and enjoying a champagne breakfast once you touch down. After a delicious breakfast, we make our way to the banks of the Tweed River and board the Spirit of Wollumbin for a river cruise through the Tweed Valley. Whilst exploring the scenic waterways and lush river-bank rainforest areas, enjoy a five course seafood degustation lunch, a tasting of a range of local seafood and produce that is garnished with Australian native foods. This afternoon, take time to rest or swim in the pool before preparing for our special intimate dining experience this evening. Don your best Valentine’s Day outfit and meet for pre-dinner drinks with the group, before we take our seats at our individual tables set just for two, and enjoy dinner by candlelight. **Please note: Hot air balloon ride subject to weather conditions on the day
