Gold Coast: the perfect babymoon destination

Holly Connors

Taking a pre-baby break before your family grows in size has become a popular tradition over recent years, and the Gold Coast is the perfect destination to take your babymoon!

A babymoon is a great opportunity to take a break from the hustle and bustle, and enjoy some quality one-on-one time with your partner before the arrival of your child. For many, it will be a chance for relaxation and romance, before the chaos of life with a newborn begins.

You don’t have to travel abroad to destinations such as Fiji or Bali to enjoy beautiful beaches and soak up the sunshine, because it’s all right here on the Gold Coast. Enjoy scenic beaches, great food and plenty of attractions right on your doorstep.

Best of all, you can avoid the long haul flights or huge costs associated with an international holiday – not to mention the potential risks associated with overseas travel while pregnant. Instead, you can stay right here in Australia and enjoy the ultimate Gold Coast babymoon.

With a diverse array of accommodation on the Gold Coast, you can enjoy a luxurious resort with beach views, or something more budget conscious, while still being close to all the major Gold Coast attractions. And if rejuvenation is the focus, many resorts have their own spa services available, or are within close distance to one, so you can enjoy a relaxing pamper session as a couple, or a specialty pregnancy massage, such as that offered by A Touch of Aloha.

A sunset stroll along one of the Gold Coast’s many white beaches is a wonderful way to spend some quality time with your partner, while getting some gentle exercise and enjoying the tranquillity of the rolling waves, before heading to dinner at one of the vast array of Gold Coast restaurants.

If instead you’re seeking the mountain vibe and rainforest backdrop, Mount Tamborine is the perfect option. It’s situated in the Gold Coast Hinterland, and filled with European influences.

Consider a babymoon package from Witches Falls Cottages, complete with a double spa, delicious food, gifts for your future arrival and some pampering. You can simply enjoy relaxing together in a tranquil setting.

However there is plenty to do on Mt Tamborine, with many walks such as the Curtis Falls walk being a safe and short distance, with great views to enjoy, or a picnic at the Mt Tamborine botanical gardens.

Food is also a huge treat at Mt Tamborine, with a huge variety of international cuisine on offer, which is bound to cater to every type of craving. Or you can have some hands-on fun with your partner during a lesson at Tamborine Cooking School, where you can learn some new skills to take home. But if you’d rather just enjoy a meal cooked by someone else, Songbirds Restaurant is a popular choice, situated in a beautiful rainforest setting.

The Gold Coast has everything you could hope for as a babymooner and will give you the perfect opportunity to relax and connect before your bundle of joy arrives.
