Get loved-up in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

byUrban List -14 Aug 2017

Love is in the air, or at least it will be once you spend three glorious nights at a secluded resort in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. In between staring into your SO’s eyes, you’ll be wine tasting, indulging in treatments at one of the region’s best day spas and getting cosy in your rainforest cabin. 

Day One

Wind your way up and along the Blackall Range until you arrive at the tranquil and completely secluded Spicers Tamarind. This, my friends, is where the romance begins. Check-in, unpack and marvel at the serenity, and when you’re feeling peckish there’ll be a table for two waiting for you at on-site restaurant, The Tamarind.

Day Two

Wake up and smell the rainforest and meander hand-in-hand to The Tamarind for a slow breakfast. By now, you’ll probably realise you could easily spend the next three days without leaving this Spicers property, but we’re going to make you, because the wineries are calling! First stop, Flame Hill Vineyard for wine-tasting at the cellar door followed by lunch, followed by more tastings at Maleny Mountain Wines. Then we’re going to take it next-level, with a private sunset picnic at One Tree Hill in Maleny, organised by our friends at Sunshine Coast and Noosa Picnics. You won’t be needing dinner after the platter you’ve just eaten, so tonight will be all about your private hot tub.

Day Three

Sleep in and head into town for a late breakfast at Monica’s Café. You’re in no rush, so stroll around town, stopping by Pallet Life Markets and then into Rosetta’s Books for a new page-turner. Next, you’ll be slipping straight into 1.5 hours of pure indulgence with a visit to Spa Anise for his and her treatments. On cloud nine? Curl up with your book and a glass of wine, before getting dolled up for dinner at Wild Rocket @ Misty’s.

Day Four

Make the most of your last morning in the hinterland, and start early with a brekkie at Altitude On Montville. Check out of your accommodation and cruise along the Blackall Range until you arrive at Kondalilla Falls. Lace up and hike down to the falls and rock pools, for a refreshing dip and your final round of loved up selfies before you head home.
