Valentine’s Day Road Trips from Brisbane on a Budget

#1. Top Picnic Spots

Pack a picnic or fire up the BBQ at one of the picture-perfect waterfront or hinterland parks for a truly romantic meal or two. Picnicking hotspots include:

#2. Hinterland Adventure

Embark on a D’Aguilar hinterland nature escape for hiking, camping, and rock pool swimming fun. Make a weekend of it and camp at nearby camping areas.

#3. Take in a Sunset

Spend a late afternoon watching the spectacular sunset behind the mountains from Jolly’s lookout or take a sunset cruise voyage through Pumicestone Passage.

#4. Scenic Drive

Discover the magic of the hinterland as you take a scenic rural drive exploring niche art and craft stores, roadside markets, galleries, and culinary delights while enjoying postcard-perfect views at every corner.

#5. A day at the Beach

Roll out your towel, slip on a hat and soak up the sunshine at one of the region’s many picturesque beaches. For the adventurous couple, take your 4WD out onto Ocean Beach, one of Bribie Island’s beautiful beaches.

#6. Say it with Flowers

Surprise your beloved with a flower bouquet courtesy of Redcliffe’s The Flower Laundry, Redcliffe City Florist, or North Lake’s Bella Flor Flower Specialists

For Adventurous and Sporty Couples

If your beloved has an adventurous spirit, do something different this Valentine’s Day and gift them a high flying scenic tour thanks to Oceanview Helicopters.

Heights not your partner’s thing?

Why not contact Surf Connect to grab a SUP board, kayak, or pedal boat for two and soak up the sun together out on the water, or go boating and water sporting courtesy of Boating Planet.

How about making the day a social celebration?

Bring some of your coupled-up friends along for an on-water BBQ with your special someone aboard a Bribie Island Boat Charter BBQ boat.

Is your Valentine a keen golfer?

If so, treat them to a round of golf at Fairways Golf & Beach Retreat followed by a well-deserved lunch, tapas, or dinner overlooking the course and the bay.

How about bushwhacking bonding?

For camping road trips from Brisbane, head to Neurem Creek, or Archer Campgrounds and enjoy 4WDing fun along dirt tracks to Falls Lookout, or stop for a refreshing dip in Rocky Hole. If you and your partner really want to enjoy some alone time together, you can trek to some of our region’s most isolated camping hotspots located on the Pumicestone Passage side of Bribie Island at Mission Point, or Limes Pocket (only accessible by boat), or on the sands of Ocean Beach (4WD required).

3 Valentine’s Day Options for the Single Ladies

We’ve also put together a few ideas for single ladies keen to get out and about with their besties during Valentine’s Week.

#1. Animal Lovers

For the animal lovers, bring your bestie along for a day of cuddling baby farm animals at White Ridge Farm

#2. It's Wine O'Clock

Experience the tastes of Moreton Bay Region’s hinterland with Mountain Wine Tours. Visit local wineries and feast on culinary delights.

#3. Girls Only Weekend Getaway

Make a whole weekend of it with a girls getaway in Redcliffe, stay at La Vida on Anzac, dine at Golden Ox, party at Sunny's Margate Beach Rooftop Bar, whale watch, swim at the beach and shop at the Redcliffe markets.
