Take a staycation in Melbourne with your partner this winter
A fourth lockdown is upon us Melburnians, but that doesn't mean we can't start planning an overnight or weekend stay with our beau. Although, we can't travel far this year, you can find your perfect staycation within our own beautiful city. With something for everyone, pick your perfect couple vacay in Melbourne today.
If you're looking for a truly luxurious and romantic overnight or weekend away with your partner in the heart of Melbourne, you can't go past the Grand Hyatt Melbourne. On Collins Street is a premium couple experience you will remember, with everything from the valet, check in, and dining (room service or in restaurant), all a fabulous time. For an even more romantic night, pick a spa suite with a view of our city. It will be sure to make you find your love for Melbourne (and your partner!)
It doesn't get more unique, than a sleepover at the zoo. If your usual favourite places to camp are a bit too out of reach this year, the Melbourne Zoo might be your new favourite adventure. Set up your camp and sit under the stars, with the sounds of all the amazing animals the zoo offers your soundtrack as you fall asleep. The Roar 'N' Snore Overnight Camp offers guests the chance to get up close and personal with some of the animal residents, dinner and breakfast included, and all your camping needs. (Just bring a sleeping bag and pillow!) For a staycation to remember, book in the Melbourne Zoo.
The newly built Hotel Chadstone is about to be your favourite date night stay, with all the amenities and adventures Chadstone offers couple right on your doorstep. Whether it's a fancy dinner, a movie, or even a date at Legoland, you can then rest your head at Hotel Chadstone when the night is over. Enjoy a dip in the pool or spend your night in the suite, this is a great date night staycation.
You don't have to travel far to get a little holiday this winter. Melbourne is full and bustling of so many wonderful unique spots for couples, why not try a few this year?
