Or, go on a lunch date

Date nights are fun, but so are lunch dates.

With a few days away make the most of your time together and go on a lunch date. This leaves time to cosy up together by the fire when you get back to your room. Nothing says winter romance like a bottle of local Yarra Valley wine, and a platter of Yarra Valley Dairy cheese for two in the evening. That's all you'll need to finish off a perfect day after one of these lunches ...

Motivate each other

If something a bit more high-energy is more your style, there’s plenty on offer for that too. Spending time together and achieving a goal while motivating each other is where it's at. The key thing is motivating each other while you do it. 

Walk further than usual, try a bike ride or maybe play with fire at the Healesville Glassblowers

Take a romantic walk together

There’s nothing quite so simply romantic as taking a long walk together with stunning scenery as your backdrop.

Choose from any number of magnificent nature walks and explore together while taking in the sight and sounds of the Yarra Valley. A bit of fresh air in the lungs works wonders cleaning up the mind and the best part - keep the mobile phone turned off - nature sounds magnificent!

Wirrawilla Rainforest Walk 

Cumberland Walk, Yarra Ranges National Park 

Marysville State Forest Walk 

 

Turn off the phone - take in a play, some music or a movie 

After a busy day sampling Yarra Valley's finest wines, tasting the extraordinary produce the region has to offer, adventuring in beautiful surrounds and finding new places to enjoy together - settle in and tune out of the digital world. 

It’s easier than you think. Turn your phones onto silent and place them out of sight, put the iPad back in its bag and simply enjoy each others company. Cards, a board game, a leisurely chat ... 

Those messages will wait until the morning - the wine, however, may not (you could use this time to plan the next getaway!)
