Gone with the wind
There’s nothing quite like putting the wind in your better half’s sails and taking a romantic drift out to sea.

Take the Lady Enid in the Whitsundays as an example. This classic sailing yacht offers adults-only tours to the pristine waters around Whitehaven Beach and deserted Langford Island.

Sign up for 50 per cent off all Sailing Tours (up to $200) or purchase two tickets for the Sundowner Sunset Cruise; normally priced at $95 per person, and you’ll get one free. 

Further south off the coast of Hervey Bay, soak up the Great Sandy Straits, sip on champagne and dine on a dusky hue of pinks and blues (plus a platter of delicious finger food) with Blue Dolphin’s 50 per cent off Sunset Sail Tour, normally priced at $70 per person, but now $70 for two people with a Great Queensland Getaway code.

Say ‘aye’ to the Magnetic Island 50 per cent off Lunchtime Sailing Cruise and save $199 per couple. Once on board this 58-foot majestic yacht, you’ll anchor at one of Maggie’s secret bays before tucking into a platter of local seafood, served with wines, beer and soft drinks.

Daredevil deeds
Sometimes love just needs grit, pluck and a daredevil experience. Up in Cairns, Divers Den’s Two Certified Great Barrier Reef Dives at 50 per cent off puts glorious underwater air into the tanks of any twosome at half the price, while Riverlife Adventure Centre in Brisbane shakes up sunsets with their Save $100 on a Twilight Kayak Tour for Two.

While in Queensland’s capital city, check out the 50 per cent off Brisbane by Bicycle Morning Tour and two people can pedal for 3.5 hours around the River City for just $52.50.

Cycling not your thing? Then tackle the art of hanging ten with Merrick’s Noosa Learn to Surf two-for-one Group Surf Lesson on Main Beach, the prettiest – and safest – beach in the region.

Voyage of a Reef Discovery
Hit a holiday high and take up Calypso Reef Cruise’s 50 per cent off Low Isles Half Day Tour offer.

This tour allows two people to sneak off to a postcard perfect place – just off the coast of Port Douglas – and snorkel one of the world’s prettiest lagoons for $199.

For more reef adventures, voyage south of Cairns and pull up anchor at the deserted Normanby Island with Frankland Island Reef Cruises and Bring a Friend for Free. This hidden island offers vibrant fringing reefs and an underwater neighbourhood brimming with colourful corals and giant clams.

Keen to get to the Outer Reef for less? The Great Queensland Getaway’s Sunlover’s two-for-one Outer Reef Tour puts the world’s largest reef in the span of your goggles for an unheard of $199 for two adults.

Dine with Distinction
Bite into romance and grab a 50 per cent off Cairns Aquarium by Twilight Tour and three-course dinner to witness the transition of life as mountain ranges, steamy rainforests and shallow reef lagoons stir with activity.

Take a guided tour through ten tropical eco systems then spend your evening at Dundee’s Restaurant pairing a scrumptious three-course feast against a giant underwater backdrop. Normally $250, now only $125 with code.

Still in Cairns, merge day into night on a Cairns City Sights and Dinner Cruise and snaffle 50 per cent off the usual $186.00 adult fare.

Or head to the Gold Coast and journey into Australia’s heartland and Get Two for the Price of One plus Adults at Kids’ Prices at the Australian Outback Spectacular. That equates to an enthralling live performance and a three-course meal for two adults for just $79.00 – a deep drop on the normal $198 price for two.

Romancing the rainforest
Show your affection for the world’s oldest rainforest with these implausibly perfect tours. Take up Jungle Tours’ Go Wild Tour for two adults, normally priced at $370 and now only $185 with the Great Queensland Getaway promo code.

Or, find you really can smile at a crocodile on Bruce Belcher’s Daintree River Cruises 50 per cent off deal. The one-hour private cruise for two people costs $75 with a promo code and includes the chance to spot a massive saltwater crocodile.

There you have it. Just a sample of some of the Great Queensland Getaway deals best suited for twosomes.
