When you're pregnant, it seems there's a never ending supply of do-gooders who are all-to-happy to tell you about everything you're about to forego. Breakfast in bed ... A full night's sleep ... A massage ... A moment to yourself ... The list goes on. Helpful it is not, but the truth ... Well, it's quite likely. But rather than dwell on the pain of what's ahead, why not embrace everything you have at this point and book an indulgent, once-in-a-lifetime babymoon? We have gathered up the ten best babymoon destinations across Australia for pure luxury. Because you deserve it.
NSW - The Byron at Byron
Byron Bay is without a doubt one of the most hyped destinations in Australia, and for good reason. It's packed with everything you could want for a holiday - the beach, the hinterland, fantastic food, great shopping, and so much more. And there really is nowhere else to stay other than The Byron. A little out of town, you'll feel like you're worlds away from the stress of everyday. Just don't miss a trip to their spa - the massages are to die for.
NSW - Lilianfels
If quiet mountains are more your style, you can't go past Lilianfels in the Blue Mountains. Exuding old world charm and overlooking the beautiful Three Sisters, this is a very special place where memories will be made forever. Sit by the fire in their lounge room, or dine in the award-winning Darley's restaurant and delight in this special time in your life.
NSW - The Park Hyatt
If you'd prefer to stay city-side, you must make a visit to The Park Hyatt. Sydney-siders will see their city like a tourist - surrounded by the harbour, and overlooking the Opera House. Staying at this luxury hotel is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and should be savoured for every special moment.
NSW - Pretty Beach House
This boutique, intimate guest house is pure luxury. Just 90 minutes from Sydney, you can indulge in moments by the infinity pool, hours at the spa, or just laze your day away in your incredible guest house. It will leave you feeling ready to take on the amazing journey ahead of you.
VIC - The Lakehouse at Daylesford
If you're ready for a country-style, lodge setting for your babymoon, The Lakehouse is your destination. Even their website makes you feel relaxed ... Mountains of fresh produce come through the kitchen doors, borne by proud suppliers. The rhythm continues on through the day and into the evening, with the soft murmur of guests and the clink of glasses. Final lights out offers a mere few hours respite before the bakers return and the rhythm resumes once again. Who is else keen to book right now!?
