1. Take it easy

Maui motorhomes are warm and comfortable, well designed, and offer all the comforts of home with the bonus of ever-changing views. Unpack once, kick back, and slip into cruise mode, because there’s nothing like relaxation to encourage holiday fun.

2. Get back to nature

There’s a good reason those romantic poets of old wrote about weeping willows, fields of flowers, and rivers wending gently through the valley. Picture you and your beau in such scenes – natural, beautiful, and ideally lit by the golden glow of sunrise or sunset – and tell us that doesn’t inspire certain desires.

3. Eat al fresco

Forget the wicker basket, the thermos flask and the checked blanket. A campervan picnic is much easier than that. Step 1: park somewhere picturesque. Step 2: put the kettle on. Step 3: raid the fridge. Step 4: step outside. And the romantic picnic ideas don’t end there – how about a siesta in the sunshine?

4. Propose a toast

Raise a glass to your lover with new world prosecco or a full-bodied red, selected from a cellar door. While you’re on the wine trail, enjoy a tasting or two and indulge in a winery lunch. 

5. Follow the art trail

Surprise your partner with a special gift or stock up on souvenirs along art trails, or in village boutiques and galleries. Gemstones, sheepskin boots, and natural skincare products are just a few of Australia’s specialities.

6. Find a festival

Feast on local fare or jazz up an evening – just two romantic ideas springing up from Australia’s packed annual events calendar. To see what’s on where you’re going, check state tourism websites or EventFinda. 

7. Make the blood run hot

A therapeutic soak is sure to get things cooking. Fortunately, there are plenty of hot pools in Australia, ranging from the extensive Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs complex near Melbourne, to the all-natural Mataranka Thermal Pools in the Northern Territory’s Elsey National Park.

Many caravan parks also keep the heat on with a spa pool, and sometimes a sauna.

8. Book a table for two

You’ll discover plenty of great dining on your maui motorhome trip, whether you’re looking for simple fare in a contemporary café or country pub, or a slap-up dinner served by a celebrated chef. The savings you make by self-catering in your campervan kitchen should free up some funds for a romantic dinner or two.

9. Go starry-eyed

After sundown, stay outside, rug up and snuggle up, and gaze at the heavens. Centaurus and the Southern Cross are just two signature constellations amidst Australia’s clear night skies. Where permitted, light a campfire or gather driftwood for a beach bonfire. That’s sure to put a glow in the cheeks.

10. Sing in the rain

Keep your fingers crossed for one rainy night, so you can savour the mesmerising pitter-patter on the roof while you lie snuggled up inside. (And be thankful for your onboard bathroom, so you don’t have to make a midnight dash through the drops!)
