So, you’re reading this from your waterfront mansion, dripping in diamonds and draped in silks and furs (faux, obviously—you’re not a monster). One thing is bugging you though… All of those gigantic piles of cash, gold and precious gems are just taking up too much space! You desperately need to clear some room to have your celebrity friends over for that casual 10-course dinner party.

Never fear, we can help you out with this super relatable problem: why not whisk your beloved away on an extravagant, romantic getaway in Southern Tasmania? Throw that pesky cash money towards a luxury hire car, yacht charter, private plane and/or helicopter, fancy wining and dining, and unique luxury accommodation. Problem solved.

We’ve also put together some budget-friendly romance ideas for hustlers who are still waiting to try their luck on Shark Tank and make their fortune.

Travel in style

First things first: we need to get you a sweet set of wheels. Or wings. Or rotors. Or sails.

Hire a luxury car

Overdrive Car Hire has some seriously luxurious cars available for hire. Think Jaguar, Audi, BMW, Minis, Porsche, Alfa Romeos, and Mustangs. Most places in Southern Tasmania are an easy 1–3-hour drive from Hobart, so cruise around the sights in style and turn some jealous heads (midlife crisis? Nah mate, just a bit of fun). Some of Tasmania’s amazing road trips include the scenic Derwent Valley and Western Wilds (epic scenery), the Heritage Highway (historic charm), and all the way south to the paradise at the end of the road. Drive safe and please watch out for wildlife, particularly at night.

Book a private flight

Slick back your hair and activate your most reflective aviators. Take to the air and be whisked off to a winery for lunch, hover above the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, or fly to a remote corner of the wild Southwest National Park.


Small plane:

Charter a boat

Pull on your freshly pressed white linen and board your private boat. Take the wheel for a while or kick back with the wind in your hair and sip Tasmanian bubbles.

  • Hobart Yachts offer multi-day sailing charters from Hobart into Port Davey, in the wild Southwest National Park, with a stopover at Recherche Bay.
  • Alternatively, fly into Melaleuca and join Tasmanian Boat Charters on an all-inclusive, guided expedition onboard the Odalisque, a boutique floating hotel.
  • SailTas offer relaxing sailing holidays onboard their spacious yacht, complete with an experienced skipper and gourmet Tasmanian produce.
  • The Wineglass Bay Sail Walk is a multi-day adventure exploring the spectacular beaches, peninsulas and island trails along Tasmania’s east coast. Between walks, relax on the Lady Eugenie, a 23-metre (75-ft) luxury classic ketch, with fancy three-course dinners.

Wine & Dine

They say the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach.
