Romantic Weekend Escape in Dayboro

If you’re looking for a romantic weekend escape don’t look anywhere else but Dayboro. Only 45 minutes’ drive from Brisbane, the picturesque country town is the best backdrop for a romantic, relaxing weekend.

To help you plan before you head out for your weekend escape, here are the top reasons you should choose Dayboro as your next romantic getaway in the Moreton Bay Region.

It’s all about the antiques

It wouldn’t be a relaxing romantic weekend without whiling the hours away while you stop into the local antique shops for a look at what’s on offer. The Dayboro has a huge range of antiques including retro, art deco and even a whole raft of manly antiques. From larger pieces of furniture to mantiques to vintage glassware including tea cups and saucers, this will make any couple reunite over fond memories of the past.

Wineries are a must

A romantic weekend getaway wouldn’t be special without visiting a special place.

Ocean View Estates is located on Mount Mee Road and has spectacular views. Spend a very romantic day here with a day at the vineyard that will be relaxing as you stroll through the vineyards, sampling wine and polishing off a sumptuous meal. You can finish it off with a cheese platter and some port or coffee to end the most spectacular day surrounded by the luscious greenery that is Dayboro.

And there’s even accommodation options if you would like to continue on and spend a romantic night in Dayboro.

Country food options

When you’re heading away for a romantic weekend, you have to include food! And Dayboro provides plenty of options. After a nice day checking out the sights of Dayboro, you cannot go past the bakery for a lunchtime pie or a sweet treat for later. There are also cafes, where you can enjoy a romantic lunch.

Why not grab some food from the bakery and head out on a romantic picnic in the lush landscape of Dayboro? The Gantry in the D'Aguilar National Park is two-wheel drive accessible! Or book a seat with Mountain Wine Tours and enjoy the culinary delights of the hinterland!

Fancy a picnic and a swim?

Another option in this country town is a picnic and swim by the side of the water crossing at Juffs Road. Being a quieter location with minimal traffic through the area, stretch out on a picnic blanket with a homemade lunch (or pick something up from in town!) and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the natural surrounds with a romantic swim on the side.

If a more active afternoon is to your liking, give Lees Road a go. With access to kayaking, swimming and fishing, it is a busier crossing with more traffic, but would suit a more adventurous pair.

Stayovers in Dayboro

And when the day is done, head back to a nice place to stay for a romantic night in. With five cottage and accommodation available, Dayboro is the perfect setting for a romantic weekend getaway. One top pick being Dayboro Cottages.

Dayboro is a beautiful country town that is steeped in history. Set up for a weekend getaway, there are many activities to suit the more relaxed or adventurous couple. With several food choices and time spent in nature, it’s the best way to relax and rejuvenate away from the busy areas of Brisbane and at just 45 minutes from Brisbane and over 60 minutes from the Sunshine Coast, the whole weekend won’t be taken up in travel time.
