5 ultimate getaways to relax and unwind

Can you remember the last time you didn’t have a care in the world? The stress of everyday life can catch up with us and take a toll on our mental and physical health. That’s why it’s important to take time off to relax and unwind.

Australia boasts serene coastlines and lush greenery. Take advantage of your home country by immersing yourself in nature’s simplicity. Think of your time away as a means of therapy whether you’re planning to rekindle the romance with your partner or take a break from a busy work schedule.

Here are My Hayfever’s top picks for the ultimate getaway that will have you relaxed in no time. Don’t worry – we have some allergy-friendly options in here too:

  1. Sal Salis, Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia (allergy friendly)

Sal Salis takes luxury camping to new heights with a beach location overlooking the coral reef. This will be one of the priciest retreats you’ve ever heard of but the experience will be unlike anything else. If you suffer from allergies or hayfever, the fresh ocean air will be a treat from the pollution and pollen in the city.

  1. Silky Oaks Lodge, Daintree Rainforest, Queensland

Have you dreamt of living in a treehouse surrounded by the lush greenery of a rainforest? If so, this is the destination for you. Sitting on the banks of the Mossman Gorge River, this lodge will show you what true relaxation is all about. Not only is this lodge eco-friendly but it also has healing water spas.

  1. Blue Mountains Enchanted Love Cave, New South Wales

The Blue Mountains Enchanted Love Cave is a cosy retreat for couples looking for some quality one- on-one time. The interesting cave-like interior is filled with warm colours and interesting decorations while being surrounded by nature makes it the perfect setting for snuggling. It’s no wonder they call it the ‘love cave’!

  1. Mornington Peninsula Hot Springs, Victoria (allergy friendly)

Victoria is known as a hayfever hotspot but the Mornington Peninsula hot springs may even help clear those sinuses! This is because steam can temporarily clear your nasal passage. If you yearn for fresh air, luxury massages and relaxing hot springs you’ll be visiting again in no time.

  1. Lord Howe Island, Australia

Lord Howe Island has been featured in movies like The Shallows starring Blake Lively. The unusual crescent-shaped island has an untouched look and feel while the waters gleam with beautiful hues of green and blue. This may be the ideal destination for a prolonged getaway, and would be the perfect time to lose your phone and explore nature’s wonders. This island promises clean air with little pollution, although there could be other allergy triggers like pollen.

If you suffer from hayfever or allergies make sure you’re prepared on your next getaway. The best way to manage hayfever is by going to the doctor who can recommend a suitable treatment.
