Give us a home among the gumtrees...

If you're looking to connect with nature during your next romantic getaway, then you've got to try and book into the Blue Mountains' Love Cabins (also known as the Wollemi Wilderness Cabins). Come here to marvel at some classic Australian bush landscapes from the comfort of your own timber and glass-lined cabin.
All of the self-sustained accomodations are located within Wollemi National Park, which is the largest wilderness area in NSW. Forming part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Wollemi is made up of a consort of canyons, cliffs and undisturbed forest. And it's only an hour drive from Sydney.
The private treetop cabin comes with the lot. You have a kitchenette, queen-size bed, fireplace and floor to ceiling windows looking out over the Blue Mountains. They even have an old school in-floor spa bath. It sits in the corner of the treehouse and has retractable doors all around it so you can decide to either let nature in, or just look out at the views from the warmth of your room. We could spend the whole day getting pruney in here.
And while each of the cabins are set up with their own little kitchen, you can get food delivered too. That's where Caroline comes in. Caroline is a local who owns her own small catering company called Come by Chance. All you need to do is ask the accommodation's hosts for some brekkie or dinner — and they'll get Caroline on the case. She'll cook and deliver great country-style meals to your room — expect a classic chicken parma, tea and scones, or a full English breakfast spread.
But you don't have to spend your whole visit up in the treehouse. There are stacks of things to do around here. The hosts will direct you to the nearby trails where you can also go mountain biking or they'll send you to the nearby river for some canoeing.
Pampering is also big here — and it's done in true Aussie fashion. They have a few of their own hot mud baths available on site. Sit in an old tub, surrounded by bushland, and let the in-house therapist guide you through a relaxing, muddy ritual. It's great for your skin, plus its loads of fun. You're already in a treehouse, why not embrace your inner child even more with this experience?
