The romance begins just 45 minutes’ drive from Brisbane’s CBD when you step on board the ferry to magical Macleay Island. Your stress will melt away and a sense of anticipation will build as you cross the sparkling Moreton Bay. Your thoughts will turn to secluded hideaway that awaits – the aptly named sweet Licorice at Curious Cottages.
Choose the waterfront Licorice Cottage, whose stunning bay and Stradbroke Island views through soaring panels of glass will capture your breath. You’ll be equally enticed by the romance of the master bedroom with its double spa and water vistas. Other favourite spots will be the loft (perfect for stargazing) or on the couch by the wood-burning fire.
Your day at Licorice might start with a late breakfast and steaming cuppa taken at the outdoor setting on the treetop deck. Between lofty boughs and branches you’ll be able to see the calm turquoise waters beyond. So pleasant is a morning out here that you may well be tempted to take all meals al fresco for the duration of your stay. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare the perfect feast.
Have a beloved pet you can’t bear to leave behind? Well-behaved pooches are welcome to join you on your romantic island getaway.
