Here are the Aussie favourites when it comes to the most romantic weekend of the year.

It seems when Valentine's Day weekend approaches there are some favourite destinations we escape to across the country. We think you'll be surprised as to what made the Booking.com list, from Western Australia to southern coastlines, read on for an idea or two.

Coming in with the most destinations was New South Wales. Trending locations included Bendigo, Bathurst, Moama, Port Macquarie, Nelson Bay, Pokolbin and Wollongong.

This data is based on a week to week increase in bookings from the weekend prior between 2018 and 2019.

Hotspots like Wollongong, Port Macquarie, Pokolbin (otherwise known as the Hunter Valley) and Nelson Bay have obvious appeal. But if you're after something a little different then Bendigo is hosting Sunset Sessions and Jazz night on Friday 14 February.

Your options continue with a paddle-boat ride down the Murray River in Moama or taking a stroll through the old-town of Bathurst.

The destinations don't stop there with Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide all making the cut with how many people were heading out on Valentine's Day weekend.

Skyscanner has also brought out its top destinations for February which has Noosa Heads, Byron Bay, Wollongong, Port Douglas, The Entrance, Lorne, Broome and Cradle Mountain moving up in the ranks.

Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Cairns sit at the top of the list alongside Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide as well. To book your flights for a last minute getaway head over to Skyscanner now.

Your itinerary won't be hard to fill, head out to the Barossa Valley for the weekend and taste the finest wine South Australia has to offer. Visit the koala sanctuary in Brisbane or get some sun at Scarborough Beach in Perth.

Want to surprise your special someone this weekend? Head over to Booking.com to lock in any last minute plans.
