And because the Travel Associates team takes great pride in curating the best of the best, we've hand-picked these incredible weekend escapes that you can book and enjoy right now. For a little taste of what's on offer, explore some of our favourites below.

The Frames, South Australia

The Frames boast three incredible luxury retreats overlooking the Murray River. Each are extremely private and perfect for couples craving a bit of romance away from it all. Depending on your retreat, you'll enjoy your own private hydrotherapy spa, outdoor book, infra-red sauna and a bathtub for two all for you to use privately. There are so many reasons to go out and explore, but some equally as convincing ones to stay put, like your Travel Associates advisor organising your own private chef to cook you a delicious three-course meal in the privacy of your own retreat. But if you do happen to venture out, you will love a romantic private gondola ride down the Murray River with sparkling wine and a cheese platter.
