If you thought Australian men aren’t very romantic, think again. They’re almost as likely as women to take the initiative in organising a romantic getaway, according to a survey of bookings at Montville Grove rainforest cottages in Queensland.
And it may be the internet bringing out their romantic side because men are more likely than women to book online, according to Montville Grove’s owner, Louise Boylen.
“I’d always thought that romance was a bit like housework, mainly organised by the women but I started to notice that many of our bookings were made by men so I checked back over the last two years of bookings and found that 47% were made by men.
“And when it comes to online bookings, men are responsible for 55% of them so maybe technology has unlocked their romantic streak ,” said Louise.
And romantic getaways aren’t just a Valentine’s Day event. The Montville Grove cottages – and most of the other Montville accommodation providers - are booked out almost every weekend with couples getting away to relax and reconnect.
Montville is located in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, just over an hour north of Brisbane. It’s a town blessed with spectacular views, surrounded by National Parks and excellent cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops.
Montville Grove has three studio-style cottages with lake and rainforest views, spas, decks, barbecues and kitchen facilities. Nestled in a rainforest setting just outside Montville, the cottages are peaceful and private but just a few minutes from local restaurants and cafes; the perfect blend for a romantic escape.
