Get­away with the girls

Most women take time out with their part­ners to re­lax to­gether be­fore baby is due. But, a grow­ing num­ber of women are cel­e­brat­ing their preg­nan­cies with their girl­friends, in­stead. What­ever your rea­son, we’ve rounded up the best all-girls get­away spots across the coun­try so you can en­joy some much needed R&R with your tribe be­fore your baby is born. BELLS AT KILLCARE, NSW Just a short drive from Syd­ney on the Cen­tral Coast, Bells at Killcare of­fers three two-bed­room cot­tages that are per­fect for a girls’ get­away. The re­sort doesn’t cater for chil­dren, so if you’re look­ing for a quiet place to re­lax, then this is your spot. Set among man­i­cured gar­dens, each cot­tage is dec­o­rated with a Hamp­tons feel com­plete with Ralph Lau­ren fur­nish­ings. The cot­tages ac­com­mo­date up to 12 peo­ple and in­clude three fire­places (one in each bed­room and one in the large liv­ing room), a fully equipped kitchen and an out­door deck.

Of course, no baby­moon is com­plete with­out a visit to the day spa and the

Bells Day Spa doesn’t dis­ap­point. Draw­ing on the bush­land sur­round­ings, the spa uses LI’TYA prod­ucts made from na­tive in­gre­di­ents and uses In­dige­nous Aus­tralian heal­ing tech­niques, such as the sig­na­ture Marma Kodo preg­nancy mas­sage.

The other draw­card of Bells is the award-win­ning Man­fredi at Bells restau­rant, de­vel­oped by celebrity chef Ste­fano Man­fredi, set within the main manor house. The restau­rant’s menu changes sea­son­ally and uses lo­cal pro­duce, in­clud­ing herbs and veg­eta­bles picked from Bells own veg­etable gar­den. There’s also an ex­ten­sive mock­tail list so you don’t feel like you’re miss­ing out. BOOK IT! Two-bed­room cot­tages start from $990 per night, which in­cludes daily break­fast and Wi-Fi.
