No one left Australia indifferent to its natural beauties! Whereas you can find loads of affordable little getaways, sometimes you just have to allow yourself to splash out on life’s little luxuries. What better occasion than your honeymoon!
So if you’re looking for something romantic and luxurious, forget about your bank account and immerse yourselves in the following honeymoon destinations in Australia.
Hayman Island, Queensland
Luxury resorts at the Hayman Island in Queensland will get you flying around the Great Barrier Reef in a private helicopter, offer you a spa on-site, incredible restaurants and bars, and rooms that are so beautiful and comfy that you might never want to leave, especially when you see the amazing ocean views from your balcony.
Port Douglas, Queensland
If you’re having trouble deciding between Asia and Australia for the post-wedding celebration, then Thala Beach Nature Resort could be the right choice. It has the vibe of a secluded Thai rainforest and beach, but it’s right there in Australia’s Queensland! If you can force yourselves out of bed, you can join a 4WD tour of the world heritage rainforest, snorkel and see the Great Barrier Reef up close, or you might opt for leisurely star gazing or relaxing at the spa.
Montague Island Adventures
Just off the South Coast of NSW, near Narooma, the natural beauties of Montague Island await you. Montague Island Nature Reserve and surrounding crystal clear sea waters give you a unique opportunity to experience a spectacular wildlife wonderland, a home to hundreds of seals and bird species.
Taking the stunning Montague Island tours will offer you a chance to explore the incredible heritage of the island, its breathtaking views and wildlife that will keep you coming back for more. Every season offers something different – in late winter you’ll get to see hundreds of seals lazing on the rocks and even get the chance to go diving with them. In summer, 19 different bird species come to nest on the island, and in spring, you can watch the whales relaxing on the coast on their annual migration north.
Kangaroo Island, South Australia
Kangaroo Island’s luxury lodges are an absolute must for any foodies, and nature and eco-luxury aficionados. Your stay there will have you waking up to the sound of the waves as you bask in your floor-to-ceiling glass suite with views of the untouched beauty of the island. A honeymoon there means eat, sleep, and repeat as you won’t be able to believe the realm of comfort you found yourself in!
Ayers Rock, Uluru
An outback adventure gets to a whole new level with this place. It’s a spectacular glamping spot with tents that are probably nicer than your entire home. During the day, bring your exploration spirit and tread the paths less travelled and at night, recharge over a lovely meal at the local Michelin Star restaurant.
Coles Bay and Cradle Mountain, Tasmania
If you’ve ever wondered where those spectacular clear blue waters from tourist posters were taken, the answer is Tasmania! More specifically, it’s Freycinet National Park in Tasmania. This is the place that will take your breath away with its thick forests hiding away a luxurious getaway right in the middle of mountains close to the sea and sandy beaches of Coles Bay, making it the ultimate honeymoon spot in Australia.
If you’re up for the honeymoon of your wildest dreams, head over to World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park just two and a half hours from Launceston. Get the true feel of the outdoors by roughing it in the wild with your feet dirty, a sleeping bag, some thermal clothes and all the good will you can muster up!
Nothing beats the feeling of freedom than escaping to your romantic honeymoon after your wedding bash to celebrate your marriage and cherish the wonderful memories you shared with your loved ones. Fortunately, Australia has a rich offer of amazing honeymoon destinations with jaw-dropping locations, rainforest retreats, luxury resorts, gorgeous islands and coastal escapes – enough to make you never want to leave!
