Top honeymoon destinations in Australia

 

The past two years have brought along with them a lot of what ifs and masses of uncertainty, in particular around our ability to travel. And although the world is slowly starting to reopen, the fact that Australia has some of the most breathtaking destinations to visit is certainly not lost upon us. So, what better way to continue on those glorious and elated post weddings highs than by exploring what’s in our own backyard.

Let us share with you our top honeymoon destinations in Australia.

 

Strahan, Tasmania.

Once you’re done exploring the natural beauty, rugged terrain and succumbing to the scenery of what Tasmania has to offer. It’s time to settle in with a glass of world class pinot noir or sparkling from the west side region at the picturesque seaside town of Strahan. Or more poignantly at the waterfront cottage of Captain’s Rest.

 

Yallingup, Margaret River, WA

Ahh the serenity. There are so many tranquil locations set amongst the Margaret River region however our pick of the bunch is in the heart of Yallingup at Injidup Spa Retreat. Adult only villas, private plunge pools and stunning ocean views…need we say more? Oh, and don’t forget the plethora of wineries, breweries, providores and outdoor activities just a stone’s throw away.

 

Byron Bay, NSW

A mecca for many and quite the destination when it comes to sun, surf and style. Walk to the lighthouse – the most eastern point in Australia, hob nob with the locals at the pub, meander through markets and treat yourself to a shopping spree amongst the industrial estate, try the delectable cuisine at The Farm whilst exploring the surrounds and then rest your head at a cult favourite, Rae’s.

 

Lizard Island, QLD

Luxury spelt L I Z A R D….Lizard Island is a secluded spot, hidden away in the most northern part of the Great Barrier Reef, which is literally at your doorstep as you set foot on the island. Be wined and dined by the best, explore private beaches, entertain yourselves with the myriad of activities to do around the island and as Frankie says; “Relax”.

 

Port Douglas, Queensland.

Warm weather all year round and natural surrounds that are sure to delight, Port Douglas is the ultimate getaway for those looking to honeymoon. The gateway to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest and home to stunning beaches, whether you’re keen to get out and explore or hole yourselves up in a luxury hotel, Port Douglas offers something for everyone.

 

Broome, WA

The gateway to The Kimberley. It’s here you’ll be faced with some of the most breathtaking scenery and landscapes. The richness and vividness of the colours in the cliff faces, the blues in the ocean and the depth of the gradient in the sunset as your ride along Cable Beach on the back of a camel will have you questioning if what you see before you is some kind of mirage. Believe us, it’s real. Take in the natural wonders of the surrounding national parks, have a pearler of a time learning about the pearl industry and history of the place. Broome is a tropical delight just waiting to be tasted and Eco Beach Wilderness Retreat looks an absolute treat.

 

Uluru, Alice Springs

Uluru, the majestic red centre and heart and soul of our country. Be immersed in the sheer grandeur of the over 500 million year old sacred formation. Take in the stark red dirt and contrasting skies, the vast and dry surrounds of the area whilst ballooning over the top it all, enjoy scrumptious dinners underneath the sprawling sheet of stars that is the milky way and enjoy being fully present and connecting to this truly magical place. Longitude 131 is the perfect place to escape to and is sheer luxe.

 

Eyre Peninsula, SA

The seafood frontier and oyster capital of Australia. Eat them straight from the sea in Coffin Bay with a glass of champagne to sweeten the deal, swim with sea lions, dolphins or great whites if you dare (cage included of course). Marvel at monuments and natural wonders and wildlife and shack up at the Camel Beach House with a view as far as the eye can see.

 

 

Great Mackerel Beach, NSW

The most divine spot, teetering on the tip of Great Mackerel Beach lies The Little Black Shack. It’s only accessible by water which requires you to take the vintage ferry from Palm beach with all your supplies on hand as the beach holds no shops, no cars, no roads. But the trade off is lush, native bushland, views across to Barrenjoey Lighthouse and complete serenity.

 

 

Daylesford, VIC

Rich with history and plenty to do and see, honeymooning in Daylesford in the Macedon ranges just makes sense. It’s home to the sweetest boutique shops and strip and restaurants to delight the senses. And for when you want to trek out and about, the quaint towns of Kyneton and Woodend await with troves of vintage treasures. And let’s not forget soothing any post wedding stresses with a soak and spa at the nearby springs. Our pick for a honeymoon accommodation is the stunning Lake House.

 

Charter a boat around the Whitsundays, QLD

Want to feel the wind in your hair more so than the sand beneath your feet? Then why not treat yourself to a chartered yacht around the tranquil turquoise waters of the Whitsundays. Swim, frolic, snorkel, dive and kayak to your hearts content whilst being subjected to tropical paradise.
