If you’re considering celebrating your honeymoon in Australia, here are a few suggestions from Adventures Beyond on how we can help you create memories to last a lifetime.
Choose your destination
Planning a wedding can be overwhelming especially juggling finances, and you’ll no doubt be considering a budget for your honeymoon following your big day.
There are plenty of places to go in Australia where you can enjoy some solitude, relaxation and tranquillity. Or if you prefer an adventure off-the-beaten track you’ll also find lots of options!
Australia is a huge country and the landscape varies immensely so it’s vital to choose your destination (or destinations) to enable you to focus on a budget. Consider what type of climate you like. What kind of activities do you enjoy doing? Do you want to travel using a luxury 4WD?
Queensland is a popular destination for honeymoons and that’s not surprising with a variety of natural attractions that are perfect backdrops for romantic sunsets and a glass of champagne – visit the world famous Great Barrier Reef and go snorkelling at pristine Whitehaven Beach, go sailing in the Whitsundays, or roam the rainforests of the Atherton Tablelands.
Further south, New South Wales and Victoria are full of surprises. Sydney and Melbourne are must-see cities – vibrant nightlife, cosmopolitan cafes, excellent sightseeing and shopping. Branching further out, imagine joining Adventures Beyond and taking in the sights of the Blue Mountains or Great Ocean Road, two iconic destinations in Australia.
Tasmania is a fantastic place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, see amazing wildlife and find a slice of paradise. Capture breath taking scenery at Freycinet National Park, sample local wines or if you love adventure, you could try jet boating on the King River bound by mountains.
South Australia offers many activities and attractions to suit all interests and Adelaide, the South Australian capital, is a lovely city for exploring or using as a base to discover the beauty of South Australia. If you want to see wildlife in Australia on your honeymoon, Kangaroo Island is the best place to go. You can choose to star gaze in the Flinders Ranges, visit one of the many world class vineyards for a glass or two of the finest South Australian wines or join Adventures Beyond on an incredible adventure to cross the Nullarbor, one of Australia’s best road trips.
Perth is the main city of Western Australia and provides a superb hub for enjoying Australia’s most western state. Western Australia offers some of the most spectacular scenery in Australia and unique experiences you’ll remember for a lifetime. Grab your camera and capture precious moments in time - go snorkelling with whale sharks or manta rays at Ningaloo Reef, sample wines at Margaret River vineyards, immerse yourself in the wonder of the Treetops Walk or join a sunset camel ride for something a bit different.
Visit the Red Centre or head north to some of Australia’s most stunning National Parks for once-in-a-lifetime experiences. You can experience a delicious dinner for two under the Australian skies with the picturesque view of Uluru as a backdrop, swim at the cascading Gunlom Falls and plunge pools or listen to birdsong in the bush in the Litchfield National Park.
