Exploring New South Wales
Any trip to Australia brings adventure along with it and honeymoons cannot be excluded from this norm. New South Wales is no exception; enjoy the thrill of exploring vast Outback plains, wild rivers, snow-capped mountains, plunging waterfalls, and forest-clad hills. Added to the appeal of this region is the great Big Volcano national park, miles of blue coastline, the world’s largest coral reef, exotic tropical islands, 800 bird species, rolling surf, 25,000 years old rock art, and a wildlife that’s uniquely Australian. As a couple, you’ll enjoy bonding over activities such as camel trekking, bungee jumping, rafting, hot-air ballooning, canoeing, motorcycle touring, and exploring theme parks. What more could you ask of from a honeymoon?
Exploring Honeymoon Beaches
What better than to spend your honeymoon on the pristine, untouched sugar sands of an Australian beach? Love the beach for a honeymoon? Many honeymoon couples visit the coasts east and west of Australia, famous for their endless miles of white sand-framed blue coastline. Go ahead and pull on your fins for a great snorkeling adventure with the huge, gentle whale sharks. Or, take your beloved scuba diving on the largest coral reef off the east coast of Australia.
Popular honeymoon beach destinations are the Margaret River Shipwreck Coast in the south-west, the Ninety Mile Beach at Lakes Entrance east of Melbourne, the Kangaroo Island in South Australia, and the many beaches of Sydney. Even though Sydney’s beaches are city beaches, you can surf to your heart’s content, and explore secret harbor beaches and dramatic cliff headlands and walk in sleepy bays. Australia’s Bondi beach is just minutes from Sydney. For a truly cosmopolitan experience with the holiday element thrown in, the Bondi beach is your best bet.
Sydney has its roots as a settlement for British convicts; however, today’s Sydney hardly resembles its origins. For a honeymooning couple, Sydney offers much excitement, as the dynamic, thriving city has magnificent cityscapes that include the harbor view, the magnificent Opera House, busy waters with ferries, yachts, boats and tourists from different cultures. The city vibrates with culture and life. Sydney offers great accommodations for honeymooning couples, such as Grand Hyatt hotels and Melbourne’s Sheraton Southgate. If you are on a budget, choose to stay at the Accor Asia Pacific and Southern Pacific Hotels. You can also opt to stay at farms, and experience the day-to-day activities of a working farm.
Melbourne offers many activities and great accommodations for any tourist, and a honeymooning couple will find Melbourne’s attractions perfect for a great memory. Melbourne is the perfect couple’s getaway, and if you enjoy fine food, wine and shopping, Melbourne, Australia’s gourmet capital, is the perfect place for you to honeymoon.
Melbourne has many great restaurants, stage shows, comedy clubs, wine bars, nightclubs and live music bars that’ll keep you enthralled for weeks. Melbourne offers excellent luxurious accommodation and special discounts for honeymooners. Melbourne is an exciting city where everything happens; take your pick from international sporting events, to wonderful entertainment, food, shopping, adventures, gardens, and wine destinations.
For the more adventurous couples, there’s hot air ballooning to be had, apart from speedboat rides, surfing, and many other thrills.
Exploring Australian Islands
Enjoy both the fantastic beaches and tourism in the Lizard or Bedarra Island, located off the coast of north Queensland near Cairns. You’ll find private resorts here that are exclusive, since they restrict the number of guests. You can also enjoy a stay in Hayman Island, which also is a beautiful, upscale luxury resort island. The Hayman Island is not as private as the Lizard or Bedarra islands, however. The Hayman Island is located mid way along the coast of Queensland. You can get there via flight or launch. Lord Howe Island’s Capella Lodge is an upscale property on a mountainous island, comprising a spa, a lodge, many spectacular views and outdoor activities.
