Looking to start your marriage on the right foot?
Then you need to find somewhere suitably seductive for a romantic honeymoon.
From dreamy beaches to outback icons, we’re highlighting the best honeymoon destinations in Australia. Oozing with spectacular scenery and carefree serenity, these eight amorous locales have all the right ingredients for an intimate escape.
The Whitsundays, QLD
Set within the Great Barrier Reef, Australia’s most idyllic island chain is a dreamscape of dazzling aqua-hued water and squeaky white sand. Sleep in a sleek Airlie Beach boutique or savour the complete tropical paradise experience in a palm-fringed offshore resort. For the latter, try Hayman, Daydream, or Hamilton Island.
Byron Bay, NSW
Australia’s trendiest surf town is a magnet for bohemians and lovey-dovey honeymooners alike. Home to a bewildering array of chic boutiques, buzzing bars, and cool cafes, Byron offers all the trappings of a modern metropolis in a laidback little seaside hamlet. Oh, and the foodie scene is next-level.
Rising from the dusty red desert like a mirage, Uluru is among Australia’s most recognisable sites. Loved-up couples will adore the outback’s secluded, middle-of-nowhere vibe, not to mention the epic golden vistas come sunset. Nearby, Yulara has comfy lodgings and a small selection of scrumptious eateries.
Ningaloo Reef, WA
Not far from Exmouth, this magnificent ocean strip is WA’s answer to the Great Barrier Reef. A kaleidoscopic ensemble of curious marine species and colourful coral offers world-class snorkelling right off the beach. No need to explore offshore on a seasickness-inducing catamaran tour here.
Margaret River, WA
“Margs,” as the locals call it, is a paradisiacal slice of Australia’s South West with a penchant for gourmet gastronomy and wine. In-between farm-to-table feasts and boozy vineyard visits, you can tour its dazzling beaches, tall timber forests, and moody subterranean caves.
Lord Howe Island, NSW
Aching to get away from it all? This beautiful secluded island welcomes few tourists, making it an excellent option for a romantic escape. From frolicking in crystal-clear beaches to hiking spell-binding trails, this World Heritage-listed wonderland offers endless outdoor adventures.
Coles Bay, TAS
Tucked away in East Coast Tasmania, this stunning crescent-shaped bay makes for an idyllic mid-summer getaway. Honeymooners adore the vibrant blue waters and easy-going village vibes. And on its doorstep sits Freycinet National Park, a pink granite rock peninsula home to Tassie’s top coastal hikes.
Home to croc-infested rivers, curious cassowaries and gigantic 45-metre trees, the world’s oldest rainforest is heaven for nature-loving couples. Embark on boardwalk hikes and croc-spotting cruises by day, then cosy up in a rustic Cape Tribulation eco-lodge come night.
