Top 5 Honeymoon Destinations in Australia (Places to Discover)
From trendy touristy destinations to islands off the beaten path, Australia truly does have something for everyone! We’ve included a video overview of each spot for you, too!
1. Makepeace Island
Forget the heart-shaped chocolates and heart-shaped balloons; this sanctuary is everything you need to celebrate your love.
The heart-shaped island is named after a housekeeper who inherited it in the 1930s. So, it all started as a result of love.
There are so many things you can do regardless of how adventurous you are. Some of the island facilities include kayaks, tennis courts, lagoon swimming pools, and stand-up paddleboards, just to mention a few.
And if you’d want something more slow-paced activities, you can enjoy a remedial or therapeutic massage, relax in the bathtub, enjoy the outdoor moonlight cinema, or sip cocktails.
The island accommodates only 22 couples at a time, so it’s important to make your arrangements and bookings in advance.
When it comes to amenities, the island has everything that you need – great accommodation and restaurants.
2. Noosa, Queensland
This is one of the world’s biggest destinations for surfing and paddle boating, making it a perfect honeymoon choice if you love adventures. The peaceful beach adds to the beauty of the ceremony, and you can remind your partner how much you love them under the palm trees.
You can also have a nature walk through Noosa National Park, and you might even be lucky to see wild koalas. And after the long walk and surfing, you can enjoy a few drinks at the sails Beach House to cool off.
The best places to stay in Noosa include Ricky’s river bar, Noosa waterfront, and Sails restaurant.
3. The Kimberley, Australia
There is so much you can do for fun at the Kimberley. For starters, you can start with a good swim at Lake Argyle, which is the largest freshwater human-made reservoir in Australia. And go for a half-day cruise for fishing and birdwatching tours.
You can also fly over the Bungle Bungle Range in Purnululu National Park. Bungle Bungle Range’s unique set of beehive-shaped karst sandstone domes have been in existence for more than 350 years. The orange and black striped domes are quite a scene, and seeing them should definitely be on your bucket list.
Best places to stay in Kimberley include Kimberley hotel, The Berkeley River Lodge, and El Questro Station Homestead.
4. Hobart, Tasmania
This is another great honeymoon destination in Australia. It’s about an hour’s flight from Melbourne so you can combine the two trips.
One of Hobart’s most exciting activities is wine tasting, as it’s only 20 minutes from the Coal River Valley, which is among the main wine-producing areas. You can take a drive and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the area and the best family-run wineries.
Make a point of visiting Aloft for a breathtaking meal as it’s one of the best restaurants in the state. They have several dishes with an Asian twist; all prepared from fresh Tasmania produce.
5. Kangaroo Island
This is the perfect place for your honeymoon if you want to unwind and get everything to perspective away from all the noise.
Kangaroo island is scarcely populated and secluded, making it so serene. You can enjoy the white beaches, visit the American River and enjoy spending some time with wildlife.
The best places to stay on Kangaroo island include Tammar Ridge, Southern Ocean Lodge Kangaroo Isle, and Mercure Kangaroo Island Lodge.
Besides the big day, the other best part of getting married is going on a honeymoon and enjoying some alone time together.
Where you go for your honeymoon is important because it’s the vacation you get to narrate about for the rest of your lives.
