Just thinking about Australia makes you picture yourself in wild landscapes, getting ready to explore the Outback. There are so many amazing things to see that an extended honeymoon is the perfect choice, whether you prefer lazing on a beach or an all-action break.
Thanks to its geographical location on the other side of the world, Australia is a country that offers experiences that you'll find almost nowhere else. The suburb of Coolangatta, to the south of City of Gold Coast, is famous for being the best place for surfers. It's the perfect place to pit yourself against the waves and, if you go up the coast a little further north, you can dive on the Great Barrier Reef for an additional thrill. After that, all you have to do is check out the koalas in You Yangs Regional Park in Victoria, near Melbourne, or hire a van for a road trip, and your Australian all-action honeymoon list will be fully ticked off.
If you'd prefer your Australian honeymoon to be more relaxing, the diversity of the country's landscapes will enable you to find the peace and quiet you're looking for. One of the places that's most sacred to the Aborigines is the famous Uluru, perhaps better known as Ayers Rock. This huge 350 metre high rock can be seen in the Outback, not far from the town of Alice Springs. Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and the rock offers a link to the distant past and is a UNESCO World Heritage site associated with the beliefs of one of the oldest societies in the world.
Australia also has plenty offer from the wellbeing point of view and is the perfect destination for seekers after relaxation, with numerous spas and hot springs in the Mornington Peninsula in south-eastern Victoria. A honeymoon in Australia gives you the chance to visit some of the country's most beautiful cities, such as Perth on the west coast, where the motto is "No worries" reflecting the laid-back atmosphere of this elegant city, where you can enjoy open-air concerts or a cruise on the Swan River.
A romantic stroll on one of Australia's paradise beaches is beyond compare, particularly if find yourself on Fraser Island, the world's largest sand island which is full of natural, protected treasures, including 350 species of birds, the famous Australian dingoes and wallabies, along with fabulous flowering plants.
