Honeymooning in Queensland
Queensland attracts thousands of visitors every year. Looking at the abundance of beaches, national parks, and the proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, it is easy to see why the Sunshine State is so popular among tourists. However, it isn’t only adventurers and surfers on a Noosa holiday who head to Queensland; newlyweds looking for the ultimate in romance and tranquility on their honeymoon make their way here as well.
Here is why Queensland is the ultimate destination for a romantic honeymoon:
1. Fall in love in style on secluded, sandy beaches
The period right after marriage is special, and Queensland is the perfect place to go and take those romantic walks on the beach. Whether you want to see a waterfall in one of the numerous national parks, or wade into an ocean as calm and tranquil as you can imagine, you can do both in the same afternoon in the Sunshine State.
2. See the natural wonders of Wilson Island
You might think of this natural wonder as more of a destination for Jacques Cousteau, but Wilson Island, at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, is the perfect destination for couples who want to experience the local flora and fauna when on their honeymoon. Only twelve guests at a time get the privilege to make this their honeymoon destination, so plan well in advance, if you want to see the exotic birds and other treats on Wilson Island. Also, be aware that the Wilson Island is closed in February when birds nest.
3. Go yachting in the Whitsundays
Would chartering a private yacht and setting sail with only your soulmate aboard make for the perfect honeymoon? If so, you should look into the honeymoon packages allowing couples to experience this stunning part of Queensland. You call the shots: if you’d like to stop and go diving with your loved one, it’s up to you. The area is perfect for sailing year-round, and you can stop at the tiny, unpopulated islands scattered around the area.
4. Take pampering to the next level at a luxury resort
If you aren’t interested in taking matters into your own hands and prefer to be pampered in style on your honeymoon, resort hotels like the one in Qualia will be the perfect choice for your special getaway. Elegant dining in restaurants and cocktails by the shimmering pools, are an ideal way to end a day of spa treatments, massages, and dips into the cool blue ocean. You could also choose to stay at a furnished apartment.
5. Get the best of all worlds on Bedarra Island
Honeymooners can land at Cairns and head over to this peaceful resort, where spas and relaxation are the order of the day. The proximity to both the rainforest and the gorgeous beaches make this place ideal for couples who want to fully experience Queensland’s natural beauty. It really does make for the perfect honeymooning destination.
People go on holidays in Queensland for a wide range of reasons. But making the Sunshine State the destination for your honeymoon might be the best reason of all. Now is the time to start planning the perfect honeymoon in Queensland!
