Every person wishing to read about romantic places gets a tad disappointed at the end because not all the places they like make it to the list. This is because people have different taste, and if you write about destinations on a tropical island, each description will contain words like “coconut groves” or “seaside resorts.”
Australia is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world for just engaged and newly married couples, with beautiful landscapes- a fairy tale romantic getaway to the land of stunning beaches and desserts.
It’s really tough to select only the 5 top most romantic places in Australia.
1. Bathing In Byron Bay
The state of New South Wales can boast Byron Bay, a beach side town named after the grandfather of Lord George Gordon Byron, the lauded English Romantic poet. Since it is situated on the coast, it is no wonder that most popular activates include surfing and whale watching.
Apart from those, you can walk in the nearby subtropical rain forests or enjoy the view from the pristine white Cape Byron lighthouse. However, what romantic couple will be interested in the most, are massages and spa treatments. All the ingredients used in aromatherapy here are natural, so it is up to you to choose if you prefer a mineral spa or the steam room.
2. The Exclusivity Of Lord Howe Island
Another jewel in the crown of New South Wales is Lord Howe Island, located in the Tasman Sea, some 600 kilometers of the Australian mainland. It is a refuge for many bird species and the surrounding waters are teeming with marine life.
That is why bird watching, scuba diving, and snorkeling seem to be the most interesting activities.
However, the most important reason why might find Lord Howe Island alluring is the exclusivity of the offer, as only 400 tourists are allowed at the same time because the island is small and has limited resources.
2. Wine Touring In Hunter Valley
The Hunter region north of Sydney is a biodiverse region that is perhaps the greenest part of Australia. It is foremost known for its wine production industry that dates back to the beginning of the 19th century.
This is also a horse breeding region that has endless pastures that form a memorable landscape. No wonder then that some 2.5 million people visit it each year, using the affordable Hunter Valley accommodation packages that local hoteliers have to offer. Besides conference tourism, weddings are quite common here, because newlyweds get a chance to go with their guests on a wine tour as the ceremony’s after-party.
3. Great Views At The Great Barrier Reef
An island in the midst of the Great Barrier Reef shaped like a heart? If you thought this was the ideal location to pop the question, then we must somewhat disappoint you as thousands of others have done this before you.
However, Whitsundays in the state of Queensland is so magical that no proposal is a cliché. The shape of Heart Island (someone was original naming it) might be random but there is nothing random about the feelings that will bring you two here.
Located some 80km off the coast of Airlie Beach, Whitsundays boasts several resorts and bungalow where you can stay. The most popular activates include snorkeling and scenic flights that allow you to observe the marine life from the air.
4. Exotic Wildlife Experience Of Tasmania
Although the island south of the Australian mainland became world famous because of a nasty looking animal that was made into a cartoon, Tasmania is known for its vast, largely protected reserves, lush tropical forests, and besotting wildlife . In fact, its tropical landscape seems almost angelic, like the clear waters of Lake St Clair.
Located north-west from the capital of Hobart, this picturesque lake is surrounded by rain forest and further uphill by snow-capped mountains.
Newlyweds like to come here for their honeymoon because it is so quiet and the lakeside bungalows are simple in design but luxuriously furnished on the inside. Visitors can canoe across the lake and taste the local delicacies such as cured meats, several wine brands, and cheese.
