Australia Honeymoon (Sydney, Hamilton Island, Brisbane)

Recommended Posts

We just came back from Australia and it was an awesome place! I totally would recommend it for an active honeymoon. We loved Hamilton Island and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary! The Great Barrier Reef is a scuba divers dream. Whitehaven beach was so pristine. Zorbing was a fun experience. Australia is a great place to explore and can't wait to go back.


Thanks for your feedback.

I am bumping this as I was going to post a new thread, but FI and I are honeymooning in Australia and New Zealand for 3 weeks after the wedding in Mexico.


Can anyone give me some advice that has been? We have our flights booked. We are going to Syd, Brisbane, Cairns, and Melbourne. Then off to New Zealand. Christchurch and Queenstown.


Anything I missed? Any input on must sees? This is our dream trip. July is going to be a whirlwind. Yep, we will be in mass debt. But totally worth it!


For the cost of a normal wedding at home..we instead opted for doing a Mexico wedding, an relaxed casual AHR, and we get to go to AUS and NZ.

October is a GREAT time to see Australia - the weather is amazing that time of year...


If you give me an idea of the kind of couple you are, I can suggest some things for you to do??
