The Blue Mountains has been a favourite romantic getaway destination for almost as long as Australians have been enjoying holidays.
Today, The Blue Mountains still attracts everyone from the couple seeking an idyllic country escape from the city’s hustle and bustle, to young honeymooners who have decided to find out why The Blue Mountains was once one of Australia’s most popular honeymoon destinations. The Blue Mountains is just 90 minutes from Sydney, a convenient distance for a short break away.
A honeymoon at the Blue Mountains is ideal for nature lovers, art aficionados, art buffs and gourmands with the area boasting a huge array of fine restaurants and cafes. The Blue Mountains are so named because of the distinctive blue haze created by rays of light that come into contact with fine droplets of oils released into the air by the eucalypts covering the landscape.
Rugged, remote and rich with history and culture, coast-hugging Broome offers a unique mix of world-class natural beauty and small-town charm.
An exotic outpost in the isolated Kimberley region of north-west Australia, few places in the world are blessed with Broome’s trifecta of wildly beautiful beaches, cultural diversity and fascinating heritage. Broome’s wealth was built on mother-of-pearl, when the shell of the pearl oyster was used to make buttons. At the industry’s peak in 1912, more than 2,000 Japanese, Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Timorese and Pacific Islanders worked here. Two world wars, followed by the introduction of plastic buttons in the Fifties, brought the local pearl-shell trade to an end, but the rise of cultured pearling has breathed fresh life into the town’s love affair with luxury. Add this romantic getaway to your wish-list.

The Freycinet Peninsula is a land of sugar-white beaches, clear blue seas, shady forests and heathlands scattered with wildflowers.

Equally remarkable are the wide deserted beaches and aquamarine shallows at Bryans and Cooks beaches on the western side of the peninsula, facing into protected Great Oyster Bay.

Widely acclaimed as Australia’s Galapagos, Kangaroo Island is home to an abundance of native wildlife and spectacular natural attractions. Covering almost 4,500 square kilometres it is Australia’s third largest island and offers the best of the mainland on a smaller, more intimate scale.
Flanked by the indomitable Southern Ocean, dramatic coastal vistas and sculptured landscapes lay unspoiled by development and riddled with sheer limestone cliffs, sheltered coves, rocky headlands and deserted stretches of sugar-white sand.
Against this stunning natural backdrop rests a distinguished epicurean culture, ably supported by a profusion of fresh seafood, unique local produce and the acclaimed vignerons of South Australia’s Coonawarra, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley regions.
