Great Barrier Reef For Honeymooners

Queensland is a hotspot for couples, honeymooners and now babymooners looking for a quiet getaway or to mark a special occasion. There is an enormous amount of locations to choose from but the Whitsundays and Port Douglas are among the most popular places.

Port Douglas , an hour north of Cairns, is a small seaside village with a number of high end resorts that are scattered around the Four Mile Beach. With balmy temperatures all year round and a close proximity to the reef for tours, this town is a great romantic getaway for couples. The village also has a number of dining options, boutique shops and day spas to indulge in.

The Whitsundays is another location that attracts many couples looking for a private getaway. Choose from any number of resorts with stunning ocean views in Airlie Beach overlooking Abel Point Marina and the beach. This vibrant hub offers a selection of dining, nightlife and shopping.

If you are looking for a tropical island getaway then Hamilton Island comes highly recommended. The island is an internationally known island within the Great Barrier Reef with world class luxury accommodation. Choose from the reef view hotel rooms, villas, bungalows, beach club, holiday homes or the luxurious Qualia resort. Relax in any of the island resort pools or indulge in the delicious Australian cuisine on offer.

The huge number of water sports available mean you can do as little or as much as you wish. It is also an ideal place to base yourself to venture to the iconic Whitehaven Beach or the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Don’t miss out on a scenic helicopter flight over the ‘Heart Reef’ which is a popular site for wedding proposals.
