A honeymoon is probably one of the most significant vacations you will go on in your entire life and for that reason you want to make sure you destination is absolutely perfect! Whether you lovebirds are after a country getaway or a beach escape, New South Wales, Australia has it all. If you were thinking about heading this way for your upcoming honeymoon we have picked out some of the best spots in the area for you to take your special someone.
The Hunter Valley
Located just 2 hours north of Sydney, the Hunter Valley is infamous for its wineries and fine dining, making it the perfect spot for a romantic getaway. As Australia’s oldest wine region, there is plenty to do and see here, however if you’d just rather enjoy each other’s company, taking in the breathtaking landscape in luxurious accommodation then you have come to the right place.
With over 150 wineries to choose from, going wine tasting is definitely a recommendation of mine. There are plenty of wine tours available in the region, visiting several different wineries, distilleries and some even including gourmet food tasting!
Do your research and pick the best one for you. If you and your partner are a little more adventurous you should try Hot Air Ballooning. There are a few different companies that offer this in the Hunter Valley, flying high over the wine region in the early morning to watch the sunset.
Lord Howe Island
If you’re after a more tropical destination for your honeymoon then look no further than Lord Howe Island. Don’t forget to pack your camera because this is one spectacular island! Just a short two hour flight from Sydney, the UNESCO World Heritage listed location is full of snorkelling, fishing and diving for all lovers of the ocean.
If you’d rather spend your time relaxing on white sandy beaches, there is plenty of room for that too. On the island’s Ned’s Beach you can get extremely close to marine life and coral as you hand feed a range of different fish - this is truly a memorable experience. If you’d rather stay on top of the water you can test your skills at paddleboarding or kayaking in order to explore the island with your partner in your own way.
If you’re into the outdoors and perhaps your partner isn’t, we’ve got a great solution - glamping! Enjoy the best of both worlds, surrounded by nature but having all the facilities of a hotel, what more could one want?
That’s exactly what you can do in Jervis Bay. Just under three hours south of Sydney, Jervis Bay is beautifully located surrounded by white sandy beaches and gorgeous national parks. It’s here where you can experience a combination of fine foods, local wine and what can only be described as luxury canvas accomodation!
These glamorous safari-style tents are fit with queen beds, contemporary furniture and your own grand ensuite! This will be one memorable experience for you and your significant other to enjoy!
