Honeymoon couples are spoilt for choice here and abroad.

There’s a destination within budget to suit every honeymooning couple. Here’s just a few to consider.

Overseas escapes
Europe is at the top of the list for honeymooning couples and home to some of the world’s most romantic destinations says Kim Tomlinson, Emirates’ Regional Manager, Queensland.

“Paris and Vienna stand out as the traditional favourites amongst travelling couples, but we are also seeing growing bookings to new and different destinations such as Barcelona and Stockholm.”

Overseas but only four hours away is the bluest of oceans, an island born of lava and sand called Likuliku, meaning ‘calm waters’. For the honeymooner, the Likuliku Lagoon Resort Fiji is adults-only and has won numerous awards in the luxury travel category. And it is not unusual for a Likuliku experience to be on a wedding register!

The reef and islands
We are spoilt so close to the Great Barrier Reef and some of the best islands in the world.

Honeymooners are flocking to Heron Island to enjoy the natural beauty of this picture-postcard castaway island. See yourself there? Its location right on the Great Barrier Reef means guests can literally put on their snorkel and flippers and step out onto the reef.

At the top of the Great Barrier Reef you will find Lizard Island. For luxury and privacy, Lizard Island is hard to pass. Consistently ranked as one of the top 10 hotels in the world, it offers honeymooners luxurious accommodation in just 40 villas and suites, a diving paradise and the ultimate in romantic beachside dining. And you thought your wedding day was going to be the most romantic day of your life!

Want everything laid on? Then try a Romance Me Whitsundays package. It includes the most romantic picnic ever…a personalised scenic helicopter flight to a deserted Whitsunday Island including a champagne picnic hamper, beach umbrella, rug and snorkelling gear. Sigh!

Closer to home
North Stradbroke Island has hosted many honeymooners who want to get to their destination now! Stay in waterfront cabins or luxury apartments with views across the Pacific Ocean! This is where memories are made that will last a lifetime and just one hour from Brisbane.

If you want to feel a million miles away but be there now, then consider our Gold and Sunshine Coasts. For example, at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort honeymooners can reserve a private sunbed overlooking the oneacre beach lagoon pool, dine at The Fireplace restaurant (it even sounds romantic) or stroll to The Marine Village for a bit of shopping.

Want to be enveloped in a secluded treehouse? Pethers Rainforest Retreat on Tamborine Mountain has been designed exclusively for adults. Ten private Tree Houses offer a private spa and living areas with five metre high glass windows to an outdoor balcony with spectacular views. Oh yes!

There’s so many options, so little time…here’s to good weather!
