Why Australia Is A Prospective Honeymoon Location

By  | 

Australia is a very big country and hence, making a decision to take your honeymoon here is like choosing the United States as your destination. It sounds like a very good idea but you are wondering where you should start because few countries have as many different landscapes as this country and even fewer can offer you enough unoccupied open space. Australia is usually referred to as a “last frontier” country and hence, if you want to have a pioneer-style getaway, it offers you plenty of places to cast a line from your desired deserted beach or pitch a tent so that you can enjoy a swim without any disturbance. Australia is a unique destination to honeymoon because it has amazing natural wonders and wildlife. Many wonderful and weird Australian animal species that include creatures such as the Tasmanian devil, platypus, emu, kangaroo, wallaby, koala, numbat, wombat, and echidna have been able to survive because of isolation from the other parts of the world.

Where you can find all the action

1. The east coast

Australia’s east coast is the focal point of most of the activities of this country. Majority of Australians live here, either in large cosmopolitan cities or in small coastal and country towns, and most honeymoon couples usually visit here. This place is also renowned for its coastline that is the source of the beach lifestyle of Australia. If you want unique ocean adventures, you should try scuba diving on the world’s largest coral reef that is off the east coast or snorkelling with the gentle, massive whale sharks that are off the west coast.
