11 of Australia’s best honeymoon hotels

From a front-row view of the Sydney Opera House to luxury lodges in scenic countryside, Australia is honeymooner heaven.


By Katrina Lobley

Whatever it is you want from a honeymoon – to get away from it all or to be in the middle of bustling activity - Australia is the perfect place. Take a look at some of our favourite honeymoon hotels.  

QUALIA, HAMILTON ISLAND, WHITSUNDAY ISLANDS, QUEENSLAND

Qualia, Hamilton Island, Queensland

At the northern tip of Hamilton Island, on Queensland's Great Barrier Reef, is qualia, the island’s most prestigious address. This is where 60 pavilions, fashioned from bluestone, hoop pine and hardwood, are nestled among the gum trees. Romantic couples can make a request to be dropped off at a secluded beach on a nearby island with a picnic hamper.  

EMIRATES ONE&ONLY WOLGAN VALLEY RESORT, BLUE MOUNTAINS, NEW SOUTH WALES

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

Beyond the Blue Mountains is Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley. The conservation-based resort occupies a tiny part of a vast nature reserve that attracts grazing wallabies (they belong to the same family as kangaroos) and wombats (burrowing animals). Take a dip in your own private pool and admire your villa's beautiful architecture, inspired by Australia's Federation period.

SOUTHERN OCEAN LODGE, KANGAROO ISLAND, SOUTH AUSTRALIA

On Tasmania's east coast, Saffire Freycinet is a luxury lodge with suites and private pavilions facing the Hazards mountain range. Guests can choose from their complimentary experiences such as archery, where guides teach you the finer points of shooting a recurve bow on their private archery range, and a guided canoeing adventure, where couples can observe flocks of pelicans in the crystal-clear waters.If you’re looking for an interesting experience, Saffire offers a very popular and complimentary oyster farm visit. You and your better-half can enjoy some of the best pacific oysters served at a table set with white-linen. So go ahead and indulge at one of Tasmania’s best lodges and create your perfect honeymoon.

PARK HYATT, SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES

Park Hyatt, Sydney, New South Wales

There's no city view in Australia more remarkable than the Park Hyatt Sydney. Open the curtains to celebrate togetherness as you take in the sight of the Sydney Opera House backlit by the sunrise.

LONGITUDE 131, ULURU-KATA TJUTA NATIONAL PARK, RED CENTRE, NORTHERN TERRITORY

Longitude 131, Uluru, Northern Territory

Near Uluru, in the heart of Australia, is Longitude 131. This romantic luxury wilderness camp sits atop rust-red sand dunes, offering an extraordinary view of Uluru, which looks its blazing best at sunset.

LIZARD ISLAND, GREAT BARRIER REEF, QUEENSLAND

Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef, Queensland

Lizard Island, Queensland’s northernmost island resort, doesn't allow kids aged nine and under, making it the perfect honeymoon destination for couples. There are just 40 rooms and suites, and 24 white sand beaches to explore. Enjoy some quality time with your loved ones on a lovely island off the Great Barrier Reef.

EL QUESTRO HOMESTEAD, THE KIMBERLEY, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

El Questro Wilderness Park, Kimberley, Western Australia

El Questro Wilderness Park, in Western Australia's east Kimberley region, offers a range of accommodation, but nothing beats checking in to the Homestead. The Chamberlain Suite, perched out over the river of the same name, is the pick of the accommodation.

THE LOUISE, BAROSSA VALLEY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA

The Louise, Barossa Valley, South Australia

The Louise, in the famed Barossa Valley wine region north of Adelaide, is home to luxurious suites as well as a celebrated destination restaurant. Appellation showcases produce from the Barossa and South Australia, which it pairs with the region's finest wines. Some suites feature a luxurious outdoor shower and there's also an infinity-edge lap pool with views over the vines and olive groves.

LAKE HOUSE, DAYLESFORD, VICTORIA

Lake House, Daylesford, Victoria

At Lake House, a boutique hotel set at the edge of Lake Daylesford, you can soak in the famous mineral waters of Daylesford in a cozy tub inside a secluded tree-top cabin. The hotel’s cutting-edge restaurant is nationally acclaimed.

CAPELLA LODGE, LORD HOWE ISLAND, NEW SOUTH WALES

Capella Lodge, Lord Howe Island, New South Wales

Lord Howe Island is less than 800 kilometres (500 miles) from Sydney, but it's the ultimate place to switch off as it has no mobile phone reception. Couples can swim among colourful fish and turtles or take great photos against the majestic rocks – Mount Gower and Mount Lidgbird – that define the island's southern profile. Enjoy the front-row view of both from the pool at Capella Lodge!
