Australia is a land of pleasant surprises and romance for the newly-wed bride and groom. There’s a very unique way of life in Australia – a shared spirit that they call their Philausophy. Whether you’re seeking tranquillity, reconnection, adventure or indulgence, you’ll find just what you’re looking for in Australia. Sip on whisky made with pure Tasmanian ingredients, reconnect with nature from an eco-chalet overhanging the ocean or drink and dine at exciting new venues. From glamping tents within a vineyard to body clay rituals inspired by Aboriginal culture, there’s always something new to experience in Australia.
1. Adelaide Hills
In Adelaide, every season is another reason to visit and the lunches last all afternoon. Cuddle a koala, meet their winemakers, enjoy a craft beer or cider, pick your own fruit, or come for one of the many events. While regional gateways are just a 20-minute drive from Adelaide, be sure to explore further afield and take your time to revel in the romance of an Adelaide Hills affair.
2. Cradle Mountains
Part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness Area, the surrounding landscape is diverse and includes grassland, rainforest and ancient plants such as the long-lived King Billy pine and the native ‘fagus’ or deciduous beech.

The Whitsundays are made up of 74 Island Wonders, on the beautiful tropical coast of Queensland, Australia.

The stunning natural landscapes of the coast and islands are dotted with secluded beaches and friendly towns.
4. Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island is one of the world’s great nature-based destinations. Think of an island with 509km of Coastline & 155km from the East Coast to the West Coast.
