Perth, Rottnest and Ningaloo Reef: Jewels in the Crown of Western Australia

Western Australia is a vast territory, most of it comprised of wild and unsettled outback. Most of its settled territory is far out along the southwest coast, thousands of miles from the metropolises to the east. But the beauty of the remote West is a must-see, especially for those honeymoon adventurers who want the full Australia experience.

Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is a city of captivating architecture and natural tropical beauty. Situated along the scenic Swan River on the aforementioned southwest coastline, Perth is Australia's fourth largest city, ranked as one of the world's most livable cities, and home to diverse cuisine, arts, and cultural experiences.

Perth's surrounding beaches, suburbs and countryside are equally beautiful. While in Perth, we recommend our clients on honeymoon enjoy the turquoise-blue waters and white sand beaches, as well a scenic walk, bike or kayak ride along the Swan River, one of Australia's loveliest waterways.

Rottnest Island: a unique natural wonder

Just off the Perth coast in the Indian Ocean lies Rottnest Island, another natural wonder that's sure to become a cherished memory of your Australia honeymoon. You and your love will experience the tropical beauty of Rottnest's world-famous salt lakes, secluded beaches and miles of scenic bike trails.

While on Rottnest, meet the friendly local Wadjemup people, who provide visitors with tours of the island and insights into their traditional culture. And what better to warm you and your love's hearts than an encounter with a friendly, cute little quokka or two? These little marsupials are famous for their friendly demeanor, often approaching humans with inquisitiveness and even affection.

Ningaloo Reef: Low-key High Adventure

About 745 miles north of Perth - just a quick trip by Australian standards, especially out West - and just off the beautiful, sandy coastline, lies Ningaloo Reef.

Rightly described as a "jewel in the crown of Western Australia," Ningaloo offers a unique experience from the more-famous Great Barrier Reef, with most of the reef being easily accessible with a quick swim from shore.

For our honeymooning clients, we recommend the Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef resort, an exclusive safari camp comprised of luxurious private tents scattered among the white sand dunes of Western Australia's Cape Range National Park.

You and your love will enjoy your nights in privacy and comfort, and the morning, all it takes is a stroll out to the gentle waves and a quick swim or snorkel. Soon you'll be swimming among 250 species of coral and over 500 species of fish in one of the world's most majestic fringing reefs.
