Babymoon Travel Destinations In Australia

Babymoon Travel Destinations In AustraliaFirst comes love. Then comes marriage. But before the baby arrives in the baby carriage, an increasing number of couples are taking a babymoon. Here are five easy, relaxing trips that offer the ultimate pregnant pause.

Get Mellow in Byron Bay

Get Mellow in Byron BayThis famous hippie beach town in the far northeastern corner of New South Wales has a funky, relaxed vibe that couldn’t be more laid-back. Leave your parenting worries at home and embrace the mellow mood as you laze on balmy beaches, wander the Byron’s Farmers Market for regional delicacies, and dine in low-key cafes. The beach west of the town’s centre is unofficially clothing-optional. We’ll leave it to you to decide how much of your bump you want to show off.

Marvel at Nature in Walpole

Marvel at Nature in WalpoleOn the brink of giving birth, there’s nothing like touching one of the tallest trees on earth to make you feel connected to nature and its staggering power. The Karri trees in Walpole-Nornalup National Park regularly grow to more than 80 metres in height. But those aren’t the only trees worthy of the trip: Eucalypt and flowering gum trees make a colorful backdrop for babymoon photos. When booking your trip, keep in mind that Walpole is the bigger of two peaceful inlets (and, importantly on a babymoon, the one with better mobile coverage).

Fill Up on Culture in Perth

Fill Up on Culture in PerthSoon-to-be parents know that travel is often put on hold once the new baby arrives. So, culture vultures will want to use their babymoon for one last fix, and laid-back Perth is happy to oblige. The city’s reputation for being accessible and tidy is trumped only by its reputation for great cultural offerings. The Art Gallery of Western Australia houses state luminaries such as Arthur Boyd, Sidney Nolan, and Grace Cossington Smith. Other must-visits include the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Holmes a Court Gallery. With plenty of things to do, Perth is the ideal babymoon destination.

Coo at Cute Creatures in Brisbane

Coo at Cute Creatures in BrisbaneThere are dozens of reasons to visit Brisbane, from its lush parks and historic buildings to its energetic arts scene and fantastic restaurants. But those on a babymoon should be prepared to spend some serious time at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, near the summit of Mount Coot-tha, not too far from Brisbane itself. This marsupial haven is home to all manner of kangaroos, wallabies and wombats, as well as more than 100 koalas eager to cuddle and eat straight from your hands.

Unplug in Hobart

Unplug in HobartWith its breathtaking scenery, bountiful wildlife, and large swaths of uninhabited wilderness, Tasmania is an ideal place to unplug from the day-to-day and reconnect on a babymoon. Along with being the state’s capital, Hobart is an ideal base from which to explore the island. Plush hotels and spas make it easy to pamper yourself in between all your sightseeing. Don’t miss MONA: Just 12 kilometers north of the city centre, the sprawling museum is a provocative mash-up of ancient antiquities and contemporary works.
