Itinerary and hotel/resort recommendations for our honeymoon

Jump to last reply

We have decided on three weeks in Australia and New Zealand for our honeymoon in July.
First of all, I am concerned we may be trying to fit too much in and am wondering if we should cut out New Zealand. We don't expect to get back to this area but we don't want to come home exhausted. Here is what we have charted out so far:

Sydney 3 nights
Great Barrier Reef 3 nights
Daintree 2 nights
Uluru 2 nights
Adelaide 3 nights
Melbourne 3 nights
Auckland 1 night
Rotorua 3 nights
Auckland 1 night

If we were to cut out the 5 nights in New Zealand, where should we allocate that time? Should we be cutting it out?

In terms of accommodations, since it is our honeymoon we want to stay in luxury places and we need a bit of help.

For our time near the Great Barrier Reef, are there any recommendations? Places we are considering are Qualia and Reef House. I have seen mixed reviews of Reef House, including some old reviews on this site. We want to stay somewhere really special. Are there other places we should be considering?

We are planning on spending a few nights near Adelaide, as visiting wineries is a priority. Any recommendations there? Someone else on this forum had suggested wineries near Melbourne. Should we skip Adelaide and do that instead?

Are there any fabulous accommodations in any of our other destinations that we should be considering (except Sydney and Melbourne -- we are all set there).
