Austravel says

If you don’t fancy being strapped to a sun lounger for two weeks on your honeymoon, an extended break visiting several must-see destinations could be just the thing. Round the world flights offer unbeatable flexibility and are more affordable than you might think.

  • Bespoke itineraries
  • Expert advice
  • Great value

So, where to start? Australia is a must do destination for any round the world itinerary – tag on a stopover in the Far East en route plus a Pacific Island on the way home and before you know it, you’ve already got a dream honeymoon.

To give you an idea of what we offer, we can arrange an 18-night honeymoon itinerary, starting in vibrant and cosmopolitan Hong Kong, staying at the ultra modern and luxurious Mira Hong Kong. With a stunning spa and rooftop terrace, this is an ideal haven after a day of shopping and sightseeing.

Next stop, Sydney. Enjoy the city’s best location staying at the Shangri-La, with uninterrupted views of the iconic harbour and Opera House. After a short flight, you could head off to Queensland for some down time in the coastal resorts and islands of the Great Barrier Reef.

Finish your round the world honeymoon with a few days in New Zealand followed by a short stay discovering the beauty of the Cook Islands.

If you have more time to spare, check out this month-long Australasia Encompassed trip for the ultimate wow factor.
