Shruti Khanna and Ravi Duggal, Australia
Shruti and Ravi’s ultimate honeymoon down under is sure to give you major #Honeymoongoals!
Shruti and Ravi’s honeymoon in Australia included trips to cosmopolitan Sydney, fun and romantic Gold Coast, and the extraordinary Great Barrier Reef.
How We Met
Ours was an office romance. We met at a multinational company where we worked together and slowly developed feelings for each other. After confessing our love, we decided to get married in Jodhpur and are now happily settled in Delhi.
We wanted to start the rest of our life doing things we both love. Australia is a great option if you are looking for the perfect combination of relaxation and fun post-nuptials. We visited Gold Coast, Cairns, Hamilton Island and Sydney during our two-week honeymoon.
We made the most out of our honeymoon by relaxing at our hotel, soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches and indulging in water sports. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Crowne Plaza hotel in the Gold Coast which is a surfer’s paradise! The Hamilton Island Reef View Hotel was spacious and offered breath-taking views of the sea. The Shangri-La hotel in Sydney and Rydges Plaza hotel in Cairns are both centrally located and combine luxury with comfort.
Gold Coast: Crowne Plaza
Hamilton Island: Hamilton Island Reef View Hotel

Best meal of the trip
White snapper cooked in wine at the Whitsunday cruise at Great Barrier Reef is phenomenal. We tasted the freshest and the most sumptuous fish dishes there.
Most romantic moment
We rented a car at Cairns and took one of Australia’s most scenic drives, the Great Ocean Road. The scenery was inspiring as the road twists and turns to reveal huge cliffs, roaring seas, tranquil coves, magnificent waterfalls and secluded beaches. We had memorable dinner at a local restaurant at Palm Cove Beach.
Your advice to other couples who are going to Australia.
Australia is a wonderful playground for honeymooners – large cities with incredible sights, miles and miles of exquisite coastline and beaches, and the great outback for adventure lovers. We customized the entire trip and went to the places that suited our interests. Therefore, it is always important to do some research before planning their honeymoon.
