Luxury Honeymoon: From Tasmania along the east coast of Australia over Sydney into the rainforest, through the Outback to South Australia.
To be able to be so short when describing this spectacular trip is especially hard for me. This was definitely one of the most incredible and breathtaking trips of my life and I will try to pull myself together and only tell you about the most important moments.
Extensive articles about each city and their hotels will follow soon. But first, I want you to get excited for this beautiful country and yes! It is definitely worth the long trip!
Above the clouds
Dusseldorf – Dubai approx. 6h
We intentionally did not choose a long layover in Dubai. You can easily spend a couple of hours at the airport and its Emirates Lounge
Dubai – Sydney with A380 approx. 13h
We slept well and the flight felt shorter than expected.
Important: At the first international airport you arrive to, you have to be aware you’re entering their country. This means, even if you´re traveling onward to another country or destination, you´ll still have to get your luggage and get it through customs.
After entering in Sydney we continued to Tasmania.
Sydney – Hobart approx. 1,5 h
Here we are! Let’s start the Luxury Honeymoon!
