Queensland in the north east of the Australian continent is one of the most popular
tourist locations in Australia. Almost stretching the entire coast is the 2.000 km long
Great Barrier Reef which is the largest coral formation on earth. The unique underwater
natural wonder with its innumerable fish and coral types in the warm water can also be
discovered by amateur divers by a test dive at one of many dive centres. Palm Cove is an
ideal place to discover the Great Barrier Reef.
There are 25 holiday islands between the main land and the reef - each one is another
dream island with inviting beaches ideal for swimming and relaxing. Tourists can visit
the tropical rain forests in the main land.
On the world atlas New Zealand often appears as if appended to Australia, whilst in reality it is
1.600 km south-east of its neighbour country. Most of New Zealand is divided
between two main islands. Bays and fjords provide a varied coastline and many
idyllic natural harbours. Thanks to its volcanoes and mountain ranges the inland is
an Eldorado for hiking enthusiasts.
The landscape of the northern island is marked by the volcano Ruapehu and the Mount Taranaki.
The high dunes of the Ninety Mile Beach and the east coast with plenty of bays and hundreds
of small islands are only some of the natural beauties of the frost free north. However,
it can get cold during night times throughout all seasons, so a warm pullover definately
belongs in the luggage.
The 35 km wide Cook Strait seperates the south island from the densely
populated north island. The Mount Cook in the Mount Cook National Park with its peak of
3754 m is the highest of the New Zealand Alps. Glaciers cover 40% of
the park area, the most famous being the 27 km long Tasman Glacier.
The Last Heaven on Earth is how the Cook Islands are described in their
advertising. And indeed both the beauty of the islands and the Polynesian lifestyle
have been preserved to this very day. Some 15.000 people live on the main island
of Rarotonga, a place whose stunning landscapes make it idyllically perfect for
both an unforgettable wedding and an utterly captivating honeymoon.
Hawaii is still a dream but also grown to a metropolis with many positive changes. A
variety of offers from modern city life to relaxing palm beaches makes these islands unique.
Our different wedding arrangements give you a choice of both.
Hawaii can be visited all year round as seasonal changes are not important.
Oahu is an island of contrasts. In the south there are Honolulu's crowded city-centres
and Waikiki's hotel-skyscrapers, in the north rocky coasts and beaches with banana
and sugar-cane plantations in the background, or natural rainforests in the mountain
regions. The white, sandy beaches, the secluded inlets and the imposing cliffs that
divide the sections of the beaches make the island a very desirable honeymoon
Off all Hawaiian islands, Maui is said to offer the richest diversity. It became famous
mainly because of the legendary sunset above the Haleakala crater, which captivates
even the less romantic, and because of the Pacific that surges here towards the coast
and made the island a surfer's Mecca. Numerous opportunities on land, rugged mountains
from which roaring waterfalls tumble into the valleys and Lahaina, the former capital
of the Hawaiian kingdom, are an alternative if water sports are not your thing.
New arrivals barely have the chance to leave the aeroplane before the first friendly
"Bula!" booms out in their direction. "Bula!" - "Hello, how are you?" is a magical
word on the Fiji Islands. Indeed, there is no better expression of the islander's
warm and welcoming nature. With a cheery "Bula!", even complete strangers can win
an answering smile from any islander.
What distinguishes Fiji from many South Sea ilses is the unspoiled jungle that covers
65 per cent of the island. For anyone who is just as keen to explore the interior of
the island as the beaches, there are mountain hikes, boat rides, horseback trekking,
rafting and much more to enjoy.
