Imagine having an entire island all to yourselves for your honeymoon, with not a soul to be seen, and nobody else but you and your beloved! For the ultimate in private and romantic honeymoon getaways, these Australian islands can be hired exclusively – and they don’t have the ten thousand dollar price tag you’re thinking! All allow you to have an entire island just for yourselves if you so choose – guaranteeing serenity, seclusion and plenty of space.

1. Satellite Island

With dramatic scenery, Satellite Island is a magical hideaway found on the South Eastern Coast of the Apple Isle. It is utterly unspoilt – with rugged cliffs falling away to sparkling waters, the immense beauty of the Tasmanian wilderness is unforgettable. Full of things to experience, such as shucking wild oysters, a sunset bonfire at the peak of the island, fishing, diving swimming, and nature walks, the rest of the world will fall from memory on your own piece of paradise. Image by Adam Gibson and Satellite Island

2. Pumpkin Island

A little jewel surrounded by Queensland’s aquamarine waters and abundant wildlife, Pumpkin Island offers a multitude of activities. Head out dolphin and turtle spotting, explore the sea in a glass bottomed kayak, spend the day snorkelling, go oyster harvesting, hire your own private chef… or simply do nothing at all! Eco friendly self-catered units powered by wind and sun, and all with a private deck, ensure a comfortable stay in this magnificent location which you can have all to yourselves. Image by Adam Gormley

3. Wilson Island

A gorgeous secluded coral island with sandy white beaches, crystal clear water and swaying palm trees, Wilson Island is both a part of the Great Barrier Reef and surrounded by it. Accessible from Queensland’s Heron Island, you can snorkel the stunning waters, discover stunning reef and beach walks, and escape modern-day life on this tiny island. With pristine white sands, reefs, turtle and bird breeding grounds and safari-style accommodation, it really is a peaceful immersion into nature for the two of you. Image by Kellie Blinco

4. Three Hummock Island

If you’re looking to start your honeymoon afresh, look no further than the place with the cleanest air in the world – North Western Tasmania. A magical secluded paradise surrounded by granite coastlines and rolling surf, Three Hummock Island has breathtaking scenery every way you look. With plenty of flora and fauna to take in, it is a wilderness treasure trove. Even penguins can be spotted making their way back up to their nests each night, a sight sure to instil that loved-up feeling. Image by Andrew Strikis

5. Marble Island

For a secret retreat with a rustic feel, Marble Island is the ideal secluded haven to explore and relax in. With an on-island manager on hand to help you organise any activities you wish, you can spend romantic nights star gazing or beach fishing, spend days together exploring the rock pools or guided nature walks, and spend evenings snuggled around a bonfire or clinking glasses at any of the numerous private beaches of this Queensland gem. Image via Marble Island

6. Haggerstone Island

This award-winning island is in the remote regions of Far North Queensland, and encompasses the true feeling of a remote tropical island. With the island full of jungles and waterfalls, opening out onto a lagoon and beyond that the reef, it feels untouched by man. There is an orchard garden that supplies fresh produce. The rates are unbelievably all-inclusive – all meals, non-alcoholic beverages, and activities such as fishing, boat outings, and snorkelling are included. Haggerstone Island is truly a unique location to live the islander life, if only for a short while. Image by Natalie Turner
