Couples can take part in something truly unique while honeymooning in Broome - a camel ride on Cable Beach.

Home to one of the world's last true wildernesses, Australia's northwest will appeal to newlyweds looking for an adventure.

The gateway to this stunning region, Broome, is located on the seaside and offers couples the chance to explore the "pearl of the north" by visiting a local pearl farm and learning how these coveted treasures are cultured, and hearing all the romantic tales of old-time pearl luggers!

Couples can strike out from Broome into the red-earth outback by four wheel drive - an original Aussie adventure - or book a scenic flight to better admire the strange and wonderful rock formations and marvellous waterfalls.

Don't miss the National and World Heritage List Purnululu National Park featuring the Bungle Bungle Range, whose curious beehive domes have been evolving for more than 350 million years. Similarly, the extraordinary Karijini National Park has been developing for two billion years, and offers couples the chance to hike through ancient gorges.

Then there's the spectacular Lake Argyle, an inland sea that holds a mind-boggling 32 million cubic metres of water - more than 20 times the size of Sydney Harbour!

Following a day full of activity, couples can find a secluded spot along the 22 km of white sand and azure waters that characterise the gorgeous Cable Beach. The Indian Ocean sunsets, witnessed from your spot on the soft sand - will be one of the most memorable parts of your honeymoon.

If you're in the region from March to October, don't miss the Staircase to the Moon, an incredible optical illusion made by the very low tide on the ocean's mudflats and the light from the full moon rising.

A dynamic, colourful city, Perth gives couples an absolutely original Western Australian adventure. Australia's sunniest capital boasts a diverse balance between culture and nature, with outstanding beaches, night-life and art festivals.

The relaxed atmosphere will appeal to couples looking to unwind, and the 400 hectares of Kings Park are a great place to do so with a picnic. Nearby Rottnest Island offers newlyweds interested in snorkeling a great spot to see a variety of tropical fish.

If you both are interested in touring some world-class wineries, Margaret River is the place to do it. The beautiful landscape also offers newlyweds the chance to enjoy a long walk on the beach, horse riding through the bush, hiking the tall-timber forests and exploring ancient caves.

Here are a few resorts to consider when planning your perfect honeymoon to Western Australia.

Located in an untouched piece of bushland in the Margaret River, Hidden Valley Forest Retreat offers couples high-class, innovatively designed and self-contained accommodation. In summer, you can unwind on your private deck or enjoy a massage under the trees. In winter, cosy up in front of your log fire with a glass of wine, or enjoy your outdoor, private spa.

The luxurious ambiance, paired with the high standard of customer service, will make you and your loved one feel truly indulged and restored.

With locations in Cable Beach, Broome and Kimberley Grande, Pinctada Hotels and Resorts has something to accommodate every taste. In Cable Beach, couples can experience a resort that was designed to provide for their every need. There are luxury studios, suites and villas which supply serenity and understated elegance.
