More couples are choosing to honeymoon at Australian resorts, like the Oaks Cypress Lakes Resort

When it comes to honeymoons, visiting an exotic destination has traditionally been a favourite with couples. Creating a new trend, more and more newlyweds are breaking the mould and are swapping these (often extravagant) trips for honeymoons a little closer to home.

Dubbed the 'minimoon', this new honeymoon trend usually involves a quick, post-wedding getaway that spans only a few days. Noticing the rise in these types of honeymoons, Oaks Hotels & Resorts understands the appeal. “Moving into the peak-wedding season of the year, we have seen an increase in honeymooners choosing to stay with us for several days mid-week or over a weekend to unwind together following their busy wedding festivities,” says Director of Marketing & Brand Loyalty at Minor Hotel Meira Klein. Our properties in desirable leisure destinations like Port Douglas, the Sunshine Coast, Queenstown, Melbourne and the Hunter Valley are proving particularly popular for the ‘minimoon’ movement due to their myriad romantic drawcards.”
