Unlike typical preweddings that take place in metropolitan areas (e.g., Prague, Venice, Paris), adventurous elopements and intimate weddings take advantage of the great outdoors where the elements; sunshine, rain, wind – all add to the memories of the day. After all, part of the adventure comes from the unknown.

Australia is famous for its natural wonders and wide open spaces, its beaches, deserts, and ‘the bush’.

Here are our favourite recommendations for your elopement adventure. There are no better places to escape the hustle and bustle of the city than these.
