Fraser Is one of state’s top honeymoon spots

FRASER Island has been named in the top 16 places to have a honeymoon in Queensland.

The list was produced by the official travel blog of Queensland, which praised the natural tranquillity of Kingfisher Bay Resort and Fraser Island.

Celeste Mitchell wrote the blog, saying that a honeymoon in Queensland was a "kind of a no-brainer", with plenty of beautiful options to choose from.

Fraser Island was listed at number eight on the blog, with the post saying there was plenty of romance to be found.

"There's also the requisite day spa for couples massages, kayaks, sunset champagne at the Jetty Hut, and kilometres of white sand for as many long romantic walks as you can handle," she wrote.

Many other island getaways were mentioned on the blog, including Bedarra Island off Mission Beach, Orpheus Island and Lizard Island off Townsville, the Whitsundays and Hamilton Island.

The Daintree rainforest was also mentioned as a top option, as well as eco-tourism options, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast.
