One week honeymoon in Australia

Hi! Fiancé and I are considering a one week honeymoon in the South Pacific in May. Australia caught our eye as we are both divers, fairly active people (enjoy hiking, swimming, water sports), love nature/the outdoors, and have never been there. We would happily enjoy some beach time but as we are coming from Guam (where we are getting married), we don't need that to be the main focus. Since we live in New York, we don't want to spend a ton of the time in metropolitan areas. We know a week will just give us a small taste of Australia but we'd like to make the most of the time we have off. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

Read the post properly Gurus, the OP asked about Australian foods, not Melbourne foods. If he wanted good food in Melbourne this is not the stuff I would be directing him to

<Macadamias were found in the US long before here :(>

Don't know where you got that info from guru because macadamias are indeginous to Australia. They were introduced to Hawaii in the late 1800's after a sugar plantation owner visited Australia and decided he liked the look of them :)

@ GurusW

"Macadamias were found in the US long before here :("

Really? Here's a little light reading for you - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macadamia

"do the red centre aka Uluru and get an indigenous fix"

Clearly being a DE for an area doesn't require any cultural sensitivity!

^ Yes, Hawaii is the biggest exporter of macadamias in the world, largely because they figured out how to get the buggers open! They are a quintessential Aussie food though, so the original suggestion of them is correct.
