It's the island of choice for A-list celebrities but you don't need to be a star to escape to this romantic hideaway in the Family Group of Islands off the North Queensland coast. Far from the maddening crowds, your villa is one of just 16 hidden in the lush, age-old rainforest.

Villas are split-level with lush foliage framing a view of the sapphire sea. The two premium villas with expansive views over Wedgerock Bay meanwhile offer private plunge pool, wooden floors, daybed, plasma TVs and hammock for lazy afternoon siestas.

Explore the island's secluded bays and deserted beaches together at your own pace. Bedarra claims to have more beaches than guests, so privacy is assured. You can visit neighbouring islands, go deep sea fishing or diving, but goodness why would you?

My bet is you'll get no further than one of the tempting day beds with a cold glass of wine in one hand, and the book you've been meaning to read forever lying unopened in the other.

While it's not cheap, everything is included in the tariff so honeymooners can help themselves to a bottle of Bollinger whenever they fancy from the 24/7 bar. Want to grab a bottle of Chapel Hill pinot grigio to toast the sunset or a couple of Miami Mojitos? No problem.

Not surprisingly, many couples choose to tie the knot on the island. You can hold your ceremony on the terrace of the restaurant or perhaps on the jetty looking out towards the east of Bedarra and Dunk Islands as you exchange vows. My pick would be the beach at Wedgerock Bay (commonly referred to as Back Beach) underneath a large Ficus trees overlooking the white sand beach with heavenly views over The Twins and Hinchinbrook Islands.
