The husband of a 29-year-old Sydney woman who died in a tragic golf buggy accident on their honeymoon has poured his heart out in a social media tribute to his lost love.

On June 20, the Sydney woman was riding in a golf cart with her husband on Hamilton Island in Queensland when it overturned near a lookout.

Marina Morgan was later identified as the woman who died at the scene as a result from her injuries.

Over the weekend, Ms Morgan's husband Robbie Morgan shared a touching tribute to his late wife on Facebook.

"My heart is broken and my world shattered with the tragic loss of the most beautiful girl in the world.. my angel.. my saint.. my wife Marina Hanna," he wrote.

"I will love you forever and ever and EVER! My rock, my partner, my confidant, my angel, my saint, my everything! The world will never be the same…"

The post was inundated with support from Mr Morgan's loved ones, expressing their grief and passing on their condolences.

The couple had married in Sydney just days before the accident on Hamilton Island.

Following the crash, QAS Acting Director Mackay District Ambulance Graeme McIntyre said an on-duty paramedic was on the scene within minutes.

The paramedic was assisted by others in an attempt to resuscitate Ms Morgan, the Courier Mail reported.

“(She) was in cardiac arrest and along with a number of first aiders on the island – an off-duty dentist, off-duty fire officer, and doctor from the island – (they) performed resuscitation for 35 minutes without success,” he said.

On Hamilton Island, golf buggies are the main form of transport.

A statement from the island to the Courier Mail explained all buggies on the island are "equipped with appropriate safety equipment including seatbelts and rules for operation".
