An emergency medical flight to New Zealand came too late for Australian nurse Kelly Clarke, who died after contracting a mystery illness while on her honeymoon in Fiji.

Her husband says it was a "horrible situation" that should never have happened.

Sydney woman Kelly Clarke, 24, fell ill on Wednesday and was taken to hospital.

"She needs a medivac ASAP as Fiji don't have the medications she needs", Tam Brown wrote but Ms Clarke died before the medivac crew arrived.

The family are asking people to contribute to the fundraiser for Kelly Clarke, with the money raised set to go towards bringing her body home and her funeral costs.

"We are so shocked", Murray Shaw wrote.

'You (were a) handsome girl and fantastic sister you will be deeply missed, ' he wrote.

Kelly's parents have flown to Fiji to make arrangements for her body and support her devastated husband Chase.

"I just love you and wish you were here", Mr Clarke said.

Mr Clarke said he was back at the hotel collecting the couple's belongings when doctors placed her in the coma, and spoke to her on the phone just before.

"It shouldn't be on my finger", Mr Clarke said. "It's just getting the notice out there because this not going to be easy when we get home".
