27 Feb 2024

You've met the love of your life and found the perfect ring; now, the quest for the ultimate proposal location begins. With its breathtaking scenery and unique experiences, the Gold Coast offers an array of stunning spots, whether you’re looking for the wow-factor, a sentimental spot or somewhere beautiful in nature. If you need a hand planning your special moment, choose from a variety of proposal packages designed to ensure everything goes off without a hitch. 

1. Base Of Purling Brook Falls  

For our nature lovers, hike down to the base of Purling Brook Falls. While your significant other marvels at the beauty of the falls, get down on one knee. Consider bringing a friend to capture the moment on camera, as this location will make for some epic photos. 

2. Skydiving

Take the ultimate plunge with a thrilling skydive proposal with Gold Coast Skydive. You’ll land first next to the huge “will you marry me?” sign on the beach, ready to pop the question when your partner lands behind you. Check out their proposal package here.

3. Sailing In Paradise  

Can you imagine anything more romantic asking your love to be together forever on your own private yacht as the sun sets over the mountains in the distance? Sailing in Paradise will make this dream a reality. When the time is right, unfurl the customised ‘Will You Marry Me’ sail for the real wow factor. Check out their proposal package here.

4. On A Gondola Ride

You don’t need to travel to Venice for a romantic Gondola Ride. Gold Coast Gondolas can take you and your loved one for a romantic dinner cruise around the Gold Coast Broadwater. They even offer a special ‘Grand Proposal’ package that includes a ‘Will you marry me’ sign, champagne, chocolate, rose petals and a red carpet. 

5. In A Hot Air Balloon 

Soar high above with Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast, and when you’re surrounded by nothing but endless skies and breathtaking sunrise views, ask that all-important question. Once you land, head to O’Reilly’s Vineyard for a gourmet breakfast to celebrate. Check out their proposal package here.    

6. Top of SkyPoint Climb 

SkyPoint Observation Deck

For a proposal with epic views, pop the question at the top of SkyPoint Climb, 270m above sea level. The panoramic vista won’t be the focal point though because with a proposal like this, we promise they’ll only have eyes for you. Afterwards, head down to the Observation Deck for a celebratory drink. Heads up, you’ll just need to let the team know your plans in advance as you usually can’t carry loose items up.   

7. Top of Morans Falls 

Surrounded by the tranquillity of nature, this unique and intimate backdrop makes for a very romantic spot. Hike 2.2km through a subtropical rainforest to reach the top of the falls. Planning this for sunset earns bonus points, as the views are truly spectacular.  

8. Lady Elliot Island 

Located at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef and only a scenic 2-hour flight from the Gold Coast, Lady Elliot Island is a marine lover’s dream. Go for the day or stay overnight and experience snorkelling, diving, reef walking, kayaking and touring on the glass bottom boat tour. Organise with the team to propose during one of these amazing experiences or simply find the perfect spot on the beach.   

9. On the Beach

If you’re looking for a simpler and more relaxed proposal, head down to one of our beautiful beaches. Plan a romantic picnic and, just as the sun starts to set, get down on one knee. Don’t forget the champagne to pop after they say yes! Some of our favourite beaches for a proposal include Greenmount, Kirra, Rainbow Bay, Echo Beach, and The Spit.  

10. At A Winery  

You’ve already had a wine tasting and now you’re strolling through a picturesue Gold Coast vineyard hand in hand - how romantic! Witches Falls, Cedar Creek Estate, O’Reilly’s Valley Vineyards, Mount Nathan Winery and Sarabah Estate Vineyard are just some of our many wineries that would make for the perfect proposal location.  

11. On A Helicopter Ride  

Go big with a heli tour proposal. Take the love of your life on the ride of their life across the Gold Coast, landing at a remote beach on South Stradbroke Island where five metre high letters spell out ‘Marry Me’ in the sand. Who could say no?! Check out their proposal package here.  

12. At A Theme Park 

Plan a fun-filled day at one of our many theme parks such as Movie World or Dreamworld. Hold up a sign to be captured by the cameras while on a rollercoaster, get the help of one of their favourite characters like Superman, or propose in front of their favourite ride.
