Queensland’s Top Proposal Ideas


When it comes to proposal ideas, here in Queensland we think you can do better than skywriting or dropping the knee atop Mount Coot-tha. Queensland is home to some of Australia’s most beautiful natural scenery and incredibly luxurious holiday retreats. Combine the two and you’ve got the perfect recipe for an unforgettable proposal in Queensland.


Here are six of the best proposal ideas in Queensland, from the Great Barrier Reef to the majestic outback.

Proposal Idea #1: Romantic degustation dinner by the edge of the Coral Sea


One of the biggest allures at Orpheus Island Lodge is the ultra-romantic Dining with the Tides experience. What better moment to ask your true love to marry you than during a private dinner on the island’s starlit pier overlooking the Coral Sea.


The dinner suits the moment perfectly, with a six-course degustation menu crafted by an expert culinary team. It’s paired with select wines from the lodge’s cellar, so you can sip on wine worthy of the occasion after they say, “I do.”

Proposal Idea #2. Propose from a waterfall


While staying on Orpheus Island, you’ll also have the opportunity to visit Australia’s largest national park island, Hinchinbrook Island. This unique experience includes a chartered boat, guided rainforest walk and crocodile spotting. It’s also home to one of our favourite proposal ideas.


While on Hinchinbrook Island, you’ll visit the famous Zoe Waterfall. Standing atop its natural infinity pool reveals panoramic vistas of the island’s rainforest, mountainous terrain and pristine bay. It’s one of the most beautiful spots for popping the question. Want a proposal tip? Arrange a Dining with the Tides dinner following the proposal to top off an amazing day!

Proposal Idea #3. Secluded rainforest picnic


Here’s a proposal idea for those seeking utter privacy. The Daintree Rainforest offers a number of secluded areas for a romantic picnic, including the majestic Mossman Gorge, Alexandra Lookout and Cow Bay.


If you’re staying at the Daintree Ecolodge, the lodge team can organise a gourmet picnic hamper filled with local delicacies. Just wait until you’re surrounded only by the ancient rainforest before asking those four little words.
