Glass gondolas to screaming drops, unique ways to propose
Top Places to Propose in Queensland

Men and women alike may go weak at the knees at the thought of a marriage proposal (sometimes for very different reasons). Generally it's a rare occurrence, a special moment, an interlude that holds memories for ever and a turning point in life.

You want to get it right. Whilst some lovely proposals have happened watching the footy on TV, others may want to put in a bit of different thoughts and step into something a bit more unique.

You've found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you've made the decision, you have the ring. Now all you need is the location.

Here's a few suggestions to make your moment even more memorable.

Overnight Yacht Cruise

Who doesn't dream of sailing away into the night. Maybe it's only for one night, but it will certainly be memorable sailing away on a sunset cruise. There you are sipping champagne and the timing is perfect, give the captain a nudge and a flag raises saying "Marry Me". You slide the ring out and gaze into your sweetheart's eyes. It will surely be an evening to remember. You may plan a lovely dinner or make it even more special with an overnight stay on the luxurious yacht.

A real location with a heart
If you're looking for a truly iconic starter, there is one location is sure to set anyone's heart on fire.

what about your own beach picnic on a near private beach

Looking for someone private and a little relaxed, perhaps you may like to consider a beach picnic.

Many people may not have heard of oak beach, however it is a perfect rainforest meets the reef location.

With beautiful views of the Tropical North Queensland coast, you will find yourself surrounded by serenity.

If you wish to make it even more special, perhaps a stay at the delightful and luxurious Thala Beach Lodge. You will almost have a private beach to yourself and the lodge can assist you to organise picnic hampers and wine being brought to you at the desired timing of your big moment.

For those looking for fun and to take your breath away

We hope your married life doesn't turn into a roller-coaster, but perhaps it may be fun to start there.

Not exactly traditional, but if fun is more your style, perhaps you may like to pop the question on the world's tallest freefall ride at Dreamworld.

On the Giant Drop - at 119m high, you can ascent and whilst waiting for the brief 15-second pause you should have just enough time to pop the question. Your loved one then has just a few seconds to scream yeeeeeessssss.

You can even say it was on top of Australia and some part of it is sure to take their breath away.

Where: Dreamworld, Gold Coast, Queensland

Over a sea of green trees

Above the rainforest

Imagine slowly sailing over over a World Heritage-listed rainforest in a glass cable car. You'll feel like Cinderella on the way to the ball.

Suspended over a green canopy on the journey to Kuranda, it could be the perfect spot for a proposal.

If you ask for the assistance of the Skyrail operators privately and well prior, they will be able to assist you and ensure you obtain a private gondola for your special question.

Where: Skyrail Rainforest Cableway, Cairns, Queensland
Beautiful rainforest canopies and fabulous views - but perhaps you won't be able to take your eyes off each other

High above a bridge

On top of the Story Bridge

It is a long known proposals at the very top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, however Story Bridge Adventure Climb now takes it to a new level. As loose items are not allowed while climbing and proposals are still popular, the company has now created a well-hidden "engagement ring device", which lets climbers pop the question complete with a ring at the bridge summit.
