Whether you’re a resident of the Sunshine Coast or on a romantic getaway and intend on popping the question whilst visiting, then this list is for you! We have done our research and curated a list of proposal destinations on the Sunshine Coast where your partner is sure to say “yes”.

  1. Kondalilla Falls

During the summer wet season, Kondalilla National Park features one of the region's most beautiful waterfalls. From the top, Skene Creek drops 90m into the lush rainforest valley below. There are walking tracks that lead to this breathtaking waterfall, with rock pools, lookouts and smaller waterfalls to enjoy along the way. Kondalilla Falls is the perfect backdrop for you to pop the question, it will not only be memorable but will allow for the most beautiful photos that you can enjoy for years to come.

2.    Mooloolaba Kayak Hire

If you and your partner are the active type, then maybe this option is for you. Sun Reef located on the Mooloolaba Wharf is a great option for Kayak hire and at a great price. The staff will help you drop your kayak into the canals where you and your (almost) fiance can go for a paddle together and enjoy the scenery. The water is tranquil and the backdrop is perfect for a proposal. Once your partner has agreed to spend the rest of their life with you, there are plenty of options on the Wharf  for a celebratory beverage and bite to eat.

3.    Gerrard’s Lookout

From this stunning location you can see all of the Sunshine Coast and its unbelievable beauty. It offers sweeping views of the Glasshouse Mountains and would be ideal as a sunrise or sunset proposal. Grab a picnic rug, some cheese, wine and don’t forget that little ring box and a camera to capture this special moment. This is the most perfect and romantic location for you to pop the question.

4.    Spirit House

This restaurant is located in the gorgeous inland suburb of Yandina on the Sunshine Coast. It is an award winning restaurant set in lush and tropical gardens that surround a tranquil pond with bubbling waterfalls, tinkling wind chimes, sounds of nature and mood lighting for days. It is truly one of the most romantic locations in Australia with a beautiful ambiance. It offers contemporary Asian food, professional and friendly staff and enthusiastic chefs who nail it each and every time. There’s a romantic new bar where you can enjoy a cocktail prior to your seating. It won’t take too much convincing if you pop the question here.

5.    Mount Tinbeerwah

This is the perfect option for a mountain top view without the pesky climbing! Just out of Tewantin you can drive to the base of this mountain and enjoy the gentle walk to the top where the view will take your breath away. Your partner will be blown away by this spectacular view and will of course say yes, a million times yes, when you get down on one knee here! Nothing compares with being swept off your feet at the top of a mountain with breathtaking views as a backdrop.
