The warm climate and protected landscape allows for take off all year round and makes for a very calm ride through the skies. Arrange your departure for sunrise and catch the slowly rising sun as it exposes the natural beauty of the highlands. We can’t think of a better perfect proposal opportunity.
Daintree national park
The Daintree region, famous for its ancient rainforest and palm-fringed beaches, is one of the most magical areas in tropical north Queensland. We highly recommend taking your time to explore all this region has to offer. Cape tribulation is a truly spectacular site where the rainforest meets the reef. This is one of the few places where two world heritage sites are found side by side. The Daintree is also the ultimate picnic destination. Ask your accommodation to prepare you a gourmet hamper filled with some of the delicious food from the region and venture into nature with your significant other.
Noosa’s subtropical climate and stunning bush fringed beaches make it the perfect place to soak up the romance with your special someone. Spend the morning relaxing at main beach or sampling the region’s fresh produce at the famous Noosa farmers markets. For a truly memorable proposal we recommend heading into Noosa National Park. Here, you can check out some of the most beautiful coastal walks on the sunshine coast. This park hosts an abundance of picturesque spots to pop the questions from the sweeping panoramic views at Dolphin Point to the turquoise waters at TeaTree Bay.
