The Perfect Australian Location For A Festive Season Proposal

If you’re heading away during Christmas, there couldn’t be a more perfect time to pop the question. Take some time away from the family traditions and escape to ask one of life’s most important questions.

Whether you’re heading north to Darwin or south to Adelaide, we’ve put together our top holiday proposal destinations.


Victoria has so many options for the perfect proposal - but we fancy a trip in the car. 

Begin the journey on the Great Ocean Road surrounded by picturesque townships, boasting marvellous views of the Southern Ocean. Hire a convertible and escape the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. Find a romantic backdrop through the scenic Victorian coastline and pop the question.

South Australia

From the Barossa Valley, to the Flinders Ranges, there are numerous locations for the perfect proposal in South Australia. No matter what corner of the state you’re in this festive season, the options are endless. If you’ve got family plans, make some time to explore the state’s best-kept secrets all a short drive away.

Head for the wineries, book a table at their restaurants, and spoil the love of your life. Both of you will be sure to enjoy spectacular views, quality food and produce, right before asking for their hand in marriage. The Adelaide Hills are home to the world’s best wine accompanied with views to die for.

If you’re closer to the city, visit the Adelaide Oval and book a roof climb. Watch as the sun sets over the cityscape, making it the perfect location for a romantic proposal.

Heading to Sydney? Known for iconic sights like the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge, there’s no city that would leave an impression on your partner quite like Sydney.

If you’re looking for something more unique, head a little further from the city centre. Take some time to explore the beautiful wine regions, beaches and mountains. The Hunter Valley is a magnificent corner of the state, boasting some of Australia’s premier wine destinations. Why not pop the question over a divine glass of Hunter Valley Shiraz?
