Brisbane’s Top 10 Proposal Locations

Q Report Team
Updated on March 19, 2024
4 min read

Your heart’s all a-flutter and it’s hard to sit still. So you’ve decided to propose.

Congratulations! Since you’re at the point where you’re Googling the “best places to propose in Brisbane,” we’re guessing you’ve already put considerable thought into the occasion. And that’s good. Because from here on out, you’ll be at a dinner or family gathering, and someone will say, “Tell us how you got engaged.”

There will be stories to tell and anniversaries to celebrate. Your proposal location will go down in your family’s lore. Will one of these Brisbane proposal locations be the one?


In the City


1. Brisbane Riverwalk

The Riverwalk connects two of Brisbane’s most vibrant areas: up-and-coming New Farm and the Brisbane CBD. Hand-in-hand, you can stroll along through the carefully-kept urban surroundings, stopping to admire the rippling water below or admire the city lights. Just 870m long, you won’t get tired, and the walk will give you the perfect amount of time to pop the question. 


2. City Botanic Gardens

If you want to stay in the city but escape the concrete jungle, step into the lush and lovely City Botanic Gardens. Adjacent to the Goodwill Bridge, you’ll happen upon two magical fig trees decked out in a zillion fairy lights. Unless you can fly to Neverland, you won’t find a more enchanting place to unveil the much-anticipated engagement ring.


On the Water


3.  Brisbane River Night Tour

When you envision your proposal, do you imagine the two of you paddling past the dazzling lights along the riverside? When you rent a kayak from Kayak Fun, you can make this fantasy come true. As you paddle under the lights of Victoria Bridge, you can listen to the lapping of the water and the beating of your heart. This is a boat ride she’ll never forget. Just hold on tight to that ring!


4. Bribie Island Gondola Cruise

A Venetian gondola is the ultimate in romance, but Venice is awfully far away. Fortunately, you don’t have to travel to experience a heavenly evening on the water. Instead, book a night cruise along the scenic Pumicestone passage and canals of Bribie Island. If you’re lucky, a dolphin may even leap out of the water to toast your engagement. 


Over Dinner


5. Homage

Located in Spicers’ historic homestead, Homage overlooks a 12,000-acre working farm. Celebrated Chef Ash Martin pays homage to the local land by serving locally sourced, seasonal produce. How local is this food? Homage boasts an 89-bed garden, its own honey bees, and free-range, organically raised animals. If you book a Sunday lunch, you can enjoy live jazz music as you muster the courage to pop the question.


6. Restaurant Dan Arnold

It’s hard to find a restaurant anywhere in the world with reviews like Restaurant Dan Arnold. One TripAdvisor user said it’s “a sensory marvel of taste, smell and visual excellence.” Others describe the food as “next level” and “exquisite!” While working in France, Chef Dan Arnold represented Australia in the World finale of Bocuse d’Or in 2017 and finished in 8th position, the best ever result for Australia! So if you’re aiming for a world-class dining experience, look no further.


Above the City Lights


7. Story Bridge

Are you seeking ‘unforgettable’? Picture this. The two of you climb up Brisbane’s most iconic structure as the sun melts into the horizon. Then, as the city comes to life beneath you and the earth twinkles like the stars above, you ask the magic question. Your partner gazes out at the view, from the Glass House Mountains in the north to Moreton Bay in the east. Then, after a glimpse of the Scenic Rim Mountains in the south, she says, “Yes!” and you descend back to earth in the glow of the bridge’s incredible lighting system. Unforgettable indeed.


8. Mt Coot-tha Lookout

An engagement requires a new perspective on life. You’ll see the future through new lenses, as a team, instead of a singleton.

You can also get a new perspective on Brisbane’s skyline when you view it from the Mt Coot-tha Lookout. Set amongst impeccably manicured gardens, the lookout boasts arguably the best vista of the CBD and classic Brisbane landmarks. Time your visit with sunset, and you’ll have the pleasure of seeing that gorgeous engagement ring sparkle in the glow of the city’s lights.


Among the Vines


9. Ocean View Estates Winery & Restaurant

Situated just 45 minutes from Brisbane, the Ocean View Estates Winery & Restaurant provides a stylish escape from the city. After a tour of the leafy vineyard, you can take a breathtaking helicopter ride and then dine at the romantic restaurant. And if, after a successful proposal, you both fall in love with the location, you’re in luck. They host weddings, too!


10. Kooroomba Vineyard And Lavender Farm

If photographs of your proposal are essential, it’s challenging to find a lovelier location than a lavender farm. Nestled in the Fassifern Valley at Mt Alford, the Kooroomba Restaurant overlooks a six-hectare vineyard and captivating lavender fields. And the magnificent views of the Scenic Rim mountains provide the perfect backdrop.
