Melbourne’s Top 10 Proposal Locations

Q Report Team
Updated on January 31, 2024
5 min read

Melbourne is an incredible city that offers an array of proposal locations. From sky-high romance to the boardwalk, we promise you’ll get that ‘Yes!’ from this hit list.

So if it’s a ‘Yes!’ you’re after, check out our list of Melbourne’s top 10 proposal locations. With this proposal cheat sheet, you’ll be walking down the aisle in no time.


Talk of the Town: Melbourne’s Top 10 Proposal Locations


1. Hide and Seek: Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens

Bring a picnic and that sparkling diamond engagement ring and get lost together in the visually stunning hedge maze at the Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens. With the hedge standing over 3 metres high and 2 metres wide, it is the perfect intimate proposal.

Consider heading into the hedge separately, going to one of the four mosaic flags hidden within the maze. Give them the challenge of making their way through hundreds of metres of winding paths until they find you, patiently waiting, ring in hand at one of Melbourne's top 10 proposal locations.

2. Sky High Romance: Melbourne Sky Deck

Take your proposal to another level and fill it with sky-high romance at the Melbourne Sky Deck. A sunset proposal at the very top of one of Melbourne's top 10 proposal locations will indeed sweep them off their feet as they shout, ‘Yes!’, feeling on top of the world and in love.

The Melbourne Sky Deck is 285m above Melbourne, enveloped in 360˚ of sunset views. Oh, and after you’ve popped the question, don’t forget to celebrate with champagne from Bar 88––the highest bar in Melbourne.

3. St Kilda Boardwalk 

The palm-lined boardwalk of St Kilda is the perfect location for a seaside proposal. Once they say ‘Yes!’ they’ll soon be singing the old drifters tune, ‘Under the boardwalk we’ll be fallin’ in love’ as they take in not only their stunning engagement ring but the expansive view of Port Phillip.

4. Love is in the Air: Hot Air Balloon

Hot air ballooning through the Melbourne sky, and yes, it may be in the ‘sky’ and not at a specific location, but given that it’s simply a breathtaking way to propose, it makes our list as one of Melbourne's top 10 proposal locations.

After you romance you’re way across the sky in a private balloon, consider continuing your once-in-a-lifetime romantic experience with a champagne breakfast on Level 35 of the Sofitel Hotel. With 180˚ views of Melbourne, there is no better way to finish off a perfect proposal.



5. Half Moon Bay Beach

The rugged beauty of Half Moon Bay will undoubtedly inspire your proposal. Located in the southeast of Melbourne, in the suburb of Black Rock, it’s a beach well deserving of a spot on our list of Melbourne's top 10 proposal locations.

Proposal Tip: As you prepare to propose, the bay is protected from the north wind making it an ideal place to set up a picnic to accompany this special event. You might even want to take a dip in the ocean, just don’t forget to consider insuring that engagement ring!

If sand is not your thing, but you’d still love to have the sound of the ocean as your backdrop for asking that all-important question, a more formal affair is available at the Cerberus Beach House restaurant. Located above the kiosk, it has delicious fresh seafood and the best sea views in Melbourne.

6. Dining as Fine as the Ring: Vui de Monde

Vui de Monde is located on the 55th floor of Melbourne’s iconic Rialto building and reflects classic French style. With breathtaking views capturing the city of Melbourne, it’s bound to sweep them off their feet, and that’s before you get down on one knee.



7. Sunset on the Water

Have you ever thought of proposing while on a kayak? Now that we’ve brought it to your attention, what better way to propose than on water that mirrors the sky?

Kayak Melbourne offers a spectacular way to propose–gliding by the sights of Melbourne along the Yarra River in a fibreglass Sea Bear sea kayak. Imagine pausing en route, stopping at the perfect spot chosen by you. This is your unique moment to pop that question you’ve been waiting to ask.



8. Royal Botanic Gardens: Proposal at the Lake

The Ornamental Lake is a perfect spot to propose, serenely located within Melbourne’s exquisite Royal Botanic Gardens. Be surrounded by one of the world’s finest gardens as you take a moment to propose to the love of your life.

9. Eau de Vie

From the moment you walk in, you know you’ve arrived. Eau de Vie, located in Melbourne’s CBD, is a plush cocktail bar renowned for its upscale ambience and expansive collection of spirits. If it’s a proposal with class, staged inside one of their intimate and private booths, you’re after. Then this is where you’ll be celebrating––blissfully in love under cocktails served with plumes of liquid nitrogen.

10. A Little Bit of Everything

Can’t decide? Then a scavenger hunt around Melbourne could be the one for you, especially if your partner loves an adventure. Start at your favourite spot in the city and leave clues for them to follow. You could even end the scavenger hunt at one of Melbourne's top 10 proposal locations. Ready? Your proposal awaits.
