If you’re planning to pop the question during your trip around Australia’s North West – or if you’re taking a trip to this picturesque location specifically for that purpose – and you’re trying to find just the right spot to propose, then we have you covered!
Here are our top ten picks of the most romantic locations in the area to pop the question, and what makes them so romantic and unique. The hardest thing for you to do now is to choose just one!
This Broome icon is a favourite for romance. With the endless white sand and incredible sunsets every evening, it’s easy to see why. For something extra special, book a helicopter flight to your own secluded part of the beach with canapes and wine.
Nearly one million hectares of gorges and waterfalls means that there is no shortage of private and romantic spots at El Questro. We recommend staying at the luxurious El Questro Homestead where the staff will arrange your own itinerary with private guide to find that perfect spot to pop the question.
Onboard a Kimberley cruise
You can’t get much more picturesque than the Kimberley coast line with the sea wind blowing in your hair on-board an intimate Kimberley cruise. The small boats and local crew mean that it’s easy to arrange a private sunset dinner on-board, picnic by a waterfall or romantic beach walk to slip away for a private moment. With so many incredible sights along the coast, there’s no shortage of locations to choose from to find the best moment.
Just an hour out of Broome, Eco Beach is your private stretch of beach where you can do as much or as little as you like. Glamp in their eco tents or sleep in a villa and wake up to ocean views every morning. For a couple that likes a laugh, book a mud and bubbles experience where you cover yourself in mangrove mud (known for its ability to remove toxins and refresh the skin), enjoy a glass of sparkling wine as it dries and wash yourself off in the ocean.
King George Falls
As remote as you can get, King George Falls is made up of two incredible falls that tower over the King George River. Nicole Kidman has credited the King George River as the reason that she and six other crew members fell pregnant after a refreshing swim! Get to the King George Falls on a Kimberley cruise or by staying at nearby Faraway Bay.
4WD or take a scenic flight just out of Broome and up the peninsula for a Kimberley glamping getaway. Start with Kooljaman at Cape Leveque, where the red Kimberley pindan meets white sand and sparkling blue seas. Relax in your eco tent set into the cliffs overlooking the bay, snorkel the reefs or join a guided tagalong tour. Next, head across to Cygnet Bay, a working pearl farm, where you can dine on pearl meat and choose your own Broome pearl from their showroom – perhaps an alternative engagement ring idea!
Home Valley Station
For a real outback experience, Home Valley is a working cattle station with a bit of luxury. Used as the backdrop to the movie, Australia, you’ll see the soaring red cliffs, giant boab trees and picturesque waterfalls. For something special, take a tour to the Cockburn Range for sunset drinks.
At one of the tips of Broome, Gantheaume Point is the epitome of the town with pindan cliffs overlooking the clear blue sea. Head there for sunset when all the colours of the Kimberley are the most spectacular.
Berkeley River Lodge
Take a sea plane to your own piece of paradise. The Lodge is nestled at the mouth of the Berkeley River and only accessible by plane or boat. The lodge and the rich Kimberley landscape overlooking the Timor Sea also make the Berkeley a unique wedding location.
Perfect for those looking to escape to some of the most remote parts on the Kimberley and take in the wilderness. With only eight cabins hidden in the Kununurra bushland lining the coast, it’s the perfect retreat for relaxing in the infinity pool while spotting crocs sunbathing while dolphins, sea turtles and dugong swim past. Bring a bottle of champagne with you to a nearby waterfall for a romantic escape.
