Whether you’re looking for something more private or if you’re more the outdoorsy type, we have something that will undeniably work for you.

1. Rotundas

A beautiful rotunda in a gorgeous location certainly makes for an amazing proposal location. They suit couples that love being outside but still want some privacy for their proposal. Rotundas are charming structures mostly located in parks, reserves and beaches. They provide cover when potential rain or wind could occur on your proposal date, making them the perfect wet weather back up location. We know your proposal will already have you feeling overwhelmed, so this undercover location will you save your yourself from any additional stress on the day! Canberra’s best rotunda locations for a proposal are Glebe Park Rotunda and Yerrabi Pond Rotunda. Yerrabi Rotunda provides the perfect background if you’re after stunning water views!

2. Parks/Reserves

Are you an adventurous couple that loves an outdoor activity or scenic outing? Proposing in a beautiful park/reserve will be the way to go! Tell your partner you’re going for a walk or hike and instead, stumble upon a surprise picnic setting and propose! It’s the perfect fake story to ensure your partner is surprised. If this is your vibe, one of the best proposal locations in Canberra is the National Arboretum. It has 250 hectares worth of amazing gardens and forests. Whether you’re looking for a vantage point or a beautiful area in nature, there will be a spot for you! We also love the Regatta Point Precinct at Canberra and Region Visitors Centre. It’s the perfect backdrop with it’s stunning water feature, thus making for fun and playful proposal photos! This is a great option if you are visiting Canberra as your partner will not be suspicious, going to the visitors’ centre.
