Helicopter to a secluded location

For those who want to go all out, you can helicopter to a secluded mountain for a picnic on a peak, surrounded by lake and mountain views. You could also take a hot air balloon ride complete with a champagne breakfast upon landing.

For something a little more intimate, you could soak up the views by candlelight in a private hot tub, dine under the stars, or enjoy a private dinner with lake and mountain views.

The Queenstown Gardens

The Queenstown Gardens are a serene setting and have a number of secluded spots where you could surprise your loved one with a picnic and a proposal.

If you love wine, Queenstown has many world class wineries and there are many half or full day private wine tours that visit cellar doors where you can try our famous central Otago Pinot Noir. You might also visit a wine cave, walk through the vines or enjoy a platter or lunch at a winery restaurant, where you can ask that special someone for their hand in marriage.

Feeling like a rush of adrenaline to add to the nervous excitement? Queenstown is the birthplace of adventure, so you might find yourself skydiving or bungying before popping the question. Make sure you secure the ring somewhere safe before you take the leap!

Views of Queenstown from The Remarkables Ski Area

The Remarkables lookout

For those ski bunnies, the Remarkables lookout has one of the most stunning views over Lake Wakatipu. Take the Shadow chair to the top of Shadow Basin and hike ten minutes to the look out and create an unforgettable proposal memory.

There are many hidden beaches, along the Lake Wakatipu shoreline, Bobs Cove, Sunshine Bay and Wilsons bay to name a few.  You could get down on one knee on edge of the lake or head out on the water and take a ride on a vintage steamship, a state of the art catamaran, or hire a private launch for the afternoon.
