4 Breathtaking Sites to Pop the Question
Ubirr, Kakadu National Park, Kakadu
Watching the sun set at Ubirr, an iconic destination in Kakadu National Park, is an unforgettable experience all by itself. Now add floodplains, a rainbow of colours in the sky and the reflective blue waters of the billabongs into the mix and this is the perfect place to pop that all-important question.
Sunrise Hot Air Ballooning, Alice Springs
If you’re about to propose, you may be too nervous to take in the view but your partner will love it! Float above the red desert sands in a hot air balloon as the first sunlight creeps over the horizon. Clink Champagne glasses and take in a bird’s eye view of Australia’s Red Centre. It’s hard to imagine a more 'uplifting' place to propose.
Litchfield National Park, Darwin & Surrounds
A popular day trip destination for outdoor weekend warriors, Litchfield National Park is home to heart-stoppingly beautiful landscapes. Plunge into diamond-hued waterholes beneath the spring-fed waterfalls of Florence and Wangi Falls, or soak in the gentle three-tiered cascade shaded by rainforest at Buley Rockhole. If you’re outdoorsy types who like to camp it up by pitching a tent or maybe casting a line or two, pop the question here with Mother Nature as your witness.
If you’re taking the plunge, nothing proves commitment more than jumping out of a plane and hurtling back to Earth with the one you love. For those planning an adrenaline-pumping proposal, SkyDive Uluru offers married-couples-to-be video and photo packages of their jump as a memento.

Kings Canyon Resort, Uluru
There are few spots in the NT more beautiful than the grooves you’ll find on the Walpa Gorge walk. You’ll also be walking in the 400 million-year old history of the Pitjantjatjara Anangu, for whom the ancient Kata Tjuta mountains of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park are sacred. The rugged red landscape is the spiritual heart of Australia and one of the most beautiful places to reconnect to the country.
SkyCity Darwin, Darwin
Looking to host a tropical wedding with NT class? Darwin is the ideal option. The capital has a host of accommodation, and indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception venues.

Perched on Mindil Beach with views across the Arafura Sea this resort is paradise.
Pee Wee’s at the Point, Darwin Harbour
