Planning a proposal isn’t something you can pull off the night before and location is a major factor in making the moment memorable.
When you’ve found The One – and the dream engagement ring too – it’s time to up the ante on where to pop the question. Sydney has something for everyone’s idea of romance, so whether you’re into rustic aesthetics or the relaxed beachside, these eight Sydney venues are bound to make your proposal perfect in every way.
Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel
Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is all romantic vibes and stunning sunset views. These guys are completely bespoke and will work with you to create a proposal to remember. They’re passionate about making sure all the details reflects the couple, which means everything from accommodation to events to chefs, is centred around your special moment.
Whether you’re proposing from the top deck overlooking the beach, creating an intimate moment in their sunset room or boasting a romantic ambience from their Juliette balcony, each space has a memorable atmosphere and a stunning backdrop that will make for treasured photographs.
Jonah’s Romantic Escape will have your fiancé saying yes in no time. We suggest getting to Jonah’s from Rose Bay via Sydney Seaplanes, which makes for a memorable arrival overlooking picturesque views of Sydney Harbour and the Northern Beaches. Get dropped off at the Bible Gardens for your sweet proposal and take in the moment with a meal and champagne, finished with a gorgeous bouquet on the table.
Think all the indulgence and luxury you guys deserve with an overnight accommodation in one of their Ocean Retreat Rooms. Upon opening the door, a trail of scattered rose petals will lead the lucky lady to a long-stem boxed rose and Molton Brown “his and hers” gift. Think champagne and delicious chocolate-coated strawberries to continue the celebration. Plus, you can’t say no to a full à la carte breakfast the next morning.
Hyatt Regency is all for the personalised proposal, helping you create the perfect setting to pop the question. We’re talking rooftop proposal at Zephyr Bar for drinks and the ultimate suite experience with an in-room spa.
You can definitely tailor the way you get down on one knee with any of their private function rooms and bespoke food and beverage options. Whether you opt for a Sunday Brunch, Afternoon Tea or Rooftop package, there is a spot and a scene for every couple to cherish the moment forever.
Four Seasons boasts a spectacular and luxurious five-star experience for your unforgettable moment. The venue is a proposal hot-spot considering its striking panoramic views of our iconic Sydney Harbour. The concierge team are professionals when it comes to creating those once-in-a-lifetime experiences, with the hotel being a perfect destination for sweeping your partner off their feet.
Give these guys some advance notice and they can organise all kinds of fairytales, from helicopter rides, romantic dinners on luxury yachts, and a sky-written “WILL YOU MARRY ME” to put your significant other on cloud nine.

Every Flying Fish proposal is different to the one before it. The venue is all about rustic ambience with its industrial-maritime heritage and floor-to-ceiling views of the breathtaking Sydney Harbour Bridge or Balmain’s gorgeous sunset.
Every creative detail is customised to the couple for a special moment that truly reflects their relationship.
Deckhouse is all about the relaxed feels with its beachy vibes and wooden accents. The couple can take in their special time, embraced by uninterrupted waterside views. Plus, we can imagine you hand-in-hand as you head to the spectacular sunlit deck area.
A walk through Clarkes Point Reserve makes for beautiful photos that capture all the love and will remain a keepsake forever.
The Blue Room Bondi
Get caught up in Bondi’s magic with The Blue Room‘s front terrace that overlooks the iconic shoreline. We can imagine the sun setting across the horizon just before you pop the question to get you in all the romantic feels. Whether you guys are locals or are in awe of the fresh atmosphere, The Blue Room Bondi is a perfect proposal venue.
The Blue Room features a back patio where string lighting and the ocean breeze makes for a gorgeous photo opportunity. If you’re daring enough, you can make the jump of commitment here like previous couples! Here, your private and romantic dinner under festoon lighting will follow the beautiful terrace proposal. Think an acoustic guitar player or string trio, depending on your preference, along with French champagne for a touching experience.
Dunbar House, located on the shores of Watsons Bay, offers stunning locations to create the dream proposal. Whether you’re popping the question under the beautiful fig tree or on the Dunbar House terrace overlooking Sydney Harbour, each location has a unique touch that will make your proposal one to remember.
We suggest organising private transfers via Sydney Harbour to make the experience that little bit more special. Blindfold your partner for that extra element of surprise!
