Best Places to Propose in Gippsland - Lakes Entrance

Raymond Island

Raymond Island is a short ferry ride free from Paynesville. There is abundant wildlife and it is easy to spot koalas on the koala walk. There are also kangaroos, echidnas, pelicans, and many other birds and wildlife species to spot. The island has quiet beaches, walking tracks, and bike riding. There are excellent views of the lakes, and it is the perfect spot for a super romantic picnic.

Wilsons Promontory National Park

The views here are lovely and there are many ways that you can experience this beautiful natural environment. Take a day trip from Melbourne, book a full day cruise or take a walk and wildlife tour. There are some fantastic places to stay such as the lighthouse cottage accommodation or Tidal River cabins. Beaches, bushland, hikes, and stunning scenery are all here.

Squeaky Beach

With beautiful turquoise waters this iconic beach is located at Wilsons Promontory. Take in romantic views to distant islands and the headlands or enjoy the whitest of sand. It is hard to find a more ideal proposal spot! There is a mass of granite boulders with passages to explore, lots of nearby walks and the beach is just a five-minute walk from Squeaky Beach car park.

Wyanga Park Winery

At this family owned winery purchase unique hand-crafted wines. There is a lovely open fire during the winter months. This secluded super romantic spot is accessible by car or boat. There is absolutely delicious food, interesting artwork on the restaurant walls, a great vibe – and the winery is set in a  quaint bush setting. There is the best ever wine and food and the desserts are delectable. You receive excellent service and the host has a great sense of humour. This will be a proposal to remember.

Venus Bay Eco Retreat

Located in the middle of a Banksia forest in the Anderson Inlet, this is an idyllic retreat into nature. It is a beautiful drive there, the hosts are great, and there is native wildlife such as kangaroos, koalas and wombats, and beautiful fauna. The cabin is a rustic self-contained converted barn with views of wildlife at the watering hole such as kangaroos, bellbirds, rosellas and other birds. Disconnect from the world at this beautiful, secluded romantic spot. There will be many magic moments on which to get down on one knee.

The Loft Restaurant

Small, rustic, cosy and intimate, this restaurant is converted from stable buildings that date back to the 1800’s. This restaurant is super memorable, and you will rave about the food and local wines.
