Planning to pop the question?

Go no farther than the stunning Sunshine Coast for a memorable backdrop to your ‘down on bended knee’ moment.

There are so many gorgeous venues for a surprise gourmet picnic – from glorious beaches to the evergreen hinterland.

But if you really want to take the moment to the max, why not choose a Flying High Proposal package with Oceanview Helicopters and Flaxton Gardens.

Departing from Caloundra, you and your beloved will be chauffeured by chopper along the coastline then inland to the Glasshouse Mountains, for a scenic flight to remember.

The ultimate destination is Flaxton Gardens on the Blackall Range – a mountain-top idyll straight from a Hollywood rom-com.

As you orbit the venue, you’ll spy a “Marry Me” sign spelled out on the lawn – so there may be tears of joy even before you set down.

After arriving in style, you and your partner get to dine in style – under the canopy of a Glamacamp tent setting, complete with flowers, candles and soft furnishings.

Choose a signature high tea to mark the occasion. Options include the ‘High Seas’ – which features fresh seafood – then toast the big moment with a bottle of bubbles and a photo of the newly betrothed love-birds.

So – you’ve popped the question and your better half has replied in the affirmative. Good work! Now, take a deep breath, because next on the agenda is the ‘big one’.  Not the wedding – the party!

Bucks, hens, bachelor, bachelorette – tomato, tomahto! No matter what you call it, the pre-wedding shindig must go off with a bang.

For the blokes, how about rallying a bunch of your mates and hooking up with Josh Donohoe of Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours?

Josh will ferry you from brewery to brewery – there are usually 4 included in the tour – and introduce you to some of the best craft drops on the coast.  For a bucks’ do, you can even tack on extra activities – like jet ski-ing – before you down a brewski, of course!

And what about the bride-to-be?

Weddings at Tiffanys at Maleny is not only a stunning venue for exchanging marriage vows, but it also offers sophisticated high teas – perfect for Hens or Bachelorette parties.

Take in a panorama of the Glasshouse Mountains while you and your best girlfriends kick back, sip tea from tableware designed by Christina Re – and then toast the woman of the hour with a glass of champagne.
