There’s something inherently romantic about the Sunshine Coast.


Perhaps it’s the way the early morning sun sends golden rays over the ocean, or the pastel sunsets that light up the sky. 

We think it’s all of the above, and there are plenty of ways to embrace the beauty of the region with the one you love. 

Whether it’s something as simple as a romantic picnic with a view, or taking the next step with the ultimate proposal or Sunshine Coast wedding, love is well and truly in the air.  

The region is also home to professional wedding industry ready to help couples turn their dream wedding into a reality.  From the coast to the Hinterland there are a number of picturesque venues and stunning locations to tie the knot before enjoying a romantic honeymoon to remember. 

Picnic with a view

The Sunshine Coast is steeped in the kind of natural beauty that simply sparks romance.  

Embrace the great outdoors by planning a picnic with a view from one of the region’s stunning lookouts.  

You don’t even have to lift a finger, with a number of local businesses available to set up luxury picnics at your destination of choice, such as Gather by Bonnie. 

Locals tip: Some of the best spots to pull up a rug are Point Cartwright Lighthouse, Alexandra Headlands hill, Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve or the Glass House Mountains! 

The perfect date

A grand romantic gesture can mean different things to different people, but a helicopter ride to a picturesque Sunshine Coast Hinterland estate for high tea certainly seems to fit the bill.  

Whether you’re looking to take your romance to new heights or put a modern twist on your traditional dinner and a movie date, the Sunshine Coast has you covered when it comes to planning the perfect date. 

Watch a movie under the night sky at Starry Nights Outdoor Movies in Eumundi,  take it back in time at retro diner Rick’s Garage or find your sense of adventure with a mountain hike or jet ski down the Pumicestone Passage – you’ll love it!
