Trying to think of a place to propose to your partner? Have you thought of a scenic lookout? You may not realise it, but it’s the ultimate proposal setting; it sets the mood with breathtaking scenery, fresh air and seclusion. You have the opportunity to be as romantic as your heart desires. Behold, the best scenic lookouts in Victoria to propose.
The Horn, Mount Buffalo – The Horn is the highest point of the Mount Buffalo National Park. From The Horn, you can feast your eyes on wraparound views of the Australian Alps and plateaus, and it’s hard not to feel invincible. The lookout is a short but steep walk from the picnic area, in which you can park your car. After both you and your partner have reached the top and taken in the landscape, the ring is the next suprise!
The Balconies, Grampians– The Balconies, located at Grampians’ National Park, is an easy walk led by a rocky path alongside native shrubs and other plants. Once you get up to the lookout, you will be immensely spoilt by 360 degree views of Victoria Valley and surrounding ranges. For extra points from your partner, wait until the sun begins rising before you get on your knees!
Arthur’s Seat, Mornington Peninsula – Arthur’s Seat is the peak of the Mornington Peninsula, and its official lookout supplies captivating panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay, golden beaches, the Mornington and Bellarine Peninsulas as well as Melbourne’s skyline in the far distance. I would suggest proposing here at night, when the beauty of the overall view is doubled, as you can see the lights from town and the city below
