If you’re looking for the best proposal ideas and the most unique proposal packages in Melbourne, choose from one of five private and romantic proposal packages by helicopter from Rotor One. The best ways to propose include a beach proposal, winery engagement and weekend proposal getaway by helicopter in Melbourne.
Every helicopter proposal package is designed to be private and romantic, allowing you to create a unique moment for your engagement that you’ll remember for the rest of your lives.
Option 1. Helicopter Proposal Flight over the Beach
Our classic engagement package with a mid-air proposal over the Brighton Beach Boxes
Treat your partner to a scenic helicopter flight over Melbourne and experience all of Melbourne’s famous landmarks and attractions from above. Soar over Melbourne CBD and then fly low and slow over Melbourne’s beaches taking in the sights of St Kilda Pier, Elwood Beach, the Brighton Beaches Boxes and Sandringham Marina.
As you’re flying over the iconic Brighton Beach Boxes in your private helicopter there’ll be no better moment to pop the question. Combine your special moment with our video package and receive a HD video capturing the moment you propose and the moment you place the ring on her finger, and all with crystal-clear audio recorded directly from the headsets in the helicopter.
After your helicopter lands and you’re back on the ground at Essendon, our hangar has amazing views of the Melbourne City skyline in the background allowing you to take stunning photos together with the helicopter and allowing your partner show off that amazing ring! Also, to reduce any suspicion of what you’re planning, let us know if you’d like us to send you both a fake email saying you’ve “Won a free helicopter ride over Melbourne!” to make this even more of a surprise!
Option 2. Helicopter Proposal Flight at Sunrise
A unique proposal package with breathtaking views of the city and the chance to see hot air balloons at sunrise
Our Melbourne at Sunrise helicopter flights are a spectacular experience allowing you to fly over Melbourne and the beaches just as the sun is rising over Melbourne!
Very similar to a hot air balloon ride but without the 4:00 AM departure time, helicopter proposal flights at sunrise are in high demand as the morning sun delivers spectacular lighting for amazing photos of Melbourne CBD, Luna Park, the Brighton Beach Boxes and the MCG. The early time of day also means there are often hot air balloons flying over the city which makes this flight unique, romantic and one of the best ways to propose in Melbourne.
After your dreamy sunrise flight has landed and you're both still on cloud nine, your Pilot will leave you in private next to the helicopter with nothing but the crisp morning air, the sound of birds waking up around you and amazing outdoor views of the sun-soaked, Melbourne City skyline in the background. This creates the the perfect moment for you to get down on one knee and make an amazing proposal that is guaranteed to be even more magical than your sunrise flight.
Please note Melbourne at Sunrise flights are shared and anyone can book 1, 2 or 3 seats in the helicopter. If you’d like to reserve a sunrise flight privately and just for the two of you, please purchase 3 seats and the flight will automatically switch to a private experience (All other flights from Rotor One are already private and the booking of all seats is not required).
Option 3. Helicopter Proposal Flight with a Giant “Will You Marry Me?" Sign Visible from the Air
Our exclusive proposal package with a giant, 25-metre long sign on the ground that will leave her speechless
At the right moment your Pilot will mention a code word when you're approaching the secret location, giving you enough time to reach in to your pocket and ask your partner to look out the window and down to the ground. She’s guaranteed to be left speechless when she reads the words out aloud and turns back to see you holding a ring in your hand and smiling back at her. This is a once-in-a-lifetime engagement that unfolds 1,000 feet in the air and is one of the most romantic and creative ways to propose in Melbourne.

Option 4. Winery Proposal with 3-Course Lunch by Helicopter
A romantic engagement package with helicopter flights, lunch at a winery and your proposal in a beautiful vineyard or wedding chapel
Be whisked away on a private helicopter flight to the Yarra Valley to land at a beautiful winery for a romantic lunch date with your partner. As you arrive you’ll be greeted by winery staff and escorted to a secret spot — either outdoors amongst the vines or inside a beautiful chapel — where a private setting awaits you and serves as a romantic backdrop for you to take your partner’s hand and ask for his (or her) hand in marriage. This is a truly magical engagement moment in a romantic location that is just for the two of you to share.
After your special proposal moment together, take a relaxing walk through the vineyard to the restaurant where your table will be ready to serve your three, five or seven course meal with matching wines. If you’d like to surprise your partner even more, our winery proposal packages can be extended to include a group booking for lunch, allowing family and friends to be waiting at the winery restaurant to congratulate you both and celebrate your very special proposal over an amazing lunch menu.

Option 5. Romantic Proposal Getaway by Helicopter with Dinner and Accomodation
A private proposal getaway to the Yarra Valley including a helicopter flight, romantic dinner, luxury overnight accomodation and couples itinerary
Make your engagement truly unforgettable with a romantic proposal getaway to the exclusive Kangaroo Ridge Resort in the Yarra Valley. Enjoy a two night stay in one of three luxury cabins in a private and secluded location with spectacular views overlooking the Yarra Valley.
Enjoy high teas and a private wine tasting at sunset on your private balcony and create the perfect setting for an intimate sunset proposal in the most romantic way possible.
Your next day's couples itinerary includes a champagne breakfast to celebrate your engagement, followed by a visit to the Yarra Valley Chocolate Factory, a wine tour at Yering Station and delicious winery lunch at Yering Farm, where you also have the option of inviting family and friends to join you to celebrate.
Finish your proposal getaway with an afternoon gin tasting experience at Four Pillars Distillery in Healesville before enjoying one final night in your luxury cabin at Kangaroo Ridge Resort before departing the next day by car or helicopter back to Melbourne.
