The world’s largest barrier reef extends 1,600 miles along the Coral Sea off Australia’s northeast coast. It nurtures diverse marine life—and even the occasional romance.

Sydney-based personal assistant Amy Harrison got engaged during a helicopter tour over the reef. “We hovered over the famous heart reef, where my boyfriend presented me with a sapphire ring,” she says. “The pilot was caught off-guard and jolted the helicopter slightly, but he was pretty happy for us!”

The Ride: Hamilton Island Air’s Whitehaven Beach Picnic experience goes over the Whitsundays Islands and reef then lands at Whitehaven Beach for a champagne picnic. Click on Whitsunday wedding destinations and plan your romantic wedding in one of the most beautiful islands in Australia.

$433 per person for two hours, includes picnic with sparkling wine, beach gear, and hotel pickup. Whitehaven Photo Scenic: $215 per person for 20 minutes.
