What is an elopement?

An elopement is a small wedding between you and your partner. Typically, they just involve the both of you, a celebrant, and 2 witnesses.

For a comprehensive breakdown of what exactly an elopement is, have a look at this blog post which I made on what an elopement is.

Elopements may be known by other names, such a micro wedding, or intimate wedding.

Why should you elope?

There are a lot of advantages to eloping compared to weddings, which I’ve written about in full here.

One of the biggest reasons couples love to elope is to have a much more intimate adventure with a day that is focused on making them happy, rather than 200 other people, many of whom they hardly see.

How do you elope?

Eloping is straightforward and a lot easier than traditional weddings, as you’re basically planning a fun holiday for yourselves! I’ve written about the whole process on how to elope here, but if you’d like to see a comprehensive video on the whole process, check out my video below:

All you need to elope is the following:

  • Yourselves;
  • Rings;
  • Lodge a Notice of intent to Marry 30 days before your elopement;
  • EITHER (a) a celebrant or officiant who can legally wed you on your day; or (b) a legal ceremony at a registered address, such as a chapel (don’t worry, you can do this to get the legal paperwork done, and save your vows for later.

That’s it!

Why elope in Brisbane?

Brisbane is a city full of well design and groomed amenities and the city has a real focus on creating green spaces. Inside the metropolitan area of Brisbane, there are plenty of parks and waterfront walks. Just outside of Brisbane you’re treated with fantastic national parks, such as D’Aguilar National Park, Venman Bushland National Park, and Wickham National Park.

Adjacent to Brisbane is also North Stradbroke Island, or ‘Straddie’ as it is affectionately known. As part of the Blue Lakes National Park, North Stradbroke island is a key elopement destination for so many couples because of it’s island vibe and stunning sights.

Being located right on the East Coast of Australia, the climate is fantastic, making it perfect for couples who want to elope in the heat but have the space to enjoy a dip in the ocean as well.

The main reasons to elope in Brisbane are:

  • A great diversity of tropical environments, from golden beaches, to deep mangrove swamps;
  • Beautiful city walks which show off the green space and infrastructure of Brisbane;
  • North Stradbroke island, providing an exceptional escape from the city life;
  • Great weather all year round, which makes it perfect for couples who love the warmer weather.

What is the best time of year to elope in Brisbane?

Brisbane is graced with sunny and pleasant weather all year round. In Summer, from November to February you can expect the temperature to reach a top of around 29.0° Celsius (84.2° Fahrenheit). Then in the Winter, from July to August you’ll still be able to enjoy the weather, with a top of around 20.0° Celsius (68° Fahrenheit). Brisbane’s comfortable climate is what makes it such a popular place to elope in.

The rainiest months typically are from January to March, and then again in December. If you’re looking to elope in Brisbane and want to have the lowest chance of experiencing rain, look at eloping in August.

However if you’re looking make sure that you have enough sunshine, October seems to be the month with the most sunshine; 260 hours hits Brisbane during this warm month.

What does an elopement day typically look like?

Here is an example of what your Brisbane elopement could look like if you loved the idea of getting married at Straddie Island in November, one of Brisbane’s best elopement locations:

8:00am – Wake up and make breakfast with champagne cocktails

9:00am – Go for a walk into town to get some fresh seafood to cook for dinner

10:00am – Arrive back at local AirBNB to relax and go for a morning swim at the beach

2:30pm – Photography starts and getting ready starts

3:00pm – First look at local AirBNB

3:15pm – Head off to ceremony site at Point Lookout

3:30pm – Arrive at Point Lookout for walk and to choose ceremony spot on rocks overlooking turtle bay

3:45pm – Ceremony overlooking the ocean

4:00pm – Ceremony concludes and celebrations!

4:15pm – Walk around Point Lookout, searching for whales, turtles and having some snacks

5:15pm – Head down to Cylinder Beach for a sunset swim and walk

5:20pm – Arrive at Cylinder Beach and head for a swim

6:15pm – Sunset

6:30pm – Head back to local AirBNB for seafood dinner and drinks whilst star gazing

7:30pm – Photography concludes and you enjoy the rest of your evening

As part of my bespoke elopement package service, I help design your perfect day with you, so you don’t have to worry about scheming up the logistics of the day.

What Brisbane elopement packages are there?

Whilst there may be many companies out there that will offer an elopement package, many of these come bundled with preset vendors and locations. In my experience of talking to other couples who have researched this, these are designed to be a ‘turn and churn’ approach.

I believe that your story is unique, and as such everything I create when it comes to elopement packages are bespoke to the couple. Whilst I don’t come bundled with any vendors, I do this to allow you ultimate freedom in where you’d like to elope, with me also providing customised local vendors specific to the location you choose.

Ultimately, this will provide a much better and personal experience for you both.

Should we have an acknowledgement of land?

Whilst this is never a legal necessity, I highly recommend to all couples to include an acknowledgement of land. This is to pay respect to the original landowners of Australia, who are still not recognised as the traditional landowners in the Australian Constitution.

I recommend doing this because it pays respect to the people who originally looked after the lands of Australia, and who know and understand them best. The Australian Government has never formally recognised that these lands were taken against their will from the traditional landowners.

Please consider doing an acknowledgement of land for your elopement ceremony. It takes less than 10 seconds extra to say, but pays tribute and raises awareness of these current issues.

Always was, always will be.

Best places to elope in NSW / NSW Elopement Packages

Registry Office Wedding Ceremony Locations in Brisbane

If you’re looking to go on an adventure and realise that a celebrant may not be perfectly suited for the 4-hour hike you’d like to do, then you’ll need to lodge the paperwork and do the legal stuff at a Registry Office.

The way in which these work are you’d get all the paperwork done, but hold your vows for your elopement. Many couples have done this before and realise that it’s the vows which make the most significant difference when it comes to eloping.

Here is the Registry Office Wedding Ceremony Location in Brisbane:

The best places to elope in Brisbane

Here is a list of my top places to elope in Brisbane, broken down by the environment they are in. 

Forest elopement locations

Devils Break Loop, Moggill Conservation Park 

Length: 6.4km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 34 minutes

This bush walk provides a peaceful stroll through an open woodland. Here are a couple of steep sections, so make sure you bring good footwear as well. You’ll see rocky ridges, dense forests, and some fantastic views out to Brisbane. This makes the perfect Brisbane elopement location if you’re a couple who love a good hike and want to see some nature and views whilst at it.

Just be sure to bring a GPS or use an app on your phone to track where you are, as it isn’t very well signposted.

Dogs are also welcome on this track, so if you want to bring your furry friend along for your elopement, this is a great spot for it.

Honeyeater Track, Constitution Hill

Length: 5.6km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 20 minutes

This straightforward bushwalking track starts from the Chapel Hill Road Trail trailhead, and goes through a variety of forest-based tracks, including the Honeyeater, Scorpion, and Litchfield tracks. You’ll be treated to a variety of environments as well, such as rainforest gullies, and eucalypt forests.

This track has an abundance of wildlife, and wild flowers, so if you are a lover of animals, this could be the perfect Brisbane Elopement location for you.

Toohey and Nathan Ridge Track, Toohey Forest Conservation Park

Length: 6.9km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 12 minutes

Filled wih great views, plenty of forests, and wild rock outcrops, this nature track is the perfect Brisbane elopement location for couples who want to experience the bush in the city. Being located a mere 12 minutes from the CBD, if you’re a couple who want a taste of the bush without trekking into one of the big national parks, this could be the perfect spot for you to elope in.

What’s more, this track is also dog-friendly! Although, you’ll need to keep them on a leash.

Venman Track, Venman Bushland National Park

Length: 7.6km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 30 minutes

This bush walk provides an easy stroll through the Venman Bushland National Park, a small National Park just outside of Brisbane. Well-marked, and with great surfaces, this makes for the perfect Brisbane elopement location if you want something easy going. You’ll also be able to go through a few small creeks, and see some along the way.

Piper Comanche Wreck, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 8.5km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 1 hour

Ever fancied getting married, with the husk of a plane as your backdrop? Well, the Piper Comanche Walk will help you out there! This walking track will take you along the route of the Piper Comanche plane wreck from March 1977. It isn’t well-marked, so be sure to bring a GPS or a map too.

However, you’ll be treated to thick eucalypt forests, massive trees, and beautiful mountains which you can see out to Brisbane from.

Whilst this can be a very adventurous walk, it is not recommended for novices who haven’t much experience at navigating, and sadly every year, hikers do end up having to be rescued because of this. Just watch out for the leeches and mosquitos too.

Greenes Falls and Rainforest Circuit, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 4.2km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 53 minutes

This easy and accessible walk has a variety of different environments in it, and would be perfect for the couple that want it all in a rainforest adventure.

Along the walk you’ll come across a waterfall, lush green forests, and plenty of rocky outcrops to sit on and admire the scenery from. There is an abundance of fantastic wildlife and rocky creeks to enjoy and explore.

If you want to, feel free to combine this walk with others in the D’Aguilar National Park for your Brisbane elopement.

Waterfall elopement locations

Gardners Falls, Maleny

Length: 0.8km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 1 hour, 20 minutes

These stunning blue pools provide the perfect Brisbane elopement if you’re looking for somewhere with waterfalls, rainforests, and easy access.

Whilst this can be a popular spot, you’ll be able to take a dip, enjoy the sights and sounds of the falls, and revel in the deep and lush forests there. This is a great waterfall elopement location for couples who want to combine a swim and some scenery for their big day.

Simpson Falls Via Powerful Owl Trail, Mount Coot-Tha

Length: 6.4km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 18 minutes

Simpson Falls is the perfect waterfall elopement spot for couples in Brisbane who don’t want to travel too far from the centre to find a great waterfall and bush walk.

During the walk to Simpson Falls, you’ll go via Powerful Owl Trail, which is a moderately easy walk, with bit of a steep climb at times; however you’ll go through stunning eucalypt forests, with a tonne of birds (how this great trail got its name).

JC Slaughter Falls via Summit Track and Aboriginal Art Trail, Mount Coo-Tha

Length: 1.8km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 20 minutes

This waterfall track contains some stunning aboriginal artwork, and is worth considering if you want to elope in Brisbane. Located just 20 minutes outside the Brisbane CBD, you’ll be able to experience a gorgeous forest walk, complete with rocky outcrops, boardwalks, and well signposted areas.

Whilst the waterfall here does look great, it is best visited after heavy rains to really see it flow.

Cedar Falls, Love Falls and Greens Falls, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 7.4km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 50 minutes

Whilst this is one of the more difficult walks on this list, the trek to these three waterfalls is worth it. This elopement location is perfect for the Brisbane couple who love to have a bit of an adventure on their elopement.

You’ll take a stunning walk through the forest across boulders and fallen trees, to be rewarded with being able to take a dip in the water at the base of the waterfalls, and take in the sights of these crystal clear blue waters for your elopement. If you want a real adventure for your elopement, this is it.

This is another track that isn’t amazingly well signposted, so be sure to bring a GPS or map with you to make sure you know where you are going. Oh, and you’ll definitely want to make sure you have your bug repellent for this area, with leeches and mosquitos unfortunately being prevalent.

Northbrook Gorge, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 7.4km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 1 hour, 8 minutes

Complete with hidden caves, huge gorges and plenty of wildlife and forests, this special hike to Northbrook Gorge is worth the walk. If you’re the type of couple who want a Brisbane elopement with a waterfall and an adventure, you should consider this walk.

For this walk, you’ll be going through multiple crossings, and see stunning rock pools, waterholes, and lots of greenery. With so many great rock pools and waterholes, be sure to bring some waterproof bags and a change of clothes if you want to have a dip. The perfect place to have a dip and swim.

Note that this can be a popular spot and that the car park can only fit around 7 cars before it gets full, so if you want to make a day of it .

Alex Road to Love Creek Falls, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 1.6km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 1 hour

Another difficult but highly rewarding waterfall track on this list. Whilst it is rated as difficult, don’t let that dissuade you from giving this a try and look at.

This track takes you on boardwalks through deep forests filled with tall trees, all the way to Love Creek Falls. This huge waterfall can be admired from the top, or you can even abseil down the side of it to get to the bottom.

You’ll be able to enjoy the sight of this waterfall regardless, and it makes the perfect elopement location for couples who want a good adventure, whilst being surrounded by massive tropical trees.

Mountain elopement locations

Northbrook Mountain, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 10.1km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 1 hour

Filled with epic mountain views, deep forests and windy tracks, this gorgeous walk would be the perfect Brisbane elopement location for couples who love the idea of massive mountain views for their elopement.

Clocking in at 10.1km, this can be a good day walk, and is easy to follow, with wide paths and good signage throughout. Along the way you’ll go through creeks, mountain heath, and tonnes of wildflowers, until you arrive at the Northbrook Mountain Summit. Here you’ll get some stunning views across the D’Aguilar National Park.

Mermaid Mountain Walk, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 12.9km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 42 minutes

Steep climbs, but incredible views; the Mermaid Mountain walk provides some of the best views around, looking out to Lake Manchester, Mount Nebo, and Jollys lookout.

This great trek goes through stunning eucalypt forests and bushland, although be sure to bring plenty of water and a GPS and map, as the path isn’t always so well sign posted.

As mentioned, this is definitely one of the steeper climbs on this list, ascending 481m, so bring good footwear for this one. However, the hard trek is worth it for the great views at the top!

Thylogale Walking Track, D’Aguilar National Park

Length: 8.5km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 40 minutes

This gorgeous trail provides excellent views, a remarkable array of different trees, and even bush turkeys. If you’ve always wanted to elope in Brisbane with some thick forests and a great bushwalking adventure, the Thylogale Walking Track could be perfect for you!

This trek is an easy stroll through the forest, and is well shaded, so you won’t be cooked alive either. You’ll find plenty of different tree species along the way, as well as lots of birds and other wildlife.

This is a great Brisbane elopement location for couples who enjoy a good bush walk and want to say ‘I do’ in gorgeous thick forests surrounded by wildlife.

White Rock Ridge Track, White Rock Conservation Parks

Length: 6.6km return

White Rock is an impressive and huge outcrop that makes for the perfect backdrop for couples who want to get married in the bush.

You’ll also be able to see out to Brisbane when you get to White Rock.

Whilst many places all around Australia are of importance to the traditional landowners, White Rock is a special place to them. I highly encourage you to have an acknowledgement of country if you are thinking of using this as your Brisbane elopement location. Please also do not climb the rock, as tempting as it may be.

Beach elopement locations

Cylinder Beach, North Stradbroke Island

Length: 3km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 2 hours (Includes Ferry Ride)

Located right next to Cylinder Beach Campsite, this great walk goes along the coastline and will let you explore huge rocky outcrops, brilliant beaches, and provides a great place for couples looking to elope by the beach.

This relaxed walk takes you across the beaches of the South East part of the beautiful Bribie Island, and is a fantastic Brisbane elopement location and walk if you want an easy but beautiful beach adventure.

Length: 9.7km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 1 hour, 16 minutes

Taking you along the South West part of Bribie Island, is the Taranggeer Trail. This beach trail is a bit more city focussed than the previous Bribie Island Surfside Walk, but still provides a great and easy elopement location for couples who enjoy the beach.

There are also points along the walk which have great lookouts and piers if you love the idea of exploring those.

Due to its proximity to the more urban areas of Bribie Island, you’ll find it easier to head into town after to get something to eat or drink, too.

Wellington Point to King Island Sand Bar Walk, Alexandra Hills 

Length: 3.2km return
Time to drive from Brisbane CBD: 41 minutes

This may be one of the more unique beach elopement locations in Brisbane, with this Sand Bar being visible at low tide; as such, you’ll have to make sure you check the timings of your big day with the tides to make sure you can reach this spot.
