If you’re looking for that special place to go down on one knee, then look no further than Wilson Island.

A tiny five acre island on the Great Barrier Reef, the castaway haven of Wilson Island has been named one of the top places to pop the question by boutique hotel travel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith.

Wilson Island was named fourth in a list of top 10 hotels to propose, alongside other destinations as far afield as Belize, Marrakech and South Africa.

“With just six luxury tents set beside the sea on a tiny tropical islet, Wilson Island may just be the most romantic campsite on earth,” said Mr & Mrs Smith.

“You can gaze straight out at the ocean from the comfort of your bed, taking in the empty beach strewn with coral, and spend days draped around each other in a hammock big enough for two. If you're planning to propose, you'll be looking for isolation - the most private of the island's six luxurious beachfront tents.”

The ultimate in Australian castaway islands, a visit to Wilson Island allows couples to switch off their mobile phones – no mobile reception means blissfully quiet holidays – and enjoy world-class snorkelling, lazing in a hammock and re-discovering their inner Robinson Crusoe.

Explore the tiny island on foot or check out the creatures of the sea from a glass-bottom kayak, or with some world-class snorkelling. Watch green and loggerhead turtles laying their eggs or hatchlings emerging. Wilson Island provides a maximum of just 12 guests with unrivalled access to the magnificent reef and beach environments, including rare turtle and bird breeding grounds.

Join chef and host, Billy and Madison, for Champagne and oysters as the sun sets and celebrate the proposal over a sensational seafood dinner in the Longhouse.

And what better place to say ‘I do’ than on Wilson Island. Invite friends and family to your wedding by hiring the entire island for yourselves and five other couples. Hiring Wilson Island exclusively starts from AUD $8,268 for two nights. The price includes all meals, selected alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, launch transfer from Heron Island and snorkelling equipment.
