Located 30 minutes south of Brisbane CBD. Two minutes away from Sunlit Studios!
We recently discovered this stunning, hilly paddock just minutes from our studio! Based conveniently between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and only minutes off the M1 highway, this is the closest paddock option for Brisbane families and couples. Long grass, rolling hills and large trees make it a beautiful backdrop. It’s also very accessible and free from animals, so there’s no fence jumping, lots of walking or curious cows!
Located 30 minutes south of Brisbane CBD
Country fields, wheat fields, cane fields and sometimes low-lying flowers. A gorgeous red-toned shed and a little pond give this area extra variety. Very natural, rustic looking but can be brown after a dry spell.
GOLD COAST BEACH
Located in Southport, Gold Coast (20 minutes north of Surfers Paradise)
Our favourite beach has such great variety! Natural greenery, a jetty, beautiful sunsets with an amazing view of the Gold coast in the background too.
Recommended clothing colours: Pastels and whites look particularly pretty on the beach with the soft pinks of dusk.
GOLD COAST PINE FOREST
Located in Miami, Gold Coast (15 minutes north of Surfers Paradise)
Our favourite park has several incredible pine forests bordering a gorgeous lake. Plenty of variety and gorgeous colour from the orange pine-needle floor. Great for homes with dark décor and furniture.
Recommended clothing colours: Blues look amazing against the orange pine needles!
Located 60 minutes south of Brisbane CBD.
Mt Tambourine has an amazing lookout for sunset, as well as two extra locations nearby for variety. The Botanic Gardens are stunning in Autumn and Spring, or there’s a gorgeous waterfall that is only 10 minutes walk.

BRISBANE PINE FOREST
Located in Rocklea, Brisbane (20 minutes south of Brisbane CBD)
This Pine forest is a mere 15 minutes drive from Brisbane CBD, though you wouldn’t know it! It’s hidden away past gorgeous country fields. It takes a brisk 30 minute walk to reach the end spectacular pine forest, but trust us, it’s worth it! We’ve had brides and young children even make the trip!
SOUTHERN GOLD COAST
Located in Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast (10 minutes east of Gold Coast airport)
Snapper Rocks, Elephant Rock and the surrounding beaches have dramatic rock landscapes that suit engagement or maternity shoots perfectly. The slippery nature and wild waves at these beaches make it less suitable for young children.
