THE secret slices of paradise nestled in the central Queensland region have been named among the best locations for beach weddings in the state.

Tourism Queensland has made a list of 89 Queensland Beach Wedding Locations, including 13 in the central Queensland region.

While the top half was dominated by the Gold and Sunshine Coast beaches, our region was given its glory placing at 50 – 63.

It’s no surprise with the beautiful Agnes Water beach and the peaceful Seventeen Seventy headland just on our doorstep.

“I think we have beautiful beaches which are comparable anywhere in Queensland,” Mrs Whicker said.

“They’re casual and most times people just have thongs or no shoes at all.”

Mrs Whicker said she would do up to 30 beach weddings a year.

Most are at either Agnes Water, Seventeen Seventy or Canoe Point at Tannum Sands.

Earlier this year Amanda and Chris Krybolder tied the knot at Seventeen Seventy

The Gladstone couple told this paper it wasn’t a hard decision to choose where to have their wedding.”We love it down at Seventeen Seventy,” the bride told The Observer for a milestones story.”It’s so nice and relaxing and beautiful.”
