Start your day with a hot air balloon ride over the Gold Coast’s countryside. Receive a complimentary pickup from your hotel and head straight to your balloon for take-off.

Watch the massive balloon inflate with hot air before hopping aboard its sturdy basket and soaring over the gorgeous Gold Coast countryside, over vineyards, lakes, and forests. Learn about each sight as you pass over while aboard your 30- or 60-minute flight.

Once back on the ground, help pack up the balloon and then head over to O’Reilly’s Grand Homestead for a home cooked breakfast of Australian favorites. Round out the trip with a glass of sparkling wine while enjoying a tour of the estate and its cellar filled with their local wines.

Return back to your hotel after a fun-filled morning with complimentary drop-off service.

I am staying at Great Wide Waterfront, close to Convention Centre, Hooker Boulevard 8 Broadbeach Waters, QLD 4218. Will you send transport for us? We have our own transport. Will pricing be the same, if we come ourselves?
