We had a lovely day on this trip. It was very relaxing, lunch was delicious and enjoyed the water activities available on the island. Only down fall was that we were a family on a day trip combined with a christmas party who were all very drunk, loud and rowdy. We felt very uncomfortable especially travelling back from the island as at this stage the drunken people were very drunk and loud and were dropping their alcohol all over the floor of the boat and having trashy conversations whilst we were trying to enjoy the serenity of the waters on the way home. A bit disappointed that families were combined with drunken fools not appropriate.

We did it from Gold Coast. After the initial hiccup of getting up at 3.30 to be picked up at 4am, it was a fairly smooth ride. Our pilot was Italian and highly experienced in hot air ballooning. The weather was perfect for the activity and we started on time (just after dawn). We spotted few groups of kangaroos from top which was great. The overall scenery from top was good with views of forest and open lands.
The breakfast was not upto mark and we were a bit disappointed with the quality of breakfast. However, it was in a beautiful vineyard which made up for the not-so-great breakfast. If you haven't done hot air ballooning before, give it a shot!!!

Doing what: Hot Air Ballooning including Champagne Breakfast from the Gold Coast or Brisbane

This was a short 3-4 hour tour which looked exciting on account of rain forest and glow worms. We were a group of 12 on a 4WD (mini bus kind of vehicle but very comfortable). Started around 8 and ended at 9.30 with a 1-km trek inside rainforest to view the glow worms. That was definitely a site worth watching but apart from that nothing much v exciting. You can give it a miss easily.
