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

Spend a memorable morning in the sky and cross an item off your bucket list with this hot air balloon flight, operated by one of the top-rated ballooning companies in Australia. After early morning pickup at your Gold Coast or Brisbane hotel, travel to the launch site and climb aboard a sturdy basket attached to a state-of-the-art balloon that stretches 10 stories high when inflated with hot air!

As you rise off the ground, get an unbeatable perspective of the Gold Coast hinterland while soaring over forests, pastures, vineyards and lakes. Your onboard guide will point out passing attractions during your 30- or 60-minute flight (choose option at booking).

After touching down, take part in the fun task of packing up the giant balloon before heading off to O'Reilly’s homestead and vineyard for a savory home-cooked breakfast. Feast on Aussie favorites like bacon, eggs and sausage served with fresh fruit, pastries, coffee, and tea, topped off with a glass of sparkling wine. Enjoy time to explore the beautiful estate and vineyards, and visit the cellar door to see how O’Reilly’s makes its award-winning wines.

At the end of your unforgettable morning, relax on the return drive to your hotel

This was so much fun and well worth the money! Very well run, all the staff were friendly and professional. Champagne breakfast at the winery afterwards was the perfect way to end a fantastic morning.

Beautiful experience... Saw the balloon inflating and deflating. Every this was great about this tour, and best part is landing. Our tour guide was very nice... as a sweet gesture gave us plastic like shoe cover to protect our shoes as it rained a night before. Everywhere was muddy and slippery. Breakfast is also good.. legs pain standing for 1 hour in balloon but best moments are experienced.

This tour was amazing! Everything was done on time and the driver was friendly and professional. A hot air balloon experience is definitely something everyone should try in their lives. Just when i thought the tour couldnt get better, the buffet breakfast afterwards was simply delightful. It was delicious, offered a good variety and we dined with breathtaking views of nature. Thumbs up for this tour! Worth every cent and worth getting up really early.

This is a must do trip and even if you are scared of heights you can still do this, the staff were brilliant. Didn't think much of the breakfast but I didn't book the trip for the breakfast.
