What To Expect

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 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.

I organised a hot air balloon ride as a surprise for my partners 40th Birthday. Prior to booking, I read reviews about this company and was amazed by the quantity of positive feedback of this company which sold me. From the time we were picked up, to board flying, landing and dining, the company were extremely organised, and all workers worked extremely well together as a team showing great professionalism, and considering safety at all times. As we were enjoying our champagne breakfast, my partner was presented with a surprise birthday cake and fabulous singing, which was a really nice touch. We would really like to thank Ben the pilot and to getting us all as high in the air as possible!, Tony who chauffeured and fascilitated the morning, and Gav the groundsman who prepped and packed away the massive hot air balloon. It was truely a fantastic experience made possible by the team, and will be forever memorable. Highly recommend.

Excellent experience and well managed. Paco the balloon pilot was very professional and also very humorous along with Gary the bus driver. Breakfast was plentiful with the added bonus of wine tasting Highly recommend would do again

This was me and my husband's first time on a Hot Air Balloon and it was quite a unique experience. Hot Air Gold Coast has a very professional team who know what they are doing. Unfortunately, there was no much wind the day we went up in a balloon. Inspite of that, it was a very nice experience slowing bobbing in the air looking around the farmlands. The highlight was watching a mob of Kangaroos skipping along below us. Such a happy feeling seeing them in their natural habitat like that.

The breakfast after the ballooning was a decent meal. Overall, it is something you should definitely try while at Gold Coast.

This has been on my bucket list for a long time, and the box has been ticked, it was the best experience I have ever had in the air, after the nerves had settled and I had let go of the rail, I was able to enjoy the ride, oh and the view from the balloon, what can I say, it was absolutely amazing, the pilot Blake, he was amazing, made the ride very enjoyable. So glad I did it, an unforgettable adventure.
