What to Expect
Travel reference:

Experience Australia's favorite hot air balloon ride with a spectacular 60 minute Gold Coast Hinterland Hot Air Balloon ride!

After an early start with hotel pick-up, you'll float up to watch the sun rise over the rolling hills of the majestic Gold Coast hinterland. Enjoy sweeping views of Tamborine Mountain and Lamington National Park and to the east, the shimmering tall towers of the Gold Coast skyline. Your professional pilot will provide you with detailed explanations of landmarks and places of interest along the way.

Upon landing you'll have the chance to take part in a fun game of folding and packing up the hot-air balloon. Afterwards, you will be taken to O'Reilly's Vineyard's historic Grand Homestead. Enjoy a crisp glass of champagne and a delicious hot breakfast in the relaxing surroundings of this beautiful homestead. Stroll the tranquil grounds or enjoy a visit the Cellar Door for some complimentary tastings - all included for free.
