Our balloon flight with Hot Air was everything and all else you would expect from a very a professional outfit such as this. Everything went like clockwork to our being picked up by coach to the flight and subsequent buffet breakfast at O'Reilly's vineyard. Our host for the morning was Anton who didn't fail in his expertise. Thanks Anton.

Terra Australis. For never having been in a hot air balloon, this experience with champagne breakfast was a energetic treat. Its an early start and pick up directly from my hotel. The experience rolled out really well and Ben professionally controlled the balloon and up, up and away. Would be a beautiful gift for a birthday or anniversary or just... More

Family members achieved another activity on there bucket list. My 80 year Mother enjoyed with family members her life dream of going up in a hot air balloon.

I'm a local and found this experience just wonderful. The captain, Paco, and crew were fantastic. I can only imagine how fantastic it would be for visitors to Brisbane and the Gold Coast. I'm also not particularly fond of heights, but felt totally safe and secure in the Hot Air Balloon ride. The team were so professional and made it... More

Very nice morning with ballooning in the sunrise. Beautiful scenery and professional company. Breakfast was okay/good, but not excellent. Biggest draw backs were: 1.got stuck on a group with almost only chinese tourists. They are noisy, don´t understand english and none of them were helping packing up the balloon - a lot of work for the balloon guys, my partner... More

With an early morning start our driver delivered exceptional customer service. He was very informative, thorough and warm. The ride to Beaudesert was comfortable, and the location was perfect. It was awesome watching the balloon being set up right through to climbing aboard and rising above the clouds. The adventure was topped of with a yummy champagne breakfast. Would recommend... More

The day started early at the resort with a 45 minute drive to Canungra followed by another 30 minute drive to the balloons. The flight was great over the Canungra valley and was followed by a champagne breakfast at Reilly's winery. All in all well worth the price we paid.
