My fiance' and I thoroughly enjoyed our hot air balloon ride over the beautiful Gold Coast hinterland. It was perfect weather and visibility was great! The crew was great and entertaining! The buffet breakfast afterwards was also exceptional! I highly recommend this experience to everyone no matter what your age.

Thank you again Hot Air :)

“A Beautiful Intimate Proposal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

My partner and I flew with hot air gold coast on the 10th July. At sunrise in perfect weather with AMAZING views we drifted over the hinterland. It was an unforgettable experience. And even with about 10 others in our balloon, we had our own space and moment when my partner proposed! I don't think anyone else really even knew. It was perfect!
The warm bus travelling to and from the site was an extra bonus and the champagne breakfast topped of the morning beautifully! Thank you!!!!!!!

“Rising into the sky at dawn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

Sure you are up at the crack of dawn, but you are quickly settled into your charted bus, learning about these amazing crafts. When you arrive at the launch site, you catch your breathe at the SIZE of the balloons and it is hard not to get excited as the jets of firey gas fill them! I watched dawn break over the mountains as we rose to the sky silently and drifted through the horizon. Sound romantic? It sure is! Then we had a champagne breakfast! If you have a loved one's birthday coming I suggest surprising them with this experience and memory. They won't be disappointed!

“Amazing experience, memorable day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

The experience at Hot air balloon was fun,exciting and unique . Took the Hot air balloon on July 1 2014 at one of the sites in Lamington National Park. One of things to note is to wear additional clothing as the weather is extremely cold in the morning !!!! The scenery around Lamington National Park was VA VA Boom ....... my partner and i were able to enjoy the beauty of the sun rise.
The most memorable experience i had in gold coast was having breakfast at O'Rielly's vineyard. The breakfast was filling, the scrambled egg was amazing. I really enjoy the scenery around O'Rielly's vineyard...the ambience is so peaceful ...the sound of birds chirping brings so much joys into the heart. I highly recommend Hot Air Balloon Gold coast !!!

“A most memorable experience...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Hot air Balloon was an amazing experience right from the start at Gold coast Hinterland to O'Rielly's vineyard. The jovial and warm welcoming nature of the staff was truly a great beginning to the trip.
It was the smoothest air travel I have ever done in life..!! We could not believe the balloon has taken off the ground until we looked down to see the grass land was slowly getting away from us. The most striking feature of it was the silence which you could observe during the flight.
To have a bird's eye perspective on Gold coast flora and fauna was a truly marvellous experience. The sun rise from the mountains with a vast landscape was a magnificent view from above. At the end of the flight, we were greeted with champaign toast and tasty breakfast at O'Rielly's vineyard keeping up with the tradition that was from adhered from the beginning of Ballooning. It was followed by a fabulous wine tasting of O'Rielly's elegant wines.
All together, it is a chance never to miss when you are in Gold coast. Looking forward to have the same experience with Hot air in Cairns soon..
