What to Expect

    The early morning alarm clock will be worth it for the exciting and scenic hot air ballooning adventure over the Gold Coast hinterland. The morning starts with pick-up from selected Gold Coast hotels – times will vary based on the season but might be as early as 4:30 am. Not to worry though, you can take a nap on the air-condition coach transfers to the hot air balloon launch site. 


    When you arrive at the launch site, you'll be able to watch the fantastic hot air balloon inflation display. Then, it's time to board for takeoff! A wonderful team of knowledgeable pilots are guiding your balloon. They have some amazing facts to share about hot air ballooning and will be ready and waiting to answer all your questions and have a bit of fun.


    The Gold Coast hinterland is an area of beautiful waterfalls, stunning mountain vistas and hidden retreats. As the sun rises over the coast, it casts a warm glow over this spectacular scenery as you drift quietly over the landscape. It's a genuinely excellent way to start the day. 


    After your flight, it's a short drive to O'Reilly's Grand Homestead & Boutique Vineyard. You'll have exclusive access to the vineyard, where you can relax in the historic surroundings with a glass of champagne to toast your morning. Enjoy a delicious, fresh breakfast as you revel in the serenity of the vineyard on the verandah of this picturesque grand Queenslander.


    After breakfast, you will have time to visit the premium boutique cellar doors, where you can do some wine tasting. The cellar door tastings showcase all of the Canungra Valley Vineyard wines, including Chambourcin, Semillon, Shiraz, Verdelho and more. There is no cost for tasting, and you are welcome to purchase wines to take home as well. 


    Finally, it's time for the journey back to your pick-up point on the Gold Coast. Alternatively, you can choose to be dropped off at one of the theme parks or shopping centres – just advise your preference when you book.
