What to Expect
After an early pick-up from your Gold Coast hotel, a spectacular balloon inflation display is just the start of your morning ballooning.
Meet the friendly and fun crew, then float up to watch the sunrise over the rolling hills of the majestic Gold Coast hinterland; enjoy sweeping views of Tamborine Mountain, Lamington National Park and to the east see the shimmering tall towers of the Gold Coast skyline.
The Hinterland is a specially chosen location providing the opportunity to fly higher than coastal flights. Plus, more stable and reliable weather conditions means many more flying days per year for your pleasure.
To top your special morning off, relax with a glass of crisp, cold sparkling wine and enjoy a delicious hot breakfast in the gracious ambience of O'Reilly's Vineyard's historic Grand Homestead with its high ceilings & wide relaxing verandahs. Stroll the grounds and the tranquil setting or enjoy a visit and complimentary tastings at the Cellar Door all included as part of your flight.
After breakfast, you will join a fun and truly memorable small-group wine tour of the Gold Coast Hinterland wine country. You’ll visit four charming, boutique wineries, indulge in a two-course lunch at a winery, hear stories and learn tidbits of local history, culture and winemaking.
These tours are sure to entertain with a very approachable and easy-going style. Discover and savour new experiences while tasting some of the region’s most celebrated wines.
