Sunrise Hot Air Balloon over the Gold Coast

Not keen on noisy chopper rotors? Then take to the skies in a serene hot air balloon ride. A pre-dawn departure will see you admire the verdant Gold Coast Hinterland as the first rays of sunshine peek over the horizon.

The fun doesn’t stop when you come back down to earth. Passengers indulge in a hearty hot breakfast with a glass of sparkling at the historic O’Reilly’s Vineyard Homestead. Keep the buzz humming with a wine tasting at their award-winning cellar door.
