Select tour language
View a sunrise with a difference, whilst floating in a hot air balloon over the Hinterland. Breathe in the wide-open spaces and be amazed at the colorful spectacle of other balloons in the morning sky. After landing, enjoy hot air balloon pack-up games followed by a hearty breakfast with champagne at O'Reilly's Grand Homestead and Boutique Vineyard.
  • A scenic hot air balloon ride over the Gold Coast (choice of two flight lengths)
  • A home cooked breakfast with a glass of sparkling wine
  • Enjoy access to O’Reilly’s Grand Homestead and Vineyard
  • Complimentary hotel pickup and drop-off from your hotel
What to Expect
Start your day with a hot air balloon ride over the Gold Coast’s countryside. Receive a complimentary pickup from your hotel and head straight to your balloon for take-off. Watch the massive balloon inflate with hot air before hopping aboard its sturdy basket and soaring over the gorgeous Gold Coast countryside, over vineyards, lakes, and forests. Learn about each sight as you pass over while aboard your flight (choose flight length option at booking). Once back on the ground, help pack up the balloon and then head over to O’Reilly’s Grand Homestead for a home cooked breakfast of Australian favorites. Round out the trip with a glass of sparkling wine while enjoying a tour of the estate and its cellar filled with their local wines. Return back to your hotel after a fun-filled morning with complimentary drop-off service.

Would highly recommend the ride over the hinterland. Our trip was well organised & the change of the breakfast venue due to the dreadful fires & smoke was all handled very well. Complements to our driver, Scott, & pilot, Ben - both very professional, friendly & informative.
