Hot Air Balloon Down Under is the Gold Coast’s and Queensland’s longest operating hot air balloon business and one of the oldest in Australia. We are proud members of The Gold Coast Best Tours and are the only ballooning business on the Gold Coast to be awarded for excellence by the Australian Tourism Industry. A finalist in the Supreme Hospitality Awards, we were also recently awarded the Hospitality Award for “Outstanding Courtesy and Service to the Gold Coast Tourist Industry”.
Bernhard Weibel purchased Balloon Down Under and it still operates as a family business here on the Gold Coast. With the families relaxed, easy manner and professionalism they will calm even the most nervous first time balloon flyers.
“The trip was early in the morning. The air was calm and the view breathtaking. Pilot very experienced and a happy person.”
Throughout the years of flying over the Gold Coast we have accrued an impeccable safety record. All of our pilots are among the best and most experienced balloon pilots in the country. All are highly trained and fully CASA licensed.
We operate under a Air Operators Certificate, issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and all passengers are covered by compulsory Civil Aviation (Carriers Liability) and ground risks insurances.
Our sponsored balloons feature Remax, Elgas, Air Asia, Gotalk, Sirromet and other corporate advertisers. If you are interested in getting your name up on our balloons, come and talk to us!
All of our hot air balloons are the latest designs and use the most recent satellite GPS & radio technology to ensure safe and picturesque flights.
