We fly on average between 1,500 to 5,000 thousand feet above the ground, giving you the best possible views of our beautiful hinterland and beaches.
Generally it doesn’t get much colder than what it is on the ground. You don’t feel any wind because you are moving at the same speed as the wind. We also find that the burner acts as an excellent provider of heat.
Hot Air Ballooning Civil Aviation policy states that if you are over 12 weeks pregnant you cannot fly.
We have highly experienced Hot Air Balloon pilots from all over the world, so we are proud to say that we are the only specialists who fly over our beautiful Gold Coast waterways and skyline.
We also love to showcase diversity of our South East Queensland region, the contrast between the Green forested mountains with our Golden beaches, so depending on the weather we can take you on either of these two magnificent adventures, and sometimes even both!
We use PayPal for any payments. PayPal is safer than using a credit card. The data is encrypted for extra protection against fraud and identity theft.
We can pick you up from most hotels on the Gold Coast.
However, anywhere South of Broadbeach or North Labrador you will need to meet us at the Mercure Gold Coast Resort, Palm Meadows Drive, Carrara or any of the main hotels within our transfer zone.
Can I self drive or join you at the Hot Air Balloon meeting point?
You can make your way or self drive to one of the main hotels within our complimentary transfer zone. Or you can meet us at the Mercure Resort Gold Coast, Palm Meadows Drive, Carrara. Just notify us on booking where you would like us to pick you up.
Although you get to experience the lovely warmth of the Hot Air Balloon Burners, some mornings can be a little cool. We recommend you wear a jumper or jacket that you can take off if you want as the morning goes on. We also recommend that you wear closed in shoes but this is not absolutely necessary if you do not have them.
NO SCARVES PLEASE.
And don’t forget to bring that adventurous smile!
