My partner and I flew with hot air gold coast on the 10th July. At sunrise in perfect weather with AMAZING views we drifted over the hinterland. It was an unforgettable experience. And even with about 10 others in our balloon, we had our own space and moment when my partner proposed! I don't think anyone else really even knew.... More

When you arrive at the launch site, you catch your breathe at the SIZE of the balloons and it is hard not to get excited as the jets of firey gas fill them! I watched dawn break... More

The experience at Hot air balloon was fun,exciting and unique . Took the Hot air balloon on July 1 2014 at one of the sites in Lamington National Park. One of things to note is to wear additional clothing as the weather is extremely cold in the morning !!!! The scenery around Lamington National Park was VA VA Boom .......... More

Hot air Balloon was an amazing experience right from the start at Gold coast Hinterland to O'Rielly's vineyard. The jovial and warm welcoming nature of the staff was truly a great beginning to the trip. It was the smoothest air travel I have ever done in life..!! We could not believe the balloon has taken off the ground until we... More

Hot air balloon has always been on my list of must-do-at-least-once-in-a-lifetime, and Thanks to hotair, on 1st July 2014, I finally did it! Pilot and the crews were very entertaining, and to my surprise, there was no anxiety at all throughout the whole trip (I thought I'd have freaked out once the balloon took off :p) The pilot informed us...

I've always wanted to take a hot-air balloon and wonder what it's like to go so up high in the sky (we literally went 4000ft above the ground)! Even my parents and grandparents (who are afraid of heights) enjoyed the breathtaking scenery! The air was fresh, the sun was up and the whole scene was literally beautiful. The service provided...

We had a great morning with stunning scenery below us during our hot air balloon ride. The weather was perfect- blue skies and light breezes. The pick up and drop off were on time from our collection point. The Champagne Buffet Breakfast at O'Reillys winery was absolutely delicious and the gardens and free wine tasting was an extra bonus! half... More
