Balloon Down Under

"See rain forests, waterfalls and crystal clear rock pools wisp past beneath you."

Overview

Join us for a memorable one hour balloon flight over the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland. Clean air and stunning views from Brisbane to Byron make this one of the premier ballooning areas in Australia.

Starting off in the outer suburbs, call out "Good Morning" as early morning farmers prepare for their days work, follow the kangaroos bounding through the bush below or cows wandering in for their early morning milking. Watch as the golfers enjoy an early round of golf on one of the many courses we fly over.

See rain forests, waterfalls and crystal clear rock pools wisp past beneath you. It's hard to comprehend that anything could be so untouched and at peace so close to the hustle and bustle of Australia's No.1 holiday playground.

Look back to where the high rise buildings of Surfers Paradise are silhouetted against the shimmering silver/blue Pacific Ocean and the golden coastline.

After the flight, join us at the beautiful Palm Meadows Golfing Resort for breakfast. Choose their special fresh fruit platter, or tuck into hearty eggs and bacon, cooked many different ways. This is served with champagne and fresh orange juice - a tradition of ballooning. The Flight Certificate presentation will be enjoyed by all.

The Pilot

Our Chief Pilot, David Parkes, has been flying balloons over the Gold Coast hinterland for 17 years and has enjoyed a 100% safety record for his entire flying career. David finds something magical about floating through the air in silent, peaceful pose and clearly enjoys it as much today as he ever did. Much of this can be attributed to the obvious enjoyment his passengers get from the flight. David's relaxed, easy manner and professionalism will calm even the most nervous first timers as he points out the interesting features along the way.

The Flight

You will be invited to assist the Pilot and Crew to prepare the balloon for flight. Once aboard the wicker basket, your magical flight begins. The launch is so gentle, you will not even realise you have left the ground. The peace and gentleness of ballooning will surprise you and the views are outstanding.

Refunds/Cancellations

As your comfort and safety are our primary considerations we will not fly if the weather conditions are deemed unsuitable – primarily if it is too windy or too wet. If we are weathered out we will reschedule your flight to another date that suits you. If this is not possible a full refund of any payments made will be given. Cancellations by you must be made no later than 48 hours prior to the flight to allow us to re-sell your spot. "No-shows" on the day of the flight and late cancellations will not be refunded.
