Experience a different perspective and pace of life with a breath-taking morning balloon flight on the Gold Coast. As you climb higher in tandem with the rising sun, so the bold contrast of the city and sea becomes apparent as the mosaic of the striking skyline, weaving waterways and ribbons of golden sand unfolds below you. All with the backdrop of the magnificent Pacific Ocean.

Every flight is different and so is every adventure overhead. So with the breeze as your guide, you might drift over Surfer’s paradise, be able to see the Q1 building from above, float silently over Royal Pines Golf Course, be intrigued by the muddle of waterways of the Gold Coast or even float northward to the Sea World Resort on the skinny Southport Split.

Once back on the ground, you might go for the optional gourmet breakfast at the Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast, before having the remainder the day to ease back into the reality of life on the ground and take advantage of all that the area has to offer. But for sure, you’ll also spend a lot of the day looking wistfully up at the sky, knowing that you’ve danced with the wind and seen the Gold Coast from a vantage point that is like no other.



Let's Get Aloft!

Once you've arrived at your Gold Coast balloon launch, the expert team will get to work prepping the balloon; this of course includes inflating the giant envelope (the big round bit at the top!), and ensuring all equipment is double-checked for fitting and safety. After which, it's time to hop aboad the basket and really start to feel those emotions and anticipation start to pulse.


Float with the Wind!

Jaw-dropping views await, along with an incredible feeling of freedom. Whatever nerves you may have had, have been left far below on the ground, and the sensation of floating above the world is igniting your senses in a way few things in life can do! With the breeze as your personal guide, drift lazily along and capture epic panoramas from a vantage point that is truly unique.


Celebrate Awesome!

With your balloon flight coming to an end, your pilot and ground crew will decide on a landing spot, where you will come back down to earth with the most gentlest of bumps. You will feel elated and be grinning from ear to ear! A balloon ride really is a bucket list item, and you will have just ticked it off - what feeling! Time to celebrate your achievement with a hearty breakfast and a champagne toast?
