It is an early morning adventure, but well worth it when there are 2 or 3 balloons in the sky, and the skies are clear. Hot-air Balloons take you from the Gold Coast to a spot just south of Beaudesert where the balloons are inflated, the passengers stowed, and you are up, up and away.
For just over an hour you float along in the airstreams carefully guided up and down by the pilot watching a sunrise, and then the golden hour over the Gold Coast Hinterland.
The descent is next and takes some time to get right, before packing the equipment away, and heading to O'Reillys Vineyards for a champagne breakfast to celebrate the early start to the day.
