General Comments

As the dawn light slowly creeps across the Gold Coast you will experience the oldest and most romantic form of aviation in the world.

You can 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. This is the most amazing way to see the marvellous Gold Coast area.

You are about to experience the romance and adventure of the oldest form of flight, in a hot air balloon. To make your experience enjoyable and memorable, here are some helpful hints.

Balloons only fly once a day, just after sunrise when the breezes are at their calmest, early morning starts are essential. Casual clothing is suggested, and closed toed shoes are a good idea as sometimes the balloon will launch and land in a paddock with long wet grass. It is no colder up in the air than it is when you walk out of your front door, so just wear what you are warm and comfortable in. Layers are a good idea as it gets warmer as the morning proceeds. Don't forget sunglasses, camera, and a hat if needed.

After the flight and balloon pack-up, it is off to Chelo's Restaurant for a lovely champagne, full buffet breakfast. The story of the history of ballooning and why champagne is part of ballooning is followed by the presentation of your personal Flight Certificate; the ceremony will be enjoyed by all. In flight photos and others of the morning are available for purchase on CD.

Total tour time is approximately four, to four and a half hours.
