What to Expect

Get the best of both worlds on this exhilarating tour! With an early start, you'll witness a spectacular balloon inflation display. You'll have time to meet the friendly crew before floating up into the sky. The hot air balloon ride departs from Hinterland, a specially chosen location that provides the opportunity to fly higher than coastal flights because of stable and reliable weather conditions.


As the hot air balloon inflates and you board the flight, you'll be able to watch the sunrise over the rolling hills of the majestic Gold Coast hinterland. Enjoy sweeping views of Tamborine Mountain, Lamington National Park, and, if you look out east, the tall towers of the Gold Coast skyline. The hot air balloon ride is slow, steady, and quiet. The perfect way to start your morning. To top off the flight, you'll be handed a glass of crisp, cold sparkling bubbles and enjoy a delicious hot breakfast in the ambience of O'Reilly's Vineyard's historic Grand Homestead with its high ceilings and wide relaxing verandahs. The extensive grounds stretch along the banks of the Canungra Creek are perfect to enjoy after a stunning hot air balloon ride.


With pick up and drop off included, you'll make your way to the 1.5 hour jet ski safari part of the tour. You'll start with a quick safety induction to learn how to ride the jet ski. Then it's full speed ahead for the exhilarating part of the tour! Blast your way along the beautiful sub-tropical shores of South Stradbroke Island. The jet ski tour travels north for a good 20 kilometres, weaving your way past beautiful islands, beaches, sandbars, and through mangroves. The tour stops at a tropical beach bar on South Stradbroke Island for refreshments before turning back to ride the 20 kilometres back to home base. Embrace the salty ocean wind in your hair! Total time for the combined tours is 10 hours.
