Balloon Down Under

For the highlight of your holiday join Balloon Down Under for the romance and adventure of a wonderful hot air balloon flight over the Gold Coast.

Float gently with the winds for one hour, 1,500 – 2,000 feet above the Gold Coast. The experience is amazing - it's like being on a magic carpet ride, with incredible views from Brisbane to Byron and over the whole of the Gold Coast. We fly every day of the year (weather permitting), always early in the morning when we float with the gentle winds at sunrise.

The family owned Balloon Down Under is the longest established ballooning company in Queensland, with over 25 years experience and a 100% safety record.

Complimentary return transfers are available to Gold Coast visitors. Also includes welcoming tea/coffee/biscuits on the launch field, bottle of cool water after the flight, and a lovely champagne breakfast at the 5 star Lakeview Restaurant at Palm Meadows Golf Club – the perfect place to sit back and savour your wonderful morning. Enjoy the story of the history of ballooning and why we have champagne after each balloon flight, followed by the presentation of your personalised flight certificate

The memories will last forever!

Your Hot Air Balloon Flight
We fly over the Gold Coast area for a wonderful 1 hour balloon flight every morning at sunrise weather permitting.

Your Balloon Down Under Experience begins just before sunrise. Ballooning everywhere in Australia is always an early morning activity, because that is when the winds are at their most gentle.
Once aboard the wicker basket your magical flight begins. The launch is so gentle you will not even realise that you have left the ground. The peace and gentleness of ballooning will surprise you and the views are outstanding. Your pilot will point out all the Gold Coast landmarks and places of interest as the flight proceeds.

Drifting gently over the Gold Coast landscape for one hour allows you ample time to take in the panoramic views of the Gold Coast from skimming over the tree tops to up to 2,000 feet high. Your pilot will point out all the points of interest and the landmarks seen from the balloon as he steers the balloon to its landing site.

Steering the balloon is achieved by the pilot changing height, so as to use the varying wind speeda and direction found at varying heights. Your pilot can rotate the balloon during the flight so that everyone gets to see all the views.

Our exclusive "flying" camera will record your flight from its very unusual location, with all the pictures available for purchase on a CD after the flight.

After the balloon lands we invite all our passengers to join the crew in the fun of the balloon pack-up.
