Hot Air Balloon Ride Over Gold Coast Hinterland

Start your day with a private transfer from your hotel to the Gold Coast Hinterland. Watch the hot air balloon get ready for flight, then, soar across Australia's diverse landscapes as the sun rises. Experience the calm of ballooning, with changing views of scenic landscapes and the feel of drifting in vast open skies. Marvel at the ancient Gondwana Rainforests, waterfalls like the shimmering Purling Brook Falls, and quaint villages such as Tamborine Mountain and Canungra, nestled amid the undulating green. This is a birdwatcher's paradise. Keep an eye out for the radiant rainbow lorikeet, the nimble regent bowerbird, and the elusive Albert's lyrebird, each adding their distinct symphony to the forest below. The Gold Coast Hinterland, part of the Scenic Rim, is an ancient volcanic caldera, a treasure trove of rich biodiversity waiting to be discovered from the skies.

Gourmet Breakfast & Wine Exploration at O'Reilly's Vineyard

Post-flight, get whisked away to the renowned O'Reilly's Vineyard nestled amid the rolling green hills of the Hinterland. Here, amidst rows of carefully nurtured vines, you'll partake in a lavish 3-course gourmet breakfast. Each bite is enhanced when paired with a glass of Australian sparkling wine, a product of the very vines surrounding you. O'Reilly's Vineyard is steeped in history and viticultural excellence, housed in a beautifully preserved Queenslander structure. Beyond wine, the estate offers delightful encounters – from friendly alpacas that graze the grounds to strolls by the Canungra Creek.
