There are so many great spots on the Gold Coast to go and watch an early morning sunrise. But nothing can compare to the stunning and jaw dropping view from a Hot air balloon as it floats above a sleepy Gold Coast.
Thanks to the guys from Scenic Day Tour Group and Balloon Aloft Gold Coast we were lucky to experience what we believe is one of the most enjoyable activities on the coast. Cruising at a steady 15 knots and 1000ft up in the air we saw everything from iconic landmarks like Metricon stadium and Q1, to the marshlands and green fields of northern Gold Coast. Pictures and videos are stunning but there's something surreal and beautiful about the experience that you need to see in person.
The trip took over just over an hour and saw us depart from The Mercure resort in Carrara and land in the green and lush fields of Jacob's Well. After such an amazing flight we were treated to a delicious champagne buffet breakfast back at the Mercure. We highly recommend this for anyone wanting to see the Gold Coast from a different point of view and capture some lifetime memories. It would make a great surprise gift idea and with Mother's Day just around the corner, it's time to start booking.
