This experience was awesome! It was my first hot air balloon flight and it was just magnificent. The view was insane! The hot air balloon captain mentioned that they usually take the tourists to the mountainous/forest area depending on the wind but during that day he took us over the Gold Coast area - so imagine the view we had oh and it was during sunrise too... a must try and experience especially for those who love to take in beautiful scenery and views. Make sure you take lots of pictures!
