What a wonderful sensation floating gently up to an altitude of about 5,500 feet over the Gold Coast hinterland. We saw the sunrise on one side and a rainbow on the other. The morning ended with a lovely champagne breakfast.

Great trip and worth the early morning start. Very professional and impressed with the way they adjusted and adapted to the changing weather conditions. Tip: Bring a hat / cap - it is hot underneath the burners!
