Pre dawn pick up

Here at Hot Air we know how to execute your perfect, unique proposal to that someone special. Hot Air ballooning is one of the most romantic things to do in Brisbane. We can help you plan your special occasion so it all goes nice and smoothly on the day. 

Our highly professional driver will pick you and your partner up from your Brisbane accomodation in our Luxury private vehicle and whisk you away, enjoy the scenic drive to the Hinterland to the balloon take off site. 


Arrive to the balloon launch site to witness the huge balloons coming to life before your eyes. Your driver will introduce you to our highly skilled pilot who will get you ready for take off. 


Float above the clouds and see below a patchwork panorama that brings new sights everyday. Watch for a variety of birdlife and take in the peace and serenity that is ballooning, the ultimate romantic gesture your partner is bound to be in awe of the whole experience. 

If you wish to pop the big question in the basket we will let our pilot know to ensure you are situated in the basket with enough space to do so. Or if you wish to choose to just soak up your balloon flight and keep the suspense going you could propose either by the creek or between the rows of grape vines as your back drop at O'Reilly's Vineyard.


Following the flight you will meet back with your driver for a transfer back through the Hinterland, arrive at O'Reilly's Vineyard for breakfast on the verandah of the Grand homestead with views of the working vineyard and glass of sparkling wine to toast your memorable morning. 

Enjoy your choice of either a scrumptious 3 course breakfast at your own private table or a Picnic basket by the river (please advise which you would like upon booking). Our breakfast is a real highlight!  We have exclusive access to O'Reillys Canungra Valley Vineyard - take a sneak peak at our virtual tour.  All yours as you relax in the serenity of the vineyard on the verandah of this picturesque grand Queenslander.

Return - you decide

Maybe a stroll after breakfast behind the Grand homestead to see the flowing creek! Don't forget to sample some locally made wines and the cellar door. Return private transfer is available of course but , please advise your driver when you wish to depart for your accommodation.

We will capture some lovely pictures of you before your flight and then again during the flight from our special balloon remote controlled camera.

An outstanding group of people ensuring the best day of our lives.

I contacted Hot Air to book a hot air balloon ride for myself and my partner on our anniversary to propose to her during the flight. Unfortunately, as the day approached, the weather did not seem like it wanted to play along. The staff at Hot Air went the extra mile and were extremely accommodating; answering my several phone calls to organise contingency plans and ensure every detail was set before the day. They even contacted me and prepared a back-up plan should we not be able to fly on the balloon due to weather.

Our pilot also went the extra mile, allowing me to leave a banner I had made with the big question on it for his collection the day before at a restaurant while he was in Brisbane! With his 24 years of ballooning experience, he was an absolute pro, ensuring that we not only were able to fly but that the plan went off without a hitch! Our driver, Kelly, also was fantastic on the day, showing us how well-rounded he was with his bi-lingual talents!

I could not have asked for anything better, thank you to everyone who made it happen!
