Itinerary
Make your way to the Metro Hotel Ipswich bright and early to meet your balloon captain and guide, and then transfer to the launch site, where you can help inflate the massive balloon, if you wish. Climb into the basket and take off over Queensland's landscape as the sun begins to rise.

These aerial views are otherwise only obtained through pricy plane or helicopter rides, but this hot air balloon option gets the same vantage point and allows you to enjoy the fresh air of the Australian outdoors. Snap photos of the Ipswich countryside and watch the sun rise over the Scenic Rim, home to no fewer than six national parks. Listen to your guide's commentary on the historical background, environment, and cultural features of the area. Take in views of the Great Dividing Range before landing for a sparkling wine toast. Then, dig in to a breakfast at a local restaurant.
