Flying High - Hot Air Balloon

The Hot Air Balloon Specialists

Hot Air Balloon & Vineyard Champagne Breakfast & Stay at Tamborine Mountain – Family owned, Hot Air Balloon Scenic Rim flies every day. If you’re looking for things to do on a Mount Tamborine short break, combine a morning floating up, up and combine your time away with Hot Air Balloon Scenic Rim and a stay in a delightful Tamborine Mountain cottage or Bed & Breakfast; it’s the perfect combination. See the balloons inflate to their majestic height, gently take off to see amazing scenery with 360 degree views from the rainforest to the valleys to Lamington National Park back to Mount Tamborine.

Whether you’re staying in a delightful cottage, a relaxing Bed & Breakfast, camping, a cosy cabin or a glamorous retreat, it’s just a 12 km drive from your Mount Tamborine accommodation, to our balloon launch site, specifically chosen for its temperate weather. A hot air balloon ride fits best into your time if you plan ahead and come ballooning as your first thing to do, before check-in at Mount Tamborine accommodation or on your last morning, at check-out, as ballooning is sure to guarantee your stay starts or finishes on a top note!

Family owned, Hot Air Balloon Scenic Rim flies every day. Our hot air balloon take-offs are so gentle, that quite often our passengers don’t realize the balloons have lifted off. See the horizon expand and breathe in all the mountain fresh air as everyone has a “window” seat in our wicker baskets!

mini-golf-for-all-agesMini Golf Course

Great golfers, good golfers and people who aren’t golfers at all can get into the swing on the Championship Mini Golf Course at Thunderbird Park.

People of all ages from kids to seniors can head to the hills, catch the cool Tamborine Mountain air and enjoy a round or two on the new course.

This course takes mini golf from an activity to an art form. It’s the real deal with water hazards, rock traps, bridges, bunkers and obstacles. Championship mini golf is all about fun but the competition can get serious.

There are three holes on each green. Opt to putt at beginners’ level, take the intermediate challenge or tackle the professional section. If play is the order of the day, just putt away and see how you go.

The Championship Mini Golf Course opened in January and has already proved very popular with holiday makers. Corporate groups, conference delegates and other teams can take the challenge.

Groups can also book The Edge Lounge. This is a delightful venue propped between the edge of the course and Cedar Creek to capture views of the TreeTop Challenge ropes course and rainforest surrounds.

The Championship Mini Golf Course is open every day from 8am to 8pm; games cost $12 per person. Groups of 15 people or more pay $10 per person.
