Your Hot Air Ballooning Experience Package

Hot Air Balloons Up Up and Away!


Hot air balloons are unique from all other forms of flight because there is no physical sensation of movement or perception of wind.

You are traveling with the gentle air currents that layer the sky. In contrast to standing on a building or structure, there is no fear of height because your eyes have no linear perspective to judge distance from the ground.

The feeling is one of peace and tranquility as the earth seems to slowly descend and rotate below.

Within moments after lift off, you become completely at ease while you effortlessly drift over the treetops & float over the countryside in panoramic harmony with nature.

Floating up in the air feels like a once in a lifetime experience, helping you to blow away and forget all of the problems and troubles that you have in the world, for a few hours at least. Breath-taking is the word!

Up Up And Away!

Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly, we can fly
Up, up and away My beautiful, my beautiful balloon

(Song Lyrics 'Up, Up And Away' by The Fifth Dimension)

Wonderful Retreat!

5 Star TripAdvisor Review

Mt Tamborine offers a variety of experiences from walking tracks through rainforest, swimming holes, waterfalls, glowworm caves, wineries and on it goes.

The cottages are a gem near the Witches Falls Track. Beautifully presented with everything you could want including a hamper breakfast, spa bath, wifi, and enough cooking equipment to be self-contained if you desire.

Loved the entire experience and the wonderful hosts were friendly but left us alone to enjoy the peace and quiet unless we needed anything.

Would highly recommend these beautiful cottages for a stay.

Perfect Getaway

5 Star TripAdvisor Review

My (now) fiance organised this trip as a surprise engagement. I could not have imagined a more perfect spot. The cottage was gorgeous with the spa bath and fire place. And the fresh made bread every morning was fantastic (and still warm). Witches Falls Cottages will always hold a special place in my heart.

I plan to visit again and will recommend to my friends and family.

Wonderful relaxing private getaway

5 Star TripAdvisor Review

Wonderful hosts at Witches Falls and have plenty of recommendations, Very private and relaxing cottages, wonderful breakfast hampers and a great area to relax and unwind.

Bush Walks, Good Food in the area , short stroll to village and winery with great restaurant, very private spa area that gives you the outdoors feeling in a glass roof area and open onto private garden.

Highly recommend and we will be back, My wife had a great massage lady come to the cabin and you can do a lot or do a little. Mt Tamborine is a great place to relax and Witches Cottages is the ideal base.

Great local coffee provided in room with plunger also provided.

The perfect rustic cottages

5 Star TripAdvisor Review

My husband and I had two nights at the Witches Falls Cottages. We wanted a rustic type cottage and that is what we got. There was nothing left out that we could have requested. The breakfast hamper was huge and delicious. The warm freshly made bread was a real treat.

We did a two night indulgence package which included a dinner out , chocolates and wine tasting, also a tasting at a distillery plus some sample tasting bottles from the local area. There was a fire place, a huge double spa, indoor and outdoor table seating for two, music, TV and a comfortable bed and air conditioner.

The owners were friendly and helpful and we will be back at another time. The area is lovely for hiking and exploring.
