Happy New Year to our lovely collective friends, guests, random readers, fellow internet nerds and general community. And no, we’re not a bit late. We’re wishing a happy Chinese New Year of which the celebrating begins today.

As part of the Chinese New Year Celebrations, this year the Gold Coast City have organized a hot air balloon rides where you can watch the sunrise. After that, you will be taken to O’Reilly’s Vineyard where you can relax with a glass of crisp, cold sparkling bubbles and enjoy a delicious hot breakfast in the gracious ambience of O’Reilly’s Vineyard’s historic Grand Homestead with its high ceilings & wide relaxing verandahs.

There is no better way to celebrate the Year of the Horse than floating over the spectacular scenery of the Gold Coast hinterland which is home to some of the best horse properties in Australia. Enjoy the celebrations and take lots of photos, see the many different coloured hot air balloons and enjoy free wine tasting too.

Rides will be available from today, January 17 until February 9 and spaces will be limited to organize your tickets quick smart.
