RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.

Taking a flying lesson over Caloundra! This complete half hour introductory flight lets you take control of a super sporty light aircraft. With superb visibility and comfort, your views will stretch right down the coast to the hinterland down to an awesome 500ft low level rush!
Your flight will start with you getting to know your aircraft. After your briefing your instructor will take you through the pre-flight inspection of the aircraft before you're strapped into the co-pilot's seat. Listen carefully as your instructor talks you through start up and the rules and technique in taxiing. He'll guide the craft into the sky and the next thing you know you're in the sky for the unmistakable, irreplaceable experience of flying! When up to 2-3000 feet in the air you'll get the chance to actually control the aircraft! How amazing - actually being in control as two human beings soar above the earth. Reach dizzying heights and learn how to steer this awesome flying machine. Toward the end hand control back over to the pilot for an exhilarating low-level experience down Australia's most beautiful stretch of golden coast. Now that's an experience!
This flight is available most of the day, 364 days a year. Allow 60 minutes all together.
This experience has a maximum weight of 110kgs and a max height of 203cm (6'5"). People with heart problems should seek medical advice prior.
If the weather is bad we won't fly - we'd never compromise your safety. We'll let you know hopefully 3 hours or more in advance if we need to reschedule (no cost).
You just need closed in shoes.
This experience flies out of Caloundra Airport, just five minutes from the Caloundra town centre.
