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.

Get a sweet introduction into the wonderful world of bees during this hands-on beekeeping experience. Suited up head-to-toe in a beekeeping outfit, you will discover the life of a beekeeper, the workings of an operational hive, the bees busy at work and more. Take home a goodie bag of honey treats.
Located in the heart of suburban Brisbane, this apiary is nestled amongst large established Australian native trees, gorgeous wildflowers and lovely garden flowers allowing the bees to produce wonderfully unique multi-floral honey products. On arrival, you will meet the master beekeeper and be suited up in a white protective triple layer ventilated beekeeping outfit. Looking the part, you'll head over to the apiary where you'll be given advice on staying calm and what to expect during your encounter. Discover the workings of an operational productive hive, see the smoking process, open their beehive home and check out the busy bees doing their thing. You'll have the opportunity to observe a flow hive, top bar hive and a langstroth hive, and be shown the different stages of bee development. Remember to look out for the queen bee as you peak inside. Best bee-lieve you'll leave with a wealth of new knowledge!
Rich in biodiversity, bees forage happily on the area’s flowering native flora such as the abundant and medicinal manuka (leptospermum scoparium), bright orange poicinana (delonix regia) and bloodwood gum (corymbia gummifera). The flavour of resulting honey is ever-changing with the strong seasonal variation, unlike monofloral varieties often found elsewhere. This results in a honey with a completely distinctive and unrepeatable flavour profile. As part of the day you will spin off your own honey to take home from frames of uncapped honeycomb that has come straight from the beehive!
