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.
Gift card & gift voucher expiry
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.

Enjoy this unique Venetian Gondola experience on the River Torrens in the heart of beautiful Adelaide. Share a romantic moment with someone special gliding silently across placid waters. Take in the sights, the birdlife and indulge in some of Australia's finest sparkling wines along the way.
Imagine you and that special someone or your friends (up to six people) just drifting along the glassy waters of the River Torrens. Take in the city lights and the tree lined parks. Watch the graceful black swans and the ambience of the water birds. Sit back in the comfort of a Venetian built gondola, sipping premium Australian wines and watch the world go by. Listen to the silence, the opera or the gentle wash of the paddle.
This 1 hour cruise brings the romance of Venice right into the heart of Adelaide. Combine your cruise with a romantic dinner at a restaurant or bring your own picnic basket to enjoy along the way.
We operate all year round, seven days a week at any time throughout the day or night except for February 14. 24 hours notice is required (subject to availability).
The Venetian gondolas can seat up to 6 people and there are 3 available. A full wine list is available and wines can be ordered directly at the time of booking. No BYO alcohol is allowed however, you can bring your own picnic hamper.
Numbers on the Day
The price stated is for 2-6 people and does not include alcohol. 3 gondolas are available and each gondola can seat up to 6 people. 7 days notice is required for bookings of all 3 gondolas.
There are public walkways around the river so spectators can be expected.
Cruises are available in most weather conditions except for heavy rain, very strong winds or localised thunderstorms. Contact us if you would like to confirm your cruise, otherwise, the team will be in contact with you should your cruise need to be rescheduled if cancelled due to bad weather.
Dress as you please and according to the weather. You can dress casual if you like or put on something more formal for that special occasion. Good clothes are OK in the gondola.
These are the only real Venetian gondolas in Australia!
