Hot air balloon makes bizarre landing on the Gold Coast

Unusual scenes in Carrara this morning, after a hot air balloon landed on a roundabout.

Motorists travelling around the Gooding Drive roundabout were confused when the giant inflatable landed right in the middle of it just after 5.00am.

While the spectacle held up traffic briefly, emergency services weren’t called to the scene.

The 20 or so people on board looked to be safe and well, according to witnesses.

It’s understood hot air balloons have a deal with Gold Coast Council to utilise parks for take offs and landings, though… we’re not sure about roundabouts.

Either way – what a sight!
