  • Description

    Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above the Outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert on this awe-inspiring ballooning adventure. 

    • 60 minute balloon flight
    • Flight certificate
    • Champagne and refreshments
    • Return transfers from Alice Springs

    Journey to the launch site in the cool pre dawn darkness and begin the ascent just as the morning light begins to illuminate the rugged MacDonnell Ranges. Float gently across the vast expanse of the Central Australian outback – keeping an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic red kangaroo and gain an appreciation of the remoteness of the area as the balloon glides across the landscape.

    After landing, passengers may become involved in assisting the crew as they pack the nylon balloon back into its bag or may prefer to take photographs, the choice is theirs.

    At the ballooning landing site, there is time to enjoy the desert tranquility as light refreshments accompanied by Australian sparkling wine and tropical fruit juice are served. There is an opportunity to purchase ballooning souvenirs and a commemorative flight certificate is given to all participants.

    Please note: Depending on many operational factors, which vary each day, passengers may be on the ground or in the balloon when the sun is actually coming over the horizon or rising, either way they will still see an amazing dawn.

    A great adventure, fantastic sun rise, great pilot, informative, smooth lending, felt perfectly safe at all times. My wife an two friends went in the chase van and had a great time bouncing along the outback track folowing the balloon. My wife said she was having a better time than I was. Something I would do again (fantastic fun).
