Equally thrilling and relaxing, a hot-air ballooning adventure is a pure and unforgettable experience – especially over the beautiful Atherton Tablelands. Depending on the wind direction, your flight will take you over the river allowing unparalleled views of the spectacular skyline, beautiful parks and gardens, tree lined towns and rolling countryside. The still morning air makes flying conditions perfect during what is known in the hot-air ballooning industry as the "weather window", a gloriously peaceful time.
The hot-air ballooning journey begins with a briefing by the pilot before you head to the launch site and, if you like, help prepare the hot-air balloon for flight. Thirty minutes later you'll be drifting gracefully over the countryside. The hot-air ballooning flight itself will last around half an hour.
After gently touching down again a hot air ballooning flight certificate is distributed to all passengers, rounding off a fabulous adventure.
Hot Air Balloon flights take place at sunrise. The exact time of your Hot Air Balloon flight experience will vary based upon the time of year and will be sent to you upon booking.
This is a Hot Air Balloon Flight for 1 (there will be others in the balloon basket with you).
