    Take to the skies for an incredible hot air ballooning adventure flying over Canberra in this weekday sunrise flight. Hot air balloon flight is a unique thrill that you need to experience for yourself, and this is the perfect place to do it. 

    Your adventure begins in the early hours of the morning with a briefing from your pilot before you head to the launch site. If you're up for it, you can help prepare the hot air balloon for the flight and enjoy a hands-on aspect of your experience. 

    Once you've lifted off, your journey will depend on the wind direction. Soar over Canberra city and lake and enjoy amazing views of the Canberra skyline, suburbs, parklands and countryside as the sun rises over the city. The hot air balloon ride will be about one hour of thrilling flight, floating with the wind and sweeping over the landscape.

    After gently touching down again a hot air ballooning flight certificate is distributed to all passengers, rounding off an exhilarating adventure. Cheers to your experience with a glass of sparkling wine (or juice for the kids) while you're still buzzing from your thrilling hot air balloon flight.

    Awesome balloon flight over Canberra. We were lucky enough to have the balloon to ourselves which made the experience even more personal. The pilot, Dave, and ground crew, Alex, were very friendly and most importantly very experienced and safety conscious. A great flight taking us directly over all of the Canberra sights and landing without a bump. I'd do it again!!

    A thoroughly enjoyable experience on a cold, but clear, Canberra day. Sadly we missed the lake and "central Canberra" but that was on the exigency of the winds. Good flight, excellent briefing, expert pilot, soft landing in a paddock. Expert Pilot and ground crew. Fun to help with the flight "birthing" and the pack up. To be recommended Winfred Peppinck O'Connor, ACT
