Did you know that Cairns and Tropical North Queensland is the ballooning capital of the world? This is the ultimate scenic experience in the tropics! Hot Air ballooning here is a must do and truly, one of Australia's best kept secrets. So come flying, daily from Cairns and Palm Cove and Cairns beaches, this is Australia's biggest fleet of balloons where it's just like a balloon festival everyday!
Booked a trip for my mother, she had a great time. Festival atmosphere by the pilots and staff keeping the group entertained. The fun is in 3 parts, watching balloons lined up and filling in the sunrise, the balloon ride itself, and balloon chasing in 4wd and bus across the landscape. A 30 minute ride but couple hours of fun.
This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. The staff were really friendly and packing the balloon was fun, too.
Everyone must try this at least once amazing feeling well worth the money start with very accommodating and professional
Great experince, flying over the atherton valley with perfect weather conditions, sky was no clouds only blue.Jack our driver was great and pilot and all team gave us a awesome morning.
How can anyone give a rating below four stars?? It is the most exhilarating experience; the perfect serenity to escape the overwhelming responsibilities life brings. The tour guides were amazing, informative and easy to get along with. They explained that the early rise is due to the temperature it's got nothing to do with the sunrise! So don't always expect to catch the sunrise people. We did have to help pack up but with such a big balloon it is impossible to ask the staff to do it alone, besides the more people there were to help pack the faster we got on the busses. Definitely recommend the one hour extended flight, because by the time you launch and land that's almost 30mins gone. Wear closed toed shoes (shoes you don't care about, they get dirty when packing the balloon) and long pants in case you land in some long grass. Bring some food and snacks before you don't get that until after everything is done.
