Hot Air Balloon Cairns is Australia’s largest hot air balloon operator. Cairns has one of the best-suited climates for ballooning and hot air balloon prices here are the best value in the southern hemisphere. See our spectacular balloon inflation display and some mornings there are so many colourful balloons; it’s just like a balloon fiesta!
Greet the sun as it rises over Tropical North Queensland on a memorable hot air balloon ride. Be prepared for early morning pickup at your Cairns, Northern Beaches, or Palm Cove hotel to be in the air by daybreak. After traveling to the launch site, climb aboard a sturdy basket and watch as flames fill an enormous balloon with hot air.
As you rise off the ground above the scenic Atherton Tablelands, get a fantastic aerial perspective of the region’s farmlands, rivers, and rolling hills in the distance. Your pilot points out unique features and points of interest as you float over the beautiful terrain. Watch morning fog dissipate as the sun washes the landscape with a rosy, golden light, and wave to other balloons that maybe floating nearby. After your time in the air, approximately 40 minutes flying time, return gently to the ground.
Help deflate, roll, and repack the enormous balloon with your crew and fellow passengers for a fun and interactive finish. Receive a certificate to commemorate your spectacular flight, and relax on the return drive to your hotel.
