Itinerary

Welcome Sunrise from a Hot Air Balloon

Get ready for a special experience welcoming the first rays of the sun in a hot air balloon. You will get picked up from your accommodation at approximately 4.00am for the one-hour long bus drive to Mareeba on the Atherton Tablelands, where the launching point is. Before you know it you are up in the air admiring the sunrise and nature below.

Keep your eyes out for wallabies below and various birds flying beside you. It is not uncommon to witness a marriage proposal as the surrounding rainforest clad mountains set the perfect scene for romance. And it is not just memories you are taking home, you will be awarded a Flight Certificate – just right for your bragging-board at home.
