Highlights

  • While floating above the landscape, do keep your eyes peeled for animals, they often hide but suddenly you could spot some ’roos take off!  
  • It’s a good idea to wear a hat because of the heat from the burner which can also give off soot, so also avoid wearing white or light clothes.

Perfect Selfie

  • Inflating the balloon is impressive as the skin seems to suddenly expand into life so try to get a shot in front of it! Share your selfie to our Facebook page.

Itinerary

Ballooning: A Top 3 Cairns Must-do

After being picked up at your Cairns accommodation, your air-conditioned coach will take you to the balloon’s departure point to watch your transport inflate, it seems almost magically. As you gently lift off under a beautiful sunrise, the picturesque landscape spreads out in front of you. Flying gently over the Atherton Tablelands and Mareeba, you’re guided by a fun and highly trained crew who deliver interesting commentary to inform you all about your memorable air adventure. You’ll also enjoy an exciting cross-country balloon chase, the fun continuing with pack-up games on landing. Share great memories on the return coach ride with the free Wi-Fi. The Commemorative Certificate you receive makes a wonderful souvenir.
