Highlights

  • Watching the crew set up the balloons while it’s still dark is a pretty spectacular sight. The flames against the dark sky is quite spectacular. Floating above the morning mist is also quite surreal.   
  • With over 300 days of sunshine a year, the Atherton Tablelands is regarded as Australia’s best ballooning location. With conditions like this a hot air balloon ride is a must-do in Tropical North Queensland.

Perfect Selfie

  • Take your pick! With this spectacular view there’s a selfie opportunity every second, but the sunrise is definitely the best!

Itinerary

Pick Up

 The still, early morning conditions provide the ideal flight window for the majestic modes of transport.

Any early-morning fogginess you feel on the journey to the Tablelands is guaranteed to dissipate as soon as you reach your destination.

When prepping the night before make sure you set out your flat shoes. These can be either secure sandals or closed shoes. Avoid wearing light or white-coloured clothing as the red volcanic soil of the tablelands will easily stain your clothes. And take a bottle of water and snack with you for the trip.

If you’re flying during the cooler months, between May – September, wear long pants and bring a jacket or jumper.
