This is one of those experience you should do it at least once in your life time. nice view from the top with open view and see the first ray of the sun rise. There is also the fun part of packing up the balloon. The only problem is you have to wake up really early as the bus will... More

Cairns Hot Air Balloon provided a great view of slowly rising sun, a scenic memory of Cairns and a joyous cheerful moments with professional staff. We we through an extended flight and in the end we ourselves deflated and packed the balloon with trained staff. A great fun. Something not to be missed in Australian tour.
