Spectacular flight over the Atherton Tablelands shortly after dawn. Scenery, kangaroos, wallabies. Biggest basket (20 people?) of my experience. 4:25 am hotel pickup was worth it. Booked this in a one day combination package with skyrail gondola ride and historic kuranda train ride--perfect logistical coordination among these companies, including return to hotel. So Aussie. There are other such packages offered... More

We had an amazing hot air balloon experience. The views over the mountains are incredible, and floating gently over the tablelands watching the sunrise is a wonderful experience I'll never forget. Due to an issue with another trip, we had to call hot air balloon Cairns in the evening and change our ballooning experience to the very next morning -... More

Great staff and really good value for money - an awesome morning. Prepare to be completely captivated by this very 'old fashioned' form of flight.

This was my first hot air balloon experience and it was fantastic! It was great being picked up and dropped off. Watching the balloons being prepared for flight was amazing and the flight itself was very smooth - it hardly felt like we were moving.

Ballooning with hot air was a wonderful experience. They pick you up and drop you back in the hotel. All the activities were very well organized. We had to get up really early as the pick up time was at 4.15 am but it was worth the trouble. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The weather was really cold,... More
