The balloon ride starts at sunrise (around 6-7am). They picked us up at the hotel at 4am and headed to the balloons. The starting locations vary, depending on the winds. We took this trip in May so it was really cold. I imagine it will only be a bit warmer during summer so better bring your coats for warmth! The... More

It was so worth the early morning, 4:30am, pick up. An experience not to be missed. We got to watch the balloons being inflated and rising together before setting off to chase the first travellers on the first flight. This gave us an opportunity to watch the beauty of hot air ballooning in the sky before experiencing the ride first... More

One of the best sun rise which you will ever see. The staff are very friendly. The only tip is that there are mosquitoes in the area while you wait to get on the balloon. Apply anti-insect spray before the trip.

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

Our day started early and was picked up at our Hotel in Cairns right on time. Our driver was very entertaining. We arrived at the take off site early and was able to see our... 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.
