There's something about floating in the still morning sky in a hot-air balloon that brings out the romantic in all of us. It could be the absolute silence; it could be the feeling that you're as free as a bird. « less

We had a fabulous time on board the hot air balloon circling around the 'Tablelands' near Mareeba in Queensland. Staff were very informative and professional and very organised with timing of lift-of etc. Well worth the experience!

The hot air balloon trip was one of the highlights of my holiday in Port Douglas. We were picked up at our hotel at around 4am. The ride was pleasant, but I don't remember much as I slept most of the trip. Once we got to the hot air balloon, the trip went smoothly, and was very well organised. The... More

My girlfriend and another couple traveling with us had never experienced hot air ballooning. I had ballooned over Africa many years ago. I insisted they go ballooning over Australia. Ride was fabulous, weather good, and as soft as could be. Pilot was experienced and professional. Always felt safe. Worth the cost. Highly recommended.

My boyfriend had surprised me with a hot air ballooning experience for our four year anniversary! It was definitely memorable and I strongly advise everyone to try it at least once in their life. The only thing is - please remember to bring insect repellant because I got bitten like crazy by mozzies because we take off from a field!

We had the most wonderful time in the hot air balloon. We'll worth waking up at 3:30am. The scenery was breathtaking and we even saw a lot of kangaroos! The crew was excellent and very attentive, the 'pilot' very efficient. The entire experience was great!! Would do it again.

We traveled to Port Douglas and took a hot air balloon ride with "Hot Air" one morning. The crew was very experienced and the sites were breathtaking. We had a bit of a foggy morning, but our "driver" was able to get us above the fog and clouds at one point to where it was only us and the sun.... More
