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

There is no better way to celebrate something special than way up in the sky with the mist swirling below, the sun peeping over the mountains and serene silence. You have to try a magical balloon flight with Hot Air Ballooning! The staff were extremely friendly, had a great sense of humour and very professional. The whole experience ran smoothly,... More

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.
