Our ride was perfectly orchestrated from 4:10 am pickup to a scenic sunrise float with kangaroos below to a bit of manual labor packing up the balloon rewarded with local coffee! Highly recommended!

I was given this flight by my daughter and her family a number of years ago but kept delaying as I was a bit apprehensive although wanting to go. My daughter and I finally did it on Saturday and it was absolutely fantastic. Not frightening at all and such a wonderful experience. Thank you so much. Even the packing up of the balloon was part of the experience.

We waited for the perfect weather forecast for the perfect day of ballooning. picked up at 4:15 am and traveled to Mareeba. Waited for the first group of eager tourists to take their ride and just before we hopped into the basket the operators cancelled the ride due to wind......there was no wind whatsoever on the ground but they assured us that it COULD get very windy....I assure you that we could not feel any wind where we were standing in the middle of a flat paddock but I guess a butterfly flapped its wings somewhere in the vicinity so we could not fly....a waste of a beautiful morning and no real reason for the cancellation other than it Could get windy. We were deffinately not the only disgruntled ballooners as 1 couple even walked off in disgust...I certainly will not pre-book a ballooning flight again if that is how temperamental ballooning is. It is not a cheap exercise for group of friends at $235 each and then have to wait 3 business days for our refund.
