Hot Air Ballooning Info

Early morning 30 Minute Hot Air Balloon Flight adventure:

Float in a hot air balloon above the Cairns Atherton Tablelands, including a delicious champagne breakfast.  

20 years' experience flying over the Mareeba Valley with over 300 sunny days per year. 

Magical and exhilarating balloon flight at dawn over the Atherton Tablelands.

The giant balloons accommodate up to 20 people, and glide gently over the bushlands & farms of the Mareeba Valley.

The Atherton Tablelands provide the perfect conditions for hot air ballooning and the view from your basket of rolling hills and winding streams is stunning.

You will arrive just in time to see the balloons beings inflated. As the sun rises your pilots gently lift off and quietly glide the balloons over the panorama of the Cairns Highlands.
