Hot Air Ballooning

Did you know, the Atherton Tablelands, Queensland, is the most popular place in Australia to float in a hot air balloon? Located west to south-south-west inland from Cairns, the Atherton Tablelands elevated position provides ideal weather and climate
conditions for this gentle activity. With 98% tour reliability, this statistic is unmatched anywhere in the world within the Ballooning industry.

Take Off
Balloon flights take place at dawn as this is the best time of the day for optimum weather conditions to launch the balloons. The take off location is selected on the day according to the wind directions around the district at the time. Hot Air has access to a range of private properties spread over the Atherton Tablelands which they can use as launch sites, this adds to the thrill and excitement of the day, as it's always a suprise where the ballooning will commence. Balloon inflation takes place here, and depending on many operational factors, passengers may be on the ground during inflation or in the balloon when the sun is rising. Either way, the Australian sky during the first hour of light is always amazing.

The Flight
The flight is very gentle and stable as you start from the ground and gently lift up. You will instantly see some amazing patterns and images from the farming landscapes below. Views range from the dark greens of the rainforest peaked mountains to the east that form part of the Great Dividing Range, to the dusty reds and oranges of the Outback towards the western fringes of the plateau. With an area of approximately 32,000 km² and a ranging altitude of between 500 and 1,280 m (1,600 and 4,200 ft), the views from a hot air balloon flight are just spectacular.

A typical hot air balloon flight ranges anywhere from tree level to approximately 3,000 ft. As you glide over this picturesque landscape you'll see and hear Australian wildlife such as wallabies and birds as they awaken. Look for wallabies and other wildlife that are often seen in the bushland surrounding creeks. When the burner is off, it is completely quiet so it’s easy to hear sounds drifting up from below you. Kangaroos are a common sight, and it is not unknown to sight the odd snake sliding into the grass off the warmth of a rock in the early morning sunlight. With no noise in a hot air balloon, you may descend over wildlife or stock without even being noticed, and get amazingly close. The balloon travels with the wind anywhere from 5 to 30 kilometres, so landing is always a thrill as it is never known where the balloon may descend. The hot air balloon bus is in constant contact with the pilot, playing chase to the balloon to plot a suitable landing position. Packing up the balloon is all part of the experience and teamwork is a must!

Departures
Hot Air Balloon flights operate daily providing weather conditions are suitable. Coach transfers are available from your Port Douglas accommodation departing at approx 5:00am and returning at approx 9:30am. Alternatively it is possible to self drive to Mareeba and connect with the Hot Air Balloon bus in Mareeba, this will allow you to enjoy the rest of the day after your balloon flight exploring all the Tablelands has to offer. Hot Air is an industry professional ensuring a high level of service, state-of-the-art equipment and product quality to deliver one of the very best Hot Air Ballooning experiences in Australia.
