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.
