Overview

Take off on a romantic hot air balloon ride, every day, west of Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef, hot air balloons take off into the wide open blue skies. 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.

A truely wonderful experience, from pick up at 4:20am, to delivery back to Port Douglas. Just a few tips- it's not cold up in the balloon, so don't bother with too many layers, take something to eat for the trip home. The staff were very...More

Wanted to do the hot air balloon ride for long, and we did it finally. The experience was amazing and would stay back with us for long. The pick up from our hotel was done at 3:30am, worth all the pain! Mareeba itself is a...More

What better way to celebrate your 60th birthday than to take a balloon flight over the Atherton tablelands. Thanks to Lindsay, Shaun and Dean for a wonderful flight.

Booked last minute but so glad we decided to do this. It's an early start but well worth it. Amazing views. Markham was flying the balloon and he was great! Landing was fun too

With sunrising, it's a breathtaking experience with no doubt! It's actually set off in Cairns so it would be better if you live in Cairns. The staves are all kind and funny who show us the best coffee around area.

First hot air balloon ride....worst part was climbing into & getting out of the basket with short legs. The scenery was beautiful and it was definitely worth doing!

We really enjoy hot air ballooning and this is the fifth or sixth time we've done it in the past few years. I'd rate the scenery as good to very good. More importantly, this is a well run outfit that puts safety first and gives...More
