Hot Air Ballooning from Port Douglas

51
Duration | 6 hours
Mobile Ticket OK

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. 

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.

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

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.

A balloon flight is one of the activities you have to put on your list 100 things to do before your time is up.
The silence and tranquility put a new dimension to flying.
