Hot Air Balloon at Sunrise Self Drive

Enjoy the scenic flight of your lifetime! Hot Air Balloon at Sunrise has unforgettable views. Stretching from the tranquil country landscapes of the Atherton Tablelands as well as the Great Barrier Reef.

The balloon flights operate every day. With visitors from all over Australia in addition to 40 different countries are flying with us annually.

You will love looking out over the vast blue skies over the Atherton Tablelands. The climate conditions are relatively cooler. Therefore, it makes for a perfect ballooning experience. The dryer environment of Mareeba in the north Tablelands is in stark contrast to the wetter south. Meanwhile, gaze down upon the rolling green farm hills and lush rainforest.

Enjoy the picturesque landscape at sunrise as you float for half an hour, and take in the wide-open spaces! If this sounds like you, maybe you’d prefer to glide through the clouds for an hour instead – a fabulous optional extra.

There are vast blue skies over Mareeba. Along with relatively benign climatic conditions has inspired the development of aerial tourism activities. Such as the sublime calm of hot-air ballooning to the thrills of skydive parachuting.

Enthusiasts can watch the sunrise over the rolling hills of the Atherton Tablelands. Soak up the 360-degree panorama in the silence and romance of a hot-air balloon. In conclusion, you will finish with a peaceful drift to the ground under the silk of the parachute.
