Outback Ballooning – There is no better way to see Central Australia!
Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above the Outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert on our awe-inspiring hot-air ballooning adventure.
You will travel to the launch site in the cool pre-dawn darkness and begin the ascent just as the morning light begins to illuminate the rugged MacDonnell Ranges. Float gently across the vast expanse of the Central Australian outback – keeping an eye out for native wildlife and gain an appreciation of the remoteness of the area as the balloon glides across the landscape.
After landing, you may become involved in assisting the crew as they pack the nylon balloon back in to its bag or may prefer to take photographs, the choice is yours.
At the ballooning landing site, there is time to enjoy the desert tranquillity as light refreshments accompanied by Australian sparkling wine and tropical fruit juice are served. There is an opportunity to purchase ballooning souvenirs and a commemorative flight certificate is given to all participants.
Return transfers from all accommodation in Alice Springs is included with pick up time approximately 1 hour before first light. Please allow approximately 4 hours for this tour.
We operate every day, weather permitting. We do recommend you book for the first available day in the area to allow for re-booking in case of bad weather.
Physical fitness is not a requirement to enjoy a ballooning adventure, but passengers must be able to climb up and into the basket (approx. 1.2 metres in height) unaided using the basket foot holes and stand for the duration of the flight.
