Atherton Tablelands - Cairns - Port Douglas
Where your balloon flies
It is well known in the hot air balloning industry that the Cairns Highlands and Atherton Tablelands, west of Cairns is the ideal place in Australia to take off on a hot air balloon ride due to its stable weather patterns and wonderful natural landscapes and scenery across the farmlands. Cairns is also the cheapest place in Australia for a hot air balloon ride due to the frequency of these take offs and landings.
Atherton Tablelands also known as the fruit bowl of Tropical North Queensland, is well known for its undulating lush green vistas, various tropical fruit crops, and the place to pick up some fresh mangoes, as well as becoming increasingly famous for it's coffee and other great locally grown and produced food specialities.
Cairns & Port Douglas Hot Air Ballooning Experiences
In Cairns, hot air ballooning operations are conducted among the green rolling hills of the Cairns Highlands at various locations near the township of Mareeba. Of the many hot air ballooning locations around the world, the Cairns Highlands climate is considered to be the most ideal for hot air balloons as pilots are able to launch their hot air balloons almost every day of the year. The mountains of the Great Dividing Range act as a wind buffer against the fresh sea breezes resulting in Cairns having less cancelled flights than any other location in the world.
Enjoy a ride in one of our beautiful hot air balloons with transfers to and from your accommodation and take the opportunity for mid-flight photos so you can take home a gorgeous photo of yourself in the air.
As your ballooning experience finishes mid morning why not do another tour on the same day such as a Great Barrier Reef tour or even a rainforest tour? We can package a number of tours that you can do throughout the day along with your hot air ballooning tour.
