Float Over The Landscape Of Cairns With An Incredible Sunrise Balloon Flight

​Hot air ballooning is considered one of the best ways to see Northern Queensland and it’s stunning sunrises. Not only this, the calm skies and sunny weather of this region means that it is considered one of the best locations in the world for hot air ballooning. On this tour soar over the landscape of the Cairns Highlands or Atherton Tablelands, and experience the spectacular views from the balloon basket. There are a range of different flight options to choose from: ​

Option A: 30 Minute Scenic Flight Float in a hot air balloon above the Cairns Atherton Tablelands. Our difference is that we fly as high and far as weather conditions permit, aiming for a minimum 30 minute flight.

Option B: 30 Minute Express Return Our Express flight guarantees you the first bus return back to Cairns to allow you to join other tours or departures to Fitzroy Island or the Great Barrier Reef.

Option C: 60 Minute Double Flight Carried by the wind each flight is different, and you’ll fly aboard two 30 minute scenic flights; or a single 60 minute flight depending on passenger numbers.

**Please note, we can’t guarantee your balloon will launch at sunrise, because our sunrise times vary as much as an hour from winter to summer.**
