Your ballooning adventure begins an hour before first light when the outback sky is still dark and speckled with bright stars!

Your ascent into the sky begins while the sun is rising over the magnificent MacDonnell Ranges.

Keep an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic Red Kangaroo as you drift across the remote and beautiful landscape.

You are sure to be in awe of this uniquely peaceful aerial perspective on the Territory!

After the flight enjoy light refreshments including sparkling wine and fruit juice, which is served at the landing site.

An experience that will be remembered for a lifetime - an absolute must-do when visiting Alice Springs!

Not Included: Mandatory aviation insurance charge of $30 per person payable on the day to Outback Ballooning.

 

***Balloon Chase***

A fantastic way to watch friends or family!

Our Balloon Chase option is perfect for those who would like to be involved in the hot air ballooning experience without taking the flight.

We’ll pick you up along with your group and you’ll learn all about how the Hot Air Balloons work before watching the balloon take to air!

You will stay on solid ground with the rest of the crew and travel through the desert tracks to the landing point where you will join your group for a glass of wine or fruit juice before returning to town.

** Pickup times vary throughout the year but are approximately 1 hour before first light and allow up to 4 hours duration for the whole experience..**

Illness and/or recent operations that may affect the person or other persons on the tour must be notified to Outback Ballooning in advance. Medication should be brought on the tour. Any form of disablement must be discussed with Outback Ballooning prior to making a booking. Each person is considered on an individual basis. The flight and carriage of any passenger will take place at the pilot’s discretion.
  • Child age is 6-16 years. Children 3-5 years are not recommended but considered on an individual basis.
  • Cancellations - Passengers will not be given a refund if they: • cancel their ballooning tour within 24 hours of departure •“no show” on the morning of the tour or •suffer “cold feet” on the launch field. No fee is charged for cancellations more than 24 hours before the flight.
  • Please note: Depending on many operational factors, which vary each day, you may be on the ground or in the balloon when the sun is actually coming over the horizon or rising, either way you will still see an amazing dawn.
