Hot Air Ballooning - 60 Min Flight - Alice Springs

Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above Australia's iconic Northern Territory!


  • 60 Minute Hot Air Balloon experience
  • Breathtaking Outback views
  • Hotel transfers included
  • Light refreshments included

Discover the untouched beauty of Australia’s Northern Territory as you float overhead in a hot air balloon!

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

Watch as the balloon inflates and the sun starts to rise in the east. You'll ascend into the sky while admiring the stunning sunrise over the MacDonnell Ranges.

As you drift over this rugged landscape and take in its exceptional immensity, keep an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic Red Kangaroo and gain an appreciation of the remoteness of the area as the balloon glides across the landscape.

After your 60 minute flight, celebrate your landing with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and a light snack.

On occasion, the flight time may be two separate, sequential 30-minute flights taken one directly after the other with a short changeover in between the two flights, depending on operational restrictions. Passengers will be notified the day prior should this be the case on the day of their flight.

A truly unique and memorable way to experience the Outback!

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.

** Pick-up time is approximately 1 hour before first light and please allow up to 4 hours for this tour.**

Adult $365.00
Child $292.00 (6 - 16 years old)

Worth the early morning wake up call

Worth the early morning alarm call. Sunrise over the dessert was a delight. The pilot was great and informed us extensively about all the scenery. And the support crew were also great to have have an informed chat and a joke with. The birds eye view and experience was a must do. Worth the alarm and recommended.

A great experience floating through the air.

It was an early start but worth it to catch the sunrise. Floating so high up and looking over the landscape was brilliant and slightly surreal. Very professional group and would recommend this experience.

Thanks for such a great review Alison. We will pass on your comments to the whole staff. We are a little biased and think that the early morning skies are indeed stunning and floating gently in a hot air balloon over the vast desert landscape is the only way to go! We're glad you had a great time. Cheers!
