Because our balloons are gently carried along by the wind, every flight is different. We have over a hundred different take off and landing sites around the Mareeba Valley, with your launch site being chosen on the morning by our Chief Pilot based on wind direction.

On completion of your Balloon flight, we will travel to the Mareeba Heritage Centre for a comfort stop and opportunity to view your in-flight photo's. An optional light breakfast will be available for purchase before returning to Cairns.


One Hour Ballooning Over the Atherton Tablelands

If this option is selected you will either do a 1 hour flight or 2 x 1/2 hour flights, this will be decided on the day of travel depending on passenger numbers.


Non Flying Spectator
