What You Can Expect

Early Morning Ballooning in Alice Springs

Balloon set up

Start your ballooning adventure in the pre-dawn when the outback sky is alight with the brightest stars and the air is fresh and cool. Inflation of the balloon begins with the first faint glow of dawn in the east and we are aloft when the powerful rays of sunrise light up this ancient red land and its brooding sentinel, the MacDonnell Ranges.

Drift over this rugged landscape and appreciate its immensity, keeping an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic Red Kangaroo. After the flight enjoy refreshments including sparkling wine and fruit juice, which is served on the landing site. A superb way to see the Australian outback.

Balloon Chase Option
If you would like to come and watch your friends/family take a hot air balloon flight then a balloon chase is for you! Join your group in the morning and you can see how the balloon flights work such as checking the weather, setting up and inflating the balloon. You will then stay on the ground after the balloons take off and travel through the desert tracks with the ground crew to where the balloon lands. Once you re-join your group, you can enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or tropical fruit juice with the other passengers before returning to your hotel.


Pick up time is approximately one hour before first light. In the winter months, pick you is at approximately 5am with a return time around 9am. During summer it will be approximately 4am with a return around 8am. The exact pick up time will be confirmed when you book.
