We've had the privilege of hosting guests from across Australia and over 27 countries. We offer convenient pickups from Port Douglas, Cairns, Palm Cove, and the Gold Coast, including Surfers Paradise. For those journeying from Brisbane and the surrounding areas, or opting for a self-drive adventure, join us at one of our official meeting points for a morning immersed in the exceptional world of hot air ballooning.

In the spirit of enhancing your ballooning experience, we've upgraded our photo service. Now, all our flights include a full suite of digital photos as part of the package, with absolutely no extra cost. We capture everything - from your radiant smiles before takeoff, to the awe-inspiring in-flight moments, and the camaraderie during team pack up.
Seamlessly delivered to you after your flight, these high-resolution images are perfect for sharing your adventure online, via email, or on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and your personal website or blog. All photos are typically uploaded by midday on the same day as your flight.
Though we've evolved, we still maintain our legacy photo hosting website for those who've flown with us in the past, and your unique password would be found on the back of your flight certificate.
