Well organized fun
As we were staying in the Port Douglas area, we did have departure time of 3:30 am (Yikes!). Since we had about 8 of us going from our larger tour group, we had a dedicated bus and did not make any stops until arriving in Mareeba, a small town in the table lands. We took a bathroom and coffee break as we waited for the balloon pilots to decide which site the balloons would depart from. From there, on to the balloon launch site. The balloons were among the largest passenger hot air balloon made and our basket accommodated 12 passengers plus pilot. Once airborne, we drifted across the lush countryside for about 45 minutes. We passed over avocado and mango farms, brush lands (with some wallabies) and other green lands. Our bus driver (to and from the balloon ride) was Jada and she gave us a wonderful monologue about the area, ballooning and other interesting stuff throughout the ride.
