My mum and I experienced your wonderful hot air balloon flight. The early morning start was difficult to cope with at first but certainly worth it in the long run. To see day break from the air was extremely peaceful and relaxing, the scenery was simply spectacular.

We had a fantastic time and my parents really enjoyed their experience. We have wanted to visit Tamborine mountain for many years and it has exceeded all expectations. Thanks to the pilot for the great landing!!

Driving from our Yungaburra accommodation was easy, we met our pilot at Mareeba and he took us from our car to the balloons and there were so many, we were so surprised, highly recommend anyone staying on the Atherton Tablelands to do this.
