Experience the fun & unique sensation of a hot air balloon ride over the Atherton Tablelands, Australia. We fly at Mareeba in the Cairns Highlands. Enjoy the picturesque landscape at dawn. Breathe in the wide-open spaces! We have Australia's largest fleet of balloons and a fun and highly trained crew to maximise the fun of your morning. It's just like a balloon festival every day!


Return and gentle landing, balloon pack-up games and lots of laughs with our friendly and expert crew.


Check-in with Great Adventures Staff at Cairns' Reef Fleet Terminal for your short trip to the Great Barrier Reef. Green Island is a Coral Cay with a sandy beach, and a part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The Green Island Weather is often much better than the mainland and avoids showers than might be happening onshore.

A huge thanks to the professional crew and pilot for such a wonderful ballooning experience. We all had such a great time, more than what we would ever expected.

Best tour I've done on the reef. We saw turtles while on the semi-submersible boat, saw clownfish while snorkelling, and saw the largest crocodile in captivity at the small wildlife centre on the island. You can walk through the forest to find hidden beaches on the island.

A great time had by all. We had our family in town and we now have some terrific memories we will never forget. The Hot Air crew were all great. The boat rides out to Green Island after was smooth and we enjoyed snorkeling with all the fish over there.
