Here at Hot Air we know how to execute your perfect, unique proposal to that someone special. Hot Air ballooning is one of the most romantic things to do in Port Douglas. We can help you plan your special occasion so it all goes nice and smoothly on the day. 

Our highly professional driver will pick you and your partner up from your Port Douglas accomodation in our Luxury private vehicle and whisk you away through the rainforest to the Atherton tablelands to the balloon take off site. 


Arrive to the balloon launch site to witness the huge balloons coming to life before your eyes. Your driver will introduce you to our highly skilled pilot who will get you ready for take off. 


Float above the clouds and see below a patchwork panorama that brings new sights everyday. Watch for a variety of birdlife and take in the peace and serenity that is ballooning, the ultimate romantic gesture your partner is bound to be in awe of the whole experience. 

If you wish to pop the big question in the basket we will let our pilot know to ensure you are situated in the basket with enough space to do so. Or if you wish to choose to just soak up your balloon flight and keep the suspense going your could propose by the ocean during your gourmet breakfast in Palm Cove.

08.30am - 09.00am

Following the flight you will meet back with your driver for a transfer back through the rainforest to tropical paradise at Palm Cove. Breakfast at Nunu's has spectacular views of the coral seas, framed with stunning palm trees, the perfect location to enjoy a gourmet breakfast and glass of sparkling wine to toast your memorable morning. 

Return - you decide

Maybe a stroll after breakfast on one of Port Douglas' beautiful tropical beaches or a few more photographs with a palm tree background and no shoes! Return private transfer is available of course but , please advise your driver when you wish to depart for your accommodation.

We will capture some lovely pictures of you before your flight and then again during the flight from our special balloon remote controlled camera.
