Once in a lifetime experience! Alex was with us in the balloon & he had the right answers to all our questions. We enjoyed the ride thoroughly. Saw a lot of kangaroos in the fields below.

​Just writing to tell you and everybody at Hot Air Balloon Cairns that I had a wonderful time this morning! It was an exceptional experience and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Along with our trip​ sailing​ to the Michelmas cay reef, your hot air ballooning was ​an experience I will never forget​.

Ballooning with hot air is one of the best things I have ever done. Views were incredible and thought it would be bumpy but was a smooth ride! We also made a stop off in Kuranda on the way back to Cairns and visited Koala Gardens. Small zoo but has some unique animals that we can not see up close and touch in the USA .
