60 Minute Balloon Flight from Alice Springs
The perfect way to appreciate the vast remoteness and spectacular dawn colours of the Australian outback and MacDonnell Ranges. Wildlife, particularly big red kangaroos are seen nearly every day as your hot air balloon crosses spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations. Return transfers & light refreshments in the bush after landing are included.
Your ballooning adventure begins in the cool pre dawn darkness as you are picked up from your accommodation in Alice Springs. During the 15-minute drive to our desert launch site you will get to know the crew as they make final weather checks and explain the routine for the morning. At the launch site gas burners are used to inflate the balloons just as the sun lights up the rugged MacDonnell Ranges.
Once floating gently in the air you will appreciate the vast remoteness of the Australian Outback. Wildlife, particularly big red kangaroos are seen nearly every day as the balloon crosses spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations. After landing you may become involved in assisting the crew or taking photographs as we pack the nylon balloon back into its bag.
In addition to champagne and fruit juice we will be supplying an enticing variety of individually packaged muffins, biscuits, chees and fresh fruit upon landing. This will allow you to really appreciate the remoteness of our desert environment wherever we land with food and chilled drinks.
Transfers back to your hotel, the airport or another tour, and a commemorative flight certificate completes your morning Ballooning over the spectacular Outback.
