What You'll Do
  • Experience the spectacular dawn colours of the Australian outback from a hot air balloon
  • Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and light refreshments in the bush
Overview
The perfect way to appreciate the vast remoteness and spectacular dawn colours of the Australian outback. Wildlife, particularly big red kangaroos are seen nearly every day as your balloon floats over spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations.
What to Expect
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 floats above spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations.

After landing, Outback Ballooning has designed its program to allow you a unique opportunity to experience the Australia bush. Most of our landings are in the desert, kilometers away from the nearest road. There is no traffic, no other people and no noise. The perfect place to enjoy a glass of sparkling Australian wine or if you prefer our tropical apple and guava juice. Perhaps mix the two for a delightful morning cocktail. Drinks are accompanied by a variety of muffins biscuits, exotic slices, cheese and fresh fruit. It's the perfect mix to enjoy before reboarding your bus to return to “town”.
