Full description
The Greater Brisbane, Somerset, and Scenic Rim regions in South East Queensland are the ultimate places to experience the magic and adventure of hot air ballooning – and why not book with the Ipswich and Scenic Rims regions first and longest running ballooning operator. Ballooning experiences are available all year round. Providing a personal and professional service for individuals & small groups (with a maximum of 10 passengers per flight). With over 26 years of experience from the operator, the chief pilot ensure a safe a pleasant journey.

Meeting 45 minutes prior to sunrise, your pilot will brief you and your fellow passengers. There will be final weather checks and a launch site will be chosen. The launch sites are as little as 5 – 15 minutes drive from the meeting point. You might even be able to assist with the inflation of the hot air balloon. Once the balloon is inflated, the hot air balloon will lift off for your flight, which will be approximately 1 hour in duration. 

Whilst floating majestically you will cover both the city and country sights. As the world slowly awakens, you float peacefully overhead, witnessing the serenity in slow motion from the balloon basket. See many of the unique landscapes of the region in one flight from the best perspective. Remember a camera as the trip will inspire some beautiful photographs.
