    Balloon ride kept going on and on as they couldn't find safe place to land. I was about to miss my flight but the team ensured I am at airport at earliest. Cheers to great effort from them ..

    Must do if you are in Cairns

    Waking up very early to catch the sunrise was worth it. Staff was very professional and ensured the safety of all the passengers.
