27 Reviews

  • Location: Alice Springs, Australia
  • Duration: 4 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2478_OUTA54
Float above the Outback desert on this exciting hot air balloon adventure! Rise before dawn and watch your balloon inflate in the early rays of daybreak, before boarding your balloon and heading aloft. Drift over this barren landscape and spot wildlife from the air. Enjoy a light champagne breakfast on the landing site. This is a great way to see the Outback.


  • Scenic air tour
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
Start your ballooning adventure in the pre-dawn when the outback sky is alight with the brightest stars and the air is fresh and cool. Inflation of the balloon begins with the first faint glow of dawn in the east and we are aloft when the powerful rays of sunrise light up this ancient red land and its brooding sentinel, the MacDonnell Ranges.

Drift over this rugged landscape and appreciate its immensity and the flashes of green and ruby pink that announce wheeling budgerigars and galahs. After the flight enjoy a light champagne breakfast, which is served on the landing site. A superb way to see the Australian outback.
