Enjoy a completely unique perspective on the romance of Tropical North Queensland's stunning and diverse landscapes with a classic hot air balloon ride. Witness the amazing inflation process and watch as your vehicle for the morning takes shape, then take your place in the spacious basket and it's up, up and away over the gum trees as you steadily climb.
