30/60 Minute Early Morning Balloon Flight

  • Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)

Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above the Outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert on this awe-inspiring ballooning adventure.

Journey to the launch site in the cool pre dawn darkness and begin the ascent just as the morning light begins to illuminate the rugged MacDonnell Ranges. Float gently across the vast expanse of the Central Australian outback – keeping an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic red kangaroo and gain an appreciation of the remoteness of the area as the balloon glides across the landscape.

After landing, you may become involved in assisting the crew as they pack the nylon balloon away or you may prefer to take photographs, the choice is yours.

At the ballooning landing site, there is time to enjoy the desert tranquility as light refreshments accompanied by sparkling wine and tropical fruit juice are served. There is an opportunity to purchase ballooning souvenirs and a commemorative flight certificate is given to all participants.

Flight distance will typically be between 10 and 20 kilometres. The balloon flight takes place approximately 15 kilometres to the south of Alice Springs adjacent to the MacDonnell Ranges and over the historic Owen Springs Cattle Station.

Balloon Chase Experience

  • Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)

If you would like to come and watch your friends/family take a hot air balloon flight then a balloon chase is for you!

We will pick you up with your group in the morning and you can see how the balloon flights work such as checking the weather, setting up and inflating the balloon. You will then stay on the ground after the balloons take off and travel through the desert tracks with our crew to where the balloon lands.

Once you re-join your group, you can enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or tropical fruit juice and refreshments with the other passengers before returning to town.

The balloon chase must be booked in conjunction with at least 1 adult booked on a balloon flight. Children booked on a balloon chase must be accompanied by 1 adult balloon chase. Limited space available.

Return transfers from all accommodation in Alice Springs is included with every flight. Pick up time is approximately 1 hour before first light – time will be given when booking and exact time will be confirmed when you re-confirm the day prior to flight booked. Transfers (at the end of tour) to the airport or other tours are available on request.

*** Depending on many operational factors, which vary each day, passengers may be on the ground or in the balloon when the sun is actually coming over the horizon or rising, either way you will still see an amazing dawn.
