Ever wanted to experience hot air ballooning over the Greater Brisbane region and surrounds? Now you can enjoy superb and glorious views whilst floating majestically and effortlessly over the stunning Valley's of the Scenic Rim, Somerset and the heritage city of Ipswich.
The Greater Brisbane regions including Ipswich, Somerset and Scenic Rim in South East Queensland is the ultimate place to experience the magic and adventure of hot air ballooning. For your boutique ballooning experience, we are just a short 30 minute drive from the Brisbane CBD. 45 minutes prior to sunrise, your pilot will brief you and your fellow passengers on the plan for the morning ahead. After final weather checks by the pilot, you will then be taken to the chosen launch site, based on the mornings wind speed and direction. You might even be able to assist with the inflation of the hot air balloon. Once the balloon is inflated, you will lift off for your hot air balloon ride, which will be approximately one hour in duration. Whilst floating majestically and effortlessly, your hot air balloon ride combines the city and country in one flight.
As the world slowly awakens, you float peacefully overhead, witnessing the serenity in slow motion from the balloon basket. Breathtaking views of the city of Ipswich and its classic Queenslanders, heritage buildings and homes, Flinders Peak, The Great Dividing and McPherson Ranges, Mount Tamborine, Moreton Bay, the skyline of Brisbane, Wivenhoe Dam, the Brisbane, Fassifern and Lockyer Valleys and the Brisbane and Bremer Rivers. Upon landing, you may become involved in assisting the crew in packing up the hot air balloon or taking photographs. Afterwards our crew will return you to Ipswich for a delicious restaurant breakfast including a full hot breakfast and a continental breakfast spread. A commemorative flight certificate will be presented to each passenger to conclude the mornings activity.
