Where is Alice Springs?
Alice Springs is a remote outback town in the Northern Territory that is halfway between Darwin and Adelaide (with 1500km in either direction). It is also the gateway for exploring the Red Centre desert region, which features one of the world’s greatest natural wonders: Ayers Rock or Uluru. This 348-metre-high monolith, thought to have formed around 550 million years ago, is the convergence point for all sunrise hot air ballooning activities and other aerial and ground-height experiences offered at RedBalloon.
How does a hot air balloon work?
As we all know, hot air rises, and this is what propels hot air balloons in flight mode. Hot air ballooning is conducted by heating the air inside the balloon with a customised burner. This causes the balloon to rise, much like the sensation of floating on water. Once the air within the balloon is allowed to cool, your hot air balloon will drift slowly back to earth, and you will be all the richer for the knowledge and experience.
What is included during my Alice Springs hot air balloon experience?
Your Alice Springs Hot Air Ballooning experience includes either a 30 or 60 minute sunrise flight, as well as return transfers, a fully qualified pilot on board and a souvenir flight certificate for all participants. Following your unforgettable hot air balloon flight, you will enjoy a smorgasbord of fresh fruits, packaged muffins and other tempting slices, an assortment of cheeses and biscuits, served with fruit juices and sparkling wine.
What will I see hot air ballooning?
The Australian outback, with its upwardly mobile red kangaroos, wallabies, birds and other native wildlife, are a sight to behold in their natural habitat. These arresting sights, amid the ancient rocky outcrops and contrasting red and green landscape, are what you are destined to ascend upon as you embark on sunrise hot air ballooning adventures over Alice Springs. From a skyward perspective, you will view the majesty and vast splendour of the MacDonnell Ranges, including eye-catching spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and remote cattle stations dotted throughout this breathtaking desert region. RedBalloon offers Alice Springs Hot Air Ballooning packages for 60 minutes or 30 minutes of flight time. Both offer the same spectacular outback scenery.
