Alice Springs Hot Air Ballooning with Sparkling - 30 Minutes


  • Admire views of the MacDonnell Ranges at sunrise from a hot air balloon
  • Fly over spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations
  • Spot wildlife including big red kangaroos from the sky

Take in the remoteness and all the colours of the Australian Outback at sunrise during this half hour hot air balloon flight. As you float through the sky, admire the expansive MacDonnell Ranges lit up by the rising sun and watch out for kangaroos, wallabies and birdlife in their natural habitats.

What's Included?

  • 30 minute hot air balloon flight
  • Return transfers from Alice Springs
  • Qualified pilot and flight certificate upon completion
  • Refreshments, sparkling wine and juice
  • Flight insurance

On the morning of your balloon flight, you will rise before first light and make your way to the meeting point, where you'll meet the crew and sign the necessary paperwork. You'll then be transferred to the launch site where the balloon inflation will take place as the sun lights up the rugged MacDonnell Ranges. Feel free to get involved or simply stand back and watch your colourful balloon take shape. Once you've climbed into the basket, your pilot will ever so gently take off and begin to float through the sky, showcasing the remote Australian Outback splashed with the colours of sunrise. Keep watch for big red kangaroos, wallabies and birds going about their morning routines as you cross spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations. After the flight, relax over a host of refreshments including individually-wrapped muffins, cheese, biscuits and fresh fruit accompanied by Australian sparkling wine and fresh juice.
