The Greater Brisbane region including Ipswich, Somerset and Scenic Rim in South East Queensland is the ultimate place to experience the magic and adventure of hot air ballooning. Enjoy a boutique ballooning experience, just 30 minutes from 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 may even be able to assist with the inflation of the balloon. Once the balloon is inflated, you will lift off for an unforgettable one hour ride. Whilst floating majestically and effortlessly, take in panoramic views of both the city and country.

As the world slowly awakens, you float peacefully overhead, witnessing the serenity in slow motion from the balloon basket. Soak in breathtaking views of the city of Ipswich and its heritage buildings and homes, as well as Flinders Peak, The Great Dividing and McPherson Ranges, Mount Tamborine, Moreton Bay, Brisbane skyline, the winding Brisbane and Bremer Rivers and more. Upon landing, you can choose to assist the crew in packing up the balloon or instead take photographs. The flight crew will then return you to Ipswich for a delicious restaurant breakfast. A commemorative flight certificate will be presented to each passenger to conclude the mornings activity.
