Alice Springs Ballooning
Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above the Outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert on this awe-inspiring Alice Springs ballooning adventure.
Journey to the launch site in the cool pre dawn darkness, and begin your 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 you glide across the landscape.
After landing you may become involved in assisting the crew or taking photographs as we pack the nylon balloon back into its bag. At the balloon landing site you will be offered sparkling wine and tropical fruit juice accompanied by a selection of muffins, slices and biscuits, cheese and fresh fruit. A range of Outback Ballooning souvenirs is also available.

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.
We ask that you reconfirm the day before the tour. This can be done on the toll free number 1800 809 790. This is to check pick up time and also to advise us of room numbers. It is extremely important to be able to locate you if the weather is inappropriate for ballooning or in the event that the you sleep in.
Mobile telephone numbers are also very helpful and should be left on the night before your tour.
