Our giant balloons accommodate up to 20 people, and glide gently over the bushland and farms of the Mareeba Valley which is regarded as Australia’s best ballooning location with over 300 days of Sunshine every year, even when it’s raining on the coast.

Each balloon is controlled by a highly trained pilot, and who will share with you the wonders of this magnificent landscape.
