Where are we going today?

Imagine what it would be like to see the world from the point of view of the birds? Pretty cool huh!? You could pretend to have wings and fly through the clouds!

With Outback Ballooning, your family journey will begin in the darkness of pre-dawn, where you head to your balloons. Nearly time to fly!  Once in the basket, you will feel the heat of the flames as they start to lift your balloon up...and up!

As you rise, you'll be able to see the sun rise on the horizon, and begin to light up the impressive MacDonnell Ranges!

What do you think you'll see as you are gliding across the expanse of the Central Australian Outback? Perhaps you'll see the iconic red kangaroo hop across the desert floor?

Make sure you don't forget your camera! You will see some incredible sights on your journey!

Once you have landed, you have the option to continue your outback adventure into the Australian bush.  Most of their landings are kilometres away from the nearest road. That also means no traffic, no noise and no people! It also means you might want to stop for a nice family lunch along the way!

Outback Ballooning is the country's ONLY company that specialise in remote Outback operations! They can take your family out in one of their beautiful balloons and take you to the skies!

Outback Ballooning's balloons carry up to 20 people each, and they operate everyday and rarely have to cancel because of the amazing desert weather!

Have a great flight, and say hello to the birds for us!

    This activity combines the sunrise, great scenery and a little excitement into one short morning. It is well organised with a very informative team of pilots that add to the enjoyment. My first balloon flight and I would recommend this company.
