DESCRIPTION

This half hour flight over the vibrant red Australian outback provides a unique insight into the rugged terrain that makes up Australia’s iconic red centre. Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above the outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert on this awe-inspiring 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 McDonnell Ranges. Float gently across the vast expanse of the Australian Outback while 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 you land feel free to get involved to assist the crew in packing up the balloon or take the chance to grab some photographs for memorabilia purposes. At the balloon landing site you’ll be provided with sparkling wine and tropical fruit juice for refreshments as well as muffins, slices, biscuits, cheeses and fresh fruits.
