Hot Air Ballooning in Cairns
There is no experience quite like viewing the spectacular natural landscape of Far North Queensland at dawn from a Cairns balloon flight. Float over the Atherton Tablelands and the vast green swathe of the Daintree Rainforest. Cairns is the most popular destination in Australia to take a hot air balloon ride, and the beauty of its surroundings makes it easy to see why. Ballooning in Cairns means an early start, but it’s a brilliant way to make the most of your Northern Queensland adventure and watch the sunrise in this stunning, varied destination. This also makes Cairns hot air ballooning the perfect combo activity, finishing just after 10am with the rest of the day ahead of you. Or if you book the 30 minute Express flight then you'll be dropped back into town by 8.30am in time for the 9am reef boat departures.

There are so many activities to do in Cairns that it can be a little daunting, but start your day the right way with a Cairns balloon flight and depending on your interests choose a combo activity. Combine with rafting or quad biking for those looking to get their pulse racing- these are guaranteed to really wake you up.
