Take a hot-air balloon ride over the Outback

Be charmed by the spirit of the outback, high in the sky, a hot-air balloon ride. Be bewildered by the wide-open space and vast remoteness of the Red Centre. This desert region features red sand deserts, tropical rainforests, impressive rock formations, deep ravines and waterfalls.

Travel over the Australian hinterland and watch as the sun slowly rises over the desert of Alice Springs. Alice Springs is a timeless place, alive with Aboriginal culture. An awe-inspiring adventure as you float gently above the capital of the Outback and its surrounding landscape.

Beneath, you may also see the iconic red kangaroo in the burnt orange landscape. This is one of the largest kangaroo species, which are on average 1.5-metres tall. However, some have been measured up to 2.1-metres tall. And in one single leap, a male kangaroo can cover up to nine-metres!

The local company has been operating in Alice Springs since 1986, making it one of the longest-running balloon operators in Australia. The pilots are highly experienced and have a wealth of knowledge to share with you along the way, about this timeless part of the world.
