Balloon flight tour with Breakfast - 60 minutes - Alice Springs
We have been a family operated business since 1986. We offer early morning 30 and 60 minute balloon flight tours, with daily departures from Alice Springs.
Your ballooning adventure begins in the cool pre dawn darkness as you are picked up from your accommodation in Alice Springs. During the 15-minute drive to our desert launch site you will get to know the crew as they make final weather checks and explain the routine for the morning. At the launch site gas burners are used to inflate the balloons.
The balloon flight takes place to the south of Alice Springs, between the Alice Springs Airport and the MacDonnell Ranges. Floating gently in the air, you will appreciate the vast remoteness of the Australian outback. Wildlife, particularly big red kangaroos, are seen nearly every day as the balloon crosses spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations.
After landing you may become involved in assisting the crew or taking photographs as we pack the nylon balloon back into its bag. In addition to sparkling wine tropical fruit juice cocktails juice we will be supplying an enticing variety of individually packaged savoury and sweet breakfast foods upon landing. A range of Outback Ballooning souvenirs is also available. Vegetarian and other dietary requirements should be notified at the time of booking.
Transfers back to your hotel, the airport or another tour, and a commemorative flight certificate completes your morning with Outback Ballooning.
