Outback Ballooning

Outback Ballooning

The home of Outback Ballooning

Experience the phenomenal feeling of floating high in the sky above the Australian outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert in the beautiful Alice Springs. Sound like something you would love? We thought so. Outback ballooning is a once in a lifetime opportunity which will have you soaring amongst the clouds.

Before take off you will journey to the launch site at dawn and begin the ascent just as the morning light begins to reveal the rugged McDonnell Ranges. From here you will gently float across the vast landscapes of the Australian outback.

Be sure to look out for the native Aussie wildlife as you fly above their habitat. We’re sure you will spot the iconic Red Kangaroo as your balloon glides across the landscape of Alice Springs.

Outback Ballooning flight times are either 30, 60 minutes, and refreshments are served at the landing site, along with champagne and tropical fruit juice to celebrate your arrival. A commemorative flight certificate will be given to all participants, and for those who wish to take a slice of the experience away with them, there is also the opportunity to purchase ballooning souvenirs.
