What To Expect

You will be picked up from your accommodation approximately 1 hour before first light and travel south of Alice Springs to the launch site. Flying over the historic Owen Springs Cattle Station, you will see spectacular views of the MacDonnell Ranges and early morning skies.

Imagine floating gently across the vast expanse of the Central Australian outback as you keep an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic red kangaroo. You will gain an appreciation of the remoteness of the area as the balloon glides across the landscape. After landing, you may become involved in assisting the crew as they pack the nylon balloon back in to its bag or may prefer to take photographs, the choice is yours.

At the ballooning landing site, there is time to enjoy the desert tranquility as light refreshments accompanied by Australian sparkling wine and fruit juice are served. There is an opportunity to purchase souvenirs and a commemorative flight certificate is given to all participants before heading back to town. Transfers (at the end of tour) to the airport or other tours are available on request.
