The Raging Thunder Adventures pioneered Hot Air Balloon flights in Mareeba Valley in 1993, as this stunning location has over 300 sunny days per year. The most consistant flying conditions of any Hot Air Ballooning location in Australia, which allow us to fly even when it may be raining on the coast!
