Balloon Flight Booking Conditions

To keep ballooning as safe as possible there are a few restrictions you should be aware of before making your booking :

  • While we return to Cairns as early as possible we highly recommend having your own travel insurance (to cover unforeseen circumstances which may cause you to miss a connecting tour)
  • The minimum age is 4 years and those under 18 must travel with a guardian or parent
  • It is a CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority) requirement that you be able to climb in and out of the basket unaided using the footholds provided
