Cairns Hot Air Balloon
60 Minute Atherton Tablelands Scenic Flight

Carried by the wind, every Cairns Hot Air Balloon flight is different and our double flight from $359 shows you more of the Mareeba Valley and the Atherton Tablelands.

You will stay aboard for both our 30 minute flights, or enjoy a single 60 minute flight depending on the number of passengers on the day, then enjoy a delicious champagne breakfast in our traditional bush setting.

Australia’s Most Reliable Flight Location


Our Chief Pilot chooses each day’s launch site from one of our many locations to take advantage of the wind direction.

The Cairns Hot Air Balloon Co. has over 20 years experience flying some of the worlds largest Hot Air Balloons in the skies above the Mareeba Valley, and is 100% committed to balloon flight safety.

Check out the picturesque
Atherton Tablelands

The Mareeba Valley on the Atherton Tablelands is our chosen flight location as this stunning region has over 300 sunny days per year, even when it may be raining on the coast.

Our giant balloons can hold up to 400,000 cubic feet of hot air and our multi-compartment baskets fly up to 20 people per balloon in comfort.
