Float over the picturesque Atherton Tablelands, regarded as Australia’s best ballooning location with over 300 days of sunshine every year, even when it is raining on the coast. The Balloons launch from Mareeba, located on top of the mountain range behind Cairns and Kuranda.

Hot air balloons travel differently from other aircrafts as they drift where the wind current takes them. The pilot is able to calibrate vertical movement but horizontal movement depends on the wind. The stunning Kuranda range shields the surrounding air from the winds off the coast, which is why the area above the peaceful Atherton Tablelands, is such a wonderful location for hot air ballooning.
