Balloons Over Brisbane

Experience the exhilaration those first aeronauts must have felt when they ascended over Paris in 1783; in their Hot Air Balloon; the first to see the world from the perspective of an eagle, soaring over fields and meadows, streams and farms; serene and in touch with nature.

Balloons over Brisbane introduces you to Hot Air Ballooning at its best! Your launch site is determined by the prevailing wind direction, and all those able, may help inflate the balloon if they wish. Once in the air, floating over Brisbane in their Hot Air Balloon, it is often possible to see the magnificent Glasshouse Mountains to the north and the fabulous Gold Coast to the south.

At the end of your hot air balloon ride, you are met by their experienced ground crew. The group then packs the balloon away and is transported back to the Office at Davies Park in West End, where, in the lovely picnic area, you are served a lovely European style breakfast. Assorted meats, cheeses, fresh fruit, hot bread, condiments and croissants. You can wash it all down with a glass or two of bubbly, or if you prefer they provide juice, coffee or tea. On Discount Monday flights, only refreshments are served.

Flights over Brisbane are spectacular. Flight time is approximately one hour. Your absolute safety is assured; the licensed pilots are in constant radar and radio contact with Brisbane’s Airport Control Tower. The Chief Pilot, Will Paul has flown balloons around the world and maintains the flight over Brisbane is one of the worlds best “Hot Air Balloon Rides.”
