Balloon flight tour with Breakfast - 60 minutes
Alice-Springs - NT
We have been a family operated business since 1986. We offer early morning 30 and 60 minute balloon flight tours, with daily departures from Alice Springs. Our tours include return transfers, the balloon flight, a flight certificate and a 4 course chicken and sparkling wine breakfast. Your ballooning adventure begins in the cool pre dawn darkness as you are picked up from your accommodation in Alice Springs. During the 15-minute drive to our desert launch site you will get to know the crew as they make final weather checks and explain the routine for the morning. At the launch site gas burners are used to inflate the balloons. The balloon flight takes place to the south of Alice Springs, between the Alice Springs Airport and the MacDonnell Ranges. Floating gently in the air, you will appreciate the vast remoteness of the Australian outback. Wildlife, particularly big red kangaroos, are seen nearly every day as the balloon crosses spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations. After landing you may be involved in assisting the crew or taking photographs as we pack the balloon back into its bag. Our buses will then travel to our outdoor setting alongside the Todd River where you will be served a 4 course chicken and sparkling wine breakfast. Between courses of marinated chicken drumsticks, quiches, fruit baskets, cheese, and chocolate cake you will have the opportunity to buy photographs taken earlier in the morning. A large range of Outback Ballooning souvenirs are also available. Vegetarian and other dietary requirements should be notified at the time of booking. Transfers back to your hotel, the airport or another tour, and a commemorative flight certificate completes your morning with Outback Ballooning. The $AUD25.00 Insurance Fee per person, is payable on the morning of the flight and not optional. You can pay by cash, credit card, EFTPOS or travellers cheques. Clothing: Long pants, sturdy footwear, hat & sunscreen.
