Hot Air Ballooning

Fly aboard a Hot Air Balloon as the sun comes up over the Atherton Tablelands. The giant balloons accommodate up to 20 people, and glide gently over the bushland & farms of the Mareeba Valley located an hour west of Cairns. The Mareeba Valley is the chosen launch site because it is protected from the coastal winds by the Kuranda Range, giving us the most flying days and clear skies of any site in Australia.

N.B: Hot air ballooning to an altitude of 2500 feet should not be undertaken within 24 hours of diving, as it exceeds the recommended flying after diving altitude.
