This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: MacDonnell Ranges, West MacDonnell National Park, Northern Territory Australia

You will see amazing views of the spectacular MacDonnell Ranges from your hot air balloon flight. We do not fly over or near the Ranges but you will certainly see them for as long as the eye can see.

Pass By: Outback Ballooning, Alice Springs, Northern Territory 0871 Australia

Start your ballooning adventure in the pre-dawn when the outback sky is alight with the brightest stars and the air is fresh and cool. Inflation of the balloon begins with the first faint glow of dawn in the east and we are aloft when the powerful rays of sunrise light up this ancient red land and its brooding sentinel, the MacDonnell Ranges.

Drift over this rugged landscape and appreciate its immensity, keeping an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic Red Kangaroo. After the flight enjoy light refreshments including sparkling wine and fruit juice, which is served at the landing site. A superb way to see the Australian outback.

    Surpassed expectations. Everything about this activity was easy and enjoyable. Duncan the pilot and Nathan the driver were affable and professional. Experience was amazing - the dawn colours and birdseye view a must-do experience. Home by 8 am!

    Wonderful hot air ballooning experience over the west macdonnell ranges. Duncan (pilot) and Marco (driver) did an amazing job.

    All staff were very approachable, helpful and knowledgable. I have a dietery need (coeliac) and I was well catered for with a special picnic pack. Champagne was available until gone! Although there is not much to see from the air over the desert and limited by the no-fly zones of Pine Gap and the airport, the sunrise was beautiful and our pilot, Duncan kept us entertained and was full of fun facts. You will need to be able to climb into the basket fairly unassisted!

    As a ballooning first timer, this was a great introduction. I can see why the pilots love it. From Kylie the pick-up driver through to Jason the pilot you could sense they all really enjoyed their job. And it certainly helps to enjoy some bubbles after wrapping up the balloon

    I was so surprised by how much I really enjoyed this. It was just so beautiful. It was so quite and smooth. Loved everything about it apart from getting up so early when it was so cold. But once I was in the air it was so worth it. The champagne breakfast was a great way to finish a stunning morning. Thanks to these guys was amazing.

    Watching the sun rise while enjoying the company of like minded people and listening to the knowledgeable commentary by our pilot was so memorable. Wonderful Staff. Learned a little about the history of ballooning from our driver and got to assist in folding that enormous envelope into a small box at the end. Highly Recommended.

    Well organised, thorough and cheerful to boot! Clearly I a lot of effort goes into the flight - we had a quick paced flight where what would normally take an hour only took half of that due to rapid changes in wind conditions. Duncan our balloon pilot really earned his money!!! Everyone was friendly awesome and happy to banter and tell us more about the nuts and bolts of balloon flights (Duncan does a lot of recreational flights of his own and clearly loves it!!!). Definitely recommended. I’ve flown before in other parts of Australia but this was next level because we were seeing some distant showers of rain and the clouds made sunrise pretty epic. Conditions in AS are quite different to that of other parts of Australia and require someone really on their game. Would recommend for especially first time flyers too because the amount of experience and obvious enjoyment the crew get out of this is fantastic!

    This experience is not to be missed. It was wonderful to watch the sunrise over the ranges, to feel the gentle breeze and sunshine on my skin as the balloon slowly glided across the plains.

    Fantastic! A must do. Was worried I would be scared in a basket in the air, but have no fear, this is the most peaceful, amazing experience. The whole team were excellent and so much fun. The sunrise was spectacular, loved every minute. Thank you Outback Ballooning 🎈🧺

    Awesome, never done it before. It was among the top 10 things to do in Alice, I am glad I did it. It was a great experience from the moment I have been picked up at my hotel to the moment when we packed the Balloon away. The crew is very knowledgeable and the views are great from up above. The quiet is very calming and I felt safe all along.
