Soak up the early morning views across the incredible Atherton Tablelands just behind Cairns on this stunning hot air balloon ride with the guys from Raging Thunder!

Tour Description

Cairns is known for it’s variety of adrenaline experiences – from skydiving to bungee jumping – but sometimes it’s good to slow the pace down a bit and appreciate the stunning landscapes that Australia has to offer.

And in our opinion there’s no better way to do that in Cairns than a morning hot air balloon ride!

The early start is worth it as you head out Mareeba in The Atherton Tablelands via The Kuranda Range. After a quick safety briefing you’ll be up in the air soaking up the incredible views as the sunrises on the horizon.

The morning is split into two 30 minute flights so if you’re not snapping picks from the air in the hot air balloon you’ll be on the ground chasing it down for when it lands, which is greta fun too!

You can also upgrade your flight to a full 60 mins – contact us for more details
