What you need to know

Have a jam packed day and still want to be able to add a Cairns hot air balloon flight to your itinerary? This Express flight is the perfect solution for you as you will be back in Cairns by 8.30am so you can still fit in a trip to the Great Barrier Reef or a day trip on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and historic Kuranda Scenic Railway! Departing from Cairns accommodation, you'll travel aboard a comfortable coach to the flight departure point for one of the most surreal adventures you'll ever experience. After watching the balloon be inflated, you'll climb aboard ready for your ascent into the sky.

Travelling over the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, you'll witness sights of the lush, green hinterland as you fly to a gorgeous rising sun backdrop. Watching on as the world comes to life below, you'll leisurely float, immersing yourself in the very serene environment. This Cairns Express Hot Air Balloon Flight truly is a must do experience! Be certain to remember your camera as there will be plenty of sights you'll want to capture!

Once safely back on land, the express part of this package comes in to play. You'll be guaranteed the first bus back to the Cairns city area arriving back at around 8.30am, just in time for any other activities you wish to pursue for the rest of the day. Please note that a $30 per person Civil Aviation Levy is not included in the price of this experience and is only payable to the operator on the day of your tour.
