The morning of your balloon flight starts with your Champagne Balloons driver providing door to door transfers and a friendly face. With information and commentary on the Cairns region your driver will look after you and always welcomes questions on the local Cairns environment, where the hot air balloons fly, as well as any technical questions on the hows and whys of how hot air ballooning really works.
The next friendly face to meet on the morning is your hot air balloon Pilot who is experienced in flying Australia’s widest range of balloons. Every morning is different… the balloon size, the breeze, our passengers on board and so Champagne Balloons is highly practised in tailoring each morning’s hot air ballooning tour to the requirements of that specific day. Our knowledge, experience and professionalism ensures that we uphold the highest standards in ballooning safety and operations.
Early mornings are simply the best time to be up and about in this part of Australia, with native wildlife being most active just after dawn, including kangaroos, wallabies, and bird species such as kookaburras, brolgas, cockatoos, galahs and parrots.
Make sure you secure your balloon flight today! Avoid disappointment, and to ensure you get to experience that balloon flight of a lifetime book ahead to avoid missing out as flight availability can be limited!
After your hot air ballooning flight you are welcome to discuss with your driver the range of choices available to finish your morning hot air ballooning tour. Some visitors choose to combine the Great Barrier Reef or a Rainforest Tour after ballooning. Many visitors choose to return to their resort and have a relaxing day of rest at poolside, maybe with a long lunch and a siesta enjoying the wonderful Cairns tropical weather. Whatever you feel like doing, your Champagne Balloons driver will provide transfers either back to your accommodation or pickup location, or deliver you safely to your ongoing tour.
