Hot Air Ballooning is a great way to enjoy sweeping views of the Australian landscape, float over some of our native fauna (maybe see a kangaroo) and start your day with a stunning sunrise. Most ballooning packages operate in Mareeba, just west of Cairns, on the fringe of the Australian Outback, with pick-ups from Cairns and Port Douglas.
