Canberra Hot Air Balloon Flight at Sunrise
USD 239.15
Discover the unsung beauty of Australia’s capital city as you float overhead in a hot air balloon. Take to the skies for an early-morning hot air balloon flight and admire the full effect of Walter Burley Griffin’s urban landscape as you watch the sunrise over the parks, lakes and government buildings of Canberra. After your 45min -1-hour flight, celebrate your safe landing with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and a personalized flight certificate.
What to Expect
Your flight experience begins early in the morning at the Hyatt Hotel, centrally located on Commonwealth Ave, a two minute walk from Parliament House.

You'll meet just before dawn as this is the best time to fly. From the Hyatt you are taken to the launch site. It takes around 20-25 minutes for the balloon to be inflated and standing upright ready for boarding. You are welcome to help with the setup of the balloon or simply stand back and take photos as your aircraft takes shape and comes to life.

Dawn lift-off! As the new day dawns, you will ascend into the sky in your colourful balloon. Your balloon will float gently along the breeze, whilst in your basket you will feel completely secure with very little sensation of movement. During your flight you may find yourself drifting just above the treetops then moments later effortlessly ascending to heights of 2000-feet or more.

Photography from the balloon is encouraged and you will be rewarded with stunning shots of Canberra, providing you with years of fond memories.

After approximately one hour you will be greeted by your ground crew as you touch back down to earth. The balloon is packed away with lots of laughs, then you hop back into one of the vehicles and return to the Canberra Hyatt. Enjoy a glass of Australian sparkling wine as you are presented with a commemorative flight certificate as part of our traditional ballooning celebration.

I 'ticked off' a bucket list item by doing a balloon ride. This was early morning and the weather was perfect. It is so still up there and cold but the view is breathtaking. To see the Nation's Capital from above is spectacular. You can...More

Early morning flight

I planned an early morning flight for my sister who never does anything adventurous. She was blown away with the tranquility of the flight & the view over beautiful Canberra. A must do if you visit.

Romantic life life long memory

Meeting at the Hyatt Hotel before dawn to travel as a group to the launch site. We couldn’t believe we were meters into the air without feeling the lift off at all. An amazingly quiet drift over Canberra with the old and new Parliament Houses...More

Frosty Start

The weather finally provided near perfect conditions for a morning (22 June 2018) hot air balloon flight. Of course, "near" and "weather" are always subjective, with the morning being so calm, we spent 70+ minutes travelling 1.1kms (as the crow flies). Beyond that, the experience...More

Wow, amazing experience

This was booked as a surprise trip for me. A little apprehensive at the start but was made to feel very comfortable. It became the most amazing experience. It is so quiet in the air and it seems that you stay still and the ground...More
