Hotair Ballooning from Uluru?

We're planning a few days in Uluru in Feb. I've always wanted to try hotair ballooning, but we can't really afford the time or expense of travelling to Alice Spings. Does anyone know if it's possible to do this from Uluru?

And anyone who has tried this in Alice Springs - is it worth it?

Not sure that you can actually do this at Uluru. Voyages would have it up on their website if it could be done. The only link is to Alice Springs. I don't recall seeing anything advertised to do it whilst I was last there.

Hi- i don't think you can do hot air ballooning at Uluru- it would be great if you could wouldn't it ! How are you getting to Uluru ? Some flights fly direct but some go through Alice Springs, that's all, so if you were flying, spending a night en-route to Uluru really wouldn't cost much more. I've done a hot air balloon flight in Alice Springs and it was wonderful. A couple of days and nights at Uluru will be plenty to see everything so if you have a 3rd day and as it's something you've always wanted to do- i'd spend it in Alice Springs and take your balloon flight.

At the moment you definately cant hot air balloon at Uluru. Hopefully its not too far in the future until this will be available though...
