One of the best and most peaceful ways to see the sights of Canberra is with a hot air balloon ride with Balloon Aloft or Dawn Drifters.

Rise before dawn and take to the skies in time to see the early morning sun fill the valleys and lakes with soft morning light.

Savour the serenity as you drift slowly over Canberra’s iconic national attractions. Did you know Canberra is the only city in the world where you will find yourself drifting over a nation’s Parliament House?

Once you’ve returned to the ground, celebrate your adventure with a glass of bubbly and breakfast at one of Canberra’s many delicious cafes.
