Operator inflating a hot air balloon


Take off with the sunrise in a hot air balloon and drift gently with the wind. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city’s architectural wonders and design, and finish with a champagne celebration at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra. What better way to start the day?

There’s no better way to fully appreciate Canberra’s charm than from the air with the multi-award winning Balloon Aloft, Canberra’s original balloon ride operator.

Pay less to fly on a weekday.

Balloon flights last between forty-five minutes and an hour. An optional five star full buffet breakfast is available after the champagne toast for an extra fee.

Balloon rides are weather dependant so be prepared for an early morning update.
