Outback Ballooning Alice Springs

Your day begins in the cool pre-dawn darkness as you are picked up from your accommodation in Alice Springs. The balloon flight takes place to the south of Alice Springs over historic Owen Springs Station adjacent to the MacDonnell Ranges. Once floating gently in the air you will appreciate the vast remoteness of the Australian Outback. Wildlife, particularly big red kangaroos are seen nearly every day as the balloon crosses spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations.  Refreshments (a selection of muffins, slices and biscuits, cheese and fresh fruit) accompanied by Australian sparkling wine and fresh juice will be served ‘in the bush’ after every balloon flight. Return transfers and a souvenir flight certificate completes the morning adventure.
