Raging Thunder Hot Air Ballooning Cairns Reviews
Hot Air ballooning by sunrise... what an amazing experience! Dec 21, 2010
We 've never went ballooning before so it was a great adventure.
It’s an early start cause the pick up is at 4 am. It’s about an hour drive to Mareeba where the balloon flight takes place. It’s nice too that there are a lot of other balloons flying, a nice view like that. You get to see the sunrise, what is really beautiful. The view of the Atherton Tablelands is great too. We even saw wallabies jumping around and horses following our balloon.
You can choose an hour- or half an hour flight. We booked the one hour flight, so we took off and landed two times.
The pilot puts safety above so I didn’t fell unsafe at all.
After the flight we had a “Champagne” breakfast. It tasted really nice, and a lot to choose from. We ate at a heritage museum so we took a visit there also.
Tip: We went in the Australian winter so it was really cold. You need warm clothes!!! A winter jacket and beanies is a must!
