Take to the sky on a spectacular dawn balloon flight in the Cairns Highlands up to 6500ft above sea level (when weather permits). As the sun rises these Cairns Hot Air Balloons gently lift off and quietly glide over the panorama of the Cairns Highlands (also known as the Atherton Tablelands). Afterwards you are returned to your Cairns Accommodation.

At the landing point passengers for flight B board the balloon, while the remaining passengers board the coach to chase the balloon to its final landing site.
