Hot Air Balloon at Ipswich

Picture yourself in the balloon basket floating majestically and effortlessly over patchwork country and city landscapes, admiring a breathtaking view gently unfolding as dawn breaks.

From the air, you will soak in a bird’s-eye view of the heritage city of Ipswich, Great Dividing Range mountains, Brisbane city skyline, Scenic Rim and Somerset countryside.

After being greeted 45 minutes prior to sunrise, your pilot will brief you and your fellow passengers on the morning’s proceedings. After final weather checks by the pilot, you will then be taken to the chosen launch site, based on the mornings wind speed and direction. You might even be able to assist with the inflation of the hot air balloon. Once the balloon is inflated, the hot air balloon will lift off for your flight, which will be approximately 1 hour in duration. Whilst floating majestically and effortlessly, your balloon flight combines the city and country in one flight. Your balloon flight is tranquil yet exhilarating. As the world slowly awakens, you float peacefully overhead, witnessing the serenity in slow motion from the balloon basket.

Upon landing, you may become involved in assisting the crew in packing up the hot air balloon or taking photographs. Afterwards, your crew will return you to Ipswich for a sumptuous sit down restaurant breakfast, including a full hot breakfast and a continental breakfast. A commemorative flight certificate will be presented to each passenger to conclude the morning’s activity.
