What you can expect

This top-selling Port Douglas hot air balloon ride includes a minimum 40 minute flight as well as a commemorative flight certificate. Absorb the breathtaking scenery of the region in and around Cairns from thousands of feet above as you garner stunning views over the greenery of the Atherton Tablelands, and breathe in the wide-open spaces that range from ocean to valley. The absolute silence of hot air ballooning only serves to heighten the sense of peace and solitude, and the contrast between the green of the rainforest to the west with the vivid blues of the famous Great Barrier Reef to the east is like a living postcard that few other people will ever get to appreciate, so be sure to bring your camera!

A hot air balloon ride - definitely one of the top things to do on your visit to Port Douglas!
