Australia's Most Popular Balloon Ride
It's a big claim but its true - more people fly with us than with any other balloon operator in Australia and not just sometimes, it's every year from 2005 to now.  Combining Queensland year round environment with a very low cancellation rate due to the stable wind and weather, we are able to fly most days of the year, not just seasonally.   This leads to some of the best pricing available to customers.  

More Choice of flights on more days of the year
Hot Air are one of the few operators in Australia offering daily BOTH a 30 minute and a 60 minute flight option, you choose, on the day YOU want to go not based on our loadings, because we fly more people every year than any other operator we can offer you more reliable options to choose from.  Look at the fine print of the other rides around the country you may be considering and you will see that their options are not always available, particularly on weekends they will only offer you a more expensive one hour option.

Hot Air also offers a luxury option with chauffeured private transfers, 5 star breakfasts at Sea Temple Resort in Palm Cove or O'Reilly's Canungra Vineyards in the Gold Coast Hinterland - special treats for special times. Private charters are also available using our extensive fleet of balloons
