Let us introduce you to the gentle joy and total freedom of Hot Air Ballooning
What better way to see some of the most rugged and spectacular
scenery in Central Australia? Your morning begins before dawn
when the wind is gentle and a new day is about to begin. Soaring
majestically over the terrain you will be overcome by the awesome
and vast landscape which stretches out endlessly underneath.
Watch the kangaroos grazing as the peaks of the ancient MacDonnell Ranges stretch out like a family of caterpillars
crawling over the heart of Australia.
Spinifex Ballooning has been operating in the Alice Springs area since April 1992.
Our Chief Pilot has over 20 years ballooning experience and
over 2000 hours flying time with an impeccable safety record.
We hold all the necessary Insurance and Civil Aviation Certificates
You are collected one and a half hours before sunrise from your accommodation house in Alice Springs. We then drive to the launch site, which is determined on the morning by the wind direction. We have about 20 different launch sites within 30kms of Alice Springs, and these locations are individually chosen due to their picturesque and unique settings.
