Canberra Balloon Spectacular at Enlighten Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

6 Mar 2021 to 14 Mar 2021 Annual Event

Wake up to a view of hot air balloons floating across the city during the Canberra Balloon Spectacular. Held over nine days, the Canberra skyline will be a flurry of colour, sound and movement. Register now then head to Patrick White Lawns to watch the pilots inflate and launch their balloons from 6.15am and enjoy hot drinks and breakfast as the balloons ascend into the sky. Or for a morning to remember, experience the thrill of hot air ballooning with a balloon ride.

This event is free for spectators, however registrations are required. Balloon flights are ticketed separately.

This event is weather dependent. Daily announcements if balloons will launch and fly are made at 6.15am and published on and via the Enlighten Festival and EventsACT social channels.
