Canberra Balloon Spectacular at Enlighten Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

7 Mar 2020 to 15 Mar 2020

Wake up to the view of hot air balloons floating across the city during the Canberra Balloon Spectacular. This mesmerising view is best appreciated from the lawns of Old Parliament House. Held over nine days, more than thirty hot air balloons from across the globe are expected to take to our skies this autumn. Remember to keep an eye out for the special shape balloon, Beagle Maximus.

Each day from 6:15am pilots will begin inflating their balloons on the lawns of Old Parliament House before ascending into the sky and creating a picturesque backdrop for Canberra’s national attractions.

Passengers can experience the thrill of hot air ballooning over Canberra at sunrise while spectators on the ground are treated to an experience of the senses. Flurries of colour, sound and movement complemented by live music and a delicious hot breakfast available for purchase from the Belconnen Lions Club will make your morning one to remember.

Balloon flights are weather dependent. Call Access Canberra, follow us on Enlighten Festival on Facebook or visit the Enlighten Festival website from 6:15am for daily information.

2020 dates are yet to be confirmed.
