Outback Ballooning

Air, Helicopter and Balloon Tours

Outback Ballooning has been operating in Alice Springs since 1986, and is one of Australia’s longest established ballooning companies.

They operate everyday (weather permitting), and have a fleet of balloons suitable for 2-4 people, up to 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 people in one balloon depending on number of bookings for the day.

Private charters are also available on request and are perfect for honeymooners wanting a romantic experience!

The setting over the remote desert, serviced by a few bush tracks, enhances the sense of adventure for clients. The location ensures passengers are treated to the spectacular colours of the early morning dawn over the MacDonnell Ranges.

On most days you’ll see Australian wildlife, including red kangaroos, in their natural environment.

The reliable desert weather means one of the lowest cancellation rates in the world.

Refreshments include muffins, banana bread, carrot cake, cheese and biscuits and fresh fruit accompanied by sparkling wine and fruit juice – served ‘in the bush’ after every flight. Return transfers included.
