Happy Chinese New Year! Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands welcome holidaymakers celebrating Spring Festival as we see in the Year of the Monkey for 2016. Best way to see in the New Year? From a hot air balloon of course!

Stunning mornings at this time of year, with layers of colour as the day begins. It's easy to see how hot air balloons play follow the leader in the same calm conditions, with the furthest one in the picture the first to take off, and the subsequent aircraft following.

Always an amazing site to see so many hot air balloons in the air at once - something special about the colours.
The Lorraine Mondial Air Ballons event in France set a new world record.

Great to see Tourism Australia's global ambassador Chris Hemsworth & the Aquatic campaign, we have so many international visitors that combine our sunrise hot air balloon flight with Green Island or Great Barrier Reef tour, in fact we have over 100 visitors today, doing a Reef & Balloon combo. It's just a balloon festival everyday in Cairns. #hotairballooncairns #seeaustralia

Making the most of these stunning mornings near Cairns, visitors on board with Johan from Melbourne, Singapore, China, Japan and the United States enjoy a flight complete with mist, kangaroos, kookaburras and views for miles. #hotairballooncairns   #hotairballoon   #athertontablelands   #SeeAustralia

SINGAPORE, June 25 — It was a case of deja vu to board SilkAir’s inaugural direct flight to Cairns last month. Many Singaporeans’ would most probably be introduced to Australia through the cities of Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide or Perth; for me,

Great views out over the coastal fringe around Cairns, with Mt Whitfield off to the right.

Our flight out of Cairns was scheduled for 2 pm and we were not sure what to do in the morning. My wife and I signed up for a Hot Air Balloon ride with this company and had a great time. After getting over the shock of having to get up at 4 am in order to make the journey, we made the one hour journey to the launch site where we were met by 3 hot air balloons already to take off. We are from the US and had always wanted to take a ride but had never experienced it. After hearing about Pepe's credentials and seeing how professionally they were running everything we loaded into the basket and were swept away for 30 minutes of enjoyment. After landing we assisted in packing up the balloon and were back at our hotel by 9 am in more than enough time to make our flight. We would highly recommend this company for anyone looking for this experience.

Fantastic experience! Highly recommend! The flight was really steady and the view was really beautiful. Sun rising behind cloud, wallabies running on the ground are interesting. Although we had to get up early in the morning, we enjoyed our ballooning. Thanks to the team for giving us a unforgettable memory.

This business is a well oiled machine. From the confirmation SMS to he drop off at the hotel, everything ran extremely smoothly. Dave picked us up at 4.15am from the hotel. We then picked up a couple more groups from other hotels and made the trip to Mareeba where we had a quick toilet break before driving another 5 minutes to a property just out of town. The safety Demo was played on the bus in the trip out in Chinese, Japanese and English so everyone could easily understand it. The balloons were already well on the way to being ready for flight on our arrival. We boarded and the staff were joking and getting everyone ready for the flight. We had a very smooth take off. Shaun our pilot was excellent to deal with. We went up 2500+ metres. Shaun explained the different wind speeds and directions at various levels. The views drifting over the tablelands was just amazing! We safely landed 30 minutes later and dropped off everyone but the two of us and loaded again for flight 2. Once again, smooth take off and landing. Spectacular views as we passed right over Mareeba. We then helped pick up the balloon which was a fun experience in itself. DON'T WEAR WHITE clothing if you want to be involved in the pack down and wear runners - not thongs or heels for the ladies. Once we were packed we headed to Mareeba for a toilet break and grabbed the best coffee we had all holiday from the little trailer coffee shop in the car park before heading back to Cairns. We were back in our room having breakfast by 10am. We can't thank the team at Hot Air enough for making this one of the best experiences we've ever had on a holiday. Totally worth the 3.30am alarm! Thanks to Andrew, Dave, Eva, Lindsay and of course our exceptional pilot Shaun for making this a winning experience... Especially seeing I'm petrified of heights.

Great experience and views BUT a coffee/snack/refreshment wouldn't go astray. Pre 0400 pick up but we didn't get in the balloon until 0640. We missed sunrise while waiting for another group to have a good. Entire experience lasted five hours but we were only in the air for 30 minutes. Go with a smaller company.

We first did this three years ago and liked it so much we've come back and taken another trip. When the burners are off, the stillness and quiet give you a peaceful and serene feeling. It is also exciting when rising fast like in an elevator. The views are fantastic. I highly recommend a Hot Air Balloon ride to anyone who has not yet done one.

Fantastic experience! Despite not being able to fly the first time due to weather, booked in the very next day with no issues. Staff were great throughout the entire experience! knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and very courteous. relaxing and enjoyable, even for those nervous with heights :) would definitely make time to go again. would also highly recommend!
