Carried by the wind, every flight is different. The Chief Pilot will choose the days launch site from the many locations dotted around the Mareeba Valley.  As the sun rises so do their balloons, you will be able to watch the balloons being inflated in a spectacular display. The balloon envelopes can hold up to 400,000 cubic feet of hot air!!
