Flying high for school holidays
TAKE off on an adventure these school holidays with Hot Air Balloon Mareeba.
The local business has been operating for more than 20 years and will have balloon flights taking off every day during the school holidays.
Hot Air Balloon Mareeba owner Andrew Steel said flights are ideal presents for Christmas and any time of the year.
He wished everyone all the best for the festive season and thanked farmers and landholders for their kind assistance and all their support.
“If it’s something special you’re after these holidays, book a ride and hop on-board to float up, up and away,” Mr Steel said.
“There are also cameras on remote controls from the basket, so it’s easy to capture the whole family floating in a balloon and capture a very special memory.”
Mr Steel said farming and tourism had worked well together, which makes the views from Hot Air Balloon Mareeba extra special for locals.
“It’s amazing just how many kilometres they can see over the Tablelands,” he said.
“Each day in December and January, up to 10 balloons will be flying, including the koala, kangaroo and Aussie balloons, so it’s an excellent time to book a balloon ride to see the wonder and spectacle that is just like a balloon festival, but here in our own backyard.”
Book a ride with Hot Air Balloon Mareeba these holidays or maybe give a Christmas or Birthday Hot Air Balloon Gift Voucher. The vouchers are valid one year, fully transferable and you can use them on any date.
