Alice's Secret Travellers Inn

Outback Ballooning (AU$295)

 

 

Experience the breathtaking feeling of floating silently above the Outback as the sun slowly rises over the desert on this awe-inspiring Outback ballooning adventure.

Journey to the launch site in the cool pre dawn darkness and begin the ascent just as the morning light begins to illuminate the rugged MacDonnell Ranges. Float gently across the vast expanse of the Central Australian outback – keeping an eye out for native wildlife including the iconic red kangaroo and gain an appreciation of the remoteness of the area as the balloon glides across the landscape.

The flights run throughout the year. Children aged 3-5 years are not recommended but considered on an individual basis.

    Covid-19 Information

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our operations have been severely impacted. So here’s some info on how we are going about all this.

    We are OPEN for business and looking forward to welcoming you here with us :-).
    We are working closely with the Department of Health. Hence you can be assured that we are going the extra mile to keep our staff, current and future guests safe.

    Here's what YOU can do to support us in our efforts:

    • Ensure you are up to date and comply with the current rules and restrictions for the NT and the Alice Springs area. See https://coronavirus.nt.gov.au for more detailed and up to date information.

    • Cancel your booking ASAP should you feel unwell or be unable to travel. Last minute cancellations are a big issue for a small family run business like us, so we need to know if you can't make it.

    • Inform us of your estimated arrival time so we can give you a warm and friendly welcome.

    Please note that we reserve the right to cancel reservations at any time if we are under the impression that accepting a booking will keep us from complying with the rules.
