A Hot Air Balloon Experience is diverse and is popular among a range of celebrations. Most commonly popular for couples to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, it is perfect for a romantic start to the day.

The Great Dividing Range is a long strip of plateaus and low mountain ranges along the (almost) entirety of the eastern coastline of Australia. And by long, we mean 3,700km’s long. It spans almost the entirety of the eastern coastline of Australia and encounters various ebbs and flows, with some truly spectacular sights along the journey. Penetrating through Queensland, NSW and Victoria, the great dividing range is a relatively short distance from many of the major cities in Australia. Due to it’s picturesque nature, many of the hot air balloon experiences in the major cities along the east coast will fly over the mountain ranges.
AirShare has hot air balloon flights in most available cities across Australia. Unfortunately due to weather constraints, experiences in Hobart are not possible.
