While you are in the air your pilot will take a photograph of everyone in the basket, from a camera suspended from the envelope of the balloon. Photographs are also taken once you land, and you can purchase any of these during the comfort stop.

New ballooning brand for Raging Thunder

New ballooning brand for Raging Thunder

By Cairns Hot Air Balloon Co.

05 Apr 2017

Raging Thunder Adventures has rebranded its ballooning experience as Cairns Hot Air Balloon Co to tap into the growing number of international travellers booking directly online.

Skydive the Beach Director Anthony Boucat, whose Wollongong-based ASX company purchased Raging Thunder Adventures in October 2016, said Cairns Hot Air Balloon Co would continue to deliver the incredible experience of floating over Mareeba and its farmlands at dawn.

“The number of independent travellers wanting to go ballooning is growing, and research shows our new brand will perform better in the digital market as well as aligning with the international destination marketing of Cairns & Great Barrier Reef,” he said.

Thank you to the the crew for the help with the surprise 60th! They absolutely loved the adventure and highly recommend this company and the spectacular experience. Your staff were very welcoming, friendly and organised. We appreciated also giving them extra flying time. The big kids also enjoyed the chase from the ground to watch the take off and landing! Thanks for a wonderful morning!!!!

0 Elizabeth Stuart

From pick up to drop off this was a top notch operation making for an awesome experience over the amazing Atherton Tablelands. Our tour guides Osamu and Eleven, our driver Harry, our pilot Dave and ground support Adrian all made sure we had the best experience possible. Would absolutely recommend it as a must do if you are in Cairns.

How to get to Cairns Hot Air Balloon Co.

As the sun rises your pilots gently lift off and quietly glide the balloons over the panorama of the Cairns Highlands (also known as the Atherton Tablelands).
Afterwards you are treated to a wonderful breakfast at the Mareeba Heritage Centre, before being returned to your accommodation or Kuranda with plenty of time to enjoy other tours in the same day.
