Canberra Balloon Spectacular 2018

Wake up to the view of hot air balloons floating across the city during the Enlighten Festival’s Canberra Balloon Spectacular.

This mesmerising view is best appreciated from the lawns of Old Parliament House. Held over nine days, more than thirty hot air balloons from across the globe are expected to take to our skies this autumn. Remember to keep an eye out for the special shape balloons.

Each day from 6:15 am pilots will begin inflating their balloons on the lawns of Old Parliament House before ascending into the sky and creating a picturesque backdrop for Canberra’s national attractions.

Passengers can experience the thrill of hot air ballooning over Canberra at sunrise while spectators on the ground are treated to an experience of the senses. Flurries of colour, sound and movement complemented by live music and a delicious hot breakfast available for purchase from the Belconnen Lions Club will make your morning one to remember.

For balloon flight bookings call Balloon Aloft on 02 6285 1540. Free viewing for spectators.

Balloon flights are weather dependent. Call Canberra Connect, follow us on Facebook and Twitter or tune into local radio stations from 6:15 am for daily information.

Happening 10 – 18 March 2018 from 6:15 am on the Lawns of Old Parliament House at King George Terrace, Parkes.
