When you charter the Floating Images hot air balloon you get:

Exclusive use of the balloon

Charter our balloon for your next birthday, family reunion, school reunion, team building activity, client or staff reward, anniversary, wedding or special occasion. An exclusive balloon ride allows you to hire one of our hot air balloons, including pilot and crew, for use with your invited guests.

Choose the location

We can tailor our standard flight program for up to 10 passengers to take off from a specific location. Perhaps you own a large rural property and would love to see it from 1500-2500 feet above, or grew up in a specific town and want to see the region from the air.

Some of our previous charter flights have seen the Floating Images hot air balloon fly from Spicers Hidden Vale, Bundaberg, Gympie, Dalby, Oakey, Brookstead, Allora, Warwick, Boonah, Lowood, Esk, Grandchester and Emerald. Our customers agree that this is the most amazing way to see your region. 

Hosting a conference, workshop, family gathering or occasion at either Spicers Hidden Vale, Ivory Rock Conference Centre, Woodlands of Marburg, Cherrabah Resort or somewhere else within the region - why not ask us to come out and fly your group? 

Choose the balloon size

We have two hot air balloons that can cater for 2 to 10 people. Our smaller balloon is perfect for small groups of up to 4 to 5 people, while our larger balloon comfortably carries up to 10 people and is ideal for family, friends, personal, social and corporate groups.

The balloon experience

You’re invited to assist our crew prepare the balloon for flight. Once aboard the wicker basket, the balloon will float gently upwards and then drift with the breeze for approximately one hour, giving you plenty of time to soak in no-doubt spectacular 360-degree views and breathtaking scenery.

If you book the larger balloon size Floating Images has a remote control in-flight camera that we use to take pictures before, during and after the flight. Talk about a unique family portrait!

What’s for breakfast?

When we touch back down on solid ground the crew will meet and assist with the balloon pack-down. From here we will transport you back to our nominated restaurant for breakfast, or you may arrange your own after-flight breakfast gathering. During breakfast, we present your personalised commemorative flight certificates.

How long does it take?

The whole ballooning experience will take 3-4 hours – but your unforgettable memories will last a lifetime!

“We had a group of 10 to take a Hot Air Balloon ride for my father-in-law's 70th birthday. The guys at Floating Images were fabulous and were more than happy to organise our departure from the family farm in Kalbar. It made my father-in-law's day/year! He and his brothers enjoyed the amazing flight over the neighbouring properties and enjoyed the view of the countryside they grew up in. Thank you to Floating Images. We couldn't recommend you enough!” Kellie, August 2018
