About Canberra

Canberra is the seat of Federal Government in Australia, located only 3 hours drive SW of Sydney, in an area known as the Australian Capital Territory.  Canberra is 2 hours drive from the snowfields and 1½ hours from the NSW South Coast.

Canberra is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and there is no better way to appreciate all of its natural charms, than from a Balloon Aloft flight.

In addition to our magnificent Federal Government buildings, Canberra is full of museums, galleries, excellent sporting venues, wineries and many other tourist attractions.  There is plenty for visitors to do before or after a balloon flight.  For more information Visit Canberra at

Early morning balloon flights are scheduled daily, weather permitting.
