Wake up to the amazing view of hot air balloons floating across the Canberra skies with the Canberra Balloon Spectacular running from 7 – 15 March with the pilots ready to launch their balloons on the lawns of Old Parliament House at 6:15am.
The best spots to check out are the lawns of Old Parliament House for inflation and launch, the foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin near Queen Elizabeth Terrace, Regatta Point, Henry Rollings Park and the National Museum for the views of balloons over the water and the National Arboretum for the balloons sailing over the hills to land. If you’d like to be part of the view, make sure to book a balloon flight at Balloon Aloft.
Over 30 colourful balloons from around the globe will brighten up the sky to create an experience of the senses with colour, sound and movement complemented by live music. If you’re hungry there will be hot drinks and breakfast available to purchase.
