Get involved in the inflation and deflation of the balloon or stand back in awe as you prepare to take to the skies. Floating up above during the tranquil flight your pilot will point out the beautiful countryside scenery and at times you will even fly low enough to see kangaroos jumping around in the paddocks below.

As the balloon flight comes to an end enjoy a yummy restaurant breakfast before the next adventure at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. The interactive wildlife sanctuary has over 130 koalas and offer the chance to cuddle a koala, hand feed kangaroos and wallabies plus spy on platypus in their unique swimming enclosure.

  • 1) The BKC program may potentially, in total, be rescheduled/swapped to another day subject to Floating Images availability
  • 2) If the flight booking cannot be scheduled to another day; you can still experience on that same day the Koalas & Cruising components of the BKC package by:
  • (a) Having your breakfast at either the accommodation venue or alternative breakfast venue of your choice and cost (completed by approximately 9am-9.15am)

  • 4) If the balloon flight component of the package is unable to be rescheduled and not undertaken during the Brisbane visit, the ballooning component only will be refunded/deducted from the BKC package price.
