The Canberra Balloon Spectacular is one of the longest running hot air ballooning events in the world. Join us this March as the festival celebrates its 29th year.
The event is one of a kind and one of the few places in the world where hot air balloons can fly so close to houses of government and buildings of national significance.
There is truly no better way to start each cool Canberra Autumn morning than by participating in the Balloon Spectacular. Held over nine days, pilots will begin laying out and inflating their balloons on the lawns of Old Parliament House before they ascend into the sky to create an exhilarating back drop to our national attractions within the Parliamentary Zone.
Joining the 2015 Canberra Balloon Spectacular will be special shapes from across the globe who will fill the Canberra sky each day. Patrons will be treated to an experience of the senses with a flurry of colour, sound and movement. The atmosphere of the balloons is complemented by delicious hot breakfast available for purchase provided by the Belconnen Lions Club.
