Experience the adventure and romance of ballooning

Picture yourself tucked into a big wicker basket, a gentle breeze taking you on a sky-high adventure above South East Queensland. Each morning owner and Chief Pilot Graeme shares the magic of flying and his intimate local knowledge of the Greater Brisbane region from the air. Launching just one flight per day with 4-10 passengers, Floating Images offers a boutique and personalised balloon experience.

One pilot, one balloon – you’ll be in safe hands

Owner and Chief Pilot Graeme Day operates every Floating Images flight. He has more than 30 years’ commercial ballooning experience on three continents and a fiery passion for the local area. Since 2001, we have been operating in the Greater Brisbane region, floating above the heritage city of Ipswich, the Scenic Rim and Somerset countryside. We fly one balloon a day, and have one goal – to make your ballooning ride a safe and memorable experience you’ll never forget.

Why experience a flight with Floating Images?

Closest hot air balloon company to Brisbane

Floating Images is the closest hot air balloon company to Brisbane, and has been operating in the South-East Queensland region for more than 22 years. Our meeting point is an easy 30-minute drive from Brisbane and you can also reach us by train or bus.

Every flight is with the Owner and Chief Pilot

Owner and Chief Pilot Graeme Day has 30 years’ experience flying balloons on three continents. He first fell in love with ballooning in its birthplace, France, and now finds joy sharing his cheeky wit, intimate knowledge of the local region and passion for ballooning with passengers. You can be confident booking with Floating Images as Graeme flies every balloon and has been running this business in the Greater Brisbane region since 2001.

One flight a day, only 4-10 passengers

We are a boutique balloon business and only operate one flight per day with no more than 10 passengers. Keeping things small means every person gets five-star treatment on a Floating Images flight.

Experience the city and the country

Our hot air balloon flights offer a unique opportunity to fly over city and country sights. Floating Images is the first and only balloon company that flies over the heritage city of Ipswich and western regions of the Scenic Rim and Somerset.

From the air you can see incredible bird’s-eye views of Queensland’s oldest provincial city of Ipswich, the Great Dividing Range mountains, Brisbane’s skyline, the countryside of the Scenic Rim and Somerset and plenty more. Find out more about where we fly and what you can see here.

It’s a personal, hands-on experience

From booking through to flying, Graeme and his wife Ruth handle every detail of the Floating Images Hot Air Balloon Flights experience. If you have any questions, expect personal service because putting smiles on passengers’ faces is our priority – it’s part of the reason why we have a five-star TripAdvisor rating and have won numerous awards.

All passengers are invited to join in the fun of inflating and deflating the giant balloon. Graeme stays with guests from start to finish and is happy to explain any aspect of how a hot air balloon flies and operates. Share the thrill of this morning adventure with your family, friends, overseas visitors, corporate guests and staff.

All inclusive

The only surprise should be that of your loved one when you give them the gift of a hot air balloon ride. We are small Australian family business and want you to have an unforgettable and joyous flying experience. The 1 hour flight, full insurance coverage, inflation & deflation site transfers, a restaurant breakfast and flight certificate are all included in the price.
