Wake up to the view of hot air balloons floating across the city with the Canberra Balloon Spectacular. This mesmerising view is best appreciated from the lawns of Old Parliament House,
over a hot breakfast as you watch the balloons inflate. Held over nine days, from Saturday 10 March to Sunday 18 March, more than thirty hot air balloons from across the globe will take
to the skies. Passengers can experience the thrill of hot air ballooning over Canberra at sunrise while spectators on the ground are treated to an experience of the senses. For more information please visit
