Where is it?
How to see it for yourself?
These balloons are taking part in the annual Canberra Festival Balloon Spectacular. However, rides can be booked at any time of year with operators such as Balloon Aloft (balloonaloft.com) and Dawn Drifters (dawndrifters.com.au).
Why I love it
“Rising above it all at dawn in a balloon is one of the most memorable, shifting views. Canberra is one of the few capital cities people can fly over to appreciate the geometry of the city’s design.” – Kathy Tricolas, Australian Capital Tourism
