The most amazing balloon flight over the Burketown area!

Last night we went on the most amazing balloon flight over the Burketown area. Spectacular scenery over all the river systems & salt pans. You could see as far as the Gulf of Carpentaria. The rivers meeting the ocean. Definitely a bucket list thing to do. The pilot Clay Rix was great. Felt safe and in good hands. Deano. Was also great. Full of information about the surrounding area, the local aboriginal people etc. If your travelling this way, put a Balloons Aloft flight on your to do list. A MUST DO EXPERIENCE. Thanks to Clay, Deano & BALLOONS ALOFT.

Burketown, you did it to me again!

I've been to visit twice now and both times you've blown my mind. Not only are the land and river systems amazing but the people have been so welcoming too. There's a feeling about the place over all that i can't put my finger on bur learning about the land and history from the traditional owners has been an experience i'll never forget... View all on Instagram


Excellent way to experience the unique area

.... terrific overview of traditional and historical aspects of Burketown. Our tag along tour was a great insight into the area culminating in a traditional bush tucker and billy tea conclusion.
A must in Burketown!
