There is no better way to start the day than by taking off in a graceful hot air balloon over Cairns with a peaceful ride over the picturesque Atherton Tablelands. From this unique vantage point it is easy to see why tropical North Queensland is the hot air ballooning capital of the world! This ultimate scenic experience is an absolute must-do activity and also includes transport to and from your accommodation in Port Douglas. Enjoy drifting over the hills and watch the sun rise before floating back down to earth to be transferred to your next adventure for the day!

Your next portion of the combo tour from Port Douglas is a day out on the Great Barrier Reef. You will be transferred to meet the reef cruise taking you to visit a reef activity platform out on the Great Barrier, from here you can snorkel, swim and explore to your hearts content! Even if you donโ€™t want to swim there is plenty to see and do โ€“ you can even explore the underwater realm via the underwater observatory check out the fish on a semi-submersible reef viewing tour! The reef cruise includes morning and afternoon tea and a buffet lunch, use of snorkel gear, and an eco-reef talk!

Get to bed early the night before the tour, as you will be up very early for ballooning then will be exerting plenty of energy snorkelling out at the reef.
