Any form of disablement must be discussed with Outback Ballooning prior to making a booking. Each person is considered on an individual basis. The flight and carriage of any passenger will take place at the pilot’s discretion.
Weather Conditions – Safety is our primary concern and if we are prevented from flying due to unsuitable weather conditions, passengers may either re-book for another day or receive a full refund. The pilot’s decision with regard to flying conditions is final.
Where possible, the balloon flight should always be booked for the first available day in the area to allow for re-booking in case of bad weather.
Depending on many operational factors, which vary each day, passengers may be on the ground or in the balloon when the sun is actually coming over the horizon or rising, either way they will still see an amazing dawn.
