Stunning Saturday morning in CBR for the Balloon Spectacular

14 March 2015: It has been such a wonderful experience. Canberra is one of the best locations as this event provides the ever happy  balloonist’s the opportunity to put on a stunning display. Crowds can easily line the shore lines and see this spectacular from so many different angles, whether it be from the shoreline or from a water perspective….. and just think, it’s all happens right on our front door step and it totally free.

What an amazing balloon spectacular it has been and this morning didn’t disappoint. There were hot air balloons drifting on the waters of LBG and a multitude balloons floating overhead as well, with some only one a metre away me. This has been one of the best events I have ever experienced!

Doesn’t get any better than this!

Balloon Brilliance

10 March 2015: Words are really hard to describe what I have experience over the past few days during the Canberra Balloon Spectacular. Each and every day has totally blown me away with a wonderful display of colour, fun and visual overload. The best thing I have to note is how happy and enthusiastic the balloonists are! Their joy for what they do is so infectious and it is quickly transferred into the crowds that line the shore line or to the paddlers that venture out onto the water. If you were to witness an event like this anywhere else in the world you would be raving it about it to your friends and family for months. How lucky are we to have such a spectacular event right on our doorstep. Do yourself a favour and make the effort to see this truly wonderful spectacle.

A record number of balloons launched from the Lawns of Old Parliament House and adorned the Canberra skyline while SUP riders, fellow kayakers and local scullers enjoyed the colourful spectacle from the water. Even the local birdlife joined in on the parade!
