Whether you are a first-time visitor or a local who loves exploring, let us show you the most beautiful spots in Australia that will captivate and thrill your senses at the same time. Here are four Australian landmarks that you should see while on a hot air balloon.
- The Three Sisters
Located in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, The Three Sisters is Australia’s most famous rock formation. According to legend, three sisters turned into sandstone after falling in love with three brothers from the opposite tribe. The stunning pillars stand 900 metres tall or about 3000ft. It lights up during sunset, which transforms the rock formation into a lovely golden hue. Experience this moment on a hot air balloon and see its beauty unravel in front of you.
- Kiama Blow Hole
The Kiama Blow Hole is a natural rock formation that spouts 20 metres of water in the air. Since it is open during the day and night, the amazing display attracts more than 600,000 tourists every year. While in the sky, you can watch the Blow Hole’s water splash into the ocean, and appreciate the Kiama Lighthouse standing beside it.
- The Heart Reef
The Heart Reef is a part of the world-famous Great Barrier Reef located in the state of Queensland. This famous Australian icon is one of the bluest and clearest bodies of water in the country. On a clear day, you can see the heart-shaped reef glisten with the sun’s rays and slowly outline the waters. Beach lovers should not miss seeing this.
Formerly known as Ayers Rock, Uluru is the world’s largest monolith. For more than 300 years, the heritage site boasts of unique land forms that change from red to orange every other time. Comprising sand, feldspar, and sea floor stone, the 348 metre formation is definitely breathtaking when viewed from above.
