Outback Ballooning is poised to launch the first service ever over Australia’s Ayers Rock/Uluru in March.
The half-hour flights will float over the Patji region south of Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park approaching Ayers Rock/Uluru from the south, depending on wind direction, while the rock formations of Kata Tjuta will be illuminated by the sunrise from the West.
The four-hour excursion is being created with the support of the Anangu, the area’s traditional Aboriginal inhabitants. Priced at about $462 for adults, $370 for children age 6 to 16, the package will include breakfast.
