We're now Brisbane's CLOSEST hot air balloon operator only 30mins away

We’re now the CLOSEST Hot Air Balloon operator to Brisbane! (plus heaps of other news)

Posted by Graeme Day on in Blog

Yup, you read that right! Floating Images is now Brisbane’s closest Hot Air Balloon operator with our balloon flight meeting point – simply a short 30 minute drive west of the Brisbane CBD!

The sad and unfortunate recent closure of two of our fellow South East Queensland hot air balloon operators means that we are now Brisbane’s closest hot air balloon flight provider, and while other providers in S.E. Queensland are dropping the prices on their shorter flight times to get your attention, we are putting more effort into ensuring your hot air balloon experience is better than you ever imagined it could be.

Over the last couple of months we have achieved a couple of mighty fine accomplishments on our quest to provide the best hot air balloon flights ever!

We were the FIRST tour operator in Ipswich to be awarded with the TQUAL Tick…

And we’re still the ONLY hot air balloon operator in South East Queensland to have it!

The Australian Government has released a new standard of testing tourism providers throughout the country. In addition to a review of the old AAA star rating that was awarded to accommodation providers the new TQUAL Tick is awarded to tourism providers who consistently achieve and deliver the high standards of service Australian’s expect when booking in for a tourism activity or accommodation. As a TQUAL Tick approved operator you can:

  • Be confident that your expectations will be met
  • Trust consistently high standards will deliver quality experiences
  • Gain value for money in your chosen price range
  • Enjoy quicker and easier holiday planning; and
  • Relax, knowing that you will be taken care of.

Remember though, not all tourism activities or accommodation providers are TQUAL Tick accredited y the Australian Government so be sure to look out for the logo when comparing your options – you don’t want to save a little bit of money only to receive an inferior flight!

We celebrated our 11th Birthday !
