Nothing says “Byron Bay” like floating over the Rainbow Region in a rainbow-coloured hot air balloon. This one-hour flight starts at dawn and takes you over Byron’s beaches, forests and farms, with views to Mount Warning, and ends with a champagne breakfast. You’re in good hands: the senior pilot, Chris Dewhirst, was the first to start commercial hot air ballooning in Australia and has flown a balloon over Everest. VIP flights in your own privately chartered balloon can also be arranged.
