Canberra Balloon Spectacular 2014

For better quality or to get this in print:


Last weekend I went to Canberra Balloon Spectacular, which is an annual 1 week event held in the Parliamentary Triangle and have been held in Canberra for past 28 years. The Canberra Balloon Spectacular is listed as one of the top four hot air ballooning events in the world.


Most balloons lift off from the lawns in front of Old Parliament, and others from the National Library and National Museum. They are open to public boarding (for a fee) and provide a bird eye's view over misty Canberra - these balloons lift around 6am plus while temperatures are still hovering a little above zero.
