Join the Y Canberra Paddle Hub for a unique adventure this year – paddleboard or kayak on Lake Burley Griffin while hot air balloons fill the sky overhead and dip into the water right beside you.
Canberra’s Balloon Spectacular is a truly remarkable experience, as more than thirty hot air balloons from across the globe take flight above the lake.
The Spectacular is the only event in the world where balloons can fly so close to government buildings, iconic architecture and houses and is known as one of the four leading balloon events in the world.
The Y Canberra’s Paddle Hub will run guided stand up paddleboard and kayak adventures throughout the event.
