Wake up to the view of hot air balloons floating across the city during the Canberra Balloon Spectacular. This mesmerising view is best appreciated from the lawns of Old Parliament House. Held over nine days, more than thirty hot air balloons from across the globe are expected to take to our skies this autumn. Remember to keep an eye out for the special shape balloons. This year the festival features Kermie the frog and Jewel the hummingbird.
It may be the eighth year of Enlighten, but there’s no sign that the festival intends on slowing down. Proudly presented by Singapore Airlines, visitors to Enlighten Festival will get to experience the Illuminations (2-11 March) they know and love but with a bigger, better and brighter program across 16 nights in March (2-18 March).
