Lift Off

We are seeking locals to host our visiting balloonists from around the country who will be bringing their balloons to be apart of the Lift Off Festival on Labour Weekend.

We are seeking accommodation for these balloonists (who are donating their time for free to help make the event possible) to be hosted by local families between Wednesday 17th October to Monday 22nd October (these are maximum lengths – some will be shorter).

The balloonists travel in teams (usually families) and there will be up to 4 per group that require hosting. Host families will get free access to the whole event (both nights) and be offered opportunities to have a balloon ride (weather dependent).

For further info, please contact [email protected]


Thank you to all of the businesses that are helping to make Lift Off Abel Tasman possible.

We are extremely grateful for your support.
