The Big Beagle is coming to Canberra

Have you heard the news? Canberra's getting a Big Beagle to rival Bodalla’s Big Cheese.

Canberra's Enlighten Festival have announced the special shape that will feature at the Canberra Balloon Spectacular – spoiler alert, it’s a Big Beagle!

Beagle Maximus, or Max as he is known to his friends, is the largest Beagle hot air balloon in the world.

This magnificently crafted hot air balloon will feature for the first time at this festival 9-17 March 2019, as part of a fleet of over 30 hot air balloons which will take to the sky. Each day from 6:15am pilots will begin inflating their balloons on the lawns of Old Parliament House before ascending into the sky and creating a picturesque backdrop for Canberra’s national attractions.

Passengers can experience the thrill of hot air ballooning over Canberra at sunrise while spectators on the ground are treated to an experience of the senses. Flurries of colour, sound and movement complemented by live music, hot drinks and a delicious breakfast. Visitors from the South Coast love this festival and make their way up the Clyde Mountain every year You can find out more at
