Canberra100 Balloon Festival. A new collection of stock images from Jeremy Wood. Each year Canberra hosts one of the worlds greatest Balloon Festivals. This year for Canberra’s 100th birthday its much bigger. It is a special festival because it is in the middle of Canberra, with the launch site between the lake and Parliament House. Balloons take off at dawn and conveniently that is around 7 o’clock this time of year.. View more stock photos from Jeremy Wood here.
