Hot Air Balloon Flight over Geelong
Enjoy the spectacular views from a balloon basket and experience this ancient sport in your area. We give you the finest experience of free flight in a balloon in the whole of Australia, hands down. View the Sun rise over the horizon with pilots who are the first operators in Geelong. We fly higher that any other operation in the country to give you the best views.
Our launch sites will vary depending on the wind direction on the day, choosing a location to take off and give you the best views possible for that flight. On a South-Easterly wind flow we might take off from the Bellarine Peninsula, with straight Easterlies we can launch from the city itself and on many occasions we launch to the West or North West, in Murgheboluc or Bannockburn, enjoying the views of the Barrabool Hills. The views are always stunning, with Port Phillip Bay to our East, the Ocean to the South, the Barwon River arriving from the West and the small You Yangs to the North.
Depending on the wind direction, we shall choose launch locations that keep us away from the bay and Avalon Airport, but trying at the same time to give you the best views at Sunrise that the day can offer.
Magical balloon flights over or close to Geelong take place regularly at sunrise, which is the safest and most awe-inspiring time of day. At this time of the morning, the landscape slowly comes to life as we drift along, held in a timeless capsule with views of the urban and rural landscapes around Geelong.
This is the full experience of a balloon flight with the personalised service only small groups can receive. Breathtaking views and safety assured with pilots who have been flying for over 25 years, not only in Geelong but also up and down The Andes, Patagonia, Mexico, the UK and many countries and cities around the World, including and for many years, Melbourne.
We like adventure and we make it SAFE. We call this "The Peaceful Adventure". Views across the Barrabool Hills, Port Phillip Bay to the East and the Bellarine Peninsula and the Ocean to the South in a morning (and maybe a few afternoons) you will never forget, as you participate in the oldest form of aviation, a hot air balloon flight. Champagne and chocolates or breakfast after the flight is on us!
Your happiness is our business, and we make sure you have fun while enjoying the spectacular aerial views. We take your well-being during your time with us and in our balloon seriously. Our team reviews key details with you before your flight in our safety briefing to ensure that you understand what will take place during the ride. While you are in the air, one of our vehicles follows us on the ground through visual and radio contact to meet us at our landing site, help us pack the balloon away and then drive us back to our original meeting point. If you have any hesitations, please let us know so we can help alleviate your doubts.
Our Chief Pilot has flown over 100 cities across the world and now uses his decades of experience to cultivate the most beautiful hot air ballooning experience in Australia. All our pilots are trained to direct their balloons to give you the best views imaginable.
