hot air balloon Flight Locations
Finally!! A balloon company that decides to fly in Tassie!
After many years with no hot air balloon flying over the Natural State, Liberty Balloon Flights arrived in Tasmania and put an end to the void. With 25 years of experience flying in many locations in Australia and around the World, Liberty Balloon Flights started operations on this Summer of 2018/2019.
We fly the North of the state. This can be The Tamar Valley, Launceston, Meander Valley, the Northern Midlands and Deloraine. On days with light Northerly winds we might even take off close to the coast, who knows but the wind?. We try to give you the best views on the day whilst normally targeting the Northern Midlands to land. The experience is for locals and tourists, so help us to get the word out there so we can return every Summer.
Check the calendar to see our availability and book yourself in, contact us on email@example.com or talk to us on 1800 BALLOON (22 55 66) to ask us about what we do. We look forwards to hearing from you!
Depending on the forecasted wind direction,
we decide the day prior to your flight if we will meet passengers at:
658 Woolmers Lane, Longford
The Sebel Launceston,
12-14 St John Street, Launceston
Whichever location we decide on in the morning, we will return you to this location at the end of the flight
About the Experience
Yes, we start early! As early as 04:30 a.m. in the Summer and as late as 06:30 a.m. in Winter. We follow the Sun and tend to meet approximately 1½ hours before Sunrise at a convenient location which will be confirmed to you prior to the balloon flight. From here we will drive you, in our vehicles, to the launch site.
Hot air balloons float in the wind, so we have many different take off locations, depending on the wind direction on the day. We like to call the experience “audience participation” which means, if you are game and able to, there are tasks for all who want to take part in this most ancient way to fly. Half an hour is what it takes to prepare these gentle giants. Once on board we lift gently–so gently it constantly amazes passengers–you do not feel height-sick.
Ballooning is not an adrenaline sport, it is a sport where we contemplate, we admire, we see the Sun rise above the horizon, we hear the waking countryside, the city at dawn…. Ballooning is special. As an old English lady once said to us, “balloons are one of the few things built by humankind that truly enhance nature.” We enjoy what we do, and we aim to hear that you loved the morning you spent with us.
