Flying season: all year round. Flights take place year-round as long as weather permits. If the dates of your trip are not available on our calendar when you go to book, please contact us, and we can attempt to open up availability.
Sunrise Flights: 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.
Where We Fly: 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.
We Care: 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 Experience: 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.
Gift vouchers: Are you trying to find a unique gift for a special person in your life? Let us help. We offer vouchers for children and adults for any of our locations.
When and where we meet: We meet approximately one hour and a half before Sunrise at NOVOTEL on the waterfront, 10-14 Eastern Beach, Geelong, where we return at the end of the flight for a great breakfast if you have chosen this option. Also, you must expect to be with us for between 3 to 4 hours.
