Hot Air Ballooning - The Adventure
Moving gently with the wind at 500ft, the views are simply spectacular, and there is nothing on earth that quite matches the serenity and peace you will feel up in the sky, which is so open and accessible. So whether you go hot air ballooning in Melbourne or enjoy a hot air balloon ride in Sydney or the Gold Coast, many aspects make a hot air balloon ride one of the most popular.
What happens on a Hot Air Balloon Ride?
Part of the fun is getting up early and helping the crew get the balloon ready. That is if you want to. But we reckon you will. It's all part of this beautiful day out. And when it's all set and ready to go, you'll get to feel what it is like to rise gracefully from the ground with the whoosh of the flame and be carried by nothing but air. Soar high into the sky over the sleepy city as dawn breaks and your journey begins, drifting along on the gentle breezes, over the vast trees, the softly rolling hills, and the beautiful countryside.
And when seen from the basket of a hot air balloon, you know you are seeing this wonderful region from the best place going - floating tranquilly in a hot air balloon just like they began doing in 1783. Most balloon flights go for 1 hour and at the end, you have the option to celebrate the traditional way, with champers and breakfast.
