Hot air ballooning is quite magical. Noisy one moment, quiet the next, ever changing, never dull. It's fun, it's crazy, wild yet safe. Even people who are frightened of heights say it's different. Your flight will last about an hour but the memory will last a lifetime.

Ballooning is one of those things people often say “I must do that one day”. Well once you have tried it you’ll probably want to do it again (and again)!

We meet an hour before sunrise. And to experience the sunrise from the Balloon is breathtaking. Even when the clouds hide the sun, the experience is lovely. Mystical even and ethereal. To see the historic township of Strathalbyn from the air will bring out the photographer in you. The valleys and hills are majestic. We can also do things that can't be done in other types of aircraft. Low-flying at low speed, seeing wildlife close-up. Depending on wind speed, we fly up to about 30km in an hour and almost never back to where we took off from. To save a long walk back, the crew follows us with balloon trailers, help us pack up and take us to breakfast.

All outings include sparkling wine, chocolates, orange juice and nibbles followed by cooked breakfast when we get back to town. Everyone that flies with us receives a beautiful A4 coloured flight certificate with their name on it and signed by the pilot of the day.

Please note: Flights are not frequently available between September and February due to fluctuating weather conditions.

This experience voucher is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

Venue:

Strathalbyn - 50 minutes from Adelaide.

Session Length

Allow approx 4 hours from the time we meet to the end of breakfast. Time in the air is usually approximately an hour depending on weather conditions.

Guidelines:

Passengers must be independently mobile in case of emergency. Must not suffer from fits/seizures. Our operators advise against taking children under 8 as they do tend to have a short attention span and may spoil the flight for their fellow passengers. Ladies over 26 weeks pregnant should call us.

Numbers:

The price quoted is for one person. There will be other passengers with you in the basket with you during your flight.

Spectators:

Friends are welcome to watch the rigging of the balloon, to follow it as it's flying, to join you and the other passengers at the end of the flight and to come along to the celebratory breakfast for just the cost of the meal.

Weather:

Ballooning can only be done in good weather. The colder the weather, the better it is. Once you have booked we ask you to phone our operators in the late afternoon prior to flying for their GO/NO GO decision. If the forecast includes rain or winds of more than 15 kph, they will not fly.

Other Info:

Cameras are welcome on board. Digital photography now appears to give endless opportunity; however there are finite factors such as memory capacity and battery charge. Don’t get let down, come prepared.

Rated 4 out of 5 by it was something we will never forget we were a little nervous about taking the flight but thankfully we didn't back out. what a peaceful way to fly we weren't even aware that we had taken off until were were about 6mtrs in the air, weather conditions were good and taking off when it was still quite dark made the site of the glowing balloon spectacular and to be geeted by a wonderful sunrise was the cream on the cake. The pilot and ground crew were great and seemed just as excited as we were and telling all the stories with a glass of champane and a big country breakfast after the flight capped it all off perfectly. 12 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really lovely experience It was difficult to actually get this experience done, as hot air ballooning is very temperamental in terms of weather conditions, but it was well worth the wait. The staff were excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed our morning! 17 November 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by The flight was amazing - we had the best time - we would love to do it again - great way to celebrate my 50th birthday. 12 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by We had a lovely experience. From start to finish. The staff were both professional and friendly and helpful at the same time, covering health and safety issues, answering questions, and giving information. The experience was awesome, I couldn't imagine the feeling of floating above the world, the wondering of "where will we land" in the gully?, in the trees?, and the landing itself so gentle. We felt so safe the whole time, even leaning over and looking underneath, waving to our familes, no feelings of fear of heights, Ian was so calm and confident, the whole experience was very special. 6 May 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by We absolutely loved it. The crew were fantastic and very friendly. The balloon ride was amazing, so smooth and such beautiful views. The whole experience from the cool early morning start, helping with set up of the 'envelope' (balloon), the ride, the champagne and chocolates after landing, pack up and finally a yummy cooked breakfast, was awesome! I highly recommend to anyone thinking of doing this. 6 May 2012
