RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.

Flying in formation behind your launch aircraft you reach 3000 feet, pull the release, peel off and trim to cruising speed. Experience the wonder of gliding, learning how to control the aircraft, banking left and right. This is flying in its purest form.
To start your gliding introductory flight, you will be met by the Duty Instructor and be shown around the glider and explained the controls. The fleet consists of modern two seat fibreglass Grob 103 sailplanes.
You are strapped in the front seat, with a qualified instructor in the rear and launched by a power plane to about 3,000 feet. The instructor conducts the launch and release and then (if you like) it will be your turn to try your hand at gliding.
Shallow and sharp turns, slow speed and high speed runs or just enjoy a peaceful flight over the countryside. The choice is yours. When it is time to land, see what it is like to join the circuit and do a pinpoint landing!
This will be followed by a debrief and your friends and family will be able to photograph your adventure.
For groups, please book your flying day in advance so extra aircraft can be made available. Due to the popularity of these flights there may be a waiting time of 4 to 6 weeks when you book.
In the event of rain or inclement weather, your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider. If the experience is cancelled due to poor weather, you will be rescheduled by the experience provider directly.
It is recommended that you bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen.
Customers will need to fill out and sign an Introductory Membership Application to the Gliding Federation of Australia and abide by those conditions.
This experience takes place in Gawler, SA.
