Take part in the peaceful adventure of a balloon flight at dawn
Experience views you will never forget
Join loved ones or treat yourself to a classic activity on peoples' bucket list
Meet at a Rydges hotel in Geelong where you can park easily. From here, you will climb into one of the minibusses or 4x4 Troop Carriers. Hot air balloons float in the wind, so you will therefore begin by heading upwind to one of the various launch sites, where you can prepare the balloon for your flight.
Preparations take around half an hour, throughout which passengers are welcome to help out if they are able and wish to. Following a safety briefing by your pilot after the balloon has been fully prepared, it will be time to take to the skies. It never stops amazing passengers how gentle ballooning is as an experience. When you go ballooning, you are not participating in an adrenaline sport, but are rather participating in what your guides like to refer to as 'the gentle adventure of floating in the wind'.
Ballooning is an experience of enjoying the warm rays of the early morning sun, it is about enjoying the views, about sharing the moment with loved ones and friends, and can also simply be a gift people give to themselves. A hot air balloon flight is always an unforgettable experience, and each flight is different.
Admire majestic views of Geelong and its surrounding area, the bay, the Barrabool Hills to the West, and the Barwon River. After packing the balloon away following your activity, you will be driven back to your original meeting place, where you will have the option of enjoying a delicious breakfast with the rest of the passengers and crew if you so wish.
