Global Ballooning Australia

DESCRIPTION

It’s a wonderful thing, to be able to give someone the experience of a lifetime. At Global Ballooning Australia, they have shared a sunrise with over 90,000 people over 26 years. They are proud of their safety record, and care deeply about their guests’ experience, but for them, it’s about the people they meet along the way and the pristine natural playground they call their office.

Operating 364 days a year, they rise before the sun almost every day over Melbourne city and the Yarra Valley because they believe there is something magical about experiencing the world from the sky. It starts with an alarm; that familiar shrill that drags you from bed and dares you to meet the dawn. Your adventure starts before the city stirs. Birdsong begins as balloons inflate. As the earth falls away, you rise with the sun. There is no need to travel far, and no better way to see the world’s most liveable city – Melbourne. For an hour, it’s just you and the sky. Some prefer the scenic route to the Yarra Valley, traversing roads through gnarly vineyards and misty farms until a landscape worthy of silence appears.
