    It was such an amazing experience flying with global ballooning Australia! The pilot Clem and the crew are awesome and exceptionally professional. Truly grateful to the team for the timely arrangement after we got to the wrong meeting point and were supposed to miss the flight. Thanks the team very much! We had a wonderful flight. Will definitely recommend to my friends and would love to do it again.

    Received notification the evening before to confirm the trip - the nerves settled in. I’m a shorty myself so I was worried how I was going to get in the balloon honestly. They have little grooves in the basket to step up and Baz helped support me to get in. We met at the meeting place, a nice hotel in with a cheap flat parking rate for those doing a hot air balloon experience. We made our way down to the park. Cool seeing how they set up the ballon. Eddie was quite open and transparent that the trip may have been shorter as it all depends on the wind but it didn’t feel like it! The weather was brilliant, that sunrise shone over the city and surrounding and we were still able to see the beauty of everything below..didn’t look like tiny specks. We landed on a field smoothly. It was a team effort packing the balloon up. On the way back Eddie sent everyone photos from the go pro and a Timelapse which is amazing. Thanks so much to Eddie and Baz. Loved this experience!!

    I recently enjoyed my third breathtaking flight with Global Ballooning in Yarra Valley, and each experience continues to surpass my expectations. The professionalism of their team, coupled with the stunning views, makes it a must-do activity in Melbourne. The breakfast, deserving of five stars, adds the perfect finishing touch to an already unforgettable adventure. Highly recommend Global Ballooning for an exceptional hot air balloon experience.
