    A beautiful balloon flight in the King Valley, one of Australia's top three wine and ballooning valleys, and our most popular experience

    The picturesque King Valley offers fantastic ballooning and Goldrush Ballooning is delighted to partner with Brown Brothers Milawa Vineyard to create the perfect gourmet ballooning experience.

    Take in the beautiful King Valley and surrounds in your balloon at dawn. From the vineyards and patchwork of fields, the views expand to the King and Ovens Rivers, spectacular Mt Buffalo, and the High Country beyond. Get a real sense of this spirited wine region from aloft and the enormous potential of the region to produce European wine varietals and gourmet produce.

    Complete the experience with a Prosecco breakfast back at Brown Brothers or King River Café.

    Highly recommend gold rush ballooning. The staff were super friendly and the entire experience was very well managed from start to finish. They have a pretty cool camera rig set up so you get a cool shot of the group in the balloon. I took my partner as a surprise for her birthday, she loved it. It's a very early start but highly worth it. Bring sunglasses! My only regret.

    Super friendly and down to earth, experienced team offering a nice personal service. Breathtaking views over Mansfield from Mt Buller to lake Eildon. Breakfast at the Mansfield coffee merchant is a perfect finish for an amazing morning. Perfect way to start the day. Loved it!

    We had an amazing flight between Broken river and the Delatite river. Our pilot Paul was simply one of the best you could ask for with a gentle pinpoint precision landing . Paul and his partner Micah were so friendly and knowledgable which made the experience even more enjoyable. We had a lovely breakfast together. Thank you Paul and Micah (Sorry if that's not how you spell it Micah)
