About Us

Global Ballooning prides itself on being Australia's most professional hot air ballooning company. Our focus is on our passengers' comfort, safety and enjoyment.

Global Ballooning is headed up by Kiff Saunders - our Director and Chief Pilot. He brings to the company a huge wealth of aviation experience. With over 25 years of flying experience and having flown balloons in over 10 countries around the world, including three world ballooning championships, Kiff is Victoria's most experienced balloonist. He is responsible for training many of the commercial hot air balloon pilots flying in Victoria today and his achievements have been recognised by his induction into the Australian Ballooning Federation Hall of Fame. Kiff also holds the ‘Absolute Australian Altitude Record' for hot air ballooning.

With 15 balloons and over 40,000 passengers flown safely, we welcome you to join our dedicated team to experience the joy of 'lighter than air' balloon flights over Melbourne or the Yarra Valley.
