Here at Global we love visiting magical Mansfield. Not only is it one the best places to fly balloons in winter, there is plenty to do and see while you're there. Read on for our picks when it comes to good food, good drinks and a guaranteed great time!
 
Stunning architecture, one of the most spectacular views of Mt Buller in the valley, plus fire pits to sip wine beside — what’s left to love? Doubling as the meeting point for our afternoon flights, we recommend booking in here for a long lunch and a glass of sparkling prior to your balloon experience that starts around 3pm.

You’ll find us here after the morning balloon flight, chatting to the locals and waiting for the best takeaway toasties you’ve ever tasted! Locally roasted, the java here is spot on, and they also do a magnificent sit down breakfast by the huge fireplace. Big recommend.
