2014 Victorian Tourism Award - WINNER - Dec 7, 2014

Global Ballooning Australia were recognised this year at the Victorian Tourism Industry Awards as the states best Tour Company for 2014. After many years of being a finalist in this category the incredible work undertaken by the team at GBA to provide our customers with a tourism experience of exceptional quality has been recognised by the comprehensive judging panel of industry experts.

The criterion for the judging panel to make their decision is extensive. Not only do they look at the delivery of the product but also safety & risk management, community service, sustainability and contribution to the vibrancy of Victoria's Tourism Industry.

We are extremely proud of this achievement and for the fact that ballooning over Melbourne and the Yarra Valley is now part of the marketing imagery of Tourism Victoria that promotes international and interstate visitors to our regions. 

For locals, the sight of balloons over Melbourne is now part of our great city skyline and demonstrates the wonderful lifestyle we all enjoy.

We look forward to sharing our passion for ballooning with all people wishing to experience the amazing thrill of 'lighter than air' flight. We shall continue to work hard in the community and in this state to enrich the vibrancy of life for all who live here or visit.

Lastly I would like to express my incredible gratitude to my staff and all of our stakeholders for making Global Ballooning what it is today.
