Melbourne adventures

In this breathtaking aerial view of Melbourne, the city awakens under a gentle dawn sky. Hot air balloons float gracefully above the skyline, their colorful patterns adding a whimsical touch to the serene morning atmosphere. The city’s impressive array of skyscrapers stands tall, their glass facades reflecting the soft, early light. Below, the city’s layout unfolds with a mix of modern high-rises and charming residential neighborhoods. The greenery of parks and tree-lined streets provides a soothing contrast to the urban landscape. The tranquil waters of the lake in the foreground mirror the sky and the city, creating a harmonious blend of nature and architecture.
Arguably Melbourne’s finest viewpoint as viewed from Albert Park Lake. In the foreground, Lakeside Drive with the tall palm trees curves alongside the serene lake, which reflects the city’s skyscrapers and the morning sky. The CBD rises in the background, with a few hot air balloons adding a whimsical touch to the scene.  Green lawns and trees surround the lake, adding a touch of nature to the urban setting. This picturesque view beautifully combines Melbourne’s natural beauty with its modern architectural landscape.
FUN FACT: Melbourne is the only major city in the world where you can take a commercial hot air balloon flight over the CBD! 🎈 

Join us on a flight - embrace the magic of Melbourne from above and see why we're the envy of the world!

It is with a heavy heart that we post regarding today’s tragic story whilst ballooning over Melbourne.

What started as a beautiful morning for flying became a tragic and traumatic event after a passenger from one of the other companies morning flight took it upon himself to exit the basket over Preston. We are all deeply shocked and saddened by the circumstances surrounding this tragic incident, and our heart goes out to his family, friends, and the wider community. 

We conduct our flights with the utmost joy and passion for what we do - it is a lifestyle surrounded by celebration and happiness -  so to have such a situation occur is beyond comprehension. Being up in the sky while this emergency situation unfolded was highly stressful yet it was amazing to see how well all the pilots, ground crew and Air Traffic Control calmly focused on managing this horrific situation while we were all still flying. It really demonstrated the professional environment we work in.

Unfortunately, mental health is a big part of our lives these days , so take this moment to check in on your family and friends. We will now all be checking in on each other as we process the sadness we carry in our hearts today.
