Crisp winter days are upon us, which means only one thing to the Global Ballooning Australia team - beautiful, still days over Mansfield and perfect flying conditions. Which is why the Global team have now launched Victoria’s first winter flights, with the magnificent backdrop of the snow-capped peaks of Mt Buller and Mt Stirling.
Protected by surrounding hills, Mansfield is a natural pastoral basin and the topography of the area lends itself to bluebird, cool wintery conditions, even when cloud covers the heights of Victoria’s High Country.
Afternoon flights - in the golden hours of the day - provide a new option for those adventure tourists who don’t want to roll out of bed before sunrise, and an opportunity to do something unique off-mountain while still experiencing the beauty of Mt Buller.
Pilot Georgia Croft says “Mansfield has a bustling winter snow-town vibe, so it makes sense to enjoy the mountains from a new vantage point, and make your visit extra memorable - you won't believe how breathtaking the views are from a thousand feet up”!
Afternoon flights can be booked from May to September.
