Hot air ballooning in the Yarra Valley, highly recommended
, Jan 2020
A perfect experience. Great weather helped certainly, as it must for the kind of experience ballooning is but the organisation, staff, equipment and pilot were first class. Our pilot Ronald was friendly and personable and clearly highly skilled, who took the time when asked to explain some of the airborne operation, playing with winds and altitudes and for that matter, answered all questions patiently and knowledgeably. Finished off with a decent breakfast at Balgownie. A wonderful and memorable experience.

Best way to see the Great Barrier Reef by Far!! Absolutely loved our first helicopter ride. Worth every single penny! We actually wish we had taken the helicopter ride both ways as the ride back was ROUGH!! Only had about an hour to snorkel before it was time to head back, but that was enough for us. Perfect half day tour on the Great Barrier Reef!
The whole tour/trip was very organized and well done. The boat was a good size and very comfortable and the crew were very accommodating. The food was good (not fantastic ) with plenty of choice. The reefs are spectacular - like swimming in a giant aquarium. The helicopter back was the cherry on top - saw more beautiful reefs from the air, and made for a shorter day

This was an absolutely fantastic experience.

He was very informative and we had an amazing 25 minutes in the air. we flew all around Uluru and really saw it in all it's glory. The colours from above were fantastic. I would highly recommend this. It was bought for myself and my husband as a birthday gift and we cannot thank our family enough.

Amazing experience, it was windy but that didn’t worry the pilot landing in water and certainly didn’t ruin the boat ride through the falls. It makes things so much better when you can experience them from above in a plane but then at sea level to. Breakfast was delicious and the fish and sharks were very cool at their base.
