This was fantastic. Well worth doing to see an aerial perspective of the Australian bush. Fab.

Amazing tour. Really great team, very efficient pick-up by Alex and the balloon trip itself was incredible, with Shane the pilot giving interesting commentary and pointing out loads of kangaroos and other wildlife. Helping to pack the balloon away afterwards was also great fun. Can't recommend it enough.

It was a great experience, definitely recommend doing it! They pick you up early in the morning (too early?) and take you to the site of the hot air balloon. It's on a farm, so beware of manure. We got to watch them blow up the balloon too. I'm very much afraid of heights, but didn't even notice we were up so high. The only thing I was afraid of was dropping my phone while taking as many photos as I could. There isn't much room to move around in the balloon as they tend to pack it with as many people as possible. We got to see several wild kangaroos. Beware that the flames are HOT and sometimes the pilot has to keep the burner on for a while, so I recommend bringing something to cover your neck or head from the heat of the flames. The 30 minutes goes by fast. Once we were back on the ground, they had us help deflate and pack up the balloon, which was fun. Just be careful where you step, since, as I said before, it's on a farm. With that said, wear appropriate shoes too.
