Apr 2021
IT was such an experience to fly above the city. And then the pieceful moments in the balloon. as you could just hear the people in the baloon.
We flew even close to the buildings.

Hot Air Balloon Flight over Melbourne CBD
We had a fabulous experience with Liberty Balloon Flights. The team that took us were amazing. They were friendly and informative. They picked us up in the city on time and transported us back at the end of our adventure. We took off near Flemington race course and landed just south of Boxhill. We had a good hour in the air. We booked as a group of six and Liberty made sure that we were together so we could truely share our experience. We felt 100% safe. I would definitely go with Liberty again.

Best experience, amazing company and great flight!
Apr 2021
We went on a sunrise balloon flight over Melbourne last week with Liberty Balloon Flights. We have been previously booked on 1 month prior but due to rain our flight was cancelled, on the waiting list to be added to an available flight we got a last minute call on the night before our flight that there was space available. Man were we grateful to be called up for that flight!!! Absolutely perfect weather and wind direction to fly STRAIGHT THROUGH the city, in between the building alongs flinders street. Flying low over the beach at ?Port Melbourne. Our pilot Nick with almost 30 year experience was able to get our ballon very low in crowded areas making for amazing views. flying down between trees in Fitzroy gardens and narrowly escaping the tree tops as we lifted back up. The ensures all passenger experienced not only a calm and beautiful flight but an exciting one, all the while Nick confident and competent enough to ensure there was no actual chance of hitting the trees. One of the best experiences I have ever had, truly something I believe everyone should try!! Our pilot so skilled he even scored 6 points as we passed through some goal posts on our landing in a football field. Nick and his son D'Artagnan made the whole experience (from set-up to pack up) super fun! Thanks again!!

Wonderful way to see Melbourne
Apr 2021
This was a wonderful way to celebrate my 50th birthday and to deepen my ongoing love affair with Melbourne. What a charming way to view the city. The balloon is so comfortable, stable and smoothly moving that the experience is quite surreal at first - hard to believe you are actually flying and not watching a virtual reality film. The pilot Nick and wing-man Stoney were good company and Nick showed considerable skill in landing our balloon under some changeable wind conditions - we were glad of his extensive experience in the business. I would highly recommend this company and the adventure of ballooning.

Great experience
Apr 2021 • Family
The best part of the adventure was preparing and setting up the balloon to take off into the sky for the first time. Working together as a team, laughing and jocking around, seeing Melbourne City in all it's glory, really it was an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend it to anyone who is in any doubt, just do it and see it for yourselves, you won't regret it, plus it's very safe and affordable! The team is very friendly and competent, together with our pilot, Nick, who is a super experienced with 27+ years, made the trip super easy and pleasurable!
