Very professional and friendly crew ensured we had a great flight.
We were bussed from the Geelong Waterfront at 0430 to our launch-site nearby Inverleigh before the basket was unloaded from trailer, balloon attached, inflated and after a comprehensive safety briefing, boarded by 15 excited passengers and our very competent pilot. Everyone was able to assist in the preparation for lift-off where the inflation was aided by 2 high powered fans then the gas burners heated air in the billowing canopy.
Whilst this was my first balloon ride I did have some ancient [1970] ballooning ground-crew experience. When posted to RAAF Base Peace in WA I found that one of the Medevac wards was empty but for a huge deflated hot-air balloon. When I expressed some interest I was introduced to 2 Macchii pilot instructors from No 2 Flying Training School, given some basic instruction and recruited as the Medic in the 'chaser vehicle' for the first attempt to balloon across Australia, west coast to east coast.
Some months of waiting passed before eventually the perfect weather permitted take-off and the balloon traveled promptly from Pearce just north of Perth, across the Nullabor, through South Australia and into Victoria. Being directed totally by prevailing westerly winds, the pilots could control only altitude and not direction and unfortunately Victoria provided strong winds from the north, driving the balloon towards the coast near Nelson in south west Victoria. As the predicted balloon course appeared to now involve Bass Strait and perhaps Tasmania and as no water based support was available the record attempt was aborted and the balloon was forced to land in the green pastures of the Western District. I wasn't too disappointed however as I was in Tasmania already - on leave - as I had just been posted to Malaysia and missed the entire event!!! But today it was the real McCoy!
With all 4 burners flaring the basket gently lifted off by 0600 and we were airborne. It was perfect weather - cool but mild and not a breathe of wind - perhaps too perfect as our ascent was slow, smooth and directly upwards. With literally no directional winds we spent over an hour and a half drifting around the area at 5500 ft and watched a magnificent sunrise over Port Phillip Bay, saw cattle tracking towards feeding points, saw kangaroos attempting to hide in light scrub and watched the valley's morning mists dissipate. The eerie silence of the flight was only broken by the intermittent burner blasts as we gained or retained altitude. We passed by the expanding suburb of Bannockburn, drifted over market gardens, graziers and poultry producers and avoided many unsafe landing sites before selecting an appropriate paddock in which to land, belonging to a farmer whose family had run the property since the 1850's. Although descending at 700 ft per minute, the landing was gentle as our basket brushed tree tops before paddock touchdown and whilst we were all holding in the "brace position', the bump as the basket settled on the paddock was barely perceptible.
Soon the groundcrew arrived and we all celebrated the journey with a champers toast before returning to Geelong and breakfasting at restaurant "42" in Rippleside Park. What a magic way to start the day [and the rest of our lives]!!! Life is so good! Thanks kids - a much appreciated gift that leaves hankies and socks to another era!

What an experience! I was a little nervous but excited at the same time. The crew were so amazing, putting everyone at ease as they explained every detail of what we were about to experience. As we went up all my apprehension disappeared and we floated on the breeze in the silence of early morning. We had the best time, with clear skies and the most amazing sunrise. Thank you to all, we will be back to do it again.

Bought this experience for my 16 yr old granddaughters birthday. We both loved our balloon ride. Watching the sunrise on a beautiful still morning. The crew were amazing, and did everything to make a flight memorable. It was definitely memorable. We came away with some fantastic videos and photos. A glass of champagne when we landed. Then off to the Novotel hotel for a yummy buffet breakfast. Thanks Steve for an awesome hot air balloon ride.

First time in a Hot Air Balloon. Liberty Balloons went out of its way to ensure we had a beautiful experience. They were extremely accommodating with the booking and communication was excellent in all aspects. We took off Inverleigh and landed in Batesford. Flight time was just on an hour. It was really peaceful and the views were amazing. We then enjoyed some champagne on the field. After the balloon was packed up we were driven to our breakfast at The Wharf Shed in Geelong.
Thankyou so much to Dean our Pilot and the support crew Mel. They are passionate about ballooning we absolutely loved the experience. Highly recommend Ballooning.

Floating through the fog was a very eerie feeling in a good way. And standing in the basket feeling still, watching the land underneath slip by was so surreal. I loved the experience. Thanks Dean, Melissa and Marty!!

This was my 3rd ballooning experience so I knew what to expect and was not disappointed by Liberty Balloon Flights.
Our crew were professional, fun and fabulous and when the fog started to come in Dean our pilot navigated us through it perfectly.
We had a wonderful flight over Geelong's pastoral region where the views were beautiful and very interesting.

What a great flight on Saturday with Liberty Balloon Flights Geelong. A very crisp start at dawn but a majestic clear sky flight across Geelong and though marshland to Barwon Heads. Fantastic piloting, great scenery to photograph and smooth 27kph ride. A dream come true for me and I will be back again in future. A superb breakfast in deal overlooking Geelong bay. Great company well worth supporting.
