“What a way to start the day!!!”

Goldrush Ballooning
Ranked #2 of 8 Tours in Mansfield
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Some of Australia's greatest landscapes are best seen from above, gently, without noise and with time to take it all in. North East Victoria's High Country is one such a landscape and travelling across it by balloon is magical. We complete your experience with a delicious Prosecco breakfast after the flight at Brown Brothers Milawa for King Valley Flights or Mansfield Coffee Merchant for Mansfield flights. Suitable for ages 7-97 flights are safe, friendly and professional - Goldrush Ballooning is certified by CASA and insured by Lloyds of London. Flights last around an hour, the whole experience takes 3-4 hours. The memories last a lifetime.

Birthday Gift Balloon ride from Brown Brothers, Milawa.
Perfect start to the day. Weather was spectacular, not a cloud in the sky, sunrise was awesome. Pilot Rob has great people skills and was very accommodating, he even indulged us with a few stories with our lovely breakfast at Brown Brothers.
I would encourage people to come and stay in the King Valley for a total experience. Valley View Caravan Park in Whitfield offers accommodation and is only 1/2hr drive from Brown Brothers. Country hospitality you can't beat it!!!! Amazing.

Easy process to book, even from overseas. All necessary information was communicated clearly ahead of time which helped my planning and was no problem to connect the night before for necessary flight day info.

Rob and his crew were professional on the ground and in the air, while also keeping it informal with everyone involved in the process of getting set up and putting the ballon away - which was a lot of fun. Rob has had lots of experience ballooning in this area, sharing information about all that we were seeing.

And the views (and sunrise) were spectacular! So calm and serene as you drift gently over the landscape. Great perspective on a beautiful corner of the earth!

This was our first ballooning experience. There is something very relaxing about it. Rob our pilot was very knowledgeable and a very good communicator. Make sure to wear warm clothes and enclosed shoes. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

My wife and I took a flight with Goldrush Ballooning in the King Valley region of northern Victoria recently. Our pilot, Paul, and his team were totally professional, very informative and clearly love what they do. The flight was amazing in perfect conditions and the landing smooth and comfortable. The flight was followed by a delicious breakfast at Brown Brothers winery which topped off an incredible morning. Highly recommend Global Ballooning and thanks to Paul and co for a great experience...

We had a Saturday morning over the Mansfield area. The experience was absolutely fabulous. Rob and the ground team were very efficient and professional, and were very informative in their conversation. This was a first class experience on so many levels. The flight itself was fabulous, but helping with the setup and wrap-up of the balloon was also a lot of fun. Concluding with the champagne breaky at the Coffee Merchant was a wonderful touch to finish
