Balloon Ride · Hidden Gem · Tour
We operate hot air balloon flights over Daylesford, where our senior pilot Simon has been flying for 10 years. He knows the local area intimately, and will entertain you with the history of the region while you enjoy the magnificent scenery.

A hot air balloon flight over the Daylesford Spa Country is a must when exploring Victoria's famous spa region. Take in the vibrant scenery; a landscape of rolling hills, rich red volcanic soils, beautiful blue waterways and green forests. This is hot air ballooning at its purest, most luxurious, and as close to nature as you can get.

After your flight enjoy a delicious 5-star champagne breakfast. In a region that wins numerous awards for its cuisine, this is the perfect end to an idyllic adventure.

  • Unbelievable !...... up at the crack of dawn, beautiful morning and after the test balloon was launched in Vincent st out the front of Frangos', all was safe and we headed off to Jubilee Lake to start our adventure hoping to fly over our house in Hepburn. After several campers scrambled out of bed to watch the four balloons take off, ( my wife Angela and myself in one balloon and our children Rory & Beth were in another ) we rose above the lake and headed towards Lake Daylesford with the sun rising over the hills out at Musk and the cows still sound asleep in the paddocks. Everything was so peaceful and quiet, even the foxes chasing the rabbits looked graceful from above. Gliding down over West st and the Hepburn Golf Course our pilot Simon said we were travelling at 12 km an hour. Still peaceful with the Hepburn Primary School in sight, and a few locals waving from the ground in their front yards. We knew them but obviously they didn't know who was in the balloon. Then as i asked, Simon took us straight over our house in Vanina st , you felt as if you could reach out and pick an apple off the tree in the back yard. Next was straight over the hallowed turf of the Hepburn Football Ground, then over the valley of Break Neck Gorge and down towards Shephards Flat. After crossing over the Lavender farm and Cricket Willow it was time to land in Franklin Ford in what was an unforgettable experience, and a real highlight to fly over the town we all grew up in. thanks Simon for a wonderful experience 10 out of 10. Couldn't recommend this experience any higher. Jason ,Angela, Rory & Beth Olver
