Liberty Balloon FlightsExperience the Gentle Sport of Floating in the Wind
Welcome to the official website of Liberty Balloon Flights Pty Ltd. Our pilots have been flying balloons since 1993 and we have been operating balloon flights over Melbourne and the Yarra Valley since 2002 and Tasmania since 2019.
A Balloon Ride
Our website hopefully helps you to find the information you are after with regards to ballooning and it is also where you can easily make a booking, but please contact us for anything else you might need to know...we’d love to hear from you!

About the Experience
Yes, we start early! As early as 04:30 a.m. in the Summer (even earlier in Tasmania) and as late as 06:30 a.m. in Winter. We follow the Sun and tend to meet approximately 1½ hours before Sunrise at a convenient location which will be confirmed to you prior to the balloon flight. From here we will drive you, in our vehicles, to the launch site.
Hot air balloons float in the wind, so we have many different take-off locations, depending on the wind direction on the day. We like to call the experience “audience participation” which means, if you are game and able to, there are tasks for all who want to take part in this most ancient way to fly. Half an hour is what it takes to prepare these gentle giants. Once onboard we lift gently–so gently it constantly amazes passengers how PEACEFUL ballooning is– NO, you do not feel height-sick.
Ballooning is not an adrenaline sport, it is a sport where we contemplate, we admire, we see the sunrise cast shadows in the landscape, we hear the waking countryside, the city at dawn…. Ballooning is special. As an old English lady once said to us once, “balloons are one of the few things built by humankind that truly enhance nature.” We enjoy what we do, and we aim to hear that you loved the morning you spent with us.
What People Are Saying
It’s an amazing experience
Nick’s sense of humour is really good! He knows how to make us feel comfortable and the most important thing is he explained the situation very well to make sure that we understand what are the things we need to do to board and to prepare for landing. Feel very safe under his care and I’ve recommended him to a few of my friends 🙂

Hands down must do!
If you are still not sure if you should go for it, think no longer. You won’t regret it. The moment you lift up
from the ground to witness the first beams of the waking up sun is magical. It’s so quiet and peaceful up in the sky. Words cannot describe it. There are certain things you shouldn’t regret spending on…

Hot Air Balloon flights in Northern Tasmania
This unique experience is something you just have to do! As you soar above the landscape the birds-eye views are truly amazing! Watching the sun come up from the basket is a sight to behold, nature at it’s best with magnificent views over the surrounding landscape. Nick, chief pilot is a wonderfully friendly host, all information required is expertly and easily conveyed as you become part of the team in this experience. An age-old mode of flight that retains it’s spectacular uniqueness. A must for those who are looking for that special something to experience or gift to give. Sensational!

Most Amazing Experience
OUR PILOT NICK WAS SO EXPERIENCED AND PATIENT. I was afraid to do it because I fear heights and he kept me calm the entire time. It’s not bad at all! Definitely recommended. Also, Enzo was sooo nice and knowledgeable! They both made jokes and made us laugh. RECOMMENDED MOST DEFINITELY!!!!!!!!!!

Truly Amazing Experience
We were celebrating my husband’s 50th Birthday, and what a way to do it. We had the best day ever, the morning was glorious and even though it was an early start we had the best time. The sights over the Geelong area were amazing, the bay, the wineries and Kardinia Park. We had fun helping out with the set up of the balloon and the packing up once we landed. It was the most amazing experience.
Nick and his son Dah were very professional and friendly -they made you welcome from the moment you first check-in.
We can’t wait to go again.

Love Was In The Air
My celebrant husband and I were asked to perform a wedding in the balloon. Nick, the balloonist was excellent in all aspects; keeping everyone up to date with the weather beforehand, the flow of the morning (meeting up and travelling to the site), and in the air he was fantastic. Everyone had a great experience.

Got married in the sky and loved it!
This morning my partner and I became husband and wife up in the hot air balloon with Nick as our pilot. He was attentive at all times and the journey was super smooth. The team that Nick had on site were second to none and the communication between parties leading up to our special day was amazing. Will definitely be doing it again and highly recommend Liberty balloons!!
