On arriving at the meeting point early we were greeted by the cheery pilot Gary who directed us to a good parking spot. We then relaxed in the warmth of the hotel foyer while waiting for the other passengers to arrive. When everyone arrived (on time), we were loaded into the back of the cozy 4 wheel drive and driven out to a nearby oval. Once there, the team unloaded the basket and proceeded to inflate the balloon. The pilot ran us through what to expect and safety instructions, while the morning light gradually revealed many kangaroos looking on with curiosity.
The balloon was inflated surprisingly fast with the aid of two big fans and heat supplied from the basket. We climbed in, shown the emergency brace position and took off.
It was so sturdy and graceful, I didn't realise we had left the ground! The whole flight was so peaceful, stable and relaxing. One lady who was a self-proclaimed "nervous flyer" was very surprised at how calming the flight was. We went up to 650m, and then low to chase kangaroos and admire horses. The landing was well executed with only a light tap as touched down.
After packing up the balloon we returned to the hotel for a delicious hot breakfast. All sitting at one table it great speaking to the other passengers, finding out where they'd come from and what they were celebrating.
A great way to wrap up such an uplifting morning. Many thanks to our cheeky pilot G Day and the team for a brilliant experience.

The experience was quite relaxing and my partner and I found it very romantic. The pilot knew his facts of the area and was willing to have conversations with the passengers.
