King Valley Balloon Flight
King Valley Balloon Flight – Meeting at Brown Brothers
The picturesque King Valley offers fantastic ballooning and Goldrush Ballooning are delighted to partner with Brown Brothers Milawa Vineyard and Snow Road Produce to create the perfect gourmet ballooning experience.
A Beautiful Balloon Flight in the King Valley – Gourmet Ballooning at its best !
Take in the beautiful King Valley and surrounds in your balloon at dawn. From the vineyards and patchwork of fields, the views expand to the Ovens River, spectacular Mt Buffalo, Mt Stirling and the High Country beyond. Get a real sense of this fertile valley from aloft and the enormous potential of the region to produce European wine varietals and gourmet produce.
We meet at Brown Brother Historic Barn before first light to allow us to fly in the perfect conditions around sunrise. Our expert crew will provide you with informative details throughout, and invite you to be involved in the inflation and deflation process if you wish.
After a short drive to the launch field, usually Brown Brother's Milawa Airfield, it takes about thirty minutes to inflate your balloon, and once ready you'll be invited to climb aboard. You'll receive a full passenger safety briefing before take-off and the experience is safe, friendly and professional. The ground crew follows and meets the balloon at its landing. After a quick pack-up, your crew will drive you back to Brown Brothers. The complete activity lasts between 3 and 4 hours and is suitable for ages 7 to 97.
We celebrate your flight with a delicious Prosecco breakfast at Brown Brothers. Breakfast includes a glass of crisp Brown Brothers Prosecco, waffles with bacon, avocado and fried eggs. Also a fresh fruit plate and local bakery items. Selection of King Valley's local Salus sourdough and fruit loaf with accompaniments and your choice of tea, coffee or juice.
