Excellent and friendly staff and amazing experience up in the sky. Although we did not have enough wind on the day so we did not get to go far but it was still breathtakingly beautiful being high in the sky.

Pre dawn is a magical time to be floating above treetops, listening to distant magpie calls and watching kangaroos. The ride was wonderful, the crew were all good-humoured skilled professionals, and the Peterson's breakfast at the end is a must !
