Description

Fly Me To The Moon, established in 1996, is operated by Steve and Trish Griffin. Steve is Australia’s Most Awarded Balloon Pilot and Australia's only current world record holder.

Your Hot Air Balloon Brisbane flight experience is spectacular. We meet our passengers at Toowong Park, Sylvan Road, Toowong (infront of the West's Bulldogs Rugby Union Club) just before sunrise (time varies throughout the year; you will be advised of the meeting time when your flight is confirmed). After your pilot completes a final weather check you are transported to one of our suburban launch sites where you get to see the balloon prepared for flight.

We use a variety of launch sites located around the city to ensure the best possible flight. We aim to have the balloon drift over the river allowing unparralled views of the city and surrounding suburbs. It is common for the in-flight views to extend north beyond the Glasshouse Mountains, south beyond the Gold Coast and Border Ranges and east out to Moreton Bay and the islands.

After a flight lasting approximately one hour, we land the balloon and pack it away before heading to the Sofitel for breakfast where you can celebrate the morning with your pilot and new found friends in adventure.

After breakfast we transport you back to our meeting point at Toowong. We recommend that you should allow at least four hours for your ballooning experience.
