There’s no better way to view the snaking form of the Murray and the patchwork of vineyards and orchards than from high above. In Mildura you can do it in style in the basket of a hot air balloon, with exhilarating dawn flights followed by a champagne breakfast. Scenic plane flights are also available out to Mungo National Park.
Need more adrenalin? Buckle up and experience the thrill of gliding from Corowa or Tocumwal aerodromes, where perfect thermals create ideal conditions for unpowered flights. Former international commercial pilots flock here annually, and scenic glider flights and lessons are available. Albury Airport offers fixed-wing and helicopter flying lessons too.
