The Balloon Association of Victoria (BAV) is Australia's premier hot air balloon club for anyone and everyone with a love for balloons.

If you are brand new to ballooning, an old pro or somewhere in between, BAV provides a great opportunity to meet pilots and crew. Meetings are held in Melbourne on the second Thursday of every month and, weather permitting, are followed by a weekend of flying at the club's base in Benalla.   

As private balloonists, BAV does not offer paid flights. If you would like a commercial flight, please click here.
