Stephen Tompkinson, from Wild at Heart fame, has completed his travels in the ITV series the African Balloon Adventure and now it's Australia's turn.
Stephen with his pilot Robin Batchelor have come to film the next TV series and Picture This Ballooning was there to help out, both with flight services and logistics.
There were two places that were on the list.
1. The junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers
2. Melbourne's Sporting Precinct (the MCG, Rod Laver Arena, Old Olympic Park, AAMI stadium)
This is not always as easy as it seems as hot air balloons are completely dependent on wind and accuracy requires a lot of expertise.
Our own Paul Gibbs assisted with "Daisy" (as they call their balloon) and with Pete flying beside them for a video/photography platform they flew directly over the MCG as planned.
So how does Australia stack up against Africa?
After flying over Melbourne Stephen said, "I was like a kid in a candy shop. It was a flight that I will remember for the rest of my days."
