Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Just a year after his acclaimed series, Stephen Tompkinson’s African Balloon
Adventure, the star of Wild at Heart finds himself in the clouds again. This
time however, there’s a competitive edge: Stephen has entered Australia’s
biggest ballooning competition – the Canowindra Balloon Challenge.
After over a month’s preparation, Stephen and his pilot, Robin, travel through Australia’s South East corner of South Australia, Victoria and finally New South Wales. Taking to the air for some unforgettable training flights, they crash land at 40mph in the outback’s Flinders Ranges; fly through the goalposts at the MCG and attempt a record-breaking flight to 10,000ft.
Meanwhile, on the ground, they rough it on a remote cattle station; dance the Zorba with Melbourne’s 100,000 Greek’s and find themselves at the centre of a shark attack on a Sydney beach. As their journey draws to a close and competition day arrives, Stephen and Robin are more than ready to take on the Aussies – but will favourable winds blow them first over the finishing line?
