I’ve been a RedBallooner since 2009. I starting out manning our retail outlets in Myer (yes that was me tempting you with awesome experiences in Myer Sydney over Fathers Day 2009- “you, hey you! Yes looking at ties and cufflinks- over here!” and drawing you closer in Chatswood while playing Balloon Volley Ball in the Food Court.) but now I’m on the phone coming to you direct in the Customer Experience team. Over my 2 years at RedBalloon I’ve had some amazing experiences which I never thought I’d ever do, such as throwing myself out of a plane, sailing an America’s Cup Yacht, patting a Cheetah and doing a Masterchef cooking challenge plus more. Challenging? Yes. Amazing? Yes. Was I slightly freaked out when I stepped out of the plane? You bet! But if I figure if I can do it- so can you! Call us and maybe you’ll discover something new about yourself or the person you’re buying a gift for- if experience is anything to go by, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Let it be said. My Husband is a lucky man. Last year for his birthday we went Husky Dog Sledding in the Hunter Valley (as he’s a huuuuge dog lover) and of course he wasn’t going without me! We turned up bright and early to the property in Belford to a rousing chorus of excited [...]
If there’s one thing you need to know about the Customer Experience Team here at RedBalloon is that we’re all addicts. Sugar Addicts that is! So what better way is there to celebrate the glory of sugar than doing the Cupcake Making Workshop followed by a Modern High Tea at Sparkle Cupcakery in Surry Hills? [...]
Being a tragic National Geographic Nerd when I was a kid, and going through phases of being a zoologist as well as a marine biologist- I’ve always wanted to have a hands on experience with animals. The Pet a Cheetah experience was my chance to fulfill the inner geek and get up close and personal [...]
