The SkyWhale – Patricia Piccinini
Patricia Piccinini takes her art to the skies, constructing a hot air balloon in the shape of a whale, in honour of Canberra’s (Australia’s Capital City) centenary.

The spectacular surrealistic landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses hewn into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards – through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features – and then float up over rippled ravines for breathtaking views over the region.
