On our hot air balloon flight over Melbourne city, you’ll get to admire a mix of all of the elements that make Melbourne such a unique place. The trip will take you high above the modern skyscrapers, gorgeous parks and stunning architecture of Australia’s second-largest city.

On this Melbourne hot air balloon ride, you’ll get a unique look at some of the country’s most impressive sports stadiums, including the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. You will also get to see the Yarra River from above, as it cuts through the middle of Melbourne and extends into the distance.

On the other hand, if you prefer the sights and sounds away from the city, you’ll love our Yarra Valley hot air balloon flight. The region is known for its wines, and you’ll be able to get a peek at the many vineyards and mountains that line the area.

On this tour, you’ll get a different look at the Yarra River - one that’s much more secluded and surrounded by natural beauty. If you’re so inclined, you can make plans to extend your day and visit some of Australia’s best wineries located in the area.

When you arrive at your launch site, you will be able to help your pilot with the inflation of your colourful balloon. This is a great time to learn more about the ins and outs of hot air ballooning and get to know your pilot better before take off.

Both flights take off an hour before sunrise, so you will be able to watch the sun come up over the city or wine country, depending on your tour selection. During the summer months, you can expect to meet around 4 a.m., while winter trips will commence around 6 a.m.

Once you’re in the air, you’ll float through the sky for 60 minutes as you soak up one-of-a-kind views. Enjoy the fresh air as it breezes past you and your fellow guests while you admire the gorgeous landscape below.

After your hot air ballooning Melbourne trip, you can opt to have a five-star champagne breakfast at a nearby restaurant. For the Melbourne city flight, you’ll visit Pullman on the Park, an upscale hotel in the city with delicious dining. For the Yarra Valley flight, you’ll enjoy a meal at Balgownie Estate, a vineyard and luxury spa in the heart of wine country.

You will also receive a commemorative flight certificate to take home at the end of your journey. If you’re interested, you can also take a complimentary souvenir pack, which includes a wine tasting voucher at Domaine Chandon winery and discounts on other attractions throughout Victoria.

No matter which tour you choose, make sure to bring along your camera to capture the unforgettable sights you’ll see. You’ll definitely want to share the birds-eye-view photos with friends and family on your return home. You will also have the option to purchase a professionally captured CD or DVD of your trip.

We know that your hot air balloon ride Melbourne will be a memory to cherish forever, so your pilot and crew will assure that you are completely comfortable throughout your experience. If you have any questions about the journey, you are welcome to chat with the crew prior to launch.

The hot air balloon ride cost depends on several factors, including which tour you choose and whether or not you’d like to include the champagne breakfast option. However, you’ll find that costs are reasonable given the unique nature of these tours and the stunning sights you will take in.
