What you can expect

Tick another item off your bucket list and create lifelong memories on this hot air ballooning adventure over Melbourne. As you soar through the sky, marvel at the breathtaking views of the city, Yarra River and surrounding areas. The stillness of the morning air at sunrise creates the perfect window for passengers to take to the sky and admire the tranquility of the city as Melbourne wakes up for the day.

The hot air ballooning journey commences with a detailed briefing by the pilot, and if you're up for it, you can even assist in preparing the hot air balloon for flight. Within just thirty minutes, you'll find yourself floating high above the city enjoying an hour-long hot air ballooning experience. From the air you'll be perfectly positioned to capture an unforgettable photo of the Melbourne City Skyline, St Kilda and even top sporting attractions such as MCG. If you haven't tried hot air ballooning, make it happen this year.
