Equally thrilling and relaxing, a hot-air ballooning adventure is a romantic and unforgettable experience – especially over the beautiful city of Melbourne. Depending on the wind direction you may make a tranquil hot-air balloon flight over the CBD and the Yarra River, or over the inner suburbs, parks and gardens. The still morning air makes flying conditions perfect during what is known in the hot-air ballooning industry as the "weather window", a gloriously peaceful time over an often hectic city.

  • Free pick up from accommodation in the CBD
  • Champagne breakfast at The Sofitel Hotel
  • Transfer vehicle from the landing site

The hot-air ballooning journey begins with a briefing by the pilot before you head to the launch site and, if you like, help prepare the hot-air balloon for flight. Thirty minutes later you'll be drifting gracefully over the countryside. The hot-air ballooning flight itself will last around one hour.

The icing on the cake is a sumptuous Champagne breakfast at the Sofitel Hotel - the perfect way to toast your hot-air ballooning adventure. The Sofitel Hotel is also the meeting point for the adventure, although pick-ups are available at all major hotels/motels within the CBD.

My wife and I really enjoyed the experience. Floating over Melbourne CBD was a marvelleous, seeing the major sites from the air was very inspirational and educational. The pilot and ground crew were exceptional, very knowledgeable and informative. We would recommend the experience to all!
It was a great experience and Fun ride.
