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.

I would recommend Adrenalin to everybody. I have already told workmates, family and friends that they must do at least one thing with you guys just to experience the professional way to get an adrenalin adventure. I look forward to going to see my husband drive a V8 around calder raceway at the end of july which was booked with you guys.

Thank you to Adrenalin & Picture this Ballooning for supplying my Hot Air Balloon ride last Sunday 29th January. We took off from Bundoora & flew over to Kew landing a perfect "10". This was a christmas gift & would say to everyone put this on your "Bucket LIst"The breakfast was delicious back at the Sofitel afterwards.
