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.

Hot Air Balloon flights take place at sunrise. The exact time of your Hot Air Balloon flight experience will vary based upon the time of year and will be sent to you upon booking.

Andy and the team were so knowledgeable and professional, beautiful well organised morning, and great breakfast with some good conversation.

Great experience. Would recommend it, being so peaceful and silent drifting across the skyline in Melbourne. Andrew our pilot was fantastic and my mum had been waiting 60 years for the chance to go ballooning and she totally loved it.

With the well qualified pilots and ground crew involved in the Hot Air Ballooning there was never a moment that I felt nervous or anxious. The adventure was carried out in such a way that I knew what was happening and when it was happening, it was well organised and made the adventure exciting and well worth the very early morning, even packing up the balloon was fun.

The crew and pilot were absolutely fantastic. We flew with the two Petes and were amazed by their passion and work ethic! We felt safe and relaxed the whole time. From beginning at the Sofitel to ending with the buffet breakfast the staff were accommodating and helpful. A beautiful experience I would recommend to all.
