What You Can Expect

Melbourne Balloon Flight at Sunrise

Sunrise Balloon Flight over Melbourne

You will then be transported to the launch site for your Melbourne balloon flight where you may help with the launch, or stand back and take pictures. In the early morning light your balloon will drift over Melbourne's parks, gardens and the Yarra River as the city comes to life. As your balloon floats above Melbourne you'll look down on some of the city's iconic venues including the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Park and Albert Park racetrack. Your balloon flight over Melbourne will last for approximately one hour. After the final landing and packing the hot air balloon away, head back to the centrally located Pullman on the Park where you can then stay for breakfast or take a quick 10-minute walk back to the city center.

Where you fly on Melbourne balloon flights:
Balloon flights in Melbourne are weather dependent and your route will be determined by the winds. Your balloon may fly over Melbourne's CBD, which is laid out in a large rectangular grid like pattern on the northern banks of the Yarra River. Alternatively, your Melbourne balloon flight may head over the inner suburbs, parks and gardens to discover why Victoria is labeled the Garden State.

this was definitely one of the highlights, if not THE highlight of my trip to Melbourne. I was allowed to help with the balloon! We were in the air for 90 minutes, from a breathtaking sunrise to the start of the day, circling the core city of Melbourne a few times. To experience the quietness, the majestic movement of the balloon ride and the heat of the flames was a once in a lifetime experience only that I want to do it again and again and again!. The landing was soft and smooth and I never felt safer! thank you for this amazing tour experience!

What an amazing experience this balloon flight was. The crew was very knowledgeable and made us all comfortable enough to jump in and assist with the set up and tear down process. This was great fun and I met some fantastic people as well. Definitely a must do when visiting Melbourne.

A wonderful trip that created memories to last a lifetime. The crew was professional and friendly. We really enjoyed every moment. The experience was highlighted by our ability to pitch in and help because it allowed us to better understand the engineering behind ballooning and feel like a part of the process. Highly recommended! Kudos to Tim, our pilot! He really loves what he does and it is contagious!!!
