Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

There's nothing quite like watching the hot air balloon fire up in the early morning chill. And it's so peaceful sailing over this scenic wine-growing region. I definitely recommend warming up afterwards with the gourmet a la carte breakfast and sparkling wine to toast your adventure!

What You Can Expect

Yarra Valley Balloon Flight at Sunrise

Yarra Valley Balloon Flight at Sunrise

Enjoy a spectacular start to the day with a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Yarra Valley, just an hour away from Melbourne. This favorite day trip destination is a gourmet paradise of lush rolling hills and vineyards and home to more than 35 wineries that produce renowned cold-climate varietals like chardonnay and pinot noir.

Make your way to the Yarra Valley’s Rochford Wines in the early morning, or enjoy pickup at your Melbourne CBD hotel (if sparkling wine breakfast upgrade is selected). Climb aboard a sturdy basket, which holds a maximum of 16 people. Experience the thrill as your hot air–powered balloon fires up in the crisp morning air and you begin to slowly rise over the countryside.

Float with the breeze over vineyards, country roads and orchards for an unbeatable view of the gorgeous landscape. On misty mornings, watch sunbeams play on layers of wispy clouds for an otherworldly experience. An expert guide will accompany you on the ride to ensure everyone’s safety and provide narration on the passing scenery.

After your 1-hour flight, upgrade to include a hearty sparkling wine breakfast at Rochford Wines’ elegant restaurant. Toast your flight with Domaine Chandon sparkling wine and choose from a gourmet a la carte menu featuring hot and cold breakfast favorites served with orange juice, tea and coffee.

Absolutely incredible! Bought the tickets as a surprise for my partner on her 21st and as first time balloon fliers we thoroughly enjoyed the experience! We optioned to go with the transfers for ease of travel and the champagne breakfast and we could not have asked for a nicer all round experience.
Note to future travelers particular baldies like myself bring a beanie, not for the cold but for the heat from the burner! And also a pair of sturdy shoes would help as well as packing and setting up the balloon can be tricky but is half the fun!. Otherwise enjoy an incredible experience with an all-round very professional company who my partner and I will definitely be using again in the future.
