Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Yarra Valley Balloon Flight and Winery Tour

Yarra Valley Balloon Flight

Escape to the gorgeous Yarra Valley for a full day of excellent wine, gourmet cuisine and unspoiled natural beauty. The adventure begins with early morning pickup at your Melbourne CBD hotel for the 1-hour drive to Yarra Valley. Alternatively, you can make your own way to Balgownie Estate if you’re already staying in the area.

At daybreak, climb aboard a hot air balloon for a thrilling ride over the valley’s sprawling vineyards, orchards and elegant estates, with views of the sloping mountains beyond. Enjoy an unforgettable sight as the sun rises and bathes the landscape in an array of colorful hues.

After landing back on solid ground, energize for the day with a gourmet Champagne breakfast featuring hot and cold favorites accompanied by coffee, tea, juice and a glass of Chandon sparkling wine. Continue on with your small group on a tour of four of the Yarra Valley’s premium wineries. Enjoy cellar door tastings at Punt Road and Yering Farm within your day, where you can learn about the winemaking process as you sip.

When it’s time for lunch, settle in at Balgownie Estate for a gourmet meal accompanied by a glass of estate wine. In the afternoon, get bubbly with a private walking tour of the famous Domaine Chandon winery — the Australian outpost of France’s famous Moet & Chandon Champagne purveyors. Toast your Yarra Valley vacation with a glass of sparkling wine amid the beautiful surroundings.

The tour concludes at Domaine Chandon in the afternoon, where you can continue exploring the Yarra Valley on your own or enjoy complimentary return transport to four convenient central Melbourne locations.

1. The Hot Air Ballooning experience is a must-do - Even for those with fear of heights! The Global Ballooning team does a great job of making you comfortable and making the entire flight experience hassle free and enjoyable. The breakfast at Balgownie that follows is also great!

2. The winery tour covers 4 wineries through the day and is a great tour for amateurs in this drink. We had John as a tour guide and he was ver knowledgeable, helpful, witty and engaging.
Would definitely recommend both the tours.

Although we weren't able to do the winery tour and balloon flight on the same day due to weather conditions both events were spectacular and we enjoyed them immensely. The views on the balloon flight were amazing and the crew exceptional. The hosts on the winery tour were knowledgeable and accommodating.

This day was amazing. The crew from Global Balloon make you feel relax and secure because they are very funny so you get in that mood. The balloon ride is absolutely breathtaking, one of the most beautiful scenarios I had seen. It was a great that me and my boyfriend got to see and enjoy the amazing sunrise. The wineries and vineyards we visited were really good and very different from one another. The breakfast and lunch were amazing, great quality and presentation. It was a perfect day and was the highlight of our entire trip.

Wow….loved the experience. We were up for a good long time and I was not even slightly nervous. Breathtaking and another check off my bucket list.

We had a fantastic time on our balloon flight. Grega was an exceptional pilot and made us feel totally at ease flying high and skimming over tree tops. The silence (when the balloon is not having a burst of hot air) is awesome. We highly recommend this to everyone. The only disappointment was we missed the sunrise but this was due to people not being on time. Make sure you are ready for pickup so everyone can enjoy the splendour of the sun rising.
