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.

Bucket list experience achieved!! I was picked up before sunrise alone in front of my hotel. I'm 74 years young and felt very safe during the entire tour. Van driver wife of owner, sorry forgot her name and all of the crew were friendly, helpful and knew what they were doing. As a senior citizen and in a foreign country, I was concerned when told that I Would be dropped off at a location NEAR my hotel. Fortunately My drop off was few blocks away and easily managed with instructions from driver. Bottom line. Great hot air ballon ride and champagne breakfast afterward.
