Everyone should experience Hot Air Ballooning at least once. The tranquil exhilaration of floating with the wind at sunrise over beautiful scenery is absolutely unforgettable. Book now!
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.
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.
This is a Hot Air Balloon Flight for 1 (there will be others in the balloon basket with you).

The flight lived up to all our expectations, making it a memorable Day Thankyou
Great Experience ,and lots of fun. Highly recommended, a surprise gift from my daughter. Very proffesional
Hot air ballooning deffiently exceted all expectations! 10/10 experience
We were blessed with wonderful weather on the morning we flew. The team were informative and helpful and I never at any point felt unsafe. It was wonderful seeing Melbourne from above and I loved it when we came in quite low above the houses and people shouted and waved to us and the dogs barked as we flew over head. Fantastic experience - well recommended - Oh and the breakfast was pretty fantastic too !!!
I had a fabulous time and felt that I was in good hands. Our pilot Andy and his team were very professional and feeling safe made the experience all the better!
The "PictuerThis" balloon mob were awesome and made the day mind blowing. The breakfast afterwards was really well done. Couldn't be happier with the experience.
Great trip, well organized... Just wish they wouldn't have tried to sell the photos at the end of the flight over breakfast, cheapened the whole event
Andy and Peter are the best. Exceptional experience.
The "Picture this" crew was BRILLIANT!!
It was a spectacular flight & we all felt very safe
