  • Description
    • Go flying over Melbourne CBD in a hot air balloon
    • Get your adrenaline pumping and soak up the views
    • Free pick up from accommodation in the Melbourne CBD
    • Optional full gourmet breakfast for an extra cost payable on the day

    Feel the pure thrill of an extraordinary hot air ballooning experience over the beautiful city of Melbourne. Depending on the wind direction you may go soaring in your hot-air balloon flight over the CBD and the Yarra River, or over the inner suburbs, parks and gardens. The still morning air at sunrise 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 soaring over the landscape way below in a hot-air ballooning flight that will last around one hour. 

    Hot Air Balloon flights take place at sunrise in the crisp morning air so rise and shine early for an unbeatable flying experience. It's worth it.

    The company Picture This Ballooning were brilliant, I cannot speak highly enough of Peter and Peter. The communications and information prior to the day were amazing: concise and correct and delivered in a timely fashion. The experience itself was incredible and I will be doing it again myself as well as recommending it to all my family and friends. Thank you for a memorable day and fabulous life experience.
