  • Description

    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.

    • Free pick up from accommodation in the CBD
    • Transfer vehicle from the landing site
    • Optional full gourmet breakfast for an extra cost payable on the day

    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 Sofitel Hotel is 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).
