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 pure and unforgettable experience – especially over the beautiful Yarra Valley. Depending on the wind direction you'll take your tranquil hot-air balloon flight over the Yarra River with breathtaking views of the mountains. The still morning air makes flying conditions perfect during what is known in the hot-air ballooning industry as the "weather window", a gloriously quiet time over the peaceful region.
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 cooked breakfast – the perfect way to toast your hot-air ballooning adventure.
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.
Flights operate every weekend, weather permitting. Weekday flights are available but subject to minimum numbers. The Yarra Valley is about a one hour drive from Melbourne with a gourmet breakfast at the charming Yarra Valley Lodge. Meeting time is half an hour before sunrise.
Brilliant day, well organised, thanks
Everything was amazing.
Would love to thank our pilot Jeff for an amazing hot air balloon experience. He was informative, easy going and happy to answer any questions. The ground crew were also fantastic guys who had a smile on their face the whole time, they all obviously love their job and made our morning so very pleasant! The Yarra Valley is spectacular and particularly so at this time of year as the colours are so pretty. Breakfast afterwards just completed the perfect morning and was absolutely delicious! If you do have the opportunity to go hot air ballooning - you should! Thanks again :)
Loved the ballooning. staff were great, really helpful fun and I felt safe and informed, would highly recommend Picture This Ballooning!
Loved it, great experience
The Balloon staff and Yarra Valley Lodge staff were fantastic as was the whole experience
It would had to have been one of the best experiences I have ever had. The hot air balloon ride itself was just amazing, but the service and attention to detail from the time I arrived to the time I left was exceptional. Can't wait to do it all over again, over the city perhaps.
Hot Air Ballooning is a surreal and amazing experience floating over the landscape with the clouds.
I had the most amazing experience, l would recommend this to everyone
