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.
Equally thrilling and relaxing, a hot air ballooning adventure is a pure and unforgettable experience – especially over Victoria’s beautiful Yarra Valley. Yarra Glen has so much more to offer than wine tours, and what better reason for an early morning than a sunrise hot air balloon and gourmet champagne breakfast?
You'll take your tranquil hot air balloon flight over the Yarra River with breathtaking views of the mountains and scenery below. 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 to fly and the perfect way to explore the iconic Victorian region. This is easily one of the most spectacular places to hot air balloon in Australia.
Just one hour drive from Melbourne CBD, 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 sunrise hot air balloon for flight. Thirty minutes later you'll be drifting gracefully over the Australian countryside. The hot air balloon 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. You’ll be treated to a gourmet champagne breakfast at the charming Yarra Valley Lodge following your early morning Yarra Valley balloon flight.
As this is a sunrise hot air balloon flight, the exact time of your experience will vary based on the time of year, and exact details will be sent to you upon booking. So take the plunge and book in to see the most breathtaking views in Victoria.
Thank you so much for the beautiful experience.
The whole experience was fantastic. The guys were great to deal with and made you feel very welcome and safe. Would definitely recommend to everyone to have a go at Balloon Flights and get Online with Adrenaline. Cheers Bruce & Wendy
We loved our balloon flight, it was a treat to celebrate our special occasion. All the staff were fabulous and a thoroughly enjoyable morning.
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.
