  • Description

    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 RACV Healesville Country Club 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.
