Hot Air Balloon Rides over Melbourne are a breathtaking way to see the town! Depending on the wind at dawn, your ballooning adventure may take you over the CBD, inner suburbs, parks and gardens, with Port Phillip Bay creating the perfect backdrop as you discover this gorgeous city from the air!

Your hot air ballooning flight over Melbourne starts when we either meet at your hotel or at the meeting location before first light. You will be advised of the exact time and place the evening before your flight.

Your pilot will give you a short briefing and you will be transported to the launch site, where you may help with the launch or stand back and take pictures.

Then away we go, drifting gently over the city of Melbourne in our beautiful balloon. Your flight will last for approximately one hour.

Afterwards, we make our final landing, pack the balloon away and invite you to join us for a traditional champagne breakfast (additional cost of $30pp) at the Hilton hotel.

This experience voucher is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic morning I am petrified of heights and was very sceptical of the flight, but after a couple of mins with the pilot and crew helping set up and being a part of it all my nerves disappeared, the flight was very professional and not a worry at all. Pilot was fantastic and i would refer this experience to anyone. Absolutely wonderful time!! 12 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The experience was even better than we had anticipated! Right from the briefing through to the explanations on the bus to the take off site we were genuinely excited about what was in store for us. To be able to assist in pre flight preparation was great and once we were up, it was just amazing. Beautiful scenery, extremely professional throughout and the weather was also kind to us. Strongly recommend to anyone who is contemplating this trip. A fantastic present from our children for a wedding gift. 8 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing flight Fantastic flight across Melbourne, predawn and sunrise, drifting across the inner north, the meandering Yarra river, then the inner east and south, and seeing the city and bay from a birds eye view. Bring a hat because the burner gets very warm. And bring a camera for amazing photos. 16 February 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by It was ok. Not as good as the one in the Yarra Valley tho. Experience was good. Pilot was obviously the one in charge of the 4 balloons which went up. Would have liked him to point out more items of interest tho. 19 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent but I would not fly over the city again. Personally I did not find looking down on roof tops of industrial buildings interesting and had hope that our balloon could have flown more over the city central area but I guess it is the luck of the draw with nature !!!! Also a bit of commentry from the pilot would have been good telling us how high we were, what direction we were going, landmarks etc,etc. 18 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 To tell people that if they are scared of heights that this is a great way to get over it my husband loved the flight and he doesnt like to even climb up a ladder the best thing ever. 11 July 2012
