Treat yourself and your partner to a hot air ballooning flight over Melbourne, one night's luxury accommodation in a studio apartment and a three course dinner! This is a wonderful way to show someone you love them and spend two memorable days together. Experience hot air ballooning magic!
You and your partner will be staying at The Grand Hotel in the heart of Melbourne. Your studio apartment will have either city or Docklands views and makes for an elegant inner-city retreat.
Think of lofty ceilings, plenty of space, fully equipped kitchen and even a pillow menu! Your room will also feature a LCD TV and in-house movies, a full bath and shower, and complimentary L'Occitane toiletries.
You will enjoy your evening meal at the hotel's Cafe Grand - a three-course seasonal table d'hote dinner (drinks are not included in the price) - before retiring to your room for the night.
The next morning we will pick you up from the hotel before first light. You'll be advised of the exact time the evening before. Your pilot gives you a short briefing and you'll be transported to the launch site, where you may help with the launch or stand back and take pictures.
Close your eyes and imagine yourself drifting silently through the air. You will hear the sounds of Melbourne awakening beneath you and witness the sun rise over the mountains to the north.
After your flight we return to the Grand Hotel where you will top off your hot air ballooning experience with a French champagne breakfast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shell75 This was such a brilliant experience!!!
There was nothing at all that we disliked about this experience. Everything was taken care of from the moment we booked it. All staff and people involved were an absolute pleasure to deal with and looked after all our needs. Have already recommended this experience to friends and family. Had such a fun time that we will certainly do it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 They were very professional resulting in a most enjoyable experience. The package with accommodation made it an easy activity as we did not have to worry about driving or parking on the morning of the flight. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone!
