Witness the spectacular colours of sunrise bathe the Melbourne landscape from a hot air balloon. Depending on the wind at dawn, your ballooning adventure may take you over the CBD, inner suburbs and gardens, with Port Phillip Bay creating the perfect backdrop as you discover the city from the air!
Set your alarm clock early for a magical hot air balloon flight over Melbourne at sunrise. You will be picked up from your hotel or designated meeting location before first light and be transported to the launch site, where you can assist with the inflation of the balloon or simply stand back and take pictures. After a short safety briefing it's time for lift off! Drift gently over the city of Melbourne following the Yarra River as it winds through parks and gardens, and soak in stunning panoramas of the city skyline and local attractions. Upon landing, you're invited to help pack the balloon away before being heading back to the meeting point.
The hot air balloon flight is one hour in duration.
You will lose the full cost of your flight if you fail to show up for your flight. You may send someone else in your place if you wish.
The price quoted is for one person. There will be a minimum of four and a maximum of ten people in the basket during your flight.
