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 Pullman hotel.
Allow approximately four hours in total, from check-in to the champagne breakfast celebration. The flight itself is one hour.
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.
In the case of windy, wet miserable weather the flight is cancelled at the pilot's discretion. Flights are usually confirmed the night before.
Wear casual and comfortable clothing e.g. jeans and sneakers. Shoes must be flat - no high heels or open toed shoes permitted. Waterproof is preferable.
Bring a hat and your camera as there are some fantastic photo opportunities. The champagne breakfast is not included in the price.
