Balloon Melbourne

Imagine taking an incredible hot air balloon flight over Melbourne; as in, ‘right over’ Melbourne.

This is the kind of balloon ride other cities can only dream about. So take to the skies with the awakening day and see the cityscape from a whole new vantage point, as it comes alive, bathed in the broadening rays of the rising sun. Oh yes, this is ballooning.

This is ballooning, Melbourne style!

1 hour balloon flight
Incredible views
Champagne brekky
Lifelong memories



Ignite your senses with a balloon ride of Australia’s second biggest city, Melbourne. Starting your adventure whilst the majority of the city is still asleep, prepare to experience a vantage point you never thought possible. With the wind as your guide and the growing sun as your companion, you’ll climb gently up over the city at dawn.

As you drift lazily over Melbourne, expect any number of iconic and famous locatins and landmarks to float into view. These can include the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Rod laver Arena, the Botanical Gardens, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Shrine of Remembrance and much, much more! And should you lift your gaze up and outwards the seemingly endless horizons, so you’ll see Melbourne’s suburbs sprawling out away from the city, as well as the shimmering waters of Port Phillip Bay.

After an hour dancing on the breeze, you’ll come back down for a soft landing and an appetite for a delicious champagne breakfast, with which to raise a toast to an unforgettable hot air balloon ride over Melbourne that has created memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime.



Let's Get Aloft!

Once you've arrived at your Melbourne balloon launch, the expert team will get to work prepping the balloon; this of course includes inflating the giant envelope (the big round bit at the top!), and ensuring all equipment is double-checked for fitting and safety. After which, it's time to hop aboad the basket and really start to feel those emotions and anticipation start to pulse.


Float with the Wind!

Jaw-dropping views await, along with an incredible feeling of freedom. Whatever nerves you may have had, have been left far below on the ground, and the sensation of floating above the world is igniting your senses in a way few things in life can do! With the breeze as your personal guide, drift lazily along and capture epic panoramas from a vantage point that is truly unique.


Celebrate Awesome!

With your balloon flight coming to an end, your pilot and ground crew will decide on a landing spot, where you will come back down to earth with the most gentlest of bumps. You will feel elated and be grinning from ear to ear! A balloon ride really is a bucket list item, and you will have just ticked it off - what feeling! Time to celebrate your achievement with a hearty breakfast and a champagne toast!
