Where better for a champagne balloon ride, than over the Yarra Valley! Launching early as the sun has started to rise, the morning breeze will have you drifting over lush landscapes that begin to broaden with the light. With seemingly endless horizons and an incredible mosaic of natural beauty, the Yarra Valley is a picture perfect launch location for a ballooning adventure overhead.

With epic 360 degree views, you’ll get to lose yourself in the stunning vistas that unfold before you.

After an hour of escape on the wind it will be time to come gently back down to the ground. With unforgettable memories created, it’s time to raise a toast to this unforgettable Yarra Valley balloon ride with a delicious champagne breakfast served at the Balgownie Estate.
