Location

Soar over Victoria's verdant Yarra Valley wine region on this 1 hour hot air balloon flight that provides outstanding views of this famous part of Australia, capping off the experience with a delicious buffet champagne breakfast! Departing early in the morning when the air is at its clearest, you'll join your friendly ballooning guides at a serene launch point surrounded by rolling hills and the iconic vineyards of the Yarra Valley before the balloon inflates, you hop in the spacious basket, and begin to ascend up, up and away until you're at a suitable height.

Hot air ballooning is an utterly tranquil and peaceful experience that is only further enhanced by the greenery of the Yarra Valley; see the likes of the Yarra River, hills and mountains from thousands of feet above as the sunrise slowly spreads its warm, glowing light over the panorama below. Be sure to bring your camera as you'll come away with some unforgettable shots of the Yarra Valley that are seen by relatively few people - definitely something to show your friends and family once the flight is complete! Cap it all of with a delicious breakfast served at the popular Rochford Wines winery - served in buffet style and including champagne - for an overall memorable experience. If you're looking to go ballooning outside Melbourne, be sure to book yourself a Yarra Valley hot air ballooning adventure today and check another item off your bucket list!

First the good things
Rachel Mugg 10 months ago

First the good things, Global Ballooning has excellent contact right through and we're on time picking us up. The breakfast was so good, it was a buffet, there was pastries, cereal and hot food and you could try some wine. I loved how our pilot took a photo of us up in the air and we could download for free. The bad thing, was I felt it should've been cancelled, there was very poor visibility as it was so cloudy and it was showering when we packed up, so we were wet right through and cold. We were told the night before to bring spare shoes, which was too late for us as we were in Melbourne already. We ended up spending 40min drying our shoes with a hair dryer as we had another tour that afternoon. If it was a lovely day it would of been worth the money but it wasn't for us. I was told they checked the forecast but mine had said all week we were expecting showers.
