You'll fly in a hot air balloon for approximately one hour over the city of Melbourne and surrounding suburbs, completing the experience with a buffet champagne breakfast at the Pullman on the Park.
We meet at Pullman on the Park Hotel around an hour before sunrise (you will be advised of the exact time when you phone the duty pilot the night before your flight). Your hot air balloon pilot will give you a short briefing. You will then be transported to the balloon launch site where you may help with the launch, or stand back and take pictures. Then away we go, floating gently over the city of Melbourne in our beautiful hot air balloon.
Your balloon flight will last for approximately one hour. After we make our final landing and pack the balloon away, we head back to PULLMAN ON THE PARK where you can celebrate your morning over breakfast.
Hot air ballooning is an audience participation activity and you will be encouraged to assist with the set up and pack away of the balloon itself. It is an active morning in the outdoors, so do wear clothes that can get stained or dirty.
Please note: The balloon burners sometimes drip water mixed with Carbon. Global Ballooning Australia will not be responsible for clothing that is stained or damaged as a result of our adventure activity.
Wear clothes as for hiking, including sturdy shoes, warm socks and a cap, plus sunglasses.
