Experience the thrill of ascending over a changing landscape at sunrise, suspended in a basket, floating under a spectacular hot air balloon. The cold air hits your cheeks, clouds floating past, the hot flames above warm you up under the morning sky…as you take flight…up, up and float away.
Some prefer the scenic route to the Yarra Valley, traversing roads through gnarly vineyards and misty farms until a landscape worthy of silence appears. But the journey across Victoria’s most-loved wine region is unrivalled by hot air balloon. Just an hour from the bustle of Melbourne CBD, we rise with the sun and finish with a champagne breakfast at Balgownie Estate.
Start your morning and ski season right with a sunrise hot air balloon flight over Mansfield. Situated in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, Mansfield is surrounded by grazing land, mountain forests, and stunning scenery.
Convenient and classic - the Pullman foyer is where you'll meet our pilots for your Melbourne flight. Perfect for those who prefer a bit of extra sleep before the balloon flight and wanting a wide range of comforts in a convenient location, including an outdoor swimming pool, sundeck, fitness centre, spa, sauna and 24 hour dining options.
We love our city, and hope you do too. Global Ballooning Australia have incorporated other tours to combine with a balloon flight, providing an all-inclusive experience.
Why stop at ballooning? Our professional office staff will be more than happy to organise a package tailored to your interests, whether you are visiting from overseas or a local wanting to embrace the city you live in. There is something for everyone!
The Yarra Valley is full of things to see and do and make hot air ballooning a fantastic experience to enjoy whilst flying over wineries, vineyards and countryside.
Being home to a countless number of wine, ciders and ale’s, there are numerous tour companies which Global Ballooning Australia incorporate with the hot air balloon flights. We want you to make the most of this award-winning region and discover what the Valley has to offer.
UPDATE 21 Sept 2020: To all our wonderful passengers, in line with the recent Victorian government announcement, all flights are currently suspended until further notice. Please follow our Facebook & Instagram pages for key updates.
If you would like to enjoy a balloon flight with your loved ones or colleagues when we re-open OR celebrating a special occasion during this current isolation period, we will be most grateful you considered a gift voucher - there is nothing quite like a hot air balloon flight to look forward to when restrictions are lifted!
