Melbourne balloon flights

Melbourne - make the most of your city experience

Enjoy a truly remarkable experience of a sunrise hot air balloon flight in Melbourne - a world-class experience. There is no other major city around the world where you can traverse by hot air balloon.

It starts with an alarm; that familiar shrill that drags you from bed and dares you to meet the dawn. Today is different. Your adventure starts before the city stirs. Birdsong begins as balloons inflate and you find yourself drawn to the heat of the flame. As the earth falls away, you rise with the sun. There’s no need to travel far, and no better way to see the world’s most liveable city. Sail the breeze beside sparkling skyscrapers and follow the Yarra River as it unwinds through parks and gardens. For an hour, it’s just you and the sky. This is what freedom feels like; you have nowhere to be but here. Melbourne is just waking up – and you’ve already crossed something off your bucket list.

Take a look at our accommodation and experience packages available to pair with your balloon flight OR book a flight with or without champagne breakfast.

 

About Melbourne Ballooning:

  • A 365 degree view of Melbourne and surrounds. We cannot guarantee a flight over the city as it completely depends on the wind. You could end up flying over the city with sightseeing landmarks such as Eureka, MCG and Port Philip Bay or over the suburbs with a view of the city. 
  • The baskets include cushioning around the inside for comfort as well as rope handles when in the landing position. 
  • A safe, comfortable experience which meets the standards of CASA.
  • Each basket can hold 10-12 passengers. 
  • We can fly up to 5 balloons at any one time over Melbourne so look out for our us!
  • Children under the age of 7 years old are unable to fly due to safety regulations.

Below's video showcases both Melbourne and Yarra Valley but please keep in mind that they are two completely different flights:
