Night before

The night before your flight, the pilot will post a flight update by 6pm on the Global Ballooning mobile app advising the updated weather information and exact meeting time. You will then be asked to check-in/fill out the waiver for your flight via a link on the mobile app. 

Morning of the flight

1.5 hours before sunrise (time confirmed night before), meet your own private pilot at Pullman on the Park hotel (Melbourne flight) OR Balgownie Estate (Yarra Valley flight) for your sunrise flight at the designated time. There will be one last weather-check in readiness for your flight and a short flight briefing.

Launch Site

We will drive to the launch site, which is determined by the wind direction on the morning. At the launch site, your private pilot and crew will begin inflating the WICKED balloon, which can take up to 20min. 

You will then board the balloon and enjoy an exclusive approximate one-hour balloon flight, enjoying the scenery of the spectacular Melbourne CBD OR Yarra Valley.


As the sun rises you will gently float up into the sky for approximately an hour. We often hear how surprised passengers are with the feeling of security and the fact that there’s effectively no sensation of movement.

Your pilot will ascend and descend at varying heights of up to 3000 feet and uses the wind direction/speed at different heights in order to steer the balloon. Have your camera ready to experience the wonder!

Landing & Pack Up

Your pilot will choose a landing site based on conditions, access and suitability. As the balloon approaches the ground, a vent is released at the top of the balloon letting the hot air escape – make sure you look UP to see the beauty of the air escaping. In calm winds, there may be a “stand up landing”, meaning that the balloon will calmly rest on the ground with little to no impact. In moderate winds, the balloon may drag with moderate to high winds & you’ll experience the fun of a lay-over landing. Global’s ground crew will greet you as your balloon lands. Deflating the balloon is the best part. Get involved by rolling over the top of the envelope and help push the air out or watch from a distance.

Optional Breakfast

Once we’re packed up, it’s back to the meeting place where you can indulge in an optional sparkling buffet breakfast at Pullman on the Park Hotel OR Balgownie Estate.

Your pilot will post complimentary photo memories of your experience on the Global Ballooning mobile app for you to download.
