One hour balloon flight over the Yarra Valley.
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. As you soar over patchworks of vines set on rolling hills and surrounded by mountains, lightness comes over you – a sense of freedom from the everyday. As the sun rises, so does your spirit, floating over the natural amphitheatre. Just an hour from Melbourne CBD, it doesn’t take much to escape the bustle and reconnect with nature.
