2 Overview

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.
