Full description
A spectacular way to see the best of the Yarra Valley, by hot air balloon. Combine a flight and wine tour, a perfect way to spend a day in the Yarra Valley. Let the breeze usher you in a hot air balloon along corridors of grape vines and over the Yarra River as you take in breathtaking views of mountains that surround the spectacular valley. These breathtaking views change with the seasons and are especially awe inspiring when taken in from a vantage of 3,000 feet. Enjoy a sense of timelessness and adventure, combined with the comfort of knowing you are in safe and expert hands. 

Enjoy a delicious champagne breakfast before meeting your next group and enjoying a day in the vineyards of the Yarra Valley.

Winery tours have never been so much fun! This full-day tour takes in some of Victoria's best wineries in the stunning region of the Yarra Valley, just an hour’s drive from Melbourne.

Begin by learning the art of the swirl, sniff, and slurp from your expert wine guide, and then try a range of cellar door tastings. Move on to lunch at the next venue and enjoy a winery restaurant meal with a glass of wine.

In the afternoon you’ll travel through the gorgeous scenery to a smaller boutique winery for some tastings and finish the day at Domaine Chandon, the Australian house of the legendary Moet & Chandon. Tour the facilities and relax at the cellar door with a glass of famous bubbly. Return to Melbourne having had an unforgettable day out in the Yarra Valley. Return to Melbourne by 4.30pm - 5pm.

Great Tour

My wife and I really enjoyed this package tour. From the start, Barb at Australian Wine Tour Co. gave us friendly, efficient and polite service in answering our queries prior to and subsequent to booking. As ballooning is weather dependent, there is a chance that the tour may be cancelled/postponed. We did have to shift to another day, but luckily our agenda was very free so it was not an inconvenience. The balloon tour conducted by Nick, Kat and the pilot Eddie was really fantastic. Big props to them, and although it is a bit expensive, it is definitely worth it for the views and experience. Breakfast was nice as well. The Wine Tour segment was also very well organized, and we really have to thank our guide, John. He was charming, funny and knowledgeable, and made the tour a success. My only slight complaint was it may have been a bit rushed, but that was due to the holiday season traffic rather than John, who did his best to fit everything in the time allotted. 10/10 guys!
