Yarra Valley Hot Air Balloon Flight & Champagne Breakfast

1. Yarra Valley Hot Air Balloon Flight & Champagne Breakfast

Experience the thrill of ascending over a changing landscape at sunrise, suspended in a basket, floating under a spectacular hot air balloon. The cold air hits your cheeks, clouds floating past, the hot flames above warm you up under the morning sky… as you take flight… up, up, and float away. Join a spectacular hot air balloon experience with a bird's eye view of the picturesque Yarra Valley (located an hour’s drive from Melbourne) – Victoria’s renowned wine region. Operating 364 days of the year (weather permitting) this once-in-a-lifetime tour experience provides an entirely different perspective of the Yarra Valley, beyond the typical tourist itinerary. Take off on a beautiful hot air balloon flight over the Yarra Valley at sunrise. The Yarra Valley is home to 90 vineyards and 35 wineries, many of which hold a reputation for creating world-class wines. See it from an entirely new perspective as you breeze over the picture postcard landscape. Meet your pilot approximately one hour before sunrise (you will be advised of the exact time and location when you phone the duty pilot the night before your flight). Your pilot will give you a short briefing before being transported to the launch site where you may help with the launch or stand back and take photos of the balloon as it is inflated. Then, climb aboard, and away you go gently floating over the Yarra Valley as if you were a cloud. It is truly one of the most magnificently tranquil, picturesque, and dream-like experiences you can do. Afterward, make a final landing, pack the balloon away, and have a champagne breakfast (additional cost of $35pp).

This was a great experience. Ronald was the best pilot full of enormous information that was fun to hear. Being able to help set up and tear down and be apart of the entire process was exhilarating. I would totally do this again.

Awesome experience !

We enjoyed the trip very much ! Mr Brian is very experienced and we felt so safe. Mr Bambi can’t be more awesome !!! We also enjoyed the process of “keeping” the balloon - eye opener ! The breakfast was nice (and Champaign) too !

Definitely the best way to start a day! Beautiful view of Yarra Valley with great people. Our pilot (Brian) and guides (Bambi and Raine) were the best people to be with!

This was the most amazing experience with great guides and fabulous champagne breakfast to finish with was just perfect

10/10 would recommend to anyone holidaying in the Yarra valley, unforgettable experience.
