There is no more spectacular view of Melbourne and the Yarra River than from the basket of a hot-air balloon at sunrise. On this unforgettable tour, experience Melbourne at its most magical as you float over its modern skyscrapers, scenic waterfront, and green parks; enjoy incredible aerial views; and then celebrate your safe landing with a Champagne breakfast (optional).
What to Expect
After an early-morning pickup from your Melbourne hotel, transfer to the launch site in East Melbourne and hop aboard your hot-air balloon for a thrilling ride. After a safety briefing, lift off and soar over the Central Business District and along the Yarra River, following a route chosen by your pilot depending on wind conditions.

From high above the city, get a bird’s-eye view of landmarks like the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Arena, and the Eureka Tower; float over residential neighborhoods, beautiful parks, and scenic waterways; and watch the sunrise over the city.

After about an hour, land and transfer to Pullman Melbourne on the Park, a 5-star hotel close to the Fitzroy Gardens, where you can toast to your unforgettable experience with a glass of Champagne and start the day with a delicious breakfast (if breakfast option selected at booking).

Hello, You do get a refund if the flight is cancelled due to weather, they will let you know the day/night before, most morning flights are fine as ther is little wind around.
