Enjoy a truly remarkable experience of a sunrise hot air balloon flight over Melbourne – a world-class experience.
Your day will begin with an early start, as your ballooning adventure starts before the city stirs. As the earth falls away, you rise with the sun. There’s no need to travel far, and no better way to see Melbourne, often names the world’s most liveable city. We sail over 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.
Form the balloon, you will enjoy a 365 degree view, perfect for sightseeing landmarks such as Eureka, Melbourne Cricket Ground and Port Philip Bay. The baskets include cushioning around the inside for comfort as well as rope handles when in the landing position.

The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.
Mr & Mrs Hall, Magnificent New Zealand
We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
