Float calmly over the botanical gardens and Yarra Bend Park before checking out the city skyline. You’ll also see spectacular views of the Port Phillip Bay and the Dandenong’s.
Melbourne is regarded as the hot air ballooning capital of Australia. Year round there are balloons floating high and low over the city skyline. It is also the largest city in the World where balloons are allowed to fly above.
You will meet your pilot and half before sunrise. At the Sofitel you are welcome to complimentary tea and coffee before being transported by bus to the launch site.
Once you arrive at the launch site, the balloon will be inflated. This is a great opportunity for you to take some photos.
One inflated you will gently and silently rise up into the air. There is plenty to see from the city skyline, the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Port Phillip Bay, the Botanical Gardens, Melbourne’s greater suburbs and the Yarra River.
After gently landing back on the ground in one of Melbourne’s famous parks, the balloon will be packed away and it’s time to relax as you are taken back to the Sofitel for a champagne breakfast.
