In the early morning light your balloon will drift over Melbourne's parks, gardens and the Yarra River as the city comes to life. As your balloon floats above Melbourne you'll look down on some of the city's iconic venues including the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Park and Albert Park racetrack. Your balloon flight over Melbourne will last for approximately one hour. After the final landing and packing the hot air balloon away, head back to the centrally located Pullman on the Park where you can then stay for breakfast or take a quick 10-minute walk back to the city center.
Where you fly on Melbourne balloon flights:
Balloon flights in Melbourne are weather dependent and your route will be determined by the winds. Your balloon may fly over Melbourne's CBD, which is laid out in a large rectangular grid like pattern on the northern banks of the Yarra River. Alternatively, your Melbourne balloon flight may head over the inner suburbs, parks and gardens to discover why Victoria is labeled the Garden State.

An amazing experience, flying over the city as it wakes up was truly inspirational. Although this is not a cheap tour it really is worth every penny, a once in a life time thing to do . The crew were hugely professional and made you feel safe and in very good hands.
