    Cancellation policy

    These tickets can't be cancelled or rescheduled.

    Melbourne is one of those few cities that offers you the unique experience of flying over in a hot air balloon: grab it while it’s hot! This unforgettable aerial experience lets you admire the serene surroundings of Melbourne while enjoying the thrills of soaring through the skies in a sturdy basket. You’ll be taken to the launch site, where a brief safety orientation lets you know what to do (and more importantly, what not to do).

    Climb aboard the basket and prepare for liftoff as the flame-powered engine sparks to life. Fly over Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD) for a stunning bird’s eye view of the sweeping skyscrapers that dot the banks of the Yarra River. Notice Melbourne’s Cricket Ground and Rod Laver Arena, the charming inner suburbs, emerald parks, and the sparkling city skyline. Touch down and gasp as the massive balloon is flattened and packed away in a remarkably compact size. If you choose the Champagne Breakfast ticket upgrade, you’ll then be taken to Amora Hotel Riverwalk Melbourne, where a hot, savory breakfast paired with sparkling wine awaits you!
