Yarra Valley is one of Victoria's oldest wine regions, dating back to the 1800s. Located just an hour's drive from Melbourne's CBD, it offers a natural amphitheater, making it ideal for a ballooning tour. Enjoy the rush of the balloon flight as you glide with the breeze and take in the stunning views below you. The fact that your balloon flight takes place at sunrise makes it all the more beautiful, so gear up for an experience you’ll remember forever. At the end of your tour, you will receive a souvenir of your experience–a flight certificate!
know before you go
- All passengers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The ballooning company will be sighting proof on the morning of the flight as per government regulations.
- Hot air ballooning is a weather-dependent activity which means the flight is not guaranteed to proceed every day. You MUST check your flight details the night before your flight (between 6 to 7pm) to find out if the flight is proceeding and the pickup time. Failure to do so may result in missing out on important communication, and you might miss your flight. Please check your flight status here.
- Please note that the exact time and flight direction will vary depending on weather conditions.
- If you are not familiar with the area or traveling on a weekend or local public holidays /school holidays, please check your timetable or driving route beforehand, and allow extra traveling time for unexpected delays to ensure you do not miss your check-in.
- The minimum age to participate in this tour is 6 years old. Children between the ages of 6 and 12 years are welcome to fly accompanied by a parent or guardian.
- Personal belongings taken on board are at your own risk.
- Smoking is not permitted on balloons.
- No flammable items or dangerous goods are allowed on board.
- Check with your medical practitioner if you have a pre-existing medical condition (including but not limited to being pregnant) that may be affected by the physical nature of hot air ballooning.

- Warm socks. Your feet can get wet and cold in the early morning dew, you may like to bring a change of socks.
