Your hot-air balloon experience begins with pickup from your Melbourne hotel or a designated meeting point in the Yarra Valley.

On arrival, you’ll climb aboard a hot-air balloon and ascend into the sky—simultaneously with the sun. Watch the sunrise over the vineyards of the Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s most famous wine regions, and listen to narration focusing on the passing scenery.

Following your 1-hour tour, return to land and, if you’ve upgraded, enjoy a breakfast from an a la carte menu accompanied by sparkling wine, orange juice, tea, and coffee.
