Enjoy the sunrise over the Melbourne skyline with this unforgettable hot air balloon flight; you'll see the city like never before!

Hot Air Balloon Ride

We'll pick you up from the Sofitel Melbourne hotel on Collins Street. From here, we'll head to the take-off area, although which area we use will depend on the direction of the wind. Then, get ready, because it's time to fly!

Once in the balloon, we'll take to the skies and soar over Melbourne and it's surrounding areas, and you'll have an incredible bird's eye view of Eastern Freeway, Albert Park, the city centre skyline, the Australian Open Tennis Centre, the Yarra River, the Melbourne Cricket Ground and more.

After you've enjoyed the sunrise and the breathtaking views, we'll land in a safe area, which will vary depending on the weather conditions and the wind direction. From here, we'll take you back to the initial meeting point.
