Overview

Sunrise is the perfect time of day to experience hot air ballooning whether it is your first time or your 200th, this experience will leave you in awe of the beauty of this sleeping city beneath you.

With flight preparation, the choice is yours, roll up your sleeves and help prepare the balloon for flight or sit back and enjoy the spectacle as our pilot fires up the balloon.

The balloon will climb slowly to cruising altitude; you will drift silently with the wind and take in the most magnificent perspective of Melbourne available only from a hot air balloon.

We average over an hour in the air each morning. You are likely to take in many of Melbourne's landmarks such as the Yarra River, MCG, Arts Centre, Rialto Tower, the Royal Botanic Gardens and many more of Melbourne's lovely parks and gardens.

After the flight we pack up the balloon and head off to breakfast and a glass of champagne to celebrate your adventure of a lifetime.

Collins Kitchen at Grand Hyatt Melbourne is your final destination of the morning to relax, reflect and indulge. Nestled in the heart of Melbourne and named after its prestigious location on Collins Street, Collins Kitchen will take you on a culinary journey.

Afterwards we will present all passengers a flight map and certificate recognising your daring in joining us on a hot air balloon flight over Melbourne.

Please Note:

Sunrise times differ throughout the seasons so meeting times are clarified with you when reconfirming your flight the night before. Your pilot will clarify your wake up and meeting times for the morning along with a weather forecast prepared by the aviation department at the weather bureau.

On the morning of your flight, we will make the final decision to fly. We will only call you out if the weather is favourable for a balloon flight.

For visitors to Melbourne and locals staying at a hotel in town complimentary transfers are available upon request.
