Start your day off with a spectacular sunrise hot air balloon ride in the majestic Yarra Valley!
After an early start with hotel pick-up, you'll be transported to Balgownie Estate, just one hour from Melbourne. Listen carefully as your expert pilot demonstrates how to get these giant balloons up in the air. Then before you know it, you'll be floating up to watch the sun rise over the rolling hills of the Yarra Valley. Enjoy sweeping views of the mountains to one side, the vineyards beneath you, and to the south, the edges of Melbourne. Your professional pilot will provide you with detailed explanations of landmarks and places of interest along the way.
Upon landing you'll be encouraged to join in the folding and packing up the hot-air balloon. Afterwards, enjoy a crisp glass of champagne and a delicious hot breakfast in the relaxing surroundings of Balgownie Estate, an award-winning winery.
