  • Overview

    The Yarra Valley is one of Australia's most spectacular winery regions, with outstanding vineyards and mountains. Located only one hour from Melbourne’s CBD, it is a natural amphitheater making it the perfect location for a ballooning experience: great views, native fauna and flora, excellent food and wine, and stable weather. Let the breeze usher you along the corridors of grape vines and over the Yarra River as you lose yourself to the breathtaking views of the mountains surrounding the valley. This region has excellent locally grown food/wine and makes for a brilliant day spent in the countryside!

    Amazing experience with Global Ballooning Australia, staff were very friendly and professional. Highly recommend and would fly with them again. They are very informative, emails prior to your flight day, knowledgeable with Yarra Valley. Theo our transfer driver and Brian our pilot were all very nice. You get an amazing experience with setting up and packing down the balloon. Spectacular views of the Yarra Valley. Each experience will be unique as the wind and weather determines how the balloon will fly. Also definitely recommend adding the food option as it includes a Buffet breakfast with Tea, Coffee & Sparkling wine!

    Amazing experience hot air ballooning around the Yarra Valley. Our pilot Brian was great and informative and his sense of humour was decidedly quirky. All aspects of this experience was exceptional. From the phone call to make the booking , emails and the app to keep us informed about the event to the Ground crew who assisted us with transport etc on the day. Whilst in the air the views were picturesque and the sunrise was spectacular. Highly recommend.

    It was fantastic. Have a look, in the morning they pick us up from the hotel in Melbourne, then a travel 1 hour to Yarra Valley, Theo and Raine so nice, and friendly. When we arrive in Yarra Valley we help to assemble the balloon. Then we meet Edward, the pilot of the balloon, so friendly and take care of us, always taking the control of any risk in the activity. After finishing the amazing travel, we when to the restaurant to get a so good breakfast. Theo brought us back to the hotel. 100% recommended. Thank you.

    Had a wonderful experience with Global Ballooning Australia in the Yarra Valley in late January! From booking online, right through to the experience on the morning it was seamless! The information provided was accurate, and the team professional! It was an absolutely perfect morning for our flight! It was fantastic to have the opportunity to be involved in the setup, and many hands certainly did make light work with pack up, following our very smooth paddock landing!
