1h Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight over Melbourne - Global Ballooning Australia
Insta-worthy and truly a once-in-a-lifetime flight! Melbourne is the only major city in the world that you can commercially hot air balloon over. Take in one of Australia's largest cities from magnificent heights - you'll fly over or around the sights of Melbourne city and suburbs depending on where the wind takes you.
The entire experience lasts 3-4 hours in total so usually completed between 8-10 am depending on the time of year.

Sunrise: Flight for approximately 1 hour Land: The pilot will land the balloon; passengers can assist in packing up the balloon. Breakfast: All passengers are driven back to the meeting point (Pullman Hotel) which is where breakfast is held (if included in your booking)
