There’s no such thing as an ugly sunrise in Victoria and a view of one high up in a balloon is something to behold.
The @yarra_valley was even more magical than usual this morning as the inaugural Yarra Valley Balloon Festival floated off at dawn. Check out the hashtag #yvbf15 for more breathtaking photos of this spectacular event. Photo by @alexandrapaige_ #visitvictoria #visitmelbourne #yarravalley @globalballooningaustralia
Surely you’ll explore Melbourne on foot while you’re visiting, but why not see it from the air as well?
A balloon flight from Melbourne usually includes a distant view of the skyline. Even more dazzling, a flight from the Yarra Valley also reveals a faint outline of the city.
That tiny city blocks there in the middle-bottom is 4 times in a row and currently the most liveable city in the world (I didn't make this up 😜) @visitmelbourne ! Enjoying sunrise and have a breakfast at the hotel after that with @globalballooningaustralia team is such an experience! Can't wait to go up again!
No need explaining this one.
Part of the experience is watching the crew set up the balloon and inflate it with some pyrotechnics.
There are no steering wheels on hot air balloons. They go where the wind takes them. So, even if you’ve taken a flight in Victoria before, your next trip won’t look anything like your last one.
Pilots for Victoria’s hot air balloon companies are highly trained and have years of navigation experience. They have the skills to take you way high up and right down to ground level.

A hot air balloon simply floats in the sky, which means it’s easy to hold your camera steady and capture the perfect shot.
There is an incredible silence to a balloon flight. What could be more peaceful than watching the sunrise over Melbourne without any city noises?
A hot air balloon experience in Victoria doesn’t take all day. In fact, it doesn’t take much of your day at all. Flights leave at sunrise and by the time you land, you’ll still have a full day to explore on foot.
We’d call a hot air balloon ride in Victoria a ‘once-in-a-lifetime-experience’ but that would imply you wouldn’t want do it twice. Interested in your first basket ride? To find out more about hot air ballooning in Victoria, visit our website www.visitmelbourne.com.
