Yarra Valley

melbourne, australia

Up, up and away we go! At Yarra Valley, ballooning is one of the most beloved pastimes for young ones and those who aren’t afraid to keep their childlike spirit. Wave goodbye to your friends down below as you watch the balloon rise up into the clouds. The friendly balloon pilots, who are natives to the region, can tell you all about the site as you observe it from a bird’s eye view.

Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s most prominent winery areas, is a vision of lusciously green fields, trees and plants against a backdrop of the ever-changing skies. Somewhere along the way, you’ll be able to spot the Yarra River and its surrounding towns.

Assembly times for the flights usually start before sunrise, so try to get enough rest the night before the big day. After your adventure, treat yourself to a champagne breakfast at Rochford Wines, a well-known stopover point for those who’ve been up in the air.
