Global Ballooning Australia

Start your Yarra Valley day with a sunrise hot air balloon experience with Global Ballooning Australia. Well known for it's countryside glamour, wildlife and wine varieties. Hot air balloon flights began here by Global Ballooning Australia in 1992 and have been a popular region to fly balloons ever since.

Unlike the Melbourne location, the Yarra Valley provides views of rolling hills, green landscapes and the chance to see some kangaroos feeding on breakfast as you fly over them during sunrise. After your flight, enjoy a sumptuous sparkling breakfast. 

Due to the formation of the Valley, flights actually proceed more often than they do over Melbourne city. Global Ballooning Australia offers a sustainable ballooning experience, with passenger safety and enjoyment their main priority.
