What to expect
Escape to the gorgeous Yarra Valley for a full day of excellent wine, gourmet cuisine and unspoiled natural beauty. The adventure begins with early morning pickup at your Melbourne CBD hotel for the 1-hour drive to Yarra Valley. Alternatively, you can make your own way to Balgownie Estate if you’re already staying in the area. At daybreak, climb aboard a hot air balloon for a thrilling ride over the valley’s sprawling vineyards, orchards and elegant estates, with views of the sloping mountains beyond. Enjoy an unforgettable sight as the sun rises and bathes the landscape in an array of colorful hues. After landing back on solid ground, energize for the day with a gourmet Champagne breakfast featuring hot and cold favorites accompanied by coffee, tea, juice and a glass of Chandon sparkling wine. Continue on with your small group on a tour of four of the Yarra Valley’s premium wineries. Enjoy cellar door tastings at Punt Road and Yering Farm within your day, where you can learn about the winemaking process as you sip. When it’s time for lunch, settle in at Balgownie Estate for a gourmet meal accompanied by a glass of estate wine. In the afternoon, get bubbly with a private walking tour of the famous Domaine Chandon winery — the Australian outpost of France’s famous Moet & Chandon Champagne purveyors. Toast your Yarra Valley vacation with a glass of sparkling wine amid the beautiful surroundings. The tour concludes at Domaine Chandon in the afternoon, where you can continue exploring the Yarra Valley on your own or enjoy complimentary return transport to four convenient central Melbourne locations.

Wonderful experience
A wonderful experience. Our pilot Ronald had a textbook flight and landing. Beautiful calm weather along with amazing views. I’m scared of heights but have always wanted to try ballooning. Staff keep you well informed of Safty requirements and I felt securer in the basket. I recommend ballooning anyone wanting to try something different you won’t regret it. Thank you to everyone for this experience.

Thanks Wendy, I also have a fear of heights but never when I am in a balloon - it is so tranquil and peaceful floating above. And safety is always our number one priority. I will pass on your positive feedback to Ronald and we look forward to flying you again. You might like to try flying over Melbourne next time as it is the only major city in the world that you can fly over in a hot air balloon. Danielle and the GBA team

Perfect balloon flight over the Yarra valley.
Apr 2021 • Couples
We had had an amazing flight with Sanchiro as our pilot. A perfect day and a perfect flight. I am not great with heights but it was so smooth and gentle that it somehow made the height ok. An amazing experience that I am pleased we did with Global ballooning.

We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your hot air ballooning experience tomrG9612JQ! It's always great to hear that we were easy to deal with - over many years of experience we have developed an informative process to advise all our passengers with the most up to date flight information. We are the only Victorian ballooning company to use a mobile app. We have found this to be a great way to communicate as it allows us to send notifications. We also love the champagne breakfast - it's the perfect way to end the morning. Kind wishes, Danielle and the GBA team

A wonderful morning balloon flight followed by a sumptuous breakfast
Mar 2020
It was my birthday, and a bucket list adventure. Beginning with a fantastic dinner at Ray's Restaurant and overnight luxury stay at Balgownie Resort. The flight took around 1 hour, and silently drifted over Hurstbridge, Panton Hill and Lake Winnakie/Sugarloaf Dam before gently landing at Yerring Station.
The crew were fantastic and everyone on board had a fantastic time.

Absolutely spectacular day
Feb 2020 • Couples
What can I say but WOW!! From start to finish they were so professional and communication was A1. The balloon ride over the Yarra Valley was over & above our expectations. Such a magical experience. Then onto the winery tour with Shane as our guide was fantastic. He knew so much about wines & the history of the Yarra Valley. Highly recommend doing both 😀

Blast of a day!!!!

Great great fantastic day, from 4am when Bambi the story telling fun bus driver & his organisational cohort picked us up from our meeting point to the cool calm collected Ballon pilot taking us on a magical flight over the Yarra Valley and the fantastic champagne breakfast to finish.
Then onto the winery tour and once again a fantastic fun bus driver called Tony telling us plenty of facts along with a few exaggerated tales to mix with a few wines from a few winery’s. Magic day 👍

Sounds unbelievably awesome, the perfect pair of tours to complement the region of Yarra Valley. Our dedicated staff make the experience that little bit more personalised from start to finish. Thanks for flying with us and making the most of your visit to the Yarra Valley. I hope you were able to buy some wine as a souvenier as well!
