What you can expect

Discover Victoria’s beauty from above during a 60 minute hot air balloon flight at sunrise. Wake up to beautiful views of the city as you float peacefully in the skies. Among the highlights that passengers will see are the Australian Tennis Centre, the Yarra River meandering its way around the city and the lush parks and gardens that provide a stark contrast to the Victorian architecture dotted throughout the bustling city. A sunrise hot air balloon flight in Melbourne is a memorable way to begin the day. The flight will last for 1 hour and you can finish off the luxe experience with an optional 5 star champagne breakfast. This is the perfect way to discover a new city or celebrate a special occasion.


What you need to know

How It Works
  • Ballooning is one of the most weather dependant activities you can participate in. We do not steer or drive a balloon, we navigate the winds at different altitudes with the use of the burners to heat up the air inside the envelope (the balloon part of the aircraft) to go higher or by releasing the hot air with the parachute (the very top of the balloon) to descend. Some times during landing the basket and balloon can lay over horizontally, this is a completely normal and safe landing, your pilot will advise you the safe landing position that everyone will be required to practice before take off. There are some fun taks you are welcome to participate in during the inflation and deflation portions of the experience, if you are eager to get involved let our staff know, or sit back and watch the magic unfold.

It was great with Nick & team at Liberty balloon flights

It was great with Nick & team at Liberty balloon flights. We were constantly kept informed on our upcoming flight and what to expect. On the day instruction was very clear, everything was on time. Team managed the overall experience enjoyable and informative. Cheers to the team!
