Overview
For things to do in Melbourne, a hot air balloon flight over Melbourne is a breathtaking way to see the highlights of our city. Melbourne’s famous attractions are an unforgettable experience from the air: the MCG, the Shrine of Remembrance, the Albert Park Formula 1 racetrack and the Yarra River winding its way through the suburbs. As you float peacefully in the morning sky, you will experience a side of Melbourne that few people have seen – the birds-eye view.

A hot air balloon flight over Melbourne city is a sensational and luxurious way to see the iconic views of our city. It’s also amazingly rare - there are very few cities in the world that have hot air balloons flying over them.
