Take to the skies and experience the adventure and romance of Hot Air Ballooning in the beautiful Yarra Valley!
Your magical journey begins early in the morning when you meet your professional and friendly Blue Skies Ballooning crew and fellow passengers at the Fergusson Winery in Dixons Creek.
Enjoy a coffee and short safety briefing before we travel to the launch site in a 4WD vehicle.
At the launch site, guests are welcome to get involved in the inflation of the balloon or you can simply stand back, take some spectacular photographs and watch in amazement as the balloon comes to life.
Feel the anticipation build as you board your balloon and gently take off into the skies to enjoy a unique bird’s eye view of the Yarra Valley farms and vineyards in the still of the early morning.
You’ll fly for approximately 45 to 60 minutes on your Yarra Valley hot air ballooning adventure, the exact time in the air is determined by wind speeds and wind directions on the day, and when your Pilot determines the best and safest landing option.
Your ground crew will follow the balloon, maintaining radio contact with your pilot, and will generally be waiting for you on the ground at your landing location.
On landing the balloon will be packed and after a few photos we return to the winery for a delicious Winery breakfast with a glass of bubbles - The perfect ending to a truly magical morning.
An ideal experience for birthdays and special occasions
