Global Ballooning Australia offers daily sunrise hot air balloon flights over Melbourne City and Yarra Valley.

To enjoy the best of Victorian country side, ballooning over the Yarra Valley is one of Victoria's most spectacular winery regions. Our focus is on our passengers comfort, safety and enjoyment.
