Global Ballooning Australia is one of the best hot air balloon companies running in Melbourne. Your day starts an hour or so before sunrise, so this can vary depending on what time of year you ride. Hot air balloon rides are commonly run in the wee hours of the morning because that’s when conditions are most stable. The CBD flight can run right through the guts of the city or scoot right around it. If you do ride through the city, you’ll get to see some teeny tiny office workers making their way to their high-rises and spot a few of Melbourne’s most famous icons from above.
Did you know that Melbourne is the only major city in the world where you can fly hot air balloons over the CBD? Seeing Melbourne from way up in the sky brings a whole new perspective to the city. When you're standing, floating, flying or even falling from way above the trees and rooftops you can see things about the city you've missed a thousand times.
