What is it? Hot air balloons aren’t just for the countryside – they fly over Melbourne's pretty city too.
Why go? If you can handle dragging yourself out of bed well before dawn then the flight really is worth it. Unsurprisingly there are not a lot of people around at sunrise, and drifting over the city in the dawn light feels surreal. Where you start, travel and land in your balloon is always a mystery as the flights are determined by each day’s conditions – meaning you might see some of your favourite Melbourne locations from above or discover some new gems.
Don't miss: A flight over the Yarra Valley is equally as impressive.
