It’s a wonderful thing, to be able to give someone the experience of a lifetime. Global Ballooning Australia have shared a sunrise with over 100,000 people since 1992. They are proud of their safety record, and care deeply about their guests’ experience, but for them, it’s about the people they meet along the way and the pristine natural playground they call their office.

Operating 364 days a year, they rise before the sun almost every day over Melbourne city, Yarra Valley & Mansfield because they believe there is something magical about experiencing the world from the sky.

Your adventure starts before the city stirs. Birdsong begins as balloons inflate. As the earth falls away, you rise with the sun. There is no need to travel far, and no better way to see the world’s most liveable city – Melbourne. For an hour, it’s just you and the sky. Some prefer the scenic route to the Yarra Valley or Mansfield, traversing roads through gnarly vineyards and misty farms until a landscape worthy of silence appears.
