Our Yarra Valley Flights
Amazing birds eye views of the Dandenongs to the South and the Great Dividing Range to the North. On a clear day you might even catch a glimpse of Melbourne City out to the South West!
We meet at Yarra Valley Restaurant & Courtyard, 3 Bell Street, Yarra Glen VIC 3775
Coffee and tea ready for you while you complete your flight documents.
Our meeting time is generally about an hour before sunrise and varies throughout the year as the time of sunrise changes. Your pilot will confirm the exact meeting time the evening before. Please read our Preparing for the flight page.
Your experienced Blue Skies team has been flying balloons over the Yarra Valley vineyards since the 1990’s and your Pilot will be able to point out the highlights as you drift above the Vineyards and paddocks in the gentle early morning air.
The gentle and stable climate of the Yarra Valley has helped produce award winning cool climate wines. Happily, it also produces conditions ideal for hot air ballooning.
Our Yarra Valley pilots reckon that flying a balloon over the Valley Vineyards on a crisp clear morning is about as good as it gets!
Our many launch sites at farms and reserves around the Valley generally allow us to fly across local vineyards for a landing around the Yarra River near the Yarra Glen township.
Leave plenty of time to visit the local wineries to taste your favourite varieties.
