There are few major cities in the world that allow hot air balloon flights above them and Melbourne is one of them.

A Melbourne city balloon flight starts prior to sunrise when you will be collected by your guide and transferred to the meeting point.  As the birdsongs begin, your giant balloon inflates then you will find yourself drawn to the warmth of the flame.  The earth falls away as you rise with the sun and soon enough you will be sailing the breeze alongside sparkling skyscrapers and along the Yarra River as it unwinds through parks and gardens. See Melbourne's famed landmarks from the air, from the Dandenong Ranges through to Port Phillip Bay before descending back to earth.
